February was filled with lots of love! The children had so much fun learning and celebrating Valentine’s day as well as Catholic School’s Week to list a few. Thank you to all the parents who brought in items needed to make our events special. It’s now time to say good-bye to winter and welcome spring! March will be another exciting month.
Parents, it is imperative that you register your soon to be preschooler or transitional kindergartner for the following 2017-18 school year as soon as possible. After March 3rd you will no longer have priority registration and your spot will not be saved. Preschool and TK spots are filling up fast and we currently have a waiting list for families who really want to get in so please make sure you see Scott to register to secure your spot.
Celebrating St. Patrick's Day
During this week the color we will mainly be focusing on is green to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. If any parent would like to bring any healthy green snacks during St. Patrick’s week (3/13th -3/17th) or Fruit Loops cereal it will be greatly appreciated. Please have your child wear his/her favorite green outfit on Thursday, March 17th.
Spring Concert (Save the Date!)
Our annual preschool spring concert is coming up! Preschool children will be performing April 13TH, Thursday at 9:30 a.m. in our preschool yard. I hope you can all make it! The children have been practicing and working hard with Ms. L. and their teachers. Please dress your child in their favorite Spring/Easter attire. After the concert we will celebrate Easter by having an Easter egg hunt. All are welcome to attend and join in on the fun!
Broken sheet covers
As we prepare your child’s nap beds we have been noticing many of the straps in the sheets are broken. Please help us by sewing the broken sheet straps.
Parent Fundraising and Service Hours
Just a friendly reminder, we have 3 ½ more months until school ends and as a member of the Saint Sebastian community, all families are to complete 40 hours of service and raise $300 in fundraising. If not completed, there will be a fee of $10 per hour and pay the remaining fundraising not completed. To check your balance, please see the front office. If you need help in completing your service hours and fundraising please come see me. Our festival is April 29th and April 30th and I am sure we will need all the help we can get to help plan, set-up/clean, and run this huge annual event. All families are required to work a minimum of 6 hours for this fundraiser so please sign up. I believe the jobs listed are given based on first come first serve. Raffle tickets will also be going out soon. Each family will be selling $100 worth of tickets. These are two ways to help you complete your service commitment to the school.
Donations needed (fundraising opportunity)
- 2 Canvas board (approx. 16" x 20" or “20 x 24”)
- 2 Canvas board (any size)
- Gazillion Bubble Hurricane Machine
Thank you all so much for your support and dedication to our beautiful Saint Sebastian Preschool.
Bunny and Lion Blurb:
Dear Bunny and Lion Parents,
February was filled with so much love and excitement! The children really enjoyed sharing their special valentines’ treats! We had such a great week participating in Catholic Schools week where we got to wear our pj’s to school, celebrate our diversity, meet firefighters and even explore the inside of a police car!. We also had an amazing time getting to meet Yasiel Puig a current Dodger Player! Go Dodgers!
For the month of March we will continue the celebrations with Dr. Seuss's birthday, healthy habits and St. Patrick's Day! We will focus on recognizing numbers 1-20 in and out of order as well as working with letters R, S, T, and U.
Thank you for all your support!
