Hello Preschool Families!!!
I understand that not everyone is able to devote time to helping in our classroom due to work schedules and other commitments. I wanted to make sure to provide you with alternative ways you can help our class learn this school year! All of these opportunities are completely optional. Please do not feel obligated to donate. I simply wanted to communicate ideas for those who are interested. :)
One area you can help with is our Art Center. Preschoolers are very busy in the Art Center all year long, creating masterpieces. You can help by keeping our center fully stocked with fun supplies the students can add to their creations! Please don't feel the need to buy any of these. You might have some of these items laying around the house! Some ideas for what you could donate:
Another area you can help with is our class prize box! Students receive hole punches for good behavior. When their hole punch cards are full, they get to pick a prize from our prize box to take home. Again, you don't need to purchase any of these items. It is possible that you have these laying around the house (or simply items your kids don't use any more that you'd love to get rid of!). You might also have leftover items from a birthday party. These make great additions to our class prize box! Some ideas for what you could donate:
Finally, you can help with our writing center! I am trying to make the writing center more engaging for students this year. If you have any of these items laying around the house or any extra, we would love to add them to our center to help encourage emergent writing skills! Some ideas for what you could donate:
Please do not feel obligated to purchase any of these items. If you have extras or would like to help out, we would really appreciate it! These items can be brought in at any time during the school year. Please place a note in your child's folder if you bring them in so I know to check for it in his/her backpack. Thanks again!!! I'm looking forward to a great school year!
