Dates to Remember:
February 14th—Teddy Bear Picnic
February 17-21—Mid-winter break
Topics of Discussion:
All kinds of bears
Kindness and friendship
On the 14th we ask that all the children bring a teddy bear or other favorite stuffed animal to school. We will have a “teddy bear picnic” during snack time.
We want our focus to be on friends and kindness on the 14th. It would be appropriate to send Valentine’s Day cards but we ask that you do not put their friend’s name on the card (this makes it easier for your child to pass them out.) We encourage you to let your child “write” their own name (it’s a great way to practice). You may want to begin this early in the week so they have time to do it without being rushed. (Often when young children write their name they only want to do it a couple of times in one sitting.)
Please do not send any candy or sweets.
Please complete the attached form and return it. I am trying to find out what types of involvement you are interested in.
Harvest Market tokens—$328.96 (this is much less than we have earned in previous years because the store changed their policies.)
End of the year raffle—this is our largest money maker of the year. We are raffling off a redwood picnic table (and possibly a child size table). We will have lots of other raffle prizes, too.
Our fundraising coordinator, Christina Morrill, is beginning to reach out to businesses in the community for donations. If you have personal contact with a business owner and would like to ask them for a donation, please let us know and we will get you the information you will need. If you would like to make a donation, we would love that too!
Please, please, please do not send your sick, still recovering from illness, or feverish child to school.
Mary had a little lamb. She also had the flu.
When she came to preschool, the others got it too.
So, when your child is sick, please keep them home with you
Then the other children can stay happy and healthy too!
