Dear Raccoon Parents or Guardians,
Hello! My name is Precious Apple Peel (really!). I come from a tropical Asian country called the Philippines. I love traveling, learning languages & cultures, eating different foods and meeting new people. I love arts and making crafts. When I watch television, I enjoy watching anime with my husband and daughter.
I absolutely love teaching and am so thrilled to have your child in my Raccoon class on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I am looking forward to learning with your child. We will spend our year in the Raccoon class learning our numbers and math concepts, letters and phonic sounds, the love of books, how to play with friends, creating and exploring with science and social studies. What an exciting year we will have together! I hope to meet you at our Fall Open House September 16th from 6:45-8:00 p.m. Please save the Date!
When you come to school, please know I will always greet your child with a smile and help them feel comfortable in our fun learning environment. See you soon!!
Precious Apple Peel
Dear Raccoon Parents,
Hello! My name is Melissa Horan. I will be teaching your child’s Raccoon pre-kindergarten class on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I love children and seeing them get excited about learning. My goal is to help each child in the class to understand the process of learning, and to be more self-reliant in that process. We will create individualized goals with you and your child so that they can choose where they want to be with various skills and thus be more accountable and interested in that goal. We will have many tasks throughout the day that will be supplemented with age-appropriate take home work.
During the morning we will have music time, learning centers, an activity based on a theme, and activities to teach letters and numbers and the love of reading. If you have any questions or specifics on what you would like your child to focus on, please bring them up to me and we can discuss how to incorporate them. My background is a degree in K-12 Music Education, so I look forward particularly to learning with and about music. I have been with Adventure time since February 2014 and have enjoyed the success my classes have felt in what they are able to accomplish, while learning to interact with their peers in healthy, fun ways.
There will be an Adventure Time Fall Open House on Tuesday, September 16th from 6:45-8:00 p.m. I hope your family can attend and we’ll have a chance to visit and your child can show you the classroom. I’m very excited to help your child learn in the Raccoon class and I hope we can make it the best possible experience for the growth of your child!
