Buzzin’ Bees News

March 2019

 

It seems like the year is moving by so quickly! It’s hard to believe we are already preparing for spring! March will be a very busy and fun month for the Buzzin’ Bees. In Reading Enrichment, we will work on “The City Mouse and the Country Mouse”, focusing on the letters, Oo, Pp, & Qq, the color brown, the shape of a rectangle, and long/short. This month we will also begin the story “The Tug of War”, which will focus on the letters Rr, Ss, & Tt, the color orange, and completing patterns.

We will also learn about St. Patrick, Leprechauns, and spring/windy weather.

We will attend Mass with our Buddies and visit the food pantry on Friday, March 1, please bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the food pantry.

Wednesday, March 6 is Ash Wednesday. Our class will be receiving ashes on this day. We will talk to the children about this and I ask that you do as well so they understand it is not something to be scared of.

There is No school on Monday, March 11 for a Diocesan Inservice Day. There is No Preschool on Friday, March 15 in order for the teachers to attend the VAECE Conference.

On March 22, we invite all DADS to join us for  Donuts with Dad from 8:30-9:30am.  They will enjoy a peek into our day, yummy treats, and some special surprises. If Dad is not available to attend, we welcome grandpas or uncles, too! If Dad or another family member is not able to attend, please bring your child at 10am. Check your child’s back pack for a special invitation 😊 We hope to see you all there!

Please come out to support our PTO on March 23 for the Rummage Sale. There are sure to be lots of great bargains and treasures! Please see the e-update from the school office for information on how to donate or rent a space to sell your items.

On Friday, March 29 Bishop Burbidge will be visiting our school! We will be attending Mass with our school community on this special day. Because of the Bishop’s visit this day will now be an 11:30 dismissal, which is a change from our original school calendar.

Happy Birthday to Nicholas on March 3!

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Blessings,

Mrs. Ellen, Mrs. Baker, and Mrs. Frida
