Week of Nov. 27 - Dec. 1

Dear Prek Parents,

Welcome BACK! Hope everybody enjoyed this passed holiday. We are ready to work and get ready for December Activities.

MIDTERM REPORTS – Midterm reports were issued last Friday, November 17th. These should be signed by parents and returned to the teacher as soon as possible. If you would like a conference and one was not requested by the teacher, please call the school to set up an appointment.

In Prekindergarten we teach our students about sharing and helping. “Angelitos Del Dia” is a perfect way to help show our kids just how easy this can be and how we can make a difference in our community.
"Angelitos del Dia" helps out newborn babies born at Materno Infantil here in Tegucigalpa. They provide moms with newborn essentials (blankets, pajamas, socks, hats, wash cloths, towels, diapers, baby wipes, baby soap and baby shampoo). 
Your child took home a bag that you can use to put your donations in. 
A great way to get your child involved is to go through their baby clothes and have them choose items they would like to donate. Xtra and Emporio are also great places to shop for baby items. Please feel free to donate as many items as you wish.
Please send the bags back in by Wednesday, December 6th.         Thank you!!
This video teaches you about this great cause

Song Fest, our December celebration for the closure of this year 2017 and welcoming 2018, is on December 8th. We are already rehearsing and getting ready for this awesome show. We need your help with the dress code for the show. Kids should wear the following.

This week we will continue learning about our abc. We will be working on recognizing the letters with their sound, letter formation, vocabulary of the letter, remember always emphasizing on the short vowel sounds. We will be studying about the letter Ll. The vocabulary for this letter is: lion, log, lamp, ladder, ladybug, lock, lines, lollipop, lemon, leaf, lobster, legs.

Children assigned should take at least five (5) items that they have at home that begin with this letter. Items should be at school on Monday and we will send them back on Friday. For this week we have Ariel (Prek”A”) and Alejandro (Prek”B”).

***Note: On Friday, the assigned students, will have to share for 22 friends eatable things such as lollipops, lemonade, lemon pie, lychees, lettuce, lasagna, laffy taffy (gummy candies), life savers, lucky charms, etc. for children to taste. It would be awesome if instead of Monday you send it on Friday so that we close up
