Welcome Back!!!

Ms. Rachel and I look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow.  We have been busy preparing the classroom for the next unit - Amazing Animals.  As part of the unit, we will be opening a vet's office in the Pretend and Learn Center.  If you have any animals that you would like to donate for check-ups, it would be greatly appreciated.  The attached newsletter will share a little more about what else we will be exploring.

Just a quick reminder that the party starts at 2!  I will have sign out sheets if your child will be leaving with you.

We have some extra specials days next week just for PreK.  A flyer will go home in your child's folder today.  Please note that PreK class party is now from 2:00-3:00 Friday, December 16th.  I will have a sign-out sheets and labels on that day so you can sign your students out after the party.
Have a great weekend!!!
Please join us for Celebrations Around the World on Thursday, December 8th, 5:30-7:00.  The PreK Team will be representing Mexico, so stop by to make a poinsettia and enjoy a Mexican Wedding cookie.  We will be outside room 13 on the Purple Ramp.

Magnet Experiment

We had fun seeing which objects were magnetic and not magnetic. There were a few surprises and learned new vocabulary words, such as attraction. Check out Seesaw for pictures.
It is time for the PTO Penguin Patch Shoppe!  A note and budget envelope will be going home today in your child's folder.  Please return the envelope with a list of whom your child will be shopping for and how much they are allowed to spend on each person.  Our shopping day will be Tuesday, December 6th at 9-9:30.

Lost and Found Notice

Please note that all lost and found items will be donated on Thursday, December 15th.  If you are missing any items, you can check the pile in the gym or in the cafeteria.

Please check your child's folder today and there is also a reminder note on your child's backpack.  There is an important form called the Impact Aid Form.  These forms are gifts because each of them provides us the gift of funding.  Impact Aid funds make up almost half of our district's budget.  All forms are due by Friday, 11/18 at noon.  I will send reminders home as needed.  
Thank you in advance for all your help in completing the forms in a timely manner.
