Music Week will be held from March 16th - 20th. Each day will start with a morning assembly. We talk about keeping the beat, our voices as instruments, and String, Wind, and Percussion instruments. During the assembly, guest musicians demonstrate different types of instruments, including piano, hand bells, violin, and flute. The children make their own musical instruments and play along with our guest musicians.
Mark your calendars! Our annual Art Show will be held on Tuesday evening, April 28th from 6:30-7:30 pm. All of our WNS children will have artwork on display. The show is a time for our children to bring their moms, dads, siblings, grandmas, grandpas, and anyone else who is important in their lives to show off their creations. Refreshments will be served. A sign-up sheet will be posted outside each classroom door for parents willing to provide cookies for this occasion. The children take this exhibit very seriously and are quite proud of their masterpieces. Please plan to join us.
A Visit from the Dentist
In February, all of the children enjoyed a visit from Pearly Whites of Berkeley Heights. They talked about the importance of taking care of our teeth, brushing our teeth (twice a day), and what kinds of foods are not good for our teeth (sticky and sugary). The children went home with a new toothbrush and toothpaste.
Spring Enrichment Camp
WNS will again be offering Spring Camp for all enrolled children. Spring Enrichment Camp is scheduled for June 8th - June 16th. Camp runs from 9:00 - 11:30 am. A separate flyer and registration form with additional information will be sent home at a later date.

Hopefully you saw the pictures on Facebook this month. They are adorable. Our website has any information you need about Westminster Nursery School. Try to visit both sites so you don’t miss your child’s pictures!
Please order from Scholastic so we can get free materials from points we earn. They have books for $1. Anything would help.
