May 2019 Newsletter

Mrs. Coates and Mrs. Hull

 

First and foremost, we want to thank you for being such wonderful parents. Your dedication is reflected in the behavior and sweetness of your children, they truly are a kindhearted group! Thank you to all that donated their time to the Art Masterpiece program and for Laura Marr coordinating it. To all the parents that attended our field trips, our parties, and donated items to help make our events a success.....Thank You! You have been such an easy and receptive group to work with.

 

The theme for the month of May is fun! We have completed our alphabet program and our units and now plan to revisit some of the projects that we did not have time for during our busy year. Our journal entries will continue this month with an Alphabet Buffet theme. We will be dividing up the letters and days and assigning a letter to each child. On your assigned day we would like you to send in a food that begins with your letter—just enough food so that each child can have a taste. We will then enter the foods in our journals as pictures and words. More information on this activity will follow.

 

On Thursday, May 16th, we will be having a Parents Day Tea. This will give you an opportunity to sit in on our circle time and give the children an opportunity to show off the many things they have learned this year. At this time, we will also present you with their Alphabet Books and miscellaneous items. We will finish up with juice boxes and cake – it should only take about an hour for those of you planning your work day, roughly 9:15 - 10:00. The invitations have already gone home in the backpacks.

 

Last, but not least, the end of the year party is being held on Wednesday, May 22nd.

Our party committee has been contacted and will begin plans soon. You will be notified if any items are needed. We always appreciate your help.

 

Mrs. Hull and I want you to know that your children, and this class as a whole, will always hold a dear place in our hearts. It is tough to say goodbye when many of us started out as strangers and end the year as friends.

 

Have a safe, happy, wonderful summer!

 

 

Warmest regards,

 

 

Barbara Coates & Brandi Hull
