September 2013

Welcome back students and parents! We have new class names this year. The classes will now be called Meteors, Shooting Stars and Comets.

OUR THEMES THIS MONTH

COLOR SHAPE THEMES
Yellow Circle All about me/5 senses/Family/Body/Parents/Self-concept/Emotions

Talking about the themes at home is a great way to further conversational skills and solidify classroom learning.

Join the PTA! Envelopes went home in the first day packet. TUSD honors schools that have strong PTA enrollment. The class with the highest percentage of PTA members wins a pizza party!

Donations welcome anytime! These funds go to all the “extras” like providing snow for SNOW DAY. These events are very stimulating for the kids, which helps develop their motor skills, social skills and language. This year we would like to take them on a bus field trip, buy additional toys for the playground and classrooms, and expand our access to technology.

Volunteers needed for the BOOK FAIR, October 11-18. Call Elaine: 310-972-6500 x2552.
