Happy Valentine’s Day

Parent Notice

February 17 – SBISD no school / After school Welcome at SBPA

Important Information

Get in the habit of checking the office board in the foyer. We post many reminders and upcoming events for your child and the school.

Group

Please remember to check your child’s cubby daily. Teachers send important info home. Balance sheets, Illness notices etc.

With the constant changing of the weather it is very important to send your children dressed appropriately. Please remember coats and shoes when needed. We will still go outside if it is cold.

Please notify us if your child has been diagnosed with a contagious illness. We will send a letter to the class and this will help us control outbreaks. Please read the Parent Handbook for our sick child policy.

Extra clothes are a must! If your child has a potty accident and does not have a change of clothes you will have to leave work and bring clothes immediately. The Academy does not provide extra clothes.

“Wee” Facts, Tips and Advice

I asked the Pre-k about Valentine’s Day, and this is how they responded to my questions:

1) What is Valentine’s day all about?
Matthew – “You make broken hearts.”
Ryan – “You make valentine cards and give them to your friends if you like them.”

2) Why do we celebrate Valentine’s day?
Thomas – “Because there is valentines bags.”
Izzy – “Because we love people.”

3) What does love mean?
Luke – “It means that you break hearts.”
Ryan – “It means that you love somebody or you could say that you could be a good friend like it say’s on the rule chart in the classroom.”

At this point I had to redirect the class back to the task. They all had a lot to say about the classroom rules… who and who doesn’t follow them. Too funny!

Logan – “You know what? Me and my mommy are in love!”
McKenzie – “It means that you make hearts.”
Colton – “It means that you love them always.”
Alli – “I don’t know. Yes I love my mommy!”

As I finished my discussion Kira came to me and said very proud with a big smile, “I know one more – Love!” To that I smiled and replied back, “Your right! It is all about LOVE.” It’s funny how children view our world. If you ever want to laugh a little, ask your child a crazy question. You never know what they will say.

Best and warmest regards,
