“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 the Preschool web page.  

Dear families Happy New Year.... and welcome back to Preschool.   I hope you all enjoyed your break.  Thank you again for your generous Christmas gifts and all your well wishes for my mom and my unexpected trip back to England.  

We are beginning our unit on winter.  The children will learn about the coldest season by taking a look at winter clothing, weather characteristics that occur during this season indoors and outdoors, and winter sports.  Throughout the unit, the children will create snow people and snowflake books.  They will learn about animals that hibernate, enjoy stories about winter and experience making snow and defrosting ice in the sensory table.   We will also be celebrating Chinese New Year; the year of the horse with lanterns and festive foods.  

Pajama Day is also coming in January; details will be posted.   Show and tell will begin again late January and weekly specialists will continue during this second half of the school year: PE with Mrs. Christensen on Wednesdays, Library with Mrs. Lovejoy on Thursdays, and Music and Movement with Mrs Flannagan on Fridays.

Be sure to dress your child in weather appropriate clothing for recess.  We will continue to go outside.  Also a quick reminder rain boots are great but hard to wear in the classroom and during PE or Music and Movement.  Please bring a change of shoes for these occasions.
Thanks so much.
Mrs M
