Koala Classroom News

June, 2019, Newsletter

It is so hard to believe that this is the end of the Koala’s school year!   I can honestly say that this has been one of the best years that I have had in the eighteen years of being at Jackson!! J  The children, parents and staff have made this an incredibly awesome year!  It is always so gratifying to watch the children develop and grow physically, cognitively and emotionally throughout the year!  They are truly an inspiration and the reason why we love coming to work every day!

For the summer, I will be in the front office doing administrative duties and the children will be age appropriately placed with Ms. Andrea.  We have been combining with the Tigers in the morning and afternoon so the kids are familiar with Ms. Andrea.

With the temperatures getting warmer, please feel free to bring in sunscreen for your child and we will be happy to apply it before going outside.

The last couple of weeks of this year’s program are full of end-of-the-year fun activities.  We will be learning about various kinds of bugs the first week of June as well as having Bike Days on Tuesday, June 4th and Wednesday, June 5thPlease bring your child’s bike (or Big Wheel) as well as their helmet to school on these days.  (Feel free to leave their bike overnight, if you wish.)

The week of June 10th, our final week, the theme is, “Goodbye Koalas”.  I will incorporate the kid’s favorite activities into this week as well as having Field Days on Tuesday, June 11th and Wednesday, June 12th.  The childcare classrooms will be setting up different activities around the playground and having the classes rotate, taking turns at all of the different stations.

A Pizza Fun Lunch is scheduled for Wednesday, June 12th.  The menu will be:  Pizza, cucumbers, watermelon and ice cream.  If you would like your child to participate, $2.00 will be due by Monday, June 10th.

For those attending our summer program, the Meet and Greet will be Thursday, June 13, at 6:15 p.m.

Thank you for all of your support this year and for helping to make this the best year ever!

Ms. Gail, Ms. Joanne, Ms. Laura, Ms. Cari and Ms. Katie
