“OLL's challenging and hands-on science program more than prepared my daughter for the rigor of high school science.”

Teacher's Comments


I hope everyone had a relaxing Thanksgiving Holiday. Many thanks for your participation in the Pre-K Thanksgiving feast! Several children enjoyed seconds and thirds on the delicious food brought in.

Now that we are in the Advent Season, our focus has shifted to the meaning of Christmas. This past week in class the Advent Wreath was introduced - one candle was lit, and the children learned what the first candle represents (Hope :) We also learned the song " O Come, O Come Emmanuel," and discovered the larger Advent Wreath on display in the school foyer. Friday families, please remember that the all school Advent Prayer will begin at 8:40 (vs. 8:20) on Fridays to allow for Pre-School and Pre-K to participate. Teachers will be outside for drop off at 8:25 on Friday Dec 12 and 19. Parents are welcome to join as well!

Pre-K will be participating in a service project over the next two weeks. Please help your child pick out a small baby object before Wednesday, Dec 17 to deliver to the Giving Tree in Jubilee Hall. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Over the past week we revisited the letters b, f, h, k, l and t - students seperated phonological objects by beginning sound and found the corresponding letter. The children are also working hard on inset books and pin pushing books to strengthen fine motor skills.

The next round of Thursday hot lunch forms were due Friday, Dec 5th - forms are welcome late with a $5 fee :)

Our last day of school before Christmas break is Friday, Dec 19. Please let me know if anyone is planning on leaving town early - we want to make sure a few items make it home before break begins.

Please remember to check your child's file outside the classroom door daily.

Mrs. Breysse and I would like to welcome parents who are interested in volunteering into the classroom on Tuesday mornings. Please remember that volunteers are required to fill out a background check and complete the "Called to Protect" course. To accomodate time for both of these requirements, a classroom volunteer sign up will be sent out to begin the end of September - thanks!

I would like to thank Jaycee Barrett and Heather Sorenson for their role as room parents this year!

Please let me know if you have questions about anything!






Parent Reminders

Please check your child's file (outside the classroom door) daily.
