Sentries Newsletter East: August 2013

July has been a fun filled month. We toured MU, Hy-Vee, MU Dairy Farm, Walk About Acres and went fishing at Bass Pro, saw a movie and went to the spray ground. We were also very busy learning about dinosaurs, the ocean, pets and pond life. We want to say good luck to all of our children that will be leaving us this month and venturing off to Kindergarten. You will all be greatly missed.

We are going on field trips every Wednesday and Thursday.  Please sign the field trip form each week located on the wall to the right of the classroom door.

Each Monday throughout the summer we will be enjoying the outdoors through sensory activities and water play at school. Our last day of water play will be the 19th of August. Please send your child to school each Monday in a swimsuit (one they can get messy in), closed toe water shoes, towel, extra change of clothes and sunscreen already applied.  The children have enjoyed this extra sensory and outdoor time.
