Today is the first day of Week of the Young Child! Week of the Young Child happens annually and is sponsored by the National Association for Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
Each year there is a different theme for the week and this year the theme is Early Years Are Learning Years. The purpose of this Week of the Young Child "is to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs" (www.naeyc.org).
Partners In Learning celebrates and recognizes Week of the Young Child by having each day of the week be themed around something special!
We would love to see pictures of your children (and yourselves) dressing in the spirit of Week of the Young Child! Pictures will be put together to use for a poster that we will use next year during the Week of the Young Child! Show your spirit! Post pictures in the comment section below!
Monday- Hat Day - All children need to wear a hat. Let's see who can have the funniest hat! (Check out the great picture of one of our children with an awesome Dr. Seuss hat on ready for school this Monday morning!)
Tuesday- Inside Out Day - Wake up and turn those clothes inside out and wear them to school! We will look so silly!
Wednesday- Wacky Day - Dress wacky. The wackier the better! How funny can we look?
Thursday- Crazy Hair Day. Let your imagination run wild!
Friday- Pajama Day and Breakfast at School - Use the time that you would take to dress your child for school to come and eat breakfast with your child. We will have a special treat for everyone!
Also on Friday, we will be having our Family Game Night! Turn in the registration ticket that your child's teacher handed out and bring the whole family for a night of fun! Sponsered by Just the Thing!
Saturday- Milk + Bookies! Boys and girls will be provided the opportunity to select, purchase and inscribe books that are then donated to their peers who do not have access to books of their own. The fun-filled events feature music, story time and, of course, milk and cookies. This Milk + Bookies event will benefit the children that receive CBRS therapy services through Partners In Learning. Story time with Ms. Jane Welch from the Rowan Public Library will be at 1:15 and again at 2:15! Ice cream sundaes will be sold benefiting Relay for Life.
All of the children will have their art displayed throughout the community. Your child's location will be posted in their classroom. Please take the time to go with your child to see their artwork.
Scholastic Book Fair will be all week in the Resource Room.
