Hello Parents,

As we continue to celebrate in this 4th week of Easter we realize that there are many events coming up that include preschool.

  • Jog-a-thon is tomorrow, Thursday, April 24. Preschool does participate in the jogathon, rain or shine. We will give them their shirts tomorrow. (Maybe send a sweatshirt to wear under their Jogathon shirts.) We will wear our shirts over whatever we are wearing because we get a mark on our t-shirt for every lap we run. There will be a small track set up within the official track for preschool. We will walk over to the MVHS track at 1:30 with the whole school and parents are always welcome to join us. There will be a smaller track set up in the center for preschool. Please work on getting jogathon donations
  • Today we had the “Real Food Show.” It was great fun! Ask your child about it.
  • Class pictures are Monday, May 15. Please fill out the order form that was in the brown envelope. Uniforms look great for the class picture, but students can also just dress in their “Sunday best.”
  • Kindergarten kick off is Friday, May 3. This is when the students who will be going to kindergarten at ICRS will go over to the big school for an assessment. There is no need for parents to come to bring them. As long as they are in preschool that day we will have a runner who will bring them over the library for their appointment.
  • Spirit Days – Student Council will be hosting themed spirit days each Friday of May.  Preschool is welcome to join in the “spirit.”

Friday, May 3 – “At ICRS, we are all one team” SPORTS DAY, wear sports shirts or jerseys

Friday, May 10 – “Show your support for our nation” RED, WHITE, & BLUE DAY, wear red, white, & blue

Friday, May 17 – “Dress as your best self” FANCY FREE DRESS, wear semi-formal attire (dresses and ties encouraged)

Friday, May 24 – “Colleges build onto your ICRS academic foundation” COLLEGE DAY, wear clothing that supports your favorite college

Friday, May 31  – “Try to be a rainbow in someone’s day” RAINBOW DAY, wear the colors of the rainbow.

  • We have been talking about staying healthy, eating healthy foods, watching out for sugar, and washing our hands thoroughly. We used glitter to represent germs and practiced hand washing for a minimum of 20 seconds. The following song is a good one to sing when washing. It is sung to the tune of Frere Jacques


Tops and bottoms, tops and bottoms

In between, in between

Scrub them all together, scrub them all together

Squeaky clean, squeaky clean… (repeat)

Thanks for the egg cartons! I can always use more…….

Easter Blessings!
