February KinderNews

February, 4, 2013

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We had a very busy January.  The students have been taking care of the animals in the Vet Centre creating and sharing puppet shows with our new theatre and have been building structures using a variety of materials.   Thank you for all the donations to our Vet Centre and the various art supplies. 

This month we will be furthering their inquiries, as well as focusing on personal hygiene and exploring money.   The students have requested to change the Vet Centre into a Supermarket.  We are looking for donations of: empty food boxes, cash registers, children grocery carts, money tray, grocery flyers, reusable shopping bags, and old phone books.

Please remember that with the cold weather upon us, children must be dressed warm because we will continue to have outdoor learning twice a day, unless the wind shield is too low.    Windsor weather changes very quickly, please send your child with a warm coat, snow pants, a hat, mittens, and boots every day.  Also, they must have shoes to wear indoors.

Many students have been sick with the flu and colds.  If your child is sick with the flu or flu like symptoms, please do not send them to school.  Sick children don’t have energy to learn, and they infect other students and staff.
