Pre-School

Dear Parents,
We would like to welcome you to the new school year! We enjoyed meeting you and your children at our
Open House. For those who were unable to come “Welcome”!
Our monthly newsletter is our way of letting you know what themes and skills we will be working on and
any special days that we have planned throughout the year. We have added several attachments to this
newsletter. One is a Scholastic Book order form. Please take a moment to check it out. Scholastic has some
great suggestions on books and computer software. Again this year, you will be able to log onto the
Scholastic Website and order your own books as well as pay online. We will also accept checks for orders,
please make them out to the Scholastic Book Club. This month book orders will be due on Thursday,
September 19th. We have also attached information about “Celebrating Birthdays” (we all love to celebrate
our day.) Also you will find information about our ”Mystery Reader” program.
Preschoolers love to “show off” their favorite things, so each month we will have “Show and Tell” days. On
these days, your child may bring in something special on the marked day they attend. If your child comes on
both “Show and Tell” days, they may choose ONE of those days to participate. Please be sure it fits in their
backpack and that you do not send anything that is valuable, breakable or not appropriate for school (i.e.
weapons). Our first “Show and Tell” days will be on Thursday, September 12th and Friday, September 13th.
During the month of September, we will be focusing on our social skills and getting to know each
other. Your child will be very busy making new friends, learning to share and getting used to their new school
routine. We will be going over school rules and how to keep safe inside and out! We will also enjoy colors
through our “Color Days” (noted on our calendar). On those days we encourage you to send your child to
school wearing the color of the day, anything will do such as bows, socks, shirts, etc. No need to buy a new
outfit.
During Preschool we will be going outside everyday to enjoy gross motor activities and fresh air,
please have your child wearing clothes and shoes they can comfortably run and play in! Also, a change of
clothes would be appreciated to keep in their backpacks in case of accidents or spills.
Please do not hesitate to call (887-3128), visit or email us at staff@playmateslc.com with any
questions or concerns. We are looking forward to a GREAT year!!
Ms. Cregg, Mrs. Bayek and Mrs. Dooley
