VALENTINE’S DAY

We will celebrate on Wednesday, February 13 and Thursday, February 14.

This is a special day for the children with a Valentine snack, songs and story, but it is not a real party.  Each class will also have a Valentine exchange.  If your child comes five days, there will be an exchange on both Wednesday and Thursday.  It is not required that your child bring valentines to exchange; that is up to you and your child.  We will have extra valentines so all can participate if they wish. 

Special Request: Please do not address the valentines with the classmates’ names.  Please sign your child’s name only on the valentines so that it will be possible for your child to distribute the valentines among the bags by himself/herself.  Children enjoy doing it themselves.  It can be difficult for them to match a name on a card with a name on a bag.  Signing the cards may be fun for some children, but a chore for others.  Please try to keep it fun.

REMINDER, please check your child’s locker to make sure they have a change of clothes in case of accidents.  Children feel more comfortable in their own clothes.  If children don’t have clothes in their lockers, we send them home in nursery school clothes that are marked NS.  Our clothing supplies are diminishing, if you have any nursery school clothing at home please launder them and return to school.  Also, we have several jackets and other items in our lost and found.  Please check to see if anything belongs to you.  Thank you
