Small Group Activities:

 - First Day of Preschool Hat
 - First Letter in Your Name

The Dynamic Dinos have been working hard to earn "dinos"! When a teacher sees them doing the "just right thing", being a good friend, and following directions, they earn a dino!  Once they earn FIVE dinos, they get to pick a prize to take home.  Be on the lookout for prizes in your child's backpack!





Reminders
All must be nut free! 
Back to school night is October 10 at 6:30pm

Welcome!

Welcome!

Welcome to the Dynamic Dinos!

 Thank you for checking out the blog.  I am very excited for this school year to begin and am looking forward to meeting all of you.  My email is capruzzese@bpsk12.org if you have any questions before the first day of school or any time throughout the year you can always email me.  I will be sure to get back to you in a timely manner.

I will be updating this blog on a bi-weekly basis with the activities we are doing in the classroom You can use this blog to help discuss your child's day.  For the first couple of weeks we will be completing getting to know you activities and some informal assessments to see what skills your child has.

Open house is on Thursday September 7 from 11:00am - 11:30am.  At this time your child can get familiar with the classroom, their teachers, and their classmates.  I will also be discussing some information about pick up and drop off, communication between home and school, and the first day of school.  If you are unable to attend open house, please email me to let me know.

The first day of school is Monday September 11.

On the first day, please send in an extra change of clothes for your child to keep in their cubby.  Please also attach your child's backpack tag to their backpack that they will be receiving at open house.  This is so that everyone can identify what classroom your child belongs in if they are greeted or helped off the bus by another teacher.

Snacks cannot contain peanuts or tree nuts.  We are a nut sensitive facility since there are children with severe peanut allergies.  Please be sure to send in a nut free snack so that your child will have something to eat during snack time.
