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,
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,
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
a happy month!
Curmi and Mrs. Ehrenfeld
