Scotties March 2012 Newsletter

Welcome Spring!

General News

March is coming in packed with activities for the Scottie class. Before we start with all of the plans for the month, we would like to offer a great big thank you to all of our parent helpers who made the Valentine Party so successful. Thanks also for all of the goodies for the 100 Day Party. The kids have waited all year for that one and it was worth the wait!

Letter of the Week

Field Trips and Parties

Our field trip to the Omniplex is on Monday, March 5th from 8:45 until 2:30. We will meet at 8:45 in the back parking lot to load the bus. All Scotties and helpers will need to bring sack lunches with a drink (no lunch boxes, please!) We like to divide up into small groups for this trip so that all the children get to spend time looking at all the fun stuff. We would love to have you join us if your schedule allows.

On Friday, March 16th, we will have our Pajama Party. We will wear our pajamas, robes and slippers to school. Your child may bring a pillow, blanket and special sleeping friend. Please make sure that you mark everything so we are sure to send it all back home. We will spend the morning reading bedtime stories, relaxing and making “breakfast.” If your child will be staying for lunch and extended day, please send a change of clothes for the afternoon.

In conjunction with our transportation unit, the Scotties will be riding the train to Pauls Valley on Wednesday, April 11th. We need to order tickets ahead of time so we will need to know if you are planning on joining us. We ride the train to Pauls Valley and the Gingerbread bus meets us there. We will play in a local park and have our snack. Then we will head back to Norman. There is limited space on the bus for the return trip. If we have a large number of parents who wish to go we may have to have some of you carpool back.
