Announcements:  February Tuition is Due Monday or Tuesday.  Don’t forget to have your child where their preschool t-shirt on Wednesday or Thursday.  If you buy a t-shirt this month I will be picking them up on Tuesday afternoon I will put their new t-shirt over the shirt they wear to school. 

Homework:  We are talking about people of different abilities and challenges this week.  It would be great if your family could have a discussion about people you know or have seen in the community that have a disability.  Emphasize that people with differing abilities can do many of the things everyone else can do, and we shouldn’t focus on their disability.  They may already know someone in their neighborhood or family who has a challenge; encourage them to be friendly and kind to them.  Hopefully by talking about this our children will not be afraid to be friends and play with other children who have a disability.
