Happy December

As we officially enter the winter season, we believe outdoor recess is an important and valuable part of each student’s day. Fresh air, exercise and time spent outside afford students a break from the structure of the classroom. Teachers agree that students perform best at school when they have an opportunity for outdoor play, so we try to get them out whenever possible.

A Time of Thanks

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I wanted to start this newsletter with a prayer of Thanksgiving that I first heard at my previous school. I loved it so much that I saved it and now share it every year in my Thanksgiving Newsletter:


Dear God,

Thank you for all your blessings and gifts to us. We thank you for the precious gift of family and friends, for...

Crazy Weather!

Wow! What crazy weather we’ve been having! This November has certainly felt more like December, with all the cold temperature and snow. Thank you for sending your child to school with appropriate outside attire! When snow is on the ground AND when the temperatures drop below freezing, we want the kids to be bundled up and safe.

  Quick note #1:...

Celebrating our Veterans

Thank you to everyone who came and helped us honor our veterans today! This past week the students discussed all of the ways that we can thank the men and women for their service. While we should be showing thanks everyday, Veteran’s Day is a great day for us to think creatively about how to give back to those who have protected our country.

  In addition ...

A Long Break followed by Halloween

I hope that everyone enjoyed the long fall break that we had in October. I didn’t write a newsletter for that week, as the week was so short. With that being said, we certainly had a lot of fun celebrating over the course of the short week. 

This past week the students had a BLAST at our Halloween party. Thank you so much to our two...

A Fun Week Followed by a Short Week

Just a reminder that this upcoming week will be a short one for QP, as we do not have school on Thursday or Friday. As a result, we will not have a newsletter for next week.

Also, we will be celebrating Halloween on Thursday, October 31. Kids should NOT come dressed in their costumes. We have a designated time for the kids to change ...

A Field Trip, Fairy Tales, and Overall Fun Week 

Thank you to the parent chaperones who joined us on our field trip. We had an incredible time at Cave of the Mounds.

While it may have been a rainy field trip day, we did get some beautiful weather one F...

A Cooler Week!

The students and teachers at QP were so appreciative for the change in weather! We certainly had a warm spell, so this “cooler” weather is a nice change of pace (plus, the mosquitoes have died down). It looks like Monday and Tuesday will be “warmer,” but the tail end of the upcoming week will be good, fall weather. Make sure to send your child with sweaters/jackets to school.
