May/June News-MWF


Dear Families,

Our themes for May and June will include “Ladybugs”, “Moms Are Special”, “Farm Animals”, “Flowers”, and “Summer Fun”!  We will be making small gifts to give our Moms on Mother’s Day.  The children are always so excited to present their Moms with these homemade gifts.  We will also be learning about farm animals and we will get the chance to enjoy the wonderful presentation by Barnyard Express here at school. The study of bugs will provide many wonderful opportunities for exploration and science activities.  Finally, we will conclude our school year with “Summer Fun”.  We will enjoy bubbles, water play, and chalk outside as well as some organized games to welcome summer.

We have completed our Zoo Phonics letters and our letter books.  The children have enjoyed making a letter each week to bring home and share with their families.  Be sure to practice letters and letter sounds with your children during the summer so that they are prepared for the fall.  During May and June we will also be working on recognizing last names and addresses.  

On Wednesday, May 9th, the Barnyard Express farm will visit Jackson Early Childhood Center. It is a wonderful assembly.  The children get the opportunity to touch and interact with the live animals.

Our last day is Friday, June 8thand we will be having “Moving On” celebrations in the gym.  This is an exciting time to watch your children receive their certificates and to take pictures.  Please join us at the times below:

  • Morning-11:00-11:45 a.m.
  • Afternoon-1:00-1:45 p.m.

As we quickly approach the end of the school year, we would like to thank you for sharing your wonderful children with us.  It has been such a pleasant year for us. We have truly enjoyed watching them grow!

Thanks for all of your cooperation and participation in the classroom!  Have a wonderful summer and enjoy your precious children!


Mrs. Stickler and Mrs. Messer
