Teddy Bear Press ---
March 2020 Volume 14.03

March is about Spring, Kites, Safety, and St. Patrick's Day. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the wonderful parents who brought things for our Valentines Day parties and wonderful gifts for our staff.

Important reminders...
Please label all of your child's belongings, this includes lunch boxes, share toys, clothing and sheets and blankets. Please help us keep track or your child's belongings. There are so many jackets and sweatshirts in the yellow room on the hooks. Please claim your child's belongings because there are no names on them and we do not know what is whose. We will put them in a basket for our parents to look through and clothes that are not claimed by the 16th of every other month will be donated to local charities or churches.

Send a clean sheet and blanket to school every Monday if your child naps at school. Blanket washing day is every Friday.

A note from our teachers...
Share days are on Mondays & Thursdays please remember not to send valuable toys to school. Our staff cannot be responsible for broken or lost toys. Some of our children come to school with toys everyday. We would appreciate it very much if you can send a toy to share only on Share days. Books are welcome any day of the week to share. Also please pack a napkin in your child's lunch box everyday. Thank you for your cooperation.

We would like to help our children grow up with healthy habits and good eating habits and with your help, we can achieve that. We cannot stress enough how important breakfast is. When your child has a good healthy breakfast he/she is ready to start the day with proper fuel in the morning, this will also help with transitions in the morning and hopefully help your morning go smoother with a less cranky child. March is National Nutrition month, so we will be talking about healthy foods in each classroom.

Classroom curriculum for Yellow Room and Red Room will be Our names, Blue Room will be Opposites, & Green Room the alphabet. If you have any books you would like to send to share in class on any of our classroom themes or whole school themes feel free to.

* Also please be courteous and pull all the way forward in front of the school at drop off time and pick up time. Many parents have been complaining that some parents are parking right in front of the door, thus causing parents to have to park around the corner, or that parents are visiting and talking, or just sitting in their car, and/or taking too long to move their cars. We appreciate your attention to this matter as our families want to be albe to make it home and enjoy famiy time at home.
