Hello from the Yellow Aprons!  Love is in the air!  February is the month of Valentines, cupids, hearts and roses.  At this time of the year we can show our loved ones how special they are and how much they mean to us.

In January, the Yellow Aprons were very busy learning about the winter season. Our topics included polar bears, teddy bears, penguins and snowflakes. We had a wonderful time on our Teddy Bear Pancake Pajama Day. We brought our teddy bears to Preschool, talked about hibernation and ate lots of yummy pancakes!

We enjoyed our chapel time with Robin Kerber! Theme: “I Am Unique!” The children loved making a creative paper likeness of themselves in class. Adorable!

During the month of February, our Art Appreciation corner will display “Pinkie” by artist Sir Thomas Lawrence.  We will have wonderful shades of pink paint at the easels in honor of this painting.  

Our sweetheart pancake breakfast will be on Thursday, February 13th and Friday, February 14th.   Would your child like to bring and exchange Valentine cards with his/her classmates?  Please send 15 (MWF or TTH) Valentine Cards with your child to school on these days. Please sign each card with your child’s name to show who the card is from, but do not address the envelopes so your child can pass them out themselves.  This works out very nicely and avoids confusion during class time. Please remember our no candy policy. 

In February we will learn about community helpers.  The Fire Department will visit Preschool later in the month. What important jobs do firefighters, doctors, dentists, postal workers, and police officers do?  If any parents are willing to share their profession with our class, please contact me and we will arrange a day for your visit.

In honor of our Presidents, we will be talking about being a leader and why they are important. Remember there is no school on Monday, February 10th in honor of Lincoln’s Birthday and Monday, February 17th due to President’s Day.

Our colors this month will be pink, red and purple. The shape will be a heart. Our number will be number 6.

Love,
Mrs. Allen & Mrs. Ventura
