How can you and your child be involved in the care of our class pets? We would LOVE for you and your child to be involved with feeding our little friends. If you would like to bring in one of the below “safe” food items, please do so any day of the week! You can also sign up here on the wiki! The more the merrier!
Here are acceptable guinea pig treats:
This is a wonderful opportunity for families to help make our classroom more beautiful. Each Monday or Tuesday one family has the opportunity to bring in 10-12 cut flowers. The child of this family will then help arrange and place the flowers throughout the classroom.
Birthdays are so special for toddlers and preschoolers. In an effort to not confuse these young children whose concept of birthdays is so fresh and naïve, we propose instead of celebrating specific birthdays, to offer a special day during the year where parents will be encouraged to sign up on the Wiki to come in and read your child’s favorite book to the class. If your child is at school on the anniversary of his/her birth, we will celebrate by singing happy birthday during snack or lunch. Please arrive at 12:35pm on your scheduled day. Thank you.
Each year many parents ask to come into the classroom to spend a day with their child and his/her peers. The parent volunteer should arrive 10 minutes before the start of class so that teachers can inform them about the plan for the day. Please plan to stay for the full class when volunteering in this role. Please note that we do not need to have a volunteer but offer this as an opportunity for interested families. Grandparents are welcome. Unfortunately, younger siblings can not join in volunteer opportunities.
