October 31st-November 4th news

Dear Parents,

Weekly Theme

This week we will focus on Nocturnal animals, mainly bats and owls.  We will discuss what nocturnal means, where these animals live, what they eat and the different characteristics of each.  Also, we will discuss what makes a bat a mammal and an owl a bird.

This week we will focus on the letter “Nn” for  Nocturnal.  We will work on the “Nn” letter sound and think of words that begin with that sound.  We will also read the letter “Nn” book and play what’s missing with the letter “Nn” sound tub.

Upcoming Dates:
November 11th, Veterans Day, ELC closed
November 24th, Thanksgiving Day, ELC closed
November 25th, Thanksgiving holiday, ELC closed

As we enter into winter and “cold season”, I’d like to remind you of St. Al’s sick policy. In order to protect the group as a whole, we ask that parents help by keeping sick children at home until they are recovered. Our common cold policy is assessed on an individual basis. The policy factors in the developmental level of the child and their ability to limit the spread of germs. Children in this age group spread germs more easily with hand to face contact, mouthing of toys, uncontrolled nasal discharge, and uncovered sneezing and coughing. If your child is noticeably displaying symptoms of a cold, has a change in behavior from their usual selves (such as lethargy and lying down), and we assess that they are too sick to be at school, we will call you to come pick them up. Please make every effort to pick your child up within the hour. Our priority is to keep your child safe and healthy, and we appreciate all of your help! If you have any questions about WAC Rules or the St. Al’s Sick Policy, please contact me!

Please let us know if you have any questions, concerns.
