Dressing for Pre-Kindergarten
Practical, durable, and very washable clothing is best suited for Pre-Kindergarten. We will spend a great deal of time on the floor. Children of this age, as you well know, tend to wipe dirty hands on themselves without thinking. We will use washable materials and paint shirts, but accidents do happen.
Christian pupils should show modestyin their clothing, grooming,andappearance (including jewelry, accessories, and make-up).
• Clothing should be neat and clean, not frayed or worn looking.
• Sleeveless shirts or tank tops without a shirt worn over them are not permitted. All outer shirts must have sleeves.
• Tops that are too short, too low, or too tight are not to be worn.
• Tank top or camisoles worn under a top must lie flat on the chest, no cleavage showing.
• Shorts may be worn to class during September and May. Shorts and skirts are to be no shorter than 4” above the knee even if leggings are worn.
• Clothing and hair style trends that drawattention may cause disruption and are not to be worn.(e.g. writing on the back side of pants, mohawks, etc.)
• Children playing in the gym must wear clean non-marking tennis shoes.
Personal Items at Pre-Kindergarten
Toy guns, swords and other toys that could hurt other children will not be allowed at Pre-Kindergarten. We would ask that children not bring personal belongings to Pre-Kindergarten without prior permission, unless it is a “Mystery Bag” item.
The Mystery Bag is our way of doing “Show and Tell.” It is done daily by one student at a time and coincides with bringing the snack. Each child takes turns placing an item from home into the bag along with three clues about that item. The children then try to guess what it is and at last the item is taken out of the bag to be shared with the other students.
In order to promote the act of sharing, each child will be asked to provide snacks during the year. Parentswill be asked, on a rotating basis, to help supply the snack. A snack schedule will be sent home on the monthly calendar. Please feel free to bring anything you feel will provide the children with a nutritious snack. Snacks could also be related to our theme of the week. Be creative and have fun with the snack. The children enjoy being “snack person.”
Milk will be provided at a small cost for the year.
Please be sure to let the teacher know if your child has any food allergies.
Field trips maybe taken as often as time and schedule allows. A field trip consent form must be signed by parents.
