I hope everyone had a relaxing and enjoyable Spring Break. This week will be the last week in our Dinosaurs unit study, and our Fourth Regie's Rainbow Adventure. Regie's Rainbow Adventure focuses on the importance of eating fruits and vegetables, this week we will be visiting the Island of Green. If you have any questions regarding this program please contact me. Our focus letter this week is the letter W.
Preschool would like to thank all our guest readers, the preschoolers really enjoyed the variety of book being read and had great conversations about them. Even though the month of March is now behind us if you didn't get the chance to come in and share a favorite children's book with the class, we would still love to have you come and share with us. Please speak with Mrs. Geidner if you are interested.
Please make sure to check your child's rest time bag for a complete change of season appropriate clothes and for any toys from home that may have caught a ride to preschool. Recently, more toys from home have been making their way into the preschool room. Friends are using these toys at rest time, an appropriate rest time buddy is a soft stuffed friend. Thank you for your assistance with this matter.

Safe Tips From Haven the Heron: Week of 4/2/18
This week’s message from Haven focuses on Cyber Safety. Beginning at the age when kids start to interact on the Internet - playing games, watching YouTube Videos, socializing in virtual worlds, getting homework help, and searching Google - families need to be actively involved in their kid’s online lives.
CommonSense.org offers this quick video 5 Internet Safety Tips for Kids to help get the conversation started. Check out this link to ABCYa’s Cyber Five safety tips to help when talking to very young computer users.
Internet Safety Basics
Help your kids understand that they should:
- Never share their names, schools, ages, phone, numbers, or addresses
- Never send pictures to strangers
- Keep passwords private (except to parents)
- Never open email from strangers - it may contain viruses
- Immediately tell an adult if something mean or creepy happens
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.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact Mrs. Geidner and we will set up a time to meet. Thank you for your continued support.
