May has arrived! Happy Mother's Day to all of you wonderful moms, grandmas and care-takers. Thank you for sharing your precious children with us!
It is hard to believe how quickly the year has flown by; our classrooms are fully immersed in the learning process and concentration is just as focused as ever. This month all three classrooms will begin working outdoors in the garden area located just west of our school, enjoy all the benefits of the outdoor classroom and finish up lessons for the year.
Please send your child to school with sunscreen applied; we will touch up during the mid-day outside time. We advise you to pack a hat if your child will wear one. Also keep in mind that we spend a good deal of time outdoors working with water, soil and other materials that could potentially stain or soil clothing, an extra set of clothes is encouraged. Please guide your child into choosing clothing they don't mind getting "messy".
Fall Registration Update: Friday May 15th--8am-3pm at Children's House-This is the day to come in and fill out your child's Fall Enrollment Packet, CPP or Head Start Applications if applicable, ASQ (Development Screening), provide copies of required records, etc. If you have not filled out a registration form for Fall, I encourage you to do so immediately. We are looking at a full house next school year.
Many thanks to PTO (Stacey Weyand family, Trena Murphy, and Cari & Sarah Spoonemore) for all the behind the scenes work you did for Teacher Appreciation Week! What a wonderful surprise the staff received this morning when we entered the building. The staff were all tickled and have been admiring the quotes and stylish coloring pages from our young friends. Your (PTO & All Children's House Families) support filled up our cups and we are ready to finish out the year STRONG!
Speaking of staff, Debbie Effert our Campus Assistant will be out for the remainder of the school year; she is having knee surgery that will require several weeks of recovery. Gabbi Mischke & Toni Lard will finish out the year with us and assume Debbie's role alternately. Good Luck Debbie, well wishes for a speedy recovery!
