Brrrrr!  What a crazy week it has been weather wise.  It looks like more wintery stuff is on tap for tomorrow. I’m so sorry we were closed this past Monday and Tuesday due to the weather but we do follow what Allen ISD does in regards to bad weather days.  A reminder though we do differ in the instance that the school district has a delayed start we are still closed for the day.  I appreciate your patience with this policy and change in our schedule. 

Yesterday and today the children were treated by a special guest from Dr Gough’s office (Pediatric Dentistry – Allen) Bucky the Beaver, he was here to remind the children about taking good care of their teeth.  Check your child’s bag as they each got a new toothbrush!  We also had the fastest fire drill in history today with the cold temps outside we were in and out lickity split!!

March is next week and I can’t even believe it!  Time is just flying by……… reminders for next week:

  • Spring School Pictures (individual & class) are next Wednesday, March 4th & Thursday, March 5th – please refer to the attachment for more details.  This information also went home in your child’s folder either yesterday or today. 
    • **Wednesday picture day** for M/W Rainbow, Orange and Green as well as the Three Year Old classes (Yellow, Silver, and Blue)
    • **Thursday picture day** for T/TH Rainbow, Orange and Green as well as the Pre K classes (Purple, Sky Blue and Red)
  • Read Every Day information went home in your child’s folder also this week.  This program we do in conjunction with our spring service project and to celebrate the birthday of Dr Seuss which is on Monday and kicks off the Read Across America campaign.  Have fun and read every day with your child and treat them to the sticker on the sheet daily to keep track.  The week of March 23rd we will have a book drive and a lemonade stand after school on Thurs. March 26th to celebrate literacy with your child.  The information is attached.  If you need a sticker sheet and stickers please stop by the preschool front desk as we have more on hand.  Have fun!!
  • Spring Break – March 9th – 12thSuncreek Kids will be closed (Allen ISD Spring Break)
  • Into The Woods, Jr – Suncreek UMC Cantate will be performing in Palmer Hall on Friday, March 20 at 7:30 pm and on Saturday, March 21 at 2:00 pm & 7:30 pm. Ticket prices: Evening shows are $7 for students, $10 for adults, and $5 for ages 5 and under.

Lastly, exciting news!!  The week of spring break our new playground (the one on the west side of the property for children in the Silver, Blue and Pre K classes) will be installed weather permitting.  We are in hopes that when we return from break we will have the playground all ready for the children to play on.  The remainder of the Stryker Park will be completed throughout spring with a completion end date of Memorial Day.  Thank you to those that have already generously supported monetarily to this very special project in memory of a very special family of Suncreek UMC. This wonderful park will benefit all youth and families at Suncreek for years to come.

Have a great weekend & stay warm!!
