Welcome to room 5 and Glanklers preschool program. I hope
you all had a good summer break.
The first few weeks of school we will be getting used to
school, learning the schedule and making new friends. The Paraeducators that work in the room are Doreen and Susan. We
have been working together for a number of years. We all welcome you to
Here are a few things I would like to advise you of:
class activities are organized through UNITS related to the interest of
preschoolers. You will be receiving information monthly when each unit
begins and any activities or field trips included in that unit. The
information will list some of the activities that we will be doing so you
have an idea of what is going on during their school day.
send your child to school in clothing that can get dirty and/or even
stained. We sometimes use paint and other medium, which might not launder
easily. We do use paint shirts but accidents sometimes happen. Learning
for preschoolers is done primarily through exploration and experience,
which sometimes means getting dirty.
send a set of extra clothing (shirt, pants, underwear if toilet trained
and socks) since accidents do happen. We will keep the spare clothes in
their backpack and will use them when there is an accident. Please send
replacements the following day if the extra clothes were used.
- It is
very helpful if your child comes to school with an average sized backpack.
We put their artwork, jacket (if the weather warmed up), snack bags, and
any written notes from the school office or me in the backpack. This helps
keep lost items to a minimum.
send a snack each day with your child in a sack or lunch box. That way the
children can practice carrying their own snacks to the snack table. We
will have occasional cooking activities that will be served during the
snack time any extra snack items and extra cooking items will be sent home
with your child. That way you know how much of their snack they ate and
they can show you their cooking projects.
your child is going to be absent, please contact the school office before
class time (651-1190). Please do not send your child to school if
they have a fever, vomiting, diarrhea, sneezing/runny nose/eyes watering,
and/or if they have a yellow or green runny nose. The school
district requires that the children are symptom free without the aid of
medicine for 24 hours before they come back to school.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you and welcome
back to school.
