March 2017 Newsletter

Dear Parents and Caregivers;
WOW – Here comes MARCH!  My only hope is that March comes in like a lamb and goes out like a lamb.  What a long winter we’ve had – I’m sure everyone is ready for some warmer weather.  We’ve got another busy month ahead – time is just flying by too fast!

Good Bye:
We say a sad goodbye to Teacher Tanya.  Tanya has taken on a position with SSFC in the ECE program and we wish her the very best!  She will be sorely missed, but the future ECE students are very fortunate to have her!  Tanya will be in to supply the odd time and she’ll always be a part of the Kinderschool Family!

Welcome:
Carla Ross – Carla is a Sir Sandford Fleming College ECE student and will be with us Monday and Tuesday’s for the afternoon program for the next 7 weeks.

Documentation:
As part of our learning and growth, our programming and planning is based around the How Does Learning Happen? Curriculum from the Ministry of Education.  More information to follow via a letter for parents/caregivers, keep an eye on your child’s art file!  Once the letters have gone out and if you have any questions regarding this, please see Jen.

Theme:
We finish our Colour Theme the first week of March, then Teacher’s Choice for the week before and after March Break, and then hard to believe, but we “SPRING” into SPRING and EASTER!  Follow the calendar for upcoming events and important dates.

Literacy Pals Reading Program:
The Literacy Pals reading program will start up after March Break and a letter will be going home for parents/caregivers detailing this venture!  It’s always a well loved one by all of our families!

March Break:
The school is CLOSED for March Break – March 13th to 16th Have a wonderful week J
I will be away the week of March 20th to 23rd.  I will have very limited email access and not responding to emails or texts. If there are any concerns while I am away, please see Lauren, Lisa or Brittany – with thanks, Jen.

Class and Individual Photo’s:
Barry Challice – of Challice Photo’s will be at the preschool on; Tuesday March 28th (AM/PM) and Wednesday March 29th (AM ONLY) for class photos and individual portraits.  Barry usually has the proofs back to the school within a couple weeks and orders are in for Mother’s Day weekend.  If you child does not attend on a day that Barry is scheduled to come, and you would like individual photo’s, please see one of the St. B ladies for further instruction.

Coming in April:
* Parent Visits
* Early Registration for 2016/2017 School year (last two weeks of April)

Have a WONDERFUL March!!

Jen, Lauren, Lisa, Brittany
