News and Notes: February 2019

The themes of the month were Friendship, Valentine’s Day; these themes encouraged the children to think about who is important to them in their lives. Later in the month, children could be heard imitating the many sounds of the Rain forest as the teachers presented this as a theme.

On the 12th, we were visited by Pat and a rabbit and turtle from Drumlin Farm. The children learned some differences between wild and domestic animals.

On Valentine’s Day and the day before, the children celebrated by passing cards, and eating special snacks.

Picture days were on the 25th and 26th. Michael does a great job with the children!

The snow mounds in the back parking lot have made great space for play until the playground is accessible again! The playground has been closed because the snow melt and cold temperatures have created a thick layer of ice!

The themes in March will include Space and Nursery Rhymes. We will be visited by a The Bubble Man on March 18th. More information is below.

Friday night, March 8, will be our annual Movie Night! Join us at 5:30 for pizza (see sign up sheet on sign in table, so we know how much to order– $3 per person). You may come in your PJs and please bring a blanket to sit on. The movie shown will be, “The Wiggles: Hoop Dee Doo,” which will begin at 5:45 PM and runs 55 minutes.

Our 3 day program is almost full and there are some 2 day openings for next year. Please send your friends and family our way!

Three dates to save!!
Friday March 8: Movie Night as described above.
Monday, March 18: The Bubble Man here at 10:45. If you have a two day or Tues/Thurs/Fri child who would
like to attend one of the shows, you are welcome. We just ask that a caregiver remain with the child for
the duration of the program.
Monday, March 25: Annual PAL all day workshop for staff. The school is closed so we can attend this
valuable workshop. This closing has been accounted for in tuition and lunch and extended day
payments.
