Dear MSLC Preschool Families,
The warm weather is finally here!
To be prepared for play under the sun, here are some tips for protecting your child’s delicate skin:

  • Put on sunscreen before they come to school
  • Bring a light, long-sleeved shirt to wear outside
  • Bring a hat

This month, we will be celebrating Mother’s Day on May 6th, 2016 at 5:15 PM. Your child/children and their teacher have been busy preparing wonderful things for you on this day. Look forward to seeing the fruits of their labor on this special day!

Next month will be Father’s Day. Your child/children will celebrate on Thursday, June 16th or Friday, June 17th. Stay tuned!

Best regards,
MSLC Office

Classroom News and Notes

New families: Please bring family photos the first week your child attends school. We will continue to be making family collages and hang them in the classroom to help children ease into the program. These photos will not be returned, so make sure they are copies or duplicates which we can keep.

Sharing day is Monday of each week. Children are invited to bring in sharing objects that begin with the letter sound of the week; for example, a stuffed animal pig for the letter “p”. Books with the letter of the week in the theme or title are also welcome. Please make sure your child’s name is on the item so it doesn’t get mixed up or lost.

New student: We welcomed our new friend, Audrey Huang, to our classroom!

April Review

In April, we learned about what we can throw away and what we can recycle. We enjoyed learning about what we can recycle by sorting items such as plastic, metal, paper, etc.

We had a great time doing our Easter Egg Hunt. We learned new tasks: sorting eggs by color, pouring rice and beans, and the magnetic fish game. These tasks helped us build our concentration, fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
