School notes:

Starting this month, I will be pulling out the children during gym time to work with them in small groups.  Those children that know all letters and their sounds will start working on sight words.

Also, I will be starting the Zipper Club.  If your child can zip his or her jacket, I will have them write their name on the Zipper Club poster,  This will be hung in the hall for the entire school to see.  This will give the children some incentive to want to learn.  They really enjoyed this activity last year!
 
Remember, we have gym every Wednesday.  Please have your child wear gym shoes on this day.

I am looking for a parent to help out with computers on Monday, January 26th from 10:30 a.m. to  11:30 a.m.  If interested, please let me know.

A big thank you goes out  to Mrs. Mason (Mary Jane's mom), our head room mom, for putting together the four year old Christmas party. I also want to thank all the parents who helped her out in making sure the party ran smoothly.  The children had a great time!!!!   
 
I have two gifts that were given to me with no names on them. One was Bath and Body Works body cream, hand sanitizer and fragrance spray and the other one was a box of Fannie May. If your child gave me one of these gifts, please let me know.   I am writing thank you cards to the children.

Upcoming:

January 19th - No school - Martin Luther King Day
January 26th - Computers
January 27th - Church for for four year old children who come to school on this day
