πŸŒ‘οΈβ„οΈβ„οΈβ„οΈβ„οΈ Baby It's Cold Outside!

Bundle Up - The cold weather is upon us and recess remains outdoors unless it is inclement weather. Students need to wear appropriate clothing to school (no shorts) including winter coats, hats, gloves/mittens. Dress in layers. Some of the new fabrics for cold weather give you the warmth of layers without all the bulk. If your child needs a winter coat, contact your school nurse for assistance.

Dressing for the weather also ensures students stay warm in the event of a fire drill.

Waterproof kids’ skin – Children have soft delicate skin and it is important to use moisturizers or Vaseline and wear mittens when playing outside. Humidifiers help replace moisture in the air for kids who have a tendency to get nosebleeds. Don’t forget the sunscreen, sunburns occur even in winter.

Student Classroom Needs:
Items Students Need (teachers will reach out for any other classroom requests)

The RGPG works to enhance our preschool community through social events and
volunteerism. Last year, we had a number of well attended events, which allowed
students and parents from all classrooms to meet, interact, and have fun.
Additionally, we were able to host clothing and food drives and provide two teacher
appreciation events.
