Dear Families, March 2018
We hope that all of our snow days are behind us and the snow is gone for good, but this is New England…. Lots of things coming up this month and next, the staff will keep you posted on information in emails and handouts coming home in your child’s backpack.
Nursery, Pre-K, and KEEP classes:
We still have openings in our T/TH Nursery, PEEP and KEEP classes. We have a waiting list for our MWF Nursery and Pre-K. If you know of anyone that is interested, have them call the office for a tour.
Make-Up Snow Days:
We will be making up a Tuesday snow day on Tuesday, March 13, which includes all the morning classes and Peep. Originally this was a teacher workshop day. The rest of our 5 snow days will be made up at the end of the year. Our last day of school will be Monday, June 4.
Save the date for Saturday, May 5th for our Spring Fling. The Spring Fling is a day to come with your family and friends for a health and safety event at the school. There will be lots of raffles and silent auction items also. Details will be provided next month.
In House Field Trip:
We will be having the New England Aquarium Traveling Tidepool come to the school on April 17 and 18. All the morning classes will participate in this hands on presentation.
March Activities to do with your child:
Molding mixture:Mix together flour and baby oil for a mixture that will hold together for your child to build castles with.
Clean mud: grate up Ivory soap, have your child rip up toilet paper, and then add water to the desired consistency.
Green Sensory Fun: mix shaving cream, baking soda, and green food coloring together. Have your child mold into balls and other shapes. To have more fun add vinegar to the mix and watch for some bubble fun.

Great Educational Website: http://www.janbrett.com/activities_pages.htm This is my favorite children’s author and I love her website. Besides the games there are many activity sheets that you can print out for your child.
Teachers love to have play dough on hand for the children to create and enjoy in the classroom. ay dough also works to bolster finger muscles, which helps writing skills. In order to prevent spreading germs, we need to replenish our playdough supply regularly. Any donations would be greatly appreciated!
Recipe: 2 cups flour, 1 cup salt, 4 tsp. cream of tartar, 2 Tabl oil, 2 cups boiling water, food coloring, and extract for a nice smell. Mix all together and let sit for 3-5 minutes. Knead and put into a plastic bag.
