Brown Bears August 2017 Newsletter

Wow August already! Our time with your children has flown by so quickly. We are proud and sad to watch our Brown Bear Family leave us and move onto Black Bears. August 15 is your child’s start date as a Black Bear. A meet and greet will take place Thursday, August 10, at 6 o’clock in their new classroom to become acquainted with their new teachers and classroom procedures. We will move your child’s cubby over for you on Monday, August 14, after school. We cannot thank you enough for all your generosity and support during this school year. It has been such a joy to have watched and helped your children grow. We will be looking forward to continued hugs and updates in the hallways. It has been a great school year! Your children are amazing!

The class has continued to work hard academically and we will continue to review right up to the transition. Shapes, color mixing, letter and number recognition along with information on wild zoo animals are part of the first few weeks. We are hoping to include one last movie day to enjoy together, Madagascar should fit nicely into the zoo animal theme.

Welcome to our new families! We will also meet on Thursday, August 10, at 6 PM to introduce ourselves and familiarize you with our classroom and answer any questions or concerns.

Our first month together will include themes: Back to School, “All About Me”, and Apples. STEM will be auto repair shop. Please provide a family photo that your child can keep displayed in their cubby all year. We will give them a chance to talk about themselves during “All About Me” week and have the comfort of your faces during the school year. We will no longer have splash days.

We are looking forward to getting to know you and your child. Please don’t ever hesitate with any questions or concerns. We can be reached easily at

Always remember they grow fast, so hug them, love them, laugh a lot, and read, read, read!
