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

Teacher's Comments


The Pre-K children will be celebrating Thanksgiving with a "feast" this week! Please send any food items for this event with your child Tuesday morning. Please remember to prepare 20 servings of your item, in such a way that the children will be able to easily serve themselves. Thank you Heather Sorenson for sending out a sign up genius for this fun event! Please let me know if you have any questions!

Over the past 2-3 weeks we have been discussing healthy bodies and healthy food. The children had a lot of fun coloring, cutting out, and "doctoring" people they wrote a story about. Completed stories can be found in the hallway! We also learned what types of foods/drinks help make strong bones, and played a board game in small groups which identified the different food groups. Over the next few days our stories at group time and morning centers projects will reflect the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday. Watch for turkeys to replace the bats on the classroom bulletin board :)

Over the past two weeks we have played games including alphabet bingo, and have continued to identify objects with the same beginning sound. The kids are continuing to enjoy a variety of fine motor activities and are encouraged to write their name using lower case letters.

Please remember that there is no school/no kids club from Wednesday, Nov 26-Friday, Nov 28.

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.
