Letter of the Week: Xx
An Encouraging Word From Scripture…..Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Psalm 100:1-2 (NIV)
Letter X and Spring!
This week we will be working with a theme in honor of our featured letter, Xx. Our activities will focus on X and related things. We will do some X activities and artwork. We will be talking about X-rays and why doctors sometimes order them. As we will learn this week, X is fun letter to write! In addition, we will do some fun springtime activities and projects.
This will be an X-ceptionally fun and educational week!
Monday and Tuesday: Pretzel Stick Xs and Fruit Juice
Wednesday and Thursday: Fruit and Milk
Friday: Popcorn and Fruit Juice
SCHOLASTIC BOOK ORDER
The April books were sent home last week. If you ordered a book which you did not receive, please let Ms. Kris know. Thank you!
A NOTE ABOUT TUITION
May tuition will be due NEXT WEEK on Wednesday, May 1. Please pay on or before that date. Your child’s account must be current for him/her to finish the preschool year and participate in all of the fun end-of-the year activities. If you have questions about this please refer to the parent handbook or check with Ms. Kris.
Please remember that if tuition is paid after the 5th of the month, there is a $10 late fee added. The last couple months, we have noticed that checks have been placed in the payment box several days after the 5th and the late fee has not been added. This is not fair to those who consistently pay on time or do add the late fee if their payment is late. Please add the late fee even if your payment is only a day or two late. Thanks!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!
We want to thank everyone who donated items for and/or helped with our Easter parties last week. God gave us great weather for our Easter egg hunts and we give him thanks for that! The kiddos had a great time!
We would like to give a special thank you to those parents/grandparents who provided extra eggs so that the kids could hunt for more! We also are grateful to those families who provided the party items which were not yet signed for. We appreciate all of you!
STORY TIME AT PAOLA FREE LIBRARY
This week, on Monday, April 22 and Thursday, April 25, the SonShine Preschoolers will be walking to the Paola Free Library for Springtime Story Time. The Monday classes will be departing SonShine at 9:15 am and 1:15 pm. The Thursday, class will leave at 9:00 am. As always, parents/grandparents are welcome to walk with us to the library. We love having you!!!
STAR READER READING
We know that many of the kiddos have been reading lots of books to earn that pizza party next week on Wednesday, May 1 or Thursday, May 2. Lots of our kiddos have already returned their reading logs to preschool. If your child has not yet returned the reading log, please keep in mind that next Tuesday, April 30 is the last day to do so. Your child must turn in that reading log to participate in the Pizza Party. If you have misplaced your reading log, you may simply record the book titles, authors and who read with your child on a piece of paper. Please let us know if you have questions!
MAGICIAN AND PARENTS’ NIGHT OUT!
Next Friday evening, May 3, SonShine will be hosting Brad Lynn, Children’s Magician who will be entertaining the kids with his special brand of magic! This year, SonShine is partnering with First Lutheran Church to schedule this event on the evening of Parents’ Night Out. Parents’ Night Out begins at 6:00 pm and if you would like your kiddo to participate in Parents’ Night Out, you may drop them by the church at that time. He/She MUST be picked up by 9:00. Ms. Kris will be helping with Parents’ Night Out on the 3rd, so there will be a familiar face!
The Magic Show will begin at 6:30. If your child will be attending only the Magic Show and not Parents’ Night Out, he/she MUST be accompanied by an adult. We would love to have your whole family join us for the Magic Show! After the show, popsicles will be served on the playground. Please sign the sheet in the hallway to indicate your plans for that evening so that enough popsicles can be purchased and we can let the leaders of Parents’ Night Out know how many kids to plan on. Thanks!
