Hello Preschool Parents and Families!
What a beautiful day in Skagway and another week done in Preschool. Here are some reminders and updates.

Picture Day
Thursday, September 10th
Make sure your Preschooler is looking their best! I have sent home ordering envelopes. If you didn't receive one, let me know and I will make sure one gets to you. Preschool is scheduled for 10:30am. I've attached a flyer about School Pictures, just in case you haven't seen it.

Open House and Ice Cream Social
Thursday, September 10th, 5:30 - 7:30 pm
As you tour the classroom, your preschooler can show you their hard work and beautiful art creations. Plus there's ice cream! Be on the lookout for a personal invitation. Please remember that all school rules apply during evening events at the school.
Pre-K through 2nd: 5:30-6:00 Open House, ice cream following
3rd-6th: 6:00-6:30 Open House, ice cream following

7th-12th: 6:30-7:00 Open House, ice cream following

What have we been up to?
  • We started working in our Handwriting Without Tears Get Set for School Workbooks, focusing on correct crayon grip and fine motor skills.
  • We learned how to draw Mat Man.
  • We learned how to play safely on the playground.
  • We strengthened our hand muscles by playing with Play-Dough.
  • We made beautiful sun-catchers to hang in the window.
  • We learned the song "Where Is Thumbkin?"
  • We continued to work on our Fall Mural.
  • We strung beads and macaroni to make necklaces and bracelets.
Busy, busy, busy!

Have a great Labor Day weekend!

Smiles and laughter,
Ms. Michaela and Ms. Kortney
