Kindergarten Round-ups are starting soon, please refer to the Ann Arbor Public School website for a complete schedule of the Ann Arbor Public Schools Kindergarten Round-up dates and times. Thurston's Kindergarten Round up is Thursday, February 22 from 6-7:30. We are also holding a Preschool Open house that night so be sure to pass the word on to any prospective Preschool parents interested in the 18-19 school year.
National African American Parent Involvement Day (NAAPID) is Monday, February 12. All parents are invited to come and spend some time with the preschool class for part or all of the day.
Preschool will be doing a Valentines exchange. The Valentine Exchange is optional, if you choose to exchange Valentines here are a couple of things to keep in mind. If your Valentines include a sweet treat please remember that we do have peanut/nut, milk, and egg allergies in the classroom, please check to make sure your treats do not contain these items, also when writing out your child's Valentines it is easier for delivery if they are not made out to a specific friend. Please leave the To blank and only have your child write their name in the From area.
We are coming very close to finishing our class igloo, but are still in need of gallon milk jugs, please keep sending them in!
Thank you to all of you who continue checking your grocery items and clipping those Box Top, each ones gives 10 cents to Thurston School.
