    Dear Families,

             Oh the fun we have had in Nursery this week! Letter Rr-we have made rainbows after reading Penguins Love Colors, and robots after reading Boy and Bot and Roller skating R’s. We have also started talking about Groundhog’s Day. We have learned all about how the groundhog makes a burrow in the fall and how the weather on Feb. 2 is determines whether early spring or six more weeks of winter. The children have adored this event. They ask for it to be repeated as they have for so many of our presentations! We have taught them a song where they get to pretend they are the groundhogs. Here are the words (sung to the tune of I’m a Little Teacup):

    I see a little groundhog furry and brown, he is popping up to look around. If he sees his shadow, down he goes. Six more weeks of winter-Oh No!

             We wanted to make sure all our families are aware of the Open House happening at St. Patrick’s on Sunday, Jan. 27th. 9:30 mass in Purick Hall (all of the teachers will be in attendance) and families are encouraged to come see the school. Take advantage of getting a feel for Pre-K at St. Pat’s and we hope you will bring your nursery child down to our room to visit. We have a slideshow ready to present to potential families and I believe it does a very good job of displaying what fun we have while learning. You (your child more) will love watching how happy and engaged they are in Nursery School.  Our theme this year is All Around The World and our class is Canada. Families considering St. Patrick’s will be visiting our classroom next week. The school has a week long schedule of events. 

             All week we will be collecting canned food.


             Monday:There is a book fair (forms went home) but not a whole lot for Nursery in it but there will be a display in gym of books and there will be more options provided. We are working on a wish list. Our class will “shop” on Monday Jan. 28that 9:10.

    Tuesday: Crazy Sock Day!

    Wednesday: Students wear colors of country they represent (we are Canada-red and white).

    Thursday: PAJAMA DAY! Students can wear their pajamas to school! 

             Friday, Feb. 1stis early dismissal as it is Teacher Appreciation Day. Arrival time is the same. Please send in normal snack but DISMISSAL TIME is at 10:30.  Parking will be more difficult then usual. PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN LOT! If bus pulls in behind you, you will not be allowed to leave until all of the busses leave at 11:15. 

             Thank you for sharing your children with us!
