 February / March Newsletter

Mrs. Mulderrig and Mrs. McManus

We hope everyone enjoyed a peaceful winter break. It's beginning to look a lot like springtime and we have much to share with you and your family. We are also hoping… no more snow! Mr. Groundhog offered conflicting reports; hopefully we will enjoy our outdoor playground soon.

February was our red and pink month. We are sure that you enjoyed those special heartfelt messages of love and our fantastic Valentine's Day performance. We have some very talented little singers and dancers.

March is a LUCKY  green month with St. Patrick’s Day around the corner. The class will be searching for a pot of gold, and creating green projects. Don’t forget to put our school annual

St. Patrick’s Day Carnival Day Celebration —March 16th


This is a family event and children must be accompanied by an adult. We DO NOT visit the Carnival as a class.

I must reiterate how important routines are in the development of our young  children.  We all recognize the importance of routines at home and at school. Repetition is the core of learning. Calendar time is the same everyday. It includes counting tally marks, recognizing days, months, alphabet letters, and our morning message. By now, every family should have a morning message posted somewhere in their home. Please allow your children to proudly demonstrate their skills by reading and identifying letters and sight words. Enjoy watching and listening to your emerging reader. This routine will continue throughout the remainder of the school year.


Our Principal, Mr. Colomban has introduced new technology to all early childhood classrooms, a Smart T.V.  An innovative learning tool, completely interactive.  This "hands on" learning experience helps the children to prepare for the future through technology.  We can't wait for guests to come visit our classroom and observe the students practicing many of the readiness skills needed in preparation for Pre-K and Kindergarten.

We continue practicing our workshop tasks:
Holding a pencil
Doing complex puzzles
Recognizing their written name
Counting Bears (mastering one to one correlation)
Making Patterns
Tracing Shapes
Recognizing continuing patterns

Cutting with Scissors (fine motor skills)

New Workshop Tasks:
Writing our Names

Smart T.V. activities

Mixing colors


Every Monday is gym day, please remember to wear sneakers.
