Today: Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

Mrs. Kenny was out today.  

I only got back 7 nap mat responses from full day kids.   I am missing 6.  Please reply on paper,, put your name, and send back in folder.  If I don't get back paper, I will donate mat to school.  Thanks.   

For your information, our class has 8 boys and 9 girls.   

Remember, now that the weather is getting warmer, please send extra water for your child to drink after playground.  

Just an FYI:  Natalia's mom found a wonderful nut-free treat.  The are the whole-foods mini-cupcakes called "School Safe."  That is also an option for future class birthday's with a child that has a nut allergy in class. The kids really loved these, they gobbled them up today! The closest Whole Foods to us is that one in Manhasset on Northern Blvd by Americana. 

Remember, we are a peanut/Tree nut -free class. Rosella's allergy is a Peanut AND Tree nut allergy so no peanut butter, almond butter, and no nutella. She is also allergic to Legumes, beans etc. The label should say "Nothing processed in facility with tree nuts."  You have all been doing great so far.  Thank you for your concern and cooperation.  Stop and shop in Bay Terrace has a whole tree nut- free section. They carry tree-nut free sweets from Lofthouse and Zuckers Bakers.  Rosella's family is very appreciative for all of your kind concern for Rosella!  


  Please remember to send me an absent note upon return when your child is absent.  Thanks. 

Please make sure and LABEL EVERYTHiNG.  Tupperwares, icepacks, cups, lunchboxes, jackets, etc.  

Please take your child to the bathroom in the morning before you leave.

Monday, June 19th-  Our Class Nursery Graduation!  
9am to 9:30am. in the Pastoral Center.  Children should arrive to the classroom, dressed in their Sunday best, at 8:30 am, no earlier please.   Parents will then go over to the Pastoral Center to get their seats and we will arrive with the children at 9am for the ceremony.  It lasts about a half hour.  We then have to leave the area since the next nursery class needs to set up for their 10am ceremony.  If you wish for your child to take photos with the teacher, hopefully we can do nice pictures outside. The children go home with you after the ceremony, there is no more school.  So, our last full regular day of class will be Friday, June 16th.  






If anyone has any used dress up clothes your child does not use anymore, such as police officer outfit or hat, please send them in. 

Let us give a big thank you to Luke's Mom Mrs. Mitchell and Cameron's Mom Mrs. Katigbak for the extraordinary amount of supplies they have donated to our class this year!
