Our first full week of preschool was great and very busy! We are learning how to do school, and the preschool rules. We even made our own Preschool Constitution. Next week we are continuing to learn about preschool and our schedule "When things happen at preschool".
Next week we will also be planting our own preschool vegetable garden with Mr. Frank. Mr. Frank is a volunteer who helps with the gardens around Thurston school, Mr. Frank knows all about planting. If you would like to help the preschool plant their garden we will be doing this on Wednesday at 10:30. Please let Mrs. Geidner know if you are interested.
Preschool will be having fall conferences On Oct. 26, Nov. 6 and Nov. 9. I will be sending out a sign up genius for you to pick your conference time, please be on the look out for this sign up. Conferences are scheduled in 30 minute time slots.
Please look at your packaged goods for Box Top for Education, they are on a variety of products. Thurston school participates in this program and receives 10 cents for every box top turned in. This money is used to buy things for Thurston school and that includes Preschool.
Please remember to send your child's rest time bag back to school with them on Monday. We will be sending the rest time items home for washing every other week. This is also a good time to check and make sure your child has a weather appropriate full change of clothes.
The preschool program provides a light snack of fruit and milk and sometimes dry cereal in the morning and crackers and water in the afternoon. We have a hungry group at preschool, please make sure your child is eating a breakfast before coming to school as our morning snack is not meant to be breakfast. We do have some friends who receive the morning breakfast from Thurston School, if you are interested in your child receiving a breakfast once at preschool please contact food services or speak with Mrs. Geidner. Also, NO snacks are provided in before care or aftercare, please consider sending your child an extra snack for these times of the day.
Your child will be bringing home an information packet on the Fun Run. Preschool does participate in the Fun Run, all the proceeds earned through this event go to PTO to help pay for things like field trips and room supplies. This includes preschool, Thurston's PTO has been very generous to the preschool room. This year the Fun Run is on Friday, October 13. Preschool would love to have all the preschooler participate. If your child is not a Friday friend, we would love for them to come and join us in the Fun Run on that day. As the day gets closer preschool will be given a time slot for running, all preschoolers are invited to come and run, I will pass that time on when I receive it. Please consider donating towards your child's Fun Run. It is a very exciting event for the students.
