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

Teacher's Comments


Over the past few weeks Pre-K children have met their school "families," been introduced to their 3rd grade reading buddies, and had the opportunity to eat popcorn and watch a video during school to celebrate comfy cozy day! February is off to a busy start...

On Thursday, Feb 12 both Pre-K classes will celebrate Valentines Day. A huge thank you in advance to volunteers for our party! For Thursday, please help your child sign their name in the "from" section of 6 valentines only to share with their classmates. The children collect Valentines via a "fishing" game we set up in the classroom during the party, so cards are handed out at random. This game is always a highlight, and volunteers signed up to help here will get a kick out of helping the kids catch Valentines!

If you are interested in ordering books through Scholastic book order, please place your order online by Tuesday, Feb 10. I will place the order Tuesday evening :)

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!

3rd quarter Thursday hot lunch forms can be found on the most recent Wednesday newsletter - please remember these are due on or before Thursday, Feb 12.

In the classroom this week the children are making dragons to represent Chinese New Year. When finished, these will hang from the ceiling in the hallway outside the classroom. Candy house stories and photos will be up this week! The kids are great authors - you will enjoy reading their stories :)

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!
