This week we worked really hard on focusing our attention and getting others attention. We use our “attentoscopes” to focus on one thing. You can read more about how to use those in the family letter from second steps below. We learned how to get someones attention by tapping them on the shoulder and saying their name. You might notice that your student starts to do this at home as well. We encourage you to praise them for practicing these skills.
We have updated the socializations tab under calendar above. This will give you important dates of fun activities that we will do throughout the year. These socializations allow you to meet other families in our classrooms and gain great information we might have to help your student grow and learn. We always have a blast together, we would love to see you all there. More specific information will be sent out about each of these events when they get closer.
We would love to take some time to tell you how wonderful and involved our Pyrtle PTO is on our school and our classroom. This week you should have received a magnet about when they hold their meetings and how you can get involved. You also received a blue sheet for one of their fundraisers. The PTO tries to only do 2 fundraisers a year. Although preschool will not be able to participate in the Walk-A-Thon, feel free to send in donations. The PTO generously gives every classroom money each year out of these funds to buy things for our classrooms to enrich the environment. If you send money and are worried that your student will forget to give it to a teacher you can email or call us and we will be sure to check their backpack.
Thank you so much for all that you do to help your student grow and learn.
**Reminder Picture day is Friday this coming week.
