We have been having fun in room 5 both inside and out with different kinds of “snow”! We have explored snow and arctic animals inside and scooping/pouring flour-snow outside on the yard. The kids have really enjoyed all the different textures both soft and cold.
We were so excited to meet McGruff the Crime Dog today. Officer Hilda and McGruff explained what strangers are, who we should trust, how to stay safe if we trick-or-treat, plus how to safely ride our bikes. We even were able to take pictures with McGruff! The excitement didn’t stop there, however. After McGruff said goodbye we had a special visit from a Motorcycle Officer Meeks. The kids were able to get up close to check out his ride, ask him questions, and even pose for pictures. It was a fantastic visit!
A special thanks to the Pasadena Police Department for all of their hard work and for taking the time to be with us today.
Today we had Officer Hilda and Officer Meeks come and tell us about safety, meet McGruff and see the motorcycle! We learned about not taking anything from strangers.
The preschool participated in the Great Shakeout on Thursday, October 21st at 10:21am. Each classroom practiced Bunnies in the Hole, our duck and cover drill, and then exited their classrooms into the preschool parking lot. The children did a wonderful job listening and following through with all parts of the drill. Great job staying safe everyone!
We have been quite busy in Room 5! We have been painting, building, practicing letters, dancing, singing and so much more! Most of all we have been welcoming many friends into our class. 💜💙
On Monday, October 11th we had a fantastic visit from Pasadena Fire Station 36. They showed us how firefighters outfit themselves to fight fires and even how the truck sprays water! It was awesome! This was a lovely addition to the visit we had from Jeff Ragusa, a Glendale firefighter and dad from Rm 1, who showed us his firefighter gear on Friday, October 1st. With both visits, the firefighters focused on helping the children to understand that the don’t have to be afraid when they see a firefighter fully outfitted, they are here to help. The preschoolers loved having all of our firefighters and we are so grateful for their amazing work. Thanks guys, you are our heroes!
We are so excited to meet our new students this week! We are praying for each and every family for a safe and healthy year! See you Wednesday!
Blessings from the Room 5 teachers!

We had a blast in Room 5 last week! We played a lot outside both on the structure and in the sand/water! We ended our week with big bubbles with Mr. Yorlin!
This week we have been doing lots of planting 😁 we have planted two kinds of lettuce, cucumber, yellow squash, peas, beets, radish and sunflowers. We are excited to take care of our plants and watch them grow. Stay tuned for updates.
