Welcome back to school! I hope you all enjoyed the holidays! I had a wonderful Christmas vacation, and am looking forward to seeing each one of you and your children this week at WLPS.
The theme for the month of January will be "Winter". We will be talking about animals that live in the Arctic and Antarctic as well as those animals that hibernate. We will learn about Eskimos and talk about some of their customs. Making snowflakes, singing snow songs, dramatizing winter songs and fingerplays, painting snowmen, reading winter stories, and all the other fun things we do at WLPS will keep us very busy!
If you have snow pictures of your family, please send them to school to share with the class. Also if you have winter clothing-- gloves, scarves, hats, jackets, etc.-- that someone has outgrown, or not using, please share them with us for our "Winter Store" and dress up!
Progress reports will go home Friday, January 16. Parent/Teacher conferences will be in April. However, I am available to meet with you at any time to discuss the progress of your children. Please see me or Mrs. Garrett if you have questions or concerns!
We will be celebrating Shelby's 5th birthday this month! We will be baking our famous WLPS birthday muffins! Yum!
We welcome a new student to our class this month! Her name is Gracie and we are excited to meet her and get acquainted with her. Welcome Gracie!
Have a wonderful week.
