Busy Week

Kindernews: Just a few Friendly Reminders

This week we have many exciting things happening in our Early Years Program.

Monday, Feb. 13th 
A community helper will be visiting each class -- a Vet Technician.  She will teach us how to be  safe when we see pets walking down the street or at the park.

Tuesday, Feb. 14th  - Happy Valentine's Day
Students are welcome to bring treats to share with the class or cards to give to friends.  Please remember that all food must be peanut-free.  If students are bringing cards, we ask that students sign each card with their own name, but there is no need to address each card.  This will make it easier for us to pass them out in a timely fashion.  Teachers will be wearing red, white and pink to celebrate this day, and students are invited to do so as well. 

Wednesday, Feb 15th- Numeracy Night and Kindergarten Open House
Prince Edward will be hosting a Numeracy Night on February 15th.  This is an opportunity for parents to visit the school to learn more about math activities that can be used at home to further promote students’ math skills.  Students and parents will visit primary classrooms. 
Come on out to learn more about MATH…… and what you can do to help your child succeed.  

The kindergarten classrooms will only be open for new students that are registering for September 2012.  All children born in the year 2008 are invited to Prince Edward on February 15th to learn more about our program and to register for the 2012 school year. 
Kindergarten registration will also take place on February 15th.

Friday, Feb 17th- 100's Day
We will celebrate the 100th day of school on the 17th of February.  Students are asked to bring in a collection of 100 items... marbles, elastics, cheerios.... whatever suits your family.

In addition, to all of these exciting learning opportunities this will be week 2 of the Growing Gardener's visiting our Early Years Program.  The Growing Gardeners are students from the University of Windsor teaching students about eating healthy, caring for plants and other exciting environmentally friendly activities .  There are with us for 6 weeks.  Last week they shared information with the students about the 4 food groups and planted a green bean seed.
