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

Teacher's Comments


Thank you for visiting our class webpage for Pre-K! Please remember to sign up for a conference: this is the only time formally set aside during the school year for parents and teachers to talk about your wonderful kids. My conferences take place in the library due to extended care (available for K-8) happening at the same time in the classroom. The library is on the top floor of the school; please let me know if you would like me to show you where to go before conferences - thanks!

On Tuesday, Oct 21, we venture to the Pumpkin Farm! Please send your child's booster/car seat with them on Tuesday morning. If you are able before Tuesday, please label your child's car seat with their name on a piece of white masking tape - thank you! Please send your child in clothing they will stay warm and dry in on Tuesday.

In the classroom this week our theme is Halloween and Pumpkins. We have been working on tracing, cutting and gluing together candy corn bats, will do a shared writing exercise related to Tuesday's field trip, and will play games and read stories centered around Halloween and pumpkins.

Next Tuesday, Oct 28, is our Halloween Party! Your child is welcome to bring their costume, or a piece of their costume to school to change into for the party. Please leave any pretend weapons that may accompany your child's costume at home :) Parents volunteering at the party are welcome to arrive in costume as well!

Over the past two weeks we have played number bingo (1-20) and worked with phonological objects to isolate and identify beginning sounds. We have worked with the letters h, l, b, f and k. The children are also working with Mrs. Breysse on writing their names using lower case letters.

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!
