A hundred years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in the bank…but the world may be a better place because I made a difference in the life of a child. Forest Witchcraft
This month we honor our mothers and our teachers. Without you we wouldn’t be who we are today. Thank you for your unconditional love and tender care.
National Screen Free Week: April 30-May 6. Turn off all your screens for a week. Can you to do it? Times have changed. We used to call this TV Turn Off Week. Now we have screens on everything. If you can’ t do it for a week, try it for an hour or two a night. You’ll be amazed what a difference it makes. There are lots of things to do that don’t involve screens and encourage family time.
Mommy’s Craft Week: Join us anytime May 7th – 11th 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. for your special Mommy & Me Craft Project. A project table will be set up in each classroom. Just sit down with your child and enjoy some special time at school. As always parents can also read a book, sing a song, tell us a story, bring in something to share etc.
Mommy’s Brunch: Mommies, Grandmas, big sisters… please join us for our annual Brunch just for Mommies on Friday, May 11th, our Mother’s Day Brunch will begin at 9:30 a.m. in the Infant Center, 10:00 in the Tiny Tots, 10:30 in the Toddler Center & 11:00 at the Preschool for singing, cute poems, mommy gifts & yummy treats!
Teacher Appreciation Week: May 7th – May 11th. Take advantage of this special week to do something special for our teachers. They deserve it – for all their hard work and dedication. We all know how important praise and recognition is for our children. Sometimes we forget how important it is for our teachers too. Let them know how much we all appreciate them. Praise a teacher Online! Praise a teacher on Facebook! Praise a teacher on Yelp! Send them a card, a gift, or simply say ‘thank you.’
A little gesture can make a huge difference. When parents take time to thank teachers, it makes both the parents and teachers feel good about working together. And when parents and teachers work together, student achievement soars! National PTA®
It’s also a great time to contact one of your teachers and tell them what they’ve done for you. Try it you’ll both feel good.
Share Your Pet Week: We will celebrate our Annual Pet Week May 14th-18th. You can bring and share your pet with your friends during the week of May 14th – 18th. Just arrange the day and time with your child’s teachers. (All pets must be very friendly. Pets that live in cages or bowls like hamsters, fish and lizards are welcome to stay for the day. Other pets like dogs and cats may come for short visits and can not be left at school. You can bring a picture of your pet to share instead.)

Sunscreen Time: Temperatures are rising and that means more sunscreen! It’s very important that children come to school wearing an SPF 30 or more on all exposed areas of the skin. We also recommend a hat. Extra sunscreen should be kept at school as well so teachers can re-apply when needed.
Change of Clothes: Please update your child’s change-of-clothes. It’s getting warmer outside, so please bring short sleeve shirts, shorts, extra socks, underwear, and shoes. Also, don’t forget your sunscreen. Please LABEL everything.
