|Welcome to Mrs. B's Pre-Kindergarten class!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the volunteers who continue to respond to the call for classroom volunteers as well as the volunteers who help with cutting projects and behind the scene helpers like our scholastic coordinator, Joby Welch and our signup genius coordinator, Stacey Martin.
We have already had an exciting spring. Grandparents Tea was a wonderful celebration. Your children were adorable – who knew they could square dance! A big thanks to Mrs. Christensen – our wonderful PE teacher who taught pre-k the dance and a big thank you to those of you who provided the treats. Our field trip to Seattle Tilth was fun, educational and tasty! Our May Day parade was fantastic. Great weather, many grateful neighbors and the most enthusiastic pre-k’ers ever! Thank you great parents for providing all the beautiful flowers.
My birthday was in there too and I so appreciated the pictures drawn, the notes from children and parents – the bouquet of flowers was a beautiful blend just like the kids in the class. Thank you all so much for making my birthday very special.
We are in the midst of a plant experiment in the classroom. We are all a little surprised so far but keep posted for further developments. We got another glimpse into gardening with our planting project. The plants you took home are giant sunflowers. They have a good start but will need a sunny location in your yard.
This week Pre-k is beginning our investigation into bugs, insects and spiders as well as weaving in stories and projects to celebrate Mothers Day.
We will wrap up bugs and move right into animals; animals that live in the zoo and animals that live in the jungle. To prepare for Junior Olympics we will learn about animals that live in the rainforest and some of the other ways that make Brazil an interesting place to live.
There are two upcoming events I’d like to explain. The first is Junior Olympics happening on Friday 5/24.
Junior Olympics is a sort of field day with ceremony. It is a long standing tradition at school. Pre-K will be representing Brazil. All students are welcome to come to school that day. After we learn about this exciting place the children are asked to dress in costumes representing Brazil or in something that is related to what they have learned about Brazil. A parade around school gives them an opportunity to show off costumes. On that day, for an hour or so, Pre-K children will be in their school families for various field events. Please volunteer if you would like to be part of the fun. (Don’t fret about the costumes though – many pre-k’ers enjoy dressing as a soccer player)
The second event is the Pre-K Celebration. This year it will be on Wednesday, May 29th at 6:30-730
The Pre-k celebration is an evening event where parent(s) (please, no siblings) and child come to school to celebrate our year in Pre-K. Invitations coming home soon. Please RSVP to Julie if you are not able to attend.
Can't wait to volunteer?We will use Signup Genius as our classroom volunteer sign up tool. Please stay tuned for volunteer opportunities. We are looking for volunteers between 8:30 – 10am to help in this uninterrupted block of time. Your time in the classroom could be interacting with small groups of children playing a game or directing an art project. When working in the classroom you must have completed a background check. On the day of volunteering, just sign-in as a visitor in the school office and wear a visitor’s badge.
You may park ouside the fence at any and all times. Please do not park or drive in the fenced area that is designated staff parking between 8am and 3:30 pm.
