Ms. Gunther's Pre-K 4's Page

Welcome to 1/2 Day and Full Day Pre-K 4 with Ms. Gunther! I'm so excited to be with you this year as you continue to learn and grow. In preschool we work hard, though our form of work might look like play to everyone else. While we play, we are working on our social/ emotional development, language, math, science, social studies, and religion! Along with playing, we also spend time creating with paints, crayons, markers, paper, and glue. Playing is hard work in preschool!

Extra/Change of Clothes..Opps

I was just asked about the extra clothes, and in all honesty we were so caught up with our last few days, we completely forgot to send home the extra/change of clothes. 
 
So.... on Monday, when you drop off your child, we will give you their clothes. Any clothes not passed back before hand will be given at the end of the celebration when your child collects their certificate. 
 
We apologize for this Opps moment. 
 
Thank you for your understanding. 
-Ms. Gunther

Superhero Day! Tues. May 31st

Dear Parents, 


In honor of the end of the school year and doing the best we could to reach our UPP raffle ticket goals, we will still be celebrating Superhero day! It will take place on Tuesday, May 31st. We will be honoring/ talking about the qualities and characteristics of a Superhero, including both fictional and non-fictional everyday heroes. 


The children may wear “Superhero” themed articles of clothing.


We will offer a variety of activities for the children to engage in, each focusing on a different “Superhero” ability. 


Thank you for helping us reach our goals!


Hoping to have a Super and Heroic Day!

Picnic Lunch with Faith Partners!

On Wednesday, June 1st we will be having a picnic lunch with our 5th grade Faith Partners as we meet one last time before our year ends. 
 
Lunch will take place at 11:35-12:15pm, and our 1/2 day friends are invited to stay with us and be picked up at noon. A note will be going home to confirm if your child can stay or not. Children should bring their lunches as usual, and 1/2 day can bring their lunches to school for the 1st time, if they are able to stay. 
 
We can't wait to see our Faith Partners and celebrate the end of the year with them!

Spring Clubs

Here is the flyer for the spring clubs if you wish to register your child. If your child is 1/2 day they are welcome to come back at 3:00 when we dismiss normally and we will take your child to club. 
 
There are 4 clubs being offered for PreK 4 to hopefully offer some variety.
 
I shared with you yesterday the two clubs that will take place in our classroom.
 
Please note the flyer doesn't have the clubs in weekday order. All club times are from 3:10-4:10 except for Tuesday which will take place at 2:10-3:10. The clubs run for 8 weeks with a pause for Easter Break.
 
This is a great opportunity for children to meet other children in the school, even in their own grade levels and we are so happy to be offering these to your children.
 
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out.
