PDO I Newsletter

The children are beginning to settle in to the daily routine.  It takes a couple of months for the little ones to get accustomed to school, but eventually they adjust and are happy to be with us.   We will do our best to make sure they have a successful year in PDO I and look forward to watching them grow.  Please feel free to speak with one of the teachers’ if you have questions, comments or concerns.

The first couple of weeks our focus has been to help the children become acclimated to PDO I.  We encourage the children to participate in art, but do not force them if they do not feel up to it.  We started out with the Letter Aa and painted a red apple on a paper plate and made apple prints using real apples.  We read the stories, A was Once an Apple and Ten Apples on Top.  For letter Bb, we dot painted coffee filters and turned them into butterflies.  We read the story, Runaway Bunny.   For the letter Cc, we painted caterpillars using large marsh-mellows and read the book, The Hungry Caterpillar.

As the cold weather approaches, please send two sets of warm clothing and a warm jacket, mittens, and a hat.  Please label everything.

In October, our class will have a Halloween party as well as participate in a costume parade…More information to follow.   Our focus will be the color orange and we will decorate jack-o-lanterns and ghosts.

In August, Eleanor Cravy , Scarlett Zahner and Ben Gardner celebrated their 2nd birthdays!! and in September, Lilly Arkin, Grayson Knight, Maureen McCauley, Jonathan Meli and Franklin White celebrated their 2nd birthdays!   Happy 2nd birthdays!!!

Thank you for sharing your little ones with us!
