Card Exchange and Friendship Fruit Salad
VALENTINE CARD EXCHANGE (Preschool only):
Preschoolers will exchange Valentine cards on Wednesday, February 14. Teachers will set up special bags in the classroom that the children made for Valentine cards. Please have your child (or help them) write their name on each card before school. Be sure to leave the “to:” portion blank as the children will be delivering their own Valentines. (Clever as they all are, reading the names of all of their classmates is tough!) Please bring one for each classmate. There are 19 children in North Preschool and 21 children in South Preschool.
FRIENDSHIP FRUIT SALAD (Infants, Toddlers, and Preschoolers):
On Valentine’s Day, we will also celebrate the friendships we have made this year at PFM. Please send your child to school with a piece of fruit on Monday, February 12 or Tuesday, February 13, so that we have fruit to make our salad on Valentine’s Day. The teachers will have a place for the fruit to be displayed in your child’s classroom. They will have a learning circle where they discuss the types of fruit brought in, who brought it, what colors and shapes they are, and whether or not they need to be peeled, among other interesting things. The children (with the help of their teachers) will then cut up the fruit, and put them all together in a big bowl that the whole class will then share for snack that day. They will also discuss what it means to be a good friend on this day.
