March at CWG-WWS

Hello to all of our families,

Well I hope that you all are doing ok after yesterday’s storm. This has been an interesting winter, to say the least.

Wacky Wednesday was a huge success with lots and lots of crazy hairdo’s. The children really enjoyed seeing each other and the teacher’s hair so wacky.

I am writing to you to make sure you are aware of various events going on in the classrooms and also things that are going on for families this month. We have a fun month planned and the following are dates to remember:

  • Thursday March 15 Parent Teacher conferences for MIss Meghan & Miss Catherine’s 3 year olds. Sign up genius has gone out to all of you to sign up for times that are convenient for you. If you did not receive this, please let Meghan know so that you can sign up. School will be in session on this day and Mrs. Murphy and Miss Rachael will be subbing in Miss Meghan/Miss Catherine’s room.
  • Monday 3/19-Friday 3/23 we will be hosting a Scholastic Book fair. Nothing better than new books to read. These books are quality books with fair prices and 1/2 of the sale proceeds are distributed among the teachers to purchase books for the classrooms. Mrs. Coumas and I will be at the bookfair in the mornings at drop off, if that is a good time for you and your child to make a purchase. We will be open all during Open House on Thursday evening for families to attend also.
  • Thursday 3/22 from 6:00-7:30pm will be our Spring Open House. Drop by any time between 6 and 7:30 to browse in the classrooms to see the children’s artwork and talk with teachers, myself and other families. Children are invited to come along and can be comfy wearing their pj’s. We will be having a scavenger hunt that will wind around the building going from the classrooms, to the book fair, to a cozy area to read books and then ending in our hall for refreshments. This will be such a fun night. Hope to see everyone there. The whole family is invited.
  • Wednesday 3/21 will be Beach Day for our 4 year old students. The classrooms will be transformed into the “beach” and the children will be making their own sand cups for snack. The children can wear beach gear and bring in beach towels if they would like.
  • Friday 3/23 will be Parent Teacher conferences for all classes except for Miss Meghan/Miss Catherine’s 3’s. Sign up genius has also been emailed to you for sign up times. If you did not receive this, please get in touch with your child’s teacher to sign up for a conference. School will not be session on this day, as all teachers will be busy with conferences. This is an adult only time, however if you are bringing your children Mrs. Kupchik and MIss Chrissy will be available to watch your children. All conferences will take place in your child’s classroom except for Miss Meghan & Miss Catherine’s 4’s. They will take place in a conference room on the main floor of the building. As you come into the building from the parking lot take a left and the conferences will take place in room 6 which is the first room on the right.
  • Monday 3/26 will be PJ day for Mrs. Murphy’s class. Have your child come in wearing their PJ’s and lots of fun will be had having a PJ party.
  • Wednesday 3/28 will be PJ Party day for our 4 year old and Pre K students
  • Thursday 3/29 will be PJ party day for Miss Meghan and Miss Catherine’s 3 year olds.

This as always, promises to be a wonderful time to be at CWG-WWS. Have a great March and hopefully Mother Nature is a little kinder to us all.

Warm regards,

Chris

 

Fabulous February

Good Morning to our families,

There is a bustle of activity going on in all classes today. Some classes are having buddy days, some are dancing and paintheartwithbowing with ice cubes, some are playing with penguins in the water table with ice cubes and all are working hard on Valentine’s presents for parents. The sound in CWG-WWS is the most wonderful sound with all the chatting and laughter going on.

I have attached a flyer for our fundraiser at Margarita’s on Thursday Feb. 8. Remember that this is for dine in and take out. Just as long as you show them the flyer, we will receive 20% of the sales. I’ll be there with my family around 6 and hope to see lots of our families there. Thank you ahead of time for taking time out of your busy schedules to help out with this fundraiser.

Valentine’s celebrations will take place next week as follows:

  • Tuesday 2/13
    • Mrs. Kupchik’s class
    • Miss Meghan/Miss Catherine’s 3 year olds
  • Wednesday 2/14
    • Miss Meghan/Miss Catherine’s 4 year olds
    • Miss Angie’s class
    • Mrs. Murphy’s class
    • Mrs. Louis’ class

If you have signed up to bring in some goodies, please drop them off in the morning during carpool.

Also remember that in observance of President’s Day the school will be closed on Monday February 19 and our February break will take place from 2/26-3/2. We will resume school on 3/5.

We thank families who have been so kind to send in items on our wish list. This truly helps us out in the classrooms.

For a brief look ahead, events scheduled for the month of March include:

  • Scholastic Book Fair  –  week of March19-23
  • Spring Open House  –  Thursday March 22

During the week of Feb. 18 you will be receiving a Developmental Profile on your child.  This contains various skills that we are looking for in your child’s development. In March we will have Parent Teacher Conferences. We will send further information about this in the beginning of March.

Well I think that’s it for now. As always thank you for letting us spend time with your beautiful children. We definitely are the lucky ones.

Warm regards,

Chris

 

 

 

 

 

 

Happy 2018

Hello all,

Well, the end of December and beginning of our New Year have certainly brought us some variety of weather. We have gone from 6 degrees up to 50 degrees within a short period of time. However with this warmer weather comes the opportunity to take the children outside for lots of snow play. Take a peek at our facebook page to see all of the wonderful pictures of the children playing in the snow. What unbelievable fun they have had, making snow angels, sliding down snow hills, jumping in the snow piles and we are hearing lots and lots of squeals of laughter. This is the perfect combination of good snow and warmer weather to play in it.

Holiday greetings!!

 Hello all,   holidaycheer

Well let me tell you, this school is full of Holiday bustle. Between making gifts, practicing songs for Holiday Performances and decorating the classrooms, we have all kinds of wonderful activities going on. Wait until you see your gifts,  they are the best.

Make sure you read your child’s December newsletter. It is chock full of dates and information for activities during the month.

There will be PJ parties, Polar Express Days, color days, letter days and learning about Hanukkah, Candy canes, reindeer, gingerbread and many more topics. It is a fun time to be in preschool (although it’s always fun being in preschool)!

Let me remind you of our Holiday shows. They will take place on Tuesday 12/19 and Wednesday 12/20 from 9-10am. Please look at your child’s invitation that came home this week, to see which day their class’ show is.

We have received a few gift cards for the Nashua Children’s Home. If you are able to contribute for a child’s Holiday gift please send in a gift card by Friday December 15. Teachers will be bringing the gift cards over to the NCH that day and we would like to contribute as much as we can.Thank you for anything you can do.

Registration forms went home this week and are due back by Monday December 18. After this time, registration will be open to the public. Please keep in mind that if your child is going off to Kindergarten and you need after school care, they can join our Discovery program with Miss Chrissy. Just fill out the registration form and circle which days you think they will be coming. This can be changed once school starts .We would love to see the children back at our school for afternoons.

We are in need of refreshments and goodies for the Holiday shows. If you would like to bring in some Holiday baked goods, please let me or your child’s teacher know and you can just bring them in the morning of the show.

The staff of CWG-WWS truly wishes you a very Happy Holiday Season and a wonderful 2018.  We so love and enjoy your children and all of you and look forward to seeing you in the New Year.

Warm regards,

Chris

 

 

November greetings

Hello to all of our CWG-WWS families,            thankful

Well that was certainly an interesting month, weather wise, in October. We hope that you all have power restored to your homes. I guess one saving grace is that it wasn’t snow.

As you can see from reading the November newsletter, we have a very busy month planned.  This morning we had the pleasure of having two of our Dads, Joe Rousseau and Brent Osborn come in to talk to the children, to go along with our Community Heroes theme. Joe is a Nashua Police Officer and Brent is a Veteran who served in Iraq and Korea. Thank you both for such a wonderful presentation.  We want the children to learn that there are such great people in our community who help protect us and keep us free.  Continue reading

Specialist update

Hello all,falls

We have been told by many parents that their children are enjoying going to Mrs. Kupchik for Specialist.  I can’t even explain to you how much fun and how much learning is going on with our Specialist program.  The children are thrilled when it is their turn to go to Mrs. Kupchik’s classroom. I would like to give you a few examples of what she is doing with the children. Continue reading

SPECIALIST

Hi all,

We have had a wonderful start to our school year and we hope that your children are loving school as much as the staff does. We have a new addition to our curriculum that I would like to explain to you. Lena Kupchik, who teaches our 2 years olds, on Tuesday and Thursday will now be taking on the role of Specialist with our 4 year old and Pre K classes. This is a very exciting position for Mrs. Kupchik and she is so enthusiastic about working with your children. Mrs. Kupchik will work with the children in groups of 6 for a period of 20-25 minutes.

April Activities

handprinttreeGreetings to all,
Except for the weather, March was a wonderful month, especially at CWG-WWS. Between Open House complete with a campsite, the Scholastic Book Fair, field trips to Margaritas for our Kindergarten students, dance classes, art displays, Pajama Day, Beach Day and Wacky Wednesday our classrooms were chocked full of activities and excitement.  What fun!!!
April promises to be another month filled to the brim with creativity and learning.  Tonight is our fundraiser at Margaritas and tomorrow is the 4 year old & Kindergarten field trip to the See Science Museum. That’s a great start to our month.
Our 3 year old students have started a unit on pets and today was Dog day.  The children had so much fun with all of the “dogs” in the building, grooming them and taking them to the vet.   They will go on to learn about cats and guinea pigs.
Look for beautiful artwork from the 4 year old and K unit on Eric Carle.  What a fantastic illustrator he is with wonderful stories to go along with the pictures.
Our Time to Clay event will take place on 4/10 & 4/11.  Lots of painting will be going on.  Can’t wait to see how they all turn out.
The Nashua Public Library will be hosting  the Early Childhood Fair on Sunday April 9.  There will be lots and lots of free activities.  Come and visit our table if you attend.
So as you can see, the children will be very busy learning and playing this month.
I wish you all a very Happy Spring.  Let’s all hope for some lovely sunny weather.
Best regards,
Chris
