June, 2011 Newsletter
June is really here and we are full swing into our exciting end of the year activities! We all hope your children enjoyed “The Lizard Guys” last Wednesday. They all seemed enthralled and captivated by the gigantic turtle, lizard, frog, and boa constrictor!
We are busily preparing for our Closing (Nursery Class and non-graduating Pre-Kers) and Graduation Ceremonies on June 16th. The Nursery Class Closing Ceremony begins at 6:30 PM and the Pre K Graduation starts at 7:15 PM. Please be on time as we will be starting right away. For those of you who have attended in the past, you know what a treat you are in for as the kids march in, sing some songs, receive their certificates, and we all watch our year in a special photo montage as we mark the end of a fantastic year of learning and exploring. Graduation gowns and caps will be given ahead of time to those who are going on to Kindergarten so that you may iron them if necessary and take pictures at home. Please put the gown and cap on your child at the Library and return it to one of the teachers following the ceremony. Please also sign up to supply a part of our friendship fruit salad for that evening if you are able.
Over the next several weeks we will be having our Field Days, a carnival theme, learning all about watermelons, and having “Beach Days”. In honor of the Beach Days, please dress your child in a bathing suit, put suntan lotion on your child before school, and pack a towel as we will be getting wet on our “beach” next Wednesday, June 8th and Thursday, June 9th!
Friday Night Babysitting is on for next Friday, June 10th from 5:30-8:30 PM. Dr. Nicole Bonner is presenting “Raising Healthier Children” on Monday, June 6th at 7:00 PM. If you are interested, please RSVP for both or either of these events this week.
