Dear Parents,

The children have been very busy in the last few weeks. They have been learning about Martin Luther King and his legacy. They created a special poem with hand prints that was sent home with ideas on how we can make the world a better place. We have been learning about Monet and his contribution to impressionist art. We will be sending home their version of a Monet artwork. We have many new topics and activities coming up in February, such as Black history month, Groundhog’s day, Presidents’ Day and Valentine’s Day. We will be starting a favorite book list, you are welcome to include your children’s favorite book choices. I will send a form home to fill out if you would like to participate. Just a reminder we need wipes for children. Please dress your child in festive Valentine’s Day clothing as we will be taking a group photo to be posted on the website.

Thank you.

Ms. Lorraine, Ms. Lilian and Ms. Patti
