This week in PreK!

We have a busy week this week! 

Monday we have our STEM field day. The students can wear athletic clothes like the ones they wore for the Fun Run.

Tuesday is a normal school day. The students can wear a hat as part of our red ribbon week. “Put a cap on drugs!”

Wednesday is going to be very busy. We have a field trip to Bottom View Farm from 8:30-1:00 then our Fun Run assembly after the field trip. It is also “Shade out drugs” so the students may wear sun glasses that I have for them or their own. They can also wear any pants with a SJV shirt.

Thursday is a normal day. We will have a door decorating contest to go with our Red Ribbon Week. Our classroom theme is Frozen’s  Olaf “We like warm hugs and healthy hearts.”

Friday is our fall party as well as “Wear Red Day”     Students may come out of uniform this day as long as they wear something red.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
