Dear Parents,


Our Theme: Restaurant
Weekly Sight Words: was, will, and, not, got

Last week we focused on the topic of Safety and one of our major goals for the children was for them to have their full addresses and at least one phone number memorized by the end of the week. The students worked hard and accomplished this goal and we are happy to hear that families are continuing to have these important safety conversations at home!

This week the children will be busy working on our Restaurant theme! We will read Pizza Problem and Working In a Restaurant. We've decided to "open" a pizza restaurant which we voted shall be named Pizza Pantry! We will be creating menus, signs and restaurant decor. We will create the list of ingredients needed for our pizzas and our fruit kabobs dessert, prep the ingredients, and get ready to serve our Pre-K families! Our "Grand Opening" of Pizza Pantry is this Friday May 26th at 10am for parents to enjoy!

This week we celebrate Pietro's 5th birthday on Wednesday afternoon and Bill's 5th birthday on Friday afternoon! It's also Ms. McDonald's birthday on Thursday!

We have a special Mystery Reader on Friday prior to our Pizza Pantry Restaurant Grand Opening! What a busy week (especially Friday!).

• We are closed next Monday, May 29th in observance of Memorial Day.
• Our Pre-K Father's Day event is on June 2nd at 10am. Please send (via Mrs. Mahnken's email) all digital photos of your child with his/her father before the end of this week (Friday May 26th). Thank you!
• Our Turtle Creek Carnival is on Thursday June 8th from 5:30pm - 7pm. Please join us and enjoy this super fun evening!! Please extend the invite to your friends and family also! We love to meet new people!
• Our End of the Year Pre-K Class Party will be held in our classroom on June 9th. We will soon have a list posted for items you may sign up to contribute, if you wish. Thank you for helping us celebrate the end of our amazing Pre-K school year here at Turtle Creek!
• There is no need to return the Sight Words on the ring. We sent home the last of our Sight Words. Continue to practice reading and writing them at home now and during the summer. Continue reading together daily at home as our wonderful Pre-K children begin to soon blossom into beginner Kindergarteners!
• Continue to dress your child for outdoor fun (sneakers are preferable).
• Please update your child's "Extra Clothes" for the warmer change in weather. Consider short sleeves and other seasonally-appropriate dress for Spring/Summer.
• Save the Date: Friday June 16th at 9am is our Turtle Creek Graduation/End of the Year School Celebration at the Monmouth Worship Center. There is no guest limit.
• The last day of school is Wednesday June 14th (half day).

Looking forward to seeing you at school on Monday

Mrs. Mahnken, Ms. Ferina, Ms. Kasey and Ms. Silecchia
