“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 so, so much for the heartfelt notes and pictures from the kids received during Teacher Appreciation Week! I certainly feel lucky and appreciated :)

With only 4 weeks to go, there is a lot to remember :) Here we go....

Wednesday, May 27 - Pre-K Celebration. This event will take place on the evening of the 27th, from 6:30-7:30, in the Pre-K classroom. Please remember that each child is welcome to bring two adult guests with them. We ask that siblings stay at home for this event :)

Friday, May 29 - Junior Olympics. This is a day spent outdoors, in school families, playing games. Prior to the 29th, each grade studies a country, and then represents that country during Jr. Olympics. Pre-K will be representing Brazil. If your child would like, they can come to school on the day of Jr. Olympics dressed to represent - popular outfits include soccer uniforms, Brasil's colors (green and yellow), and rainforest animals (kids have come in previously used Halloween costumes - birds, monkeys, jaguars, etc.) All children will be making "Carnival" style masks in the classroom to wear too :) All students will parade around the campus at 9:15; parents are welcome and encouraged to watch! There is also a special hot dog lunch on this day - please find the order form in last Wednesday's newsletter from Kathy Boyle. Please note that Pre-K does NOT participate in the candy sale after lunch :) We are hyped up enough already!

Summer Birthdays - Please remember that we will be celebrating the children with summer birthdays on these dates:

Julia - Wednesday, May 20

Isaiah - Friday, May 22

Connor - Wednesday, May 27

Bridger - Wednesday, June 3

Haiden - Friday, June 5

Tyler - Wednesday, June 10

Tuesday, June 2 - Our last field trip of the year to Carkeek Park. More details re timing and permission slips coming very soon.

10:30 Dismissal on Friday, June 12. NO Kid's Club :)

Pre-K students always look forward to their turn for show and tell. If possible, please help your child come up with 3 "clues" for what it is they decide to share with the group, and practice these with your child before school (a great thing to do while driving to school :) Show and tell is a great way for the kids to practice speaking in front of a group, and we've found it is helpful if the kids have a chance to practice sharing their clues aloud before their actual turn. There are two show and tell "bags" we have the kids put their object into to keep it hidden from the group while they are sitting in front of the class - each is approximately 16 inches long and 16 inches high - please help your child pick an object small enough to fit inside of these bags so that what they are sharing stays hidden. Please let me know if you have any questions - thanks!

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.
