A new year brings new things to learn for our students! If you want to download our two-page newsletter and calendar, it’s here: January 2016 newsletter & calendar (PDF).
Nut-free & latex-free school
Please remember we are a NUT-FREE and LATEX-FREE school. This includes nuts, tree nuts & balloons. This information is in our parent handbook. If you pack a nut-alternative spread in your child’s lunch please place a note in their lunchbox to inform us that it is an alternative to nut butter.
Monthly theme: Winter Wonderland
This month we will be learning how to write and recognize:
- Letters: U, C
- Numbers: 5, 15
- Shapes: star, crescent
- Color: yellow
Students will learn about snowflakes, what clothes to wear in cold weather, winter sports, artic animals, and the science of freezing and melting of liquids.
In January we will learn about important people like the Wise Men, John the Baptist, Anna and Simeon, who recognized the special baby Jesus. Our Bible verseis Isaiah 9:6, “For unto us a child is born, a son is given to us.”
January 26 is Rodeo Day!
This will be a fun day where children will be singing western songs and pretending to roast marshmallows. Remember to send your child to school in their best western attire. Cowboy up!
