February 2018

  February is full of fun things to do in preschool.  Our theme for the month is “Discovering Dinosaurs.”  Show n’ Tell will focus on a dinosaur theme in February.  
  We will also be talking about Lent this month as our religious theme.  
  Catholic Schools Week is Jan. 28- Feb.2.  The all school mass to begin CSW will be on Sun. Jan. 28 at 9:30AM.  We will meet in the gathering space by 9:15 and will sit with our buddies.  There is a donut social following mass in the school cafeteria.  General CSW activities will include the preschool, such as birthday bags and food drive.  If preschool is in session for an activity such as crazy hair day- they are welcome to join in. More details about the week will follow.  
  The Valentine’s Day party will be on February 12th for the 4’s and February 13th for the 3’s.  Please send in valentines for your child to exchange and a decorated (labeled) valentine box.  We ask that you do not address the cards- only sign your child’s name to them.  There are 14 children in the 3 yr. old class and 16 children in the 4 yr. old class.  A sign-up sheet will be posted for treats.  No snack is needed on party day.  
  **3 Yr. Preschool students will be singing Valentine songs after the Valentine party.  Parents are invited to join us in the preschool room at 11:00AM, and dismissal will follow our singing.  
  There is no school on Mon. Feb. 19 due to President’s Day.  
  A big “THANK YOU” to all our families that contributed to our “Mitten Drive” for the Center for Hope.  Your generosity was truly inspiring!!!  
  Happy Valentine’s Day!  
  Mrs. Swalga, Mrs. Boretzky and Mrs. MacDonald
