LAND OF MAKE BELIEVE


The Land of Make Believe
We are so excited for our trip to The Land of Make Believe on May 15th !
Here are some things to keep in mind for that day:

*Chaperones:  Please be reminded that a parent or an adult caregiver must accompany each of our preschoolers and remain with them throughout the day. 

*Transportation:  You must provide your own transportation; it will NOT be provided by school.  

*Lunch:   You make pack your own lunches, snacks and drinks or purchase them at the park.

*Dress:   Please have your child wear comfortable shoes as they will be doing a lot of walking.  If you have a St Therese T-Shirt please wear it for the trip.  Also, you may want to apply sunscreen ahead of time and bring some with you to re-apply as we are hoping for plenty of sunshine!!

*Time and Tickets:  Lets plan on meeting near the front entrance at 9:15.  We will assemble to the left of the ticket booth.  We will distribute your tickets (wristbands) at that time.  The park opens at 9:30 and closes at 2:00.  You may stay for as long as you’d like.

*Rain:  The forecast is looking very promising for our trip date!!

Please feel free to reach out to me should you have any further questions.

We are looking forward to a fun filled day!

Who knew learning the letter Ww could be so much fun?!?  The World, whales, watermelon and watercolors were just a few highlights of our week!

We focused on Earth Day with learning different ways everyone can help keep our world and all of God's creatures safe and healthy.  We also did some planting and learned about different types of seeds.  Be sure to ask your little gardener if they remember what every seed needs to grow...

Opposites were lots of fun to discover as well, especially comparing the HEAVY watermelon to the light pompom.  (There was so much giggling in our classroom for that lesson!!)

We have been very busy rehearsing for our special graduation performance and can't wait to head over to the big school and perform for you on stage!!!
