Dear XDC Families,

Morning XDC Pre-K News
May 1st– 5th
Hello morning day care families! Thank you for your support of our auction! Your children will benefit immensely from the generosity of so many in this wonderful community.
Last Friday we witnessed what happens to water when we throw garbage into our oceans and streams. Using coffee grounds, plastic, dirt, and a few other materials we made predictions about what might happen to the water when we put certain items into it.
This week in morning care we complete the alphabet with the letter Z. The children are very excited about this, as you may have heard! I told them that we would have an “alphabet party” to celebrate. (Something simple such as mini muffins for snack, and a classroom game.)
We will also honor Mary, our blessed mother, in various ways this month. The pre-k teachers do a beautiful job teaching religion to your children in the afternoons, and I will reinforce what they are teaching as best I can.
Science Friday will involve building small structures using craft sticks and testing their strength in various ways.
Have a wonderful week!
