PDO III April Newsletter


HAPPY SPRING!!! Where oh where did this school year go?? It seems like only yesterday that we first gathered and made new friends and were thrilled to see our buddies from the previous year. Who can begin to wrap their heads around the fact that May is just around the corner?

We had so much fun during the month of March. All the kiddos loved picking out which zoo animal they wanted to design for our PDO III Zoo bulletin board! You have to talk about leprechauns and shiny gold around St. Patrick’s Day! The “All Things That Are Green” week is always exciting because you never know where that sneaky, tiny leprechaun just might turn up! They also had fun decorating their own Shamrocks. Living in Kansas, you never know what the weather will be from one day to the next. Our unit on weather helps us learn all about safety, spring storms, what makes a rainbow, and the ever popular tornado in a bottle!! We know that March came in like a lion, but did it go out like a lamb? The children made adorable lion and lamb faces to better help us understand our ever changing weather patterns.

Happy March birthday’s to our friends: Madelyn Keene, Gabe Lanter, Madeline Maret, Ava Murray, and Wilson Wheat!

April should bring us warmer temperatures that are here to stay…we hope! This is such a meaningful time, as we explore the telling of the Easter Story to the children. Other highlights include making a colorful flower garden, bunny faces, celebrating Earth Day, a unit on counting and sorting, a clever alphabet scavenger hunt, and learning all about what do I want to be when I grow up? We look forward to celebrating April birthday’s with our friends Dyson Hilt, and Marley Sides!

As always, thank you for the privilege of working with your precious children. If you ever have questions, comments, or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

In partnership,
Ms. Lori, Ms. Janet, & Ms. Rebecca
