Dear Families, January 2017
Happy New Year! We hope that everyone had a restful and fun
time enjoying the holiday break with friends and family! Thanks to the volunteers for our holiday
party! I hope you enjoyed our holiday
songs at school, too.
January will be a fun month
where we enjoy the joys of winter. We
know that the cold and snow are coming so we will have fun with it! Children love the snow and we will go outside
when the temperature permits (the school guideline is 20 degrees or above, including
wind-chill). Please remember to always
be prepared with proper clothing for the weather (labeled hats, mittens, jackets,
snow pants and boots). Thanks for
making sure that all items fit into a backpack or tote bag. Also, if your child wears boots to school,
please put their tennis shoes on when they get to school. Boots are too warm and awkward to wear in the
classroom, gym and gross motor room.
There is no school on Monday,
January 16th .
This month we will continue
to focus on the virtue “Manners”. Be
sure to check out the suggested conversation starters in the hallway. We will also continue our Zoophonics letters
of the week. By the end of the month we will be halfway through the alphabet!
This month Jackson Early Childhood
Center is celebrating a favorite event – “VIP Night”. On the evening of Wednesday, January 25th
your child and one special adult (the VIP) will attend class together from
– 7:30 p.m. There will not be a morning
session that day. We look forward to
this special night! We’ll also have fun
with dinosaurs that week!
Please send a clean, empty,
half- gallon milk-type carton with your child by Monday, January 30th
for a special activity in February. Looking
ahead, we will be having our PJ Day on Wednesday, February 1st. Wear your PJ’s to school that day!
Thanks for sharing your
wonderful children with us. It is
amazing how fast they are growing in so many ways. It is such a joy to watch them blossom before
