Calling all parents! I need your help! Picture for a moment, 22 kids getting ready for recess....snow pants, boots, coats, hats, and mittens....yikes! Preparing to go out into the cold and coming back in from the cold is quite chaotic. Getting all buttoned, zipped, and tied can be a chore. However, if kids practice these skills at home, they become much faster!
Please work at home on helping your child learn how to dress and undress for the winter weather independently. Being a parent myself, I understand the temptation to hurry things along and do everything for your son or daughter. The problem with this is that at school, they are expected to be able to get ready for recess without much help.
If your child would like to play in the snow, they have to wear 5 things: coat, snow pants, boots, hat, and mittens/gloves. If they are lacking something, they will need to stay on the hard surface.
One last thing....please label each item with your child's name or initials to help us identify the owners of lost things.
Thanks so much for your assistance! Happy Winter!
