ABCs, 123s…AND A BIT O’ IRISH FUN!

We’re into Week #2 (Mar. 11 – Mar. 15) of ABCs and 123s at Kidsplace! Last week the kids had great fun making Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Trees, Alphabet Soup with cereal (although more Alpha Bits made it into tummies than onto the craft!) and Alphabet Monsters!

Read through the post for some important announcements and updated fundraising information, and then click on some of the links at the end for some additional fun just in time for St. Patrick’s Day!

Lovin’ Our Littles! {Kidsplace Featured Friday…er…Sunday}

{Many apologies for the delay on this update…one of those weeks!}

Love it or hate it (and we hope you love it!) Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! We’re gearing up for some fun activities at Kidsplace, as our “Feelings and Friendship” theme continues this week (February 11-15)!

Have you remembered to bring an empty facial tissue box to school? These are being turned into cute holders for your child’s Valentine cards. If your child wishes to give out Valentine cards, please have him/her print his/her name in the “from” line and leave the “to” line blank. This makes passing out the cards fun and easy for everyone!

The M/W/F class will hold its Valentine’s Day party on February 13, while the T/TH classes will hold their parties on February 14.

And because we love having your kids in our classes, here are some fun Valentine-themed links to check out this week! Shaving Cream Cards, White Chocolate Valentine Popcorn, Brown Paper Valentines, Valentine Snack Mix, a list of love-themed kids’ books and some ideas for homemade cards. Just click on the photos!

REMINDERS

Show and Tell takes place next week. Please refer to the calendar (click HERE for the PDF)or ask your teacher for your child’s day.

There will be no school next Monday, February 18.

If you have a student in the Tuesday/Thursday A.M. class, please remember to bring a roll of paper towels to school. (And if you have already done so, thank you!) The afternoon class will be asked to bring paper towels after the March break.

Please be sure to use only the Kidsplace doors when entering and exiting the school to drop off or pick up  your child (even if you have other children attending Calvin). This is for reasons of safety for the other children at Calvin Christian School and to ensure we are not disrupting their classes. Thanks for your attention to this matter!

Now how cute are these? These little Footprint Penguins were made during last week’s “Polar Animals” theme. I’m continually amazed at how creative our teachers are…and how much fun our kids get to have! Thanks Lori, Sherry and Adeline!

This next week (January 28 – February 1) is shaping up to be another fun one, featuring “Weather” as the theme. Maybe the kids will figure out how to encourage Spring to come a little earlier this year!

Glenlea Catalogue 2013-1But just in case they don’t learn that magic formula, we can at least start thinking “Spring” with our annual Glenlea Greenhouses fundraiser! The paper catalogues will be out in mid-February, but if you want a headstart on your plant shopping (and selling!), check out these two PDFs:
