Learning About our Community
During the month of May, WNS classes will continue to talk about their community. Our four-year-olds will be visiting the Berkeley Heights Post Office and the Berkeley Heights Fire Department. Please check the classroom doors for the dates your child’s class will be taking their trips and to sign the permission slip.
The Westminster Art Show and Reception will be held on Tuesday evening, April 30th from 6:30-7:30 PM. “Doing art” is a very important part of our curriculum at Westminster. As with music, art gives children another way to express their ideas. The painting, gluing, cutting and collaging that we do is much more than a “product” to take home at the end of the day. Each project helps children learn to make decisions, strengthens their ability to focus, and helps them explore their own creative spirit. Using a wealth of materials, each child is encouraged to develop that wonderful sense of pride in what they can accomplish, all the while having a wonderful time.
Mother’s Day Brunches
Our annual Mother’s Day brunches will be held Tuesday, May 7th at 9:15 AM for the Tuesday/Thursday and 4 day classes and Friday, May 10th at 9:15 AM for the Monday/Wednesday/Friday classes. Catering, entertainment, and gifts will be provided by your children. If Mom cannot attend, you are more than welcome to make arrangements for another special person to attend. We expect the “brunch” to last for 30-40 minutes.
Our annual Field Day will take place on Wednesday, April 24th. Our movement teacher, Mrs. Gonzalez, coordinates this event. In order for all of the activities to run smoothly, we need a number of parent volunteers. Check your calendars to see if you are available. Class mothers will be contacting parents in their classes to obtain volunteers.
With spring approaching, we know children want to wear their new sandals, clogs, jellies, etc. However, they do pose a safety issue on the stairs, during movement, and on the playground. Please be sure your child is wearing securely tied (or velcro) sneakers.
