 Parents of the twos,

     This year should be really fun and exciting. During the summer all the rooms have been painted, some new toys were bought, and I rearranged the room to give it a much better feel of openness  and less clutter. The children will have about two to four classes, maybe more or less depending on the children, to get adjusted before we start a complete routine. With twos each day is a new adventure. 

     So let me tell you a little about myself. This is my tenth year of being a preschool teacher here at Richland Baptist Church Preschool (RBCP). I started as a two year old assistant but that Spring became the actual teacher. Two years ago I became also the assistant teacher with the threes. I am also the Children's Minister here at RBCP. I have two grown sons and a daughter-in-law. they all live in this area. I have lived in the Hartwood all my life.

     The way I have plan each month starting in September will be for the children to adjust to being away from parents, enjoy their new friends, learn how to follow rules and listen to the teachers and above all have fun. We will eventually start having circle time, craft time, learn basic concepts each month like colors, numbers and shapes. The children will have specials (music and PE) outside of our classroom with the special's teacher, however myself and/or my assistant (Angela Powers) will stay with them and help the special's teacher. 

     There will be special days throughout the year that your child and parents or grandparents will be able to participate in together. Like fieldtrips, Thanksgiving Feast, Christmas Play, Special Time with Dad, Mother's Day, Grandparents day etc. Please parents plan for someone to come and celebrate these special times with your child. Also in the classroom, during snack time we will celebrate each child's birthday on or around his or her special day. Parents are asked to bring a special treat on the day of or nearest to the child's birthday, I will remind you and we will set the day best for you and my schedule.

If you have any concerns, questions or suggestions feel free to email or text me. Also please let me know as soon as possible if your child will not be coming to school on certain days, like if you are going on vacation or when your child is sick. Email: kraussharlene@yahoo.com  and cell phone number is 540-226-8610.

I am truly looking to meeting, teaching and having fun with your child this year. 

In Christ Love,

Sharlene
