St. Peter Preschool

Mrs. Tiffani and Ms. Elizabeth

3's Classroom

Week of December 3rd-7th, 2018

Last week:

We learned about the letter J. J is for Jesus and Jesus is the reason for the season.

This week:

The children will learn about the letter B. B is for Bethlehem.

Just a few reminders:

Christmas Book Exchange: The children will have a book exchange during class on Tuesday the 18th. We are asking that all books be turned in by Friday the 14th to insure we have all the books. The book needs to be wrapped, gender neutral, and costing no more than $5. Label the book To: A friend From: Your child's name. Even if your child does not attend class on Tuesday please bring a book. We will place the other gifts under our tree so they can receive one on their day.

Room Parent: The 3 year old room is looking for someone to be our room parent. We would ask that you attend the monthly PTL meetings, be involved with class parties, bring lunch for the teachers on their birthday, help with teacher appreciation week, and be available to help the teachers with events. If you are interested you can see Mrs. Shanna for more information or email the PTL president Bari Marr @ stpeterlodiptl@gmail.com

Preschool Chapel: December 19th Preschool will present the lesson in Chapel for the whole school. Parents are welcome to join us in the chapel to see their children perform a Christmas Story. We do ask that the parents sit in the back rows and we will allow for pictures after the service. Please bring students to the chapel to sign in on this day. Make sure you are on time because we need time to dress the students in costume.

Snack/Sharing: Please check the Sharing calendar to see when your child has share day. On that day your child can bring 1 item to show the class. They also may bring snack for the whole class (24 Children). The children love sharing and this is a way to help the school cut down on food costs. This program is optional and if you choose not to send anything we will provide a snack. The Sharing/Snack calendar will be posted in class as well as at the bottom of this newsletter.

Reminder for lunch: In their lunch please provide your child with a drink, utensils/plate if needed, and a napkin. The children are often times without these items and we have to supply them. We try to help if we have the item but it is best that the items be in the lunch already. When they move to other grades they will have to do without because the items will not be supplied so it it better to start now. Thank you.

Clothing: The children need to wear shorts or leggings under dresses please. We also ask that the children not wear overalls and rompers. We have noticed the children having a hard time getting these items off and on to use the restroom.

Wednesday Chapel: Please arrive by 8:20 am. If your family would like to give to the Chapel offering, please bring the money on Chapel day and the children will place it in the offering plate during Chapel.

Please take all bedding home each week to wash.
