The Pre-K Press 

October 2020

  

 

 

We are off to a fantastic start to the school year! The children have done a great job learning our rules and routines. From walking in the halls, finding their stars to stay socially distant, and cleaning up in the classroom, these busy little bees can do it all!  We will begin our daily classroom jobs include line leader, door helper, light helper, and calendar helper. 

 

We enjoyed our Yellow Color Day Celebration and want to thank you for helping your child find his or her treasure. We were impressed with their ability to speak in front of their classmates to tell about what they had brought to share. This is not an easy task for some. They really enjoyed the balloons!

 

We continue working on identifying our names and each letter. The Orange & Black Color Day Celebration is tentatively set for Friday, October 22nd with more information to follow. 

   

Happy Fall to All!
