February is here!
February is going to be a fun month! We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day and learning lots of new things!
On Thursday, February 9th, we will be participating in a Rosati’s Fundraiser located at 1720 Bradford Lane in Normal. 25% of dine-in orders and 20% of carry-out orders will be donated to Shining Lights Preschool. The Zoo Lady will offer face painting from 5-7 pm. Please invite your family and friends to order out or eat at Rosati’s on this day. No voucher is needed–just mention Shining Lights Preschool when ordering. This offer is good at the Normal location only.
Our Valentine’s Parties will take place in the classrooms on Tuesday, February 14th. We will have regular class on this day. The morning party will start at 10:15. The afternoon party will start at 1:45. If you would like to help with the parties, please sign up in the classroom. Please bring a valentine for every child in the class. Your child’s name needs to be written on each valentine in the “from” section.
Please do not write names in the “to” section on the valentine. It is more fun for the children to deliver their valentines if they do not have to match the correct name with the correct bag.
In the 3’s room there are 10 children in the morning and 9 children in the afternoon. In the 4’s room, there are 18 children in the morning and 12 children in the afternoon.
