Miss Kelly will come in to cover lunch time and continue to be our aftercare Teacher Assistant, her hours will now be from 12:00-6:00. I will be in before care on Monday morning to help with this transition.If you have any question or concerns please contact me.

The preschool room is a No Nuts room, please be aware of the ingredients of the items that you send with your child for lunch.
Please make sure you are signing your child in and out when you drop them off and pick them up.
Please make sure when dressing your child for preschool that the items you choose are ones that can get dirty/paint on them etc. We try to cover the preschoolers up with smocks and such but we sometime we get dirty. Part of preschool is encourage independence and this sometimes lead to accidents.

A note from Mrs. Wyse (Preschools Art Teacher)
Art at Thurston
Welcome back to school! Students work with a variety of materials including markers, crayons, paint and clay. The curriculum includes the role of artists in society, recognizing art as a form of communication, and identifying elements of art like line, shape, color, texture and space. Many projects help students to use their imagination. Our goal is for students to display a feeling of pride in their own work and to listen to the opinions of others. Most artwork is saved during the year for displays and shows and will come home in June. We are always in need of paper tubes, band-aids, tissue (for cold and allergy season), crayola markers, ticonderoga pencils (easiest to sharpen), Q-tips, glue sticks, little boxes, and paper grocery bags with handles. To see what we are currently making, please go to http://www.thurstonart.weebly.com.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for your cooperation and support, we are looking forward to a great year!
