February Newsletter Tuesday/Thursday

Dear Families,                                                                             2017


Happy February!  We sure enjoyed all of our winter activities last month!  We hope the weather cooperates this month so we are able to go outside (when the wind-chill is above 20 degrees).  Thanks for sending labeled outdoor clothing (snow pants, boots, hats and mittens) with your child each day.  Also, please change into tennis shoes at school.


We will start this month with some Valentine’s Day themed activities, including everyone making a special box to hold valentines.  If you haven’t already, please bring a clean, empty, half- gallon milk-type carton for this with your child by Tuesday, January 31st. 


We will have a “Pajama Day” on Thursday February 2nd.  On this day we will all wear our PJ’s to school.  This is a fun day where we spend time in our classroom and then have fun in the other three year old classrooms.  We will also enjoy a special story in each room, too!  We will not be going outside.


Our Valentine’s party is on Tuesday, February 14th.   The children may bring in valentines to the party for their friends at school (there are 20 children in our class).  Please sign their name on the card but do not put a name on the envelope (it makes it easier for them to distribute).  Please make sure that the valentines do not include a food item (these will have to be returned if sent in).  Put the valentines in a bag with their name on it.  If you would like to help in the classroom that day look for the volunteer sign up in the hall and fill out an I-Chat form.  We will be singing some special songs for your entertainment just before dismissal.


Jackson Early Childhood Center is closed February 18-20 as this is mid-winter break for Livonia Public Schools.  This does not affect our class but I wanted you to be aware that the building will be closed on Monday, February 20th.


The children will enjoy a PTA sponsored program by “The Music Lady” on Tuesday, February 21st.  We look forward to this event!  Thank you PTA!


Our school-wide virtue this month is “Kindness”.  Check out the conversation questions and the  bulletin board in the main hall.


Conferences will be held February 27-March 2.  Watch for the sign up sheets in the hall.  Conferences are held in the classroom during our normal class time so there will be no classes during this time.  We will be having additional conference times at night on Tuesday,

February 28th.


As always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.  I am always available after class if you need an extended time to discuss any concerns.  You can also send me an email at ptcurmi@gmail.com.


Have a happy month!

Mrs. Curmi and Mrs. Ehrenfeld
