June Pre-K Newsletter
I cannot believe that June is upon us! It seems like September was such a short time ago! The year flew by fast, but it is not over yet. We have an exciting month ahead of us!
The beginning of the month will be filled with science and observing the world around us! We will begin by exploring space. We will have a discussion that explains space and the planets and focuses on planet Earth. Also, we will read fiction and nonfiction books on space throughout the week. We will discuss key vocabulary: day, night, the stars, the Moon, and the Sun.
Toward the middle of the month we will end our weekly letter of the alphabet. We will have an alphabet party to celebrate! It was hard work throughout the year, but it was worth it!
During the month of June, we will also talk about moving up to Kindergarten, and all the exciting changes that are going to happen. We will talk about how we have grown in our minds and our bodies throughout the school year. It will be a sad time as our goodbyes begin, but also a happy time, because we have so much to look forward to. Our 'Stepping Up' ceremony will be on Tuesday, June 24th.
We all want to say 'Thank You' for a wonderful year. It has been a pleasure to have each and every one of your children in the UPK program. I wish them all the best!

As we begin the month of June, we wonder where this school year has gone! We are also wondering when Miss Karyn will have her baby! I hope all of you will join us for our spring field trip into the world of bees, honey and apple trees at Montgomery Place Orchard on Wednesday, June 3. Please sign up to accompany us as a chaperone! Our Space theme will be ‘out of this world’, as we learn about stars and planets; astronauts and space ships, our sun and moon! We will explore gravity, and how it helps us to stay in place! We will be thinking about opposites and what is fact and what is fiction. We will work on a special project for Father’s Day! We will also be getting ready to celebrate with our friends who are “stepping up to Kindergarten” in the fall. During the last few days of school we will celebrate our year together and say our good-byes with lots of our favorite activities: water fun, bubbles, play-dough and paints!
We would like to thank you for sharing your children with us and for the many ways you offered support throughout the year. These last days of school are always filled with mixed emotions. We are thrilled to have been a part of and witness to the growth of each child this year; to see their wings unfold and to share with them the excitement of what their future will hold. We will also miss this very special group of children! Our love and best wishes go with those who are moving on. Many friends will attend the summer session and enjoy summertime fun with the summer staff. We look forward to welcoming back those children who will be returning to First Steps next September.
Have a wonderful summer! Come back to visit us!
