Bee Kind

Hi Families,

Hope everyone had a nice long weekend and Happy New Year to all those families who celebrate Rosh Hashanah. It was a real fun first two days of school and I hope you are excited to get back to our three day week. The goal of the next three days of school is to try and help everyone to acclimate to their new school enviornment. The classes will continue to spend a great deal of time playing and interacting with our new teachers and classmates.

We will also be creating our first class project of the year based on our theme of ‘BEE KIND’. The classes will be having discussions about being a good friend and what we can do to be kind. Tomorrow, we will also be starting snack days for some students. Your child’s snack day should be marked on your monthly class calendar that you received on the first day of school. Children who did not receive a snack day in September will be the first children to have one in October. Parent’s responsibiility for snack and other snack ideas are also detailed in the first day of school handouts.

This year at Busy Bee, when it is your snack day it will also be your child’s show and tell day. Please send in your child with one special toy, picture, item, book, or memento. During circle time your child will get the opportunity to share their special show and tell with the class.

Busy Bee Gym Classes will also begin next week on Monday, Thursday and Friday. The gym program run by Miss Theresa has become a child and parent favorite at Busy Bee. The gym program adds a half hour to your child’s day and gives them another opportunity for social, cognitive and physical growth. If you are interested in signing your child up for a gym class please return the form that was distributed on the first day of school.

Also starting next week, the classes will begin preparing for our first trip of the school year… Apple Picking at Davies Farm in New City on Tuesday September 25. All children attend school the day of the trip at their regular scheduled times (9:00 or 12:30) with a grown-up. The classes will do a little circle time presentation for the families before we carpool down Route 304 to Davies Farm. Their each child will be given a bag to fill with apples. Beginning tomorrow their will be a letter sent home with information about the Apple Picking and Pumpkin Picking Trip (Thursday October 25) to Seocr Farms.

Lastly, I would personally like to thank and welcome everyone to the Busy Bee Family. It is going to be a very fun and memorable year of school.
