Dear Parents, 

Welcome back! We hope you all had a wonderful Spring Break with your families. It is hard to believe we only have three months left of our school year!

Now that the weather is starting to warm up, we are looking forward to spending more time on the playground and authentically experiencing the signs of spring. This is also a great opportunity to work on our gross motor development through structured physical games and activities such as “duck, duck, goose” and relay races. If the weather cooperates, we will be having an outdoor Egg Hunt on April 12 & 13, along with another fire drill. 

Saturday, April 22 is Earth Day, so on April 20 & 21, we will be celebrating our beautiful planet! To help us get into the spirit of Earth Day, please send your child to school in blue and/or green clothing and if possible, send a snack that won’t create any waste such as wrappers. A great way to spark a conversation about how we can take care of our planet (and why it’s so important) is by reading the Lorax with your child or watching the film together. 

Towards the end of the month, our focus will shift to a new theme: Dinosaurs. We will explore what life on Earth looked like when dinosaurs roamed our planet, and get to know some of the many different kinds of dinosaurs that existed. Each class will get to collaborate on a big papier mache volcano. When the volcanos are complete, we will take them outside to watch them erupt! 

We are really looking forward to all the exciting projects we have planned for the next month! 

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us anytime at teacher@bluequillplayschool.ca or (780) 438-1491.

Ms. Sarah & Ms. Lindsay
