Please be aware that as the seasons change colds will arise.  If your child has a fever or a stomach virus they must stay out of school for 24 hours.  Please help us keep everyone healthy by keeping your child home if they are showing any kinds of sickness.  Thank you!




As the weather is changing please send in a warmer set of clothes and we will send home the clothes that we have.



Please remind your son or daughter to treat the toys in the classroom as if they are their own.  We are having some toys break beacause of carlessness. Mrs. Calicchio and I go over this with them each day.




I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving with their families, and its hard to believe we only have three weeks until Christmas. This week we will begin to prepare for the Christmas season.  The boys and girls will learn that Advent is the season when we prepare for the birth of Jesus.  They will bring home some pages from their "I Am Special" book that will help them prepare for the Advent season.  They will also make a Christmas chain to help count down the days until Christmas.  Each day they should remove one link, and each Sunday in Advent they should color one candle flame on the wreath and read the prayer on the back.  Finally, the boys and girls will take home a manger scene and they will earn stars at home that they will put on their manger by being good and doing good deeds.



This week the children will learn the letter "Dd" with alphafriend Dudley Duck.  They will recognize its sound and they will learn how to write the letter "Dd", as well as come up with a list of "Dd" words. On Friday, they will bring home the letter book "Dudley Duck".  Please put these books in a ziplock bag so they can be kept safe. Please review these books with your child as well as practice writing their names.



Communication is very important to your child's success.  Please feel free to contact me at the above email at any time if you have any questions or concerns.  I will not be able to get back to you until the end of the school day, which is after 3pm.  



I will be sending home a folder each day with your child.  This folder will be used for any notices or projects that the children worked on in school.  Please send the the folder back to school everyday. Show and tell will begin the week of September 9th.  Please refer to the show and tell link on the left side of the page for more information. 





Please send in a lunch that your child is able to finish on their own.  Be sure to send their lunch with two napkins; we use one as a place mat and one is to be used when they finish their lunch.





 We will go out for recess everyday unless it is too cold or raining.  Please have your child dressed appropriately for the weather and always wear closed toe shoes. If your son or daughter wears rain or snowboots to school, please make sure they have another pair of shoes to change into.




We are looking forward to a great year!!




Warm Regards, 

Mrs. Borrino & Mrs. Calicchio
