Our Valentine’s Day Party is Friday, February 14. We will take some fun Valentine pictures, feel free to dress them in fun clothes for the holiday. A list of names home the week before the party. Make sure everyone gets something from your child. It can be a simple card or it can be a candy or the like. I will not put limits on it. But I do want every child to give something to each of their friends so everyone knows how much their friends care about them.
We will celebrate Dr. Seuss’ Birthday on Monday, March 2. Feel free to dress as your favorite character or a simple shirt with that on it. We will enjoy a full day of Dr. Seuss stories and games. We will take some fun pictures on this day, too!

2020 Parent's Night Out
Christmas Shopping Parents Day-Night Out
On Saturday, December 5 we will be offering a special Parents DAY Out so you can go Christmas shopping without the kids. You can go home and wrap the gifts and put them under the tree before picking the kids up so they will never see the bags from the stores that might give it away or accidentally see through the bags as you carry them into the house. Drop off time is 10 a.m. and pick up time is BEFORE MIDNIGHT. That will give you enough time to grab a bite to eat, shop, go home and wrap the gifts before you pick them up. They can bring their night clothes to change into so they will be ready for bed when you get home. We will have a special craft time, Christmas movies, and some fun holiday snacks. Cost is $50/per child. Please, Book Early! Let us know what time you will be dropping off and picking up. 10 a.m. to midnight is just what is available. You do NOT have to drop off that early or pick up that late unless you want to. $10/deposit due at booking. Deposit is non-refundable but is transferable.
New Years Eve Parent's Night Out
On Thursday, December 31 we will be offering a special New Years Even PNO. You can choose to have your child stay the half night or spend the entire night and pick up by 8:30 a.m. the next morning. It will include dinner, craft, party noise makers to celebrate the new year at midnight "9 p.m." and snack. Over-nighters will also be served breakfast. Please send a change of clothes if you want them dressed after breakfast instead of staying in their pj's. 6 p.m to 1 a.m. $30/per child OR 6 p.m. to 8:30 a.m. $50/per child, $10/per child deposit due at booking. Deposit is non-refundable but is transferable.
Scholastic Book Club
We order from Scholastic Book Clubs with a direct link to our school and get free books for our preschool as well as earn points to get free resources for our school room. We get extra points each month for ordering and get free books each month.
I order the $1.00 books each month and send home one with each family. This is a way to help build your library at home and for me to share my love of reading with the kids in my class.
I will add books to our library with our extra points. Possibly some books on CD for our listening center. I will order them according to what age groups we have need for more resources. I am so excited to see what new books we can add to our collection! Your help is appreciated greatly.Here is the information to order online on our account. It is safe to say online. Saves us both time and no bother with checks and deposits. Make sure you click the button "send order to teacher" or it will NOT register.

Usborne Books & More
Ms. Terri became an Independent Consultant with Usborne Books & More to further the love of books in children, families and schools. As a preschool teacher, she has used books from UBAM to enrich our curriculum and bring the love of books into the children's lives.
We found Usborne Books & More many years ago at a childcare convention around 2006. We slowly started getting a few here and there to grow my children's library. That was back before there was such a thing as FB parties. Last year a friend had an online party and she had such a good time and learned so much more about Usborne. It has grown so much since we first heard of them. She decided to host her own party and found even more books that she wanted. She earned a crazy amount of free and half price books just for doing a bit of asking and a whole lot of commenting at the party, which is just like talking to friends about books and kids, so super easy! When we got the books home and held them in our hands and saw them with our own eyes, we all fell in LOVE with them. The quality is amazing.
If you would like to support our school while filling YOUR home library with great books, you can visit her Usborne Books & More Website.
