Dear Parents,

It was so good to see everyone back at school this week!  Everyone looked so tall; I think everyone grew over Thanksgiving.  We are practicing good manners at our snack table.  We are saying “May I", "please", and "thank you" and chewing with our mouths closed.  Thanks for the great snacks!  All classes are working on numbers, shapes and memorizing our Christmas songs.  I will be sending out our Christmas Program with all the speaking parts for the MWF morning class and the PreK class.  The TTH class is invited to come up on stage at the end of our program and sing our last 3 songs.  The following is a list of events we have planned for December.  Please notice the class the event is for.  Please email me if you have questions.

  • Dec. 7 – PreK class is Caroling at the Community center for the Seniors.  We need to arrive at 12:15 for a class picture with Santa and will sing at 12:30.  We  will return to school afterwards.
  • Dec. 14 – The PreK class will carol at Prospect Living Center at 1:30 and return to school.  Parents are welcome.
  • Dec. 18 – MWF and PreK class will meet at PCCR Church at 9:00-11:15 for dress rehearsal for our Christmas Program.  No school at LLEV that day.
  • Dec. 18 – Christmas Program at 7:00 PM at PCCR Church for all families and friends.  MWF class and PreK class will perform.  TTh class will be invited to sing our last 3 songs with everyone.  Cake will be served in Fellowship hall with a visit from Santa.
  • Dec. 19 – PreK will carol at Good Sam’s at 12:00.  We will return to school.
  • Dec. 20 – 12:00 showing of Polar Express at the Reel Mountain Theater.  It is free! It is LLEV’s treat.  It is my favorite movie so come and enjoy it with me.

Dear Parents,

Thank you for your participation in our Fall Festival Fundraiser!  You baked, contributed to the silent auction, bought silent auction baskets and helped with all the games!  Some parents got stuck at a game all 2 hours!!  I’m very sorry about that!  We hope all families had a good time!

$3126 is the total for the day!  This will certainly add to our tuition assistance program.  We are a non-profit and fundraise a big part of our budget.  

We will have a Halloween parade for our classes.  Tomorrow’s TTh class should wear their costumes and we will visit the neighboring businesses.  If your child does not want to dress-up, please still come!


MWF Morning class parade – 8:45

MWF PreK – 12:15

You may send treats but please make them so children can take them home.  We will provide the snack for that day.  

Numbers, letters, cutting and Thanksgiving events are for November.  We will have many fine motor activities for beginning printing.  

We love teaching your children!  Your families are blessings to our school!

September 2018 Newsletter

Sept. 10, 2018

Dear Parents,

We had a great first week of school. It is always amazing to see how much our returning students have grown and fun to get to know our new students. Thank you for attending our open house. Thank you for bringing school supplies. The list is at the bottom of our snack handout. Also thank you for following our safety activities: holding hands in the parking lot, staying off the landscape rocks and staying off your cell phone while picking up your child. We are still working to stay on time with our dismissal. 

We love reading about your children! Thank you for helping with our first little homework. We are still waiting for some. If you need a new copy just ask. 

Most of you have found our snack calendar. Thanks for helping with snack! 

Our programs are better with our parent involvement!

Our first week objectives were to get everyone acquainted with our schedule, get everyone acquainted with each other and learn our rules for behavior. We keep our hands to ourselves, walk in the classroom, use soft voices in the classroom and use table manners at the snack table and wash hands after using the toilet. 

This week we are talking about the seasons and looking for signs of fall. Our vocabulary will include migration, hibernation and toleration. We will ask students to watch for signs of fall while at home and we will keep a list at school.  We are learning songs and poetry. Ask your child to recite “Trusting Butterfly.” (3,4 and 5 year olds) We are saying the pledge, singing America and today we will add the Lord’s Prayer. 

We love teaching your children, stimulating their curiosity and helping them to develop a love of learning. We can tell our families are also doing this at home!

This week Marlys will be out preparing for her daughter’s wedding.  Tisha will be my co-teacher all week and part of next.

Nancy, Tisha and Marlys
