What's Going on in PreK2 ?
So much is happening in PreK2 this month!
You may have noticed in the past few days that your child has been coming home with handwriting worksheets. In addition to this, we are also learning about finger spacing between words, and making sure that our words fit correctly on the lines.
HOMEWORK ! ! ! !
We will send homework home with your child every Monday, in sha Allah. The homework will cover what we are learning, or have learned, in Language Arts and Math. It's just a review, so don't worry, it will be checked, but not graded. Please return the homework to the classroom on FRIDAY. Jazak Allahu Khair in advance.
Congratulations to Ibrahim, Abdullah and Eshaal, who are reading our Level 1 books; Haya, Lana, Younus, Zaki, Mayan, Yafa, and AbdurRahman, who are in Collection 3; and to Sarah, Ruqaiya, Khadija, Yamen, Aaqib and Hashem, who are in Collection 2. We also have quite a few that are a book or so from starting Collection 2. The kids are so excited about reading, which means...
...We will need parent volunteers! We need YOU to read with our class on Mondays -- Thursdays from 2-3. Our Sign Up Sheet will be placed on the wall next to our classroom. ***We are asking for 2 volunteers for each day.***
---->PLEASE DO NOT WRITE , COLOR, OR UNDERLINE WORDS IN THE BOOKS; THE PAGES ARE DIFFICULT TO READ WHEN THIS HAPPENS, AND EVERY CHILD IN OUR CLASS WILL BE READING THESE BOOKS. JAZAK ALLAHU KHAIR IN ADVANCE.<-----
Jazak Allahu Khairan to the parents that have volunteered to help with BOB Reading so far; we still have many days available for the upcoming weeks if you are interested.
The time that you spend with our angels during BOB time will count toward your volunteer hours. Jazak Allahu Khairun in advance.
LUNCH / SNACK
*****We have 2 snack times daily (am. and pm), with lunch time in between. PLEASE REMEMBER TO SEND BOTH SNACKS, EATING UTENSILS IF NEEDED, AND A DRINK WITH YOUR CHILD. Make sure that lunch is something that your child will like to eat; this way there is nothing wasted because he/she doesn't like the smell, taste, etc. Also, PLEASE DO NOT SEND SODA,CANDY, OR CHOCOLATE AS A SNACK, it will be sent home in your child's backpack. Jazak Allahu Khairun in advance.
****AFTER SCHOOL CARE****
If your child be staying after school, please provide a snack for this time also.
**** School ends at 3:15 pm; I am on duty until 3:30 pm. As much as I would love to talk to you during pick-up, I have to focus on the children. Chances are, with 20 children in PreK2, if you mention something to me during this time, I may forget it. If you have any questions about your child's day, or are picking your child up early the next day, please send an email to let me know. Also, if you have any questions about your child's academic progress, please email me. This way we can set up a time to meet and talk about your concerns. Jazak Allahu Khayrun in advance.*****

HOT LUNCH PROGRAM
Hot Lunch will be this Wednesday on the 13th. If you have signed your child up for Hot Lunch, please remember to send am snack and pm snack, along with something to drink, on this day. This week's lunch will be:
Papa John's Cheese Pizza
VOLUNTEERS FOR HOT LUNCH PROGRAM
Volunteers are also needed to help out with the Hot Lunch Program . If you are interested in helping, please sign up on the sheet that will be posted on the Parents Corner bulletin board, in the Lobby. If you have any questions regarding the lunch program or PTO, please contact the PTO at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*** This also counts toward your Parent Volunteer hours for the semester***
PreK2 will have PE with Coach Hasan on Mondays and Wednesdays, in sha Allah. If your child will be wearing boots, dress shoes, etc., on these days, PLEASE PROVIDE A PAIR OF GYM SHOES FOR THEM TO PARTICIPATE IN PE COMFORTABLY.
SHOW AND TELL
Show and Tell is on Friday, in sha Allah. We are looking forward to seeing what your child wants to share with us on this day.
**WE HAVE 20 CHILDREN, so please bring only one toy to share with the class.** Thanks in advance.
CHANGE OF CLOTHING
Please provide an extra change of clothing for your child (top and bottom- weather appropriate, socks, underwear)... sometimes they may have accidents with a spill or other things... this also eliminates us calling you during the day to bring clothing items... Jazak Allahu Khyran in advance.

Also, if your child will be late due to an early morning appointment, please bring a note from the doctor, so that the tardy may be excused.

As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or send an email; if emails are sent Friday after 3:30 pm, I will reply on Monday morning, in sha Allah.
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ الثَّبَاتَ فِي الْأَمْرِ، وَالْعَزِيمَةَ عَلَى الرُّشْدِ
O Allah, I ask You for steadfastness in all my affairs and determination in following the right path.
