Good Evening Families,

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! If you are new to the Woods, Cindy and I want to extend a warm welcome and if you are a returning family, we welcome you home. The children had a fantastic first week! They are adjusting to the routine and making new friends.

This week, we heard stories, sang songs and heard rhymes for our theme, “All About Me.” We worked on the cutest art project to give out to you on Parent Night. Parent Night is this Thursday, August 30 at 6:30 in the classroom. This is an important meeting for parents only and not children.

We jumped right into our Specials…….PE, Music, Art and Spanish. Tomorrow we will go to Technology. The class will hear stories and interact with a white board by touching it to select the right answer in a game.. Normally, we would go on the first Monday of the month, but since Labor Day is the first Monday, we will go tomorrow.

Kudos to every student for wearing their athletic shoes to school! They will play a lot safer on the playground and in PE. Speaking of playground, you need to check out our BRAND NEW PLAYSCAPE! WOW! It is a smaller version of the one for older students. The children had a ball playing on it!

Thank you so much for the generous donations of wipes, books and balls. We go through quite a bit of wipes and we will rotate the ball and books throughout the year. YOU’RE THE BEST!!

For next week’s theme, our focus will be on “Family and Friends.” We will begin the Investigator Club. What’s that you ask? You’ll just have to attend the Parent Meeting to find out!

Have a fabulous week ahead,
Wanda Roussarie and Cindy Sloan
