So much is happening in PreK2 this month!
Permission slips for our upcoming Field Trip were sent home last week (2/1/19). If you have not returned yours, PLEASE FILL OUT AND SEND YOUR SLIP, ALONG WITH THE FEE OF $11, TO SCHOOL ON MONDAY. Jazak Allahu Khair in advance.
HOMEWORK ! ! ! !
Alhamdulillah, our 1st week of homework went well. We will send homework home with your child the week of Feb 18, 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.
We started our BOB Reading Books this week. Alhamdulillah, the kids are enjoying reading the books. Congratulations to Ibrahim, Abdullah, and Eshaal, who are in Collection 3, and Haya, who is in 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 bulletin board in the Lobby, in the Parent's Corner. ***We are asking for 2 volunteers for each day.***
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 21 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.*****

VOLUNTEERS FOR 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***
VOLUNTEERING AT SCHOOL
This is to remind parents the guidelines when volunteering at school. We are kindly asking parents to avoid bringing younger children when volunteering in any of the school activities due to the safety of their children. In some situations, we will make the exception ONLY if the parent can manage to strap the child in a stroller. However, younger siblings are not allowed at any time to be in the classrooms. Family events such Family Reading Night, Cultural Event, etc. are the only exceptions. Please see below.
· Please schedule with the school/teacher ahead of time before you come to volunteer.
We want to ensure that we have a project ready for you when you come in and cannot
· Please do not bring younger siblings. Parents should make babysitting arrangements for
their younger siblings.
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... jazakallahu khyran in advance.

STUDENT ILLNESSES AND ABSENCES:
If your child will not be in attendance due to illness or any other reason, please notify us by email as well as the office by 9AM. To report an absence, parents should either call the school at 309-691-9089 or send an email to email@example.com as soon as possible. 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.
Since the weather is constantly changing, please remember to keep your child at home if they have:
· Fever greater than or equal to 100.5 degrees Fahrenheit: Children must stay home 24 hours after fever subsides. They are not to be given fever-reducing medication and sent to school. Your child will expose other students to the sickness as well.
· Heavy drainage (clear or discolored) from the mouth, nose, eyes, or ears
· Red discoloration to the whites of the eye(s)
· Skin rashes of any kind which have not been diagnosed by a doctor
· Severe abdominal pain, vomiting, or diarrhea during the previous night.
· A painful, red throat, even if fever is not present.
· A deep, hacking cough
· If your child becomes sick during the day, the office staff will contact you to pick them up.
LEAVING SCHOOL EARLY
Parents are required to notify the teacher and the office if their children need to leave school early due to an appointment or any other reason. Advanced notification will allow the teacher time to prepare for your child’s departure from the class and reduce interruptions.
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.
