Hello families!

This site will serve as an important tool in linking home and school for your child. Each Friday, I will give you insight to what we are learning about in the coming week at Preschool. I also post pictures of your child in their learning environment. This way, you can have a focused discussion with your child about what they are doing at school each week!

What an awesome couple of days we’ve had! This week we learned all about our common area expectations and Preschool routines! Your child learned how to sit on the carpet, walk in a line, and how to take good care of our classroom materials. We also learned how to sit at the table, pass food and pour our own milk at meals. We opened the Block Center, the Library, and the Art and Writing Center. Our focus question this week was: “What names do we need to know at school?” We leaned the rhyme “Humpty Dumpty” and read books about family.

Next week we will open the Discovery Center, Table Toy Center, and Dramatic Play Center. We will be introducing bubbles, chalk and balls into our outdoor time. We will also be making a “Friendship Fruit Salad” and discussing what it means to be a “Rotten Banana” in our classroom. Next week our focus question is: “What should we do if we get sad or scared at school?” We will be discussing strong emotions, and how to handle those emotions. We will be learning the rhyme “Little Miss Muffet and reading Wemberly Worried.”

Important Upcoming Dates:

  • Monday, August 21No school due to eclipse.
  • Tuesday, August 29No school due to PLC.
  • Monday, September 4No school due to Labor Day.

A friendly reminder that you may access Preschool breakfast and lunch meal menus here.

Additional photos from the week can be found at the “Photo Gallery” tab of this site.

Have a great weekend!

Allison

Welcome

Hello and welcome to a new school year!

My name is Allison and I will be your child’s primary teacher. Your child will also get to know two para educators and additional preschool team members who work in the classroom as resource support staff this year. We are so excited to get to know you and your child!

This website will serve as an essential resource packed full of important information regarding your child’s education. Please be sure to check in weekly.

As a part of the LPS Preschool Program, I will be conducting five “Home Visits” throughout the year. This is a time I get to visit you and your child in your home environment. We will be working together to create and work toward goals specific to the needs of your child. I will be contacting you before our first day of school to schedule our very first home visit.

We would love for you to come meet the rest of our team and tour the classroom during the Kloefkorn Open House! Come see us on Thursday, August 10th from 6-7 pm. We are in Room 101.

Preschool will begin on Thursday, August 17th. Please send your child to school with a backpack, closed toe play shoe (no sandals or flip flops) and an extra change of clothes (underwear, pants and shirt) tucked away inside their backpack. No additional supplies are needed.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at amattern@lps.org or at 464-1148.

Looking forward to another great school year!

Allison
