PDO II April Newsletter

As we turn the calendar to April, the end of the school year seems to be rapidly approaching. It’s hard to believe that spring break has already come and gone. We hope you enjoyed the time away from school with your families. We’re happy to be back and looking forward to spending time on the playground with more spring-like weather.

The month of March flew by quickly with spring break, but we managed to squeeze in the letters, “Q”, “R” and “S”. The children enjoyed creating “letter Q quilts” and “rockets” for letter “R” week. Before spring break, we made festive shamrock head bands to wear for St. Patty’s Day. We decorated our hall and classroom with colorful kites. Then for letter “S” week we finger painted snails.
In April we will talk about the true meaning of Easter and the new life that Jesus gave us as he died and rose from the grave. This month we’ll cover the letters “U”, “V”, “W”, and “X” and finish out the alphabet in May. In circle time we’ll continue to read books about spring and learn some new songs.

With the weather warming up, we will definitely get outside more often. Please remember to send jackets for those cool mornings. We greatly appreciate you clearly marking your child’s name in them. It’s difficult for us to remember all the new jackets with the number of children we have throughout the week, and sometimes the children are not able to pick out their own belongings. Thanks!!

In March we celebrated birthdays with Ivy Cravy, Tagg Ensminger, Owen Hill and Graham Larsen. We will celebrate with Sloane Bailey, Olivia Denno, Halen Major, Johnny O’Brien, Eli Marston, Drew Slocum and Colin Zahner as they turn 3 in April. Happy birthday to all of you!!
Please join us in welcoming several new siblings to our classmates. Landon Bolyard has a new sister, Ella. Ellis Briley has a new brother, Hughes. And Brett Huska has a new brother, Sam. Congratulations to all of you!

Hope you all have a blessed and joyous Easter!

Ms. Nancy F., Ms. Denece, Ms. Maureen and Ms. Nancy D.
