“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…” Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You’ll Go

On March 1st and 2nd the BUMNS children celebrated the birthday of Dr. Seuss. The children wore pajamas to school and were served donut holes and hot chocolate during snack time. Dr. Seuss holds a special place in the hearts of many because he wrote with the joy, concern and passion a child carries. The teachers honored Dr. Seuss by reading favorite books he wrote. Children love the rhyming, plots and art in his books. For many of us, our first introduction to literature was through the wonderful world of Dr. Seuss.

It is wonderful to see the joy on BUMNS children when they are having fun. It would also be wonderful to capture their innocence forever. In light of recent tragic news, it is important to let your preschooler know they are loved and safe. Fred Rogers often told this story about when he was a boy and would see scary things on the news: “My mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of disaster, I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers — so many caring people in this world.”

The 3, 4 & 5 Day children have been learning about our local community helpers. During the month of February the children donated pennies. $100 in pennies was collected. The money will be donated to the Easttown Police.

The 5 Day classes will celebrate their 100th day of school on Monday, March 5th. The children will count 100 objects, jump 100 times, and read 100 words. Pizza will be served.
On Wednesday, March 14th, the teachers will have an in-service day to prepare for conferences. Conferences are scheduled for Thursday, March 15th and Friday, March 16th. Parent-teacher conferences provide a means for communication between parents and teachers. Your child’s social/emotional, physical, and intellectual and language development has been evaluated by their teacher. The conference is designed to give you an insight into your child’s preschool progress. Sitting will be provided for children enrolled in BUMNS.
