Valentine’s Day Party
Each playschool class will be having their own Valentine’s Day party. We are planning on following the regular classroom routine, however, will be including a few different games and activities related to the Valentine’s Day theme. Children are to bring their regular healthy snack that day, as they will be decorating cookies for a special treat.
The children will be handing out their Valentine’s Day cards to each of their friends at the party. We would really appreciate it if you DO NOT write each child’s name on the cards. We have found in the past years, that it takes a very large amount of time to hand out to specific children and they get very restless waiting for their turn. If you could just write who the card is from, both Lorraine and I will be very grateful!! If you do choose to give out Valentine cards, please give one to each child in the class as to avoid hurt feelings. I have included the number of children in each class below.
· Monday/Wednesday Morning – 15 children
· Monday/Wednesday Afternoon – 6 children
· Tuesday/Thursday Morning – 21 children
· Tuesday/Thursday Afternoon – 16 children
The annual Pink Shirt Anti-Bullying Day is on Wednesday, February 28th. The Carstairs Playschool feels it is important to join the nation in teaching the children how not to be a bully. We will be observing anti-bullying day on Wednesday, February 28th, and Thursday, March 1st. Please have your child wear pink on those days to support this great message.
