Teachers will be available from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. to informally share further information about the school and answer any questions that may have come up following your child’s first few weeks.

Wednesday, May 7th or Thursday, May 8th

10:30 – 11:30

Calling all moms!  Please be sure you attend this special event.  Your child will be at your “beck and call” for part of the morning.  Bring your child at their regular time.  Then you return to enjoy tea and treats served to you by your child at 10:30.

Due to our limited space and the nature of this special celebration we can only accommodate enrolled preschoolers.  Siblings or other family members will not be able to attend.  We hope that you understand and if you can’t make it, we can talk about who might be able to come so your child feels they are a part of our Mother’s Day Tea.

See you then!

A preschoolers favorite holiday is just around the corner…HALLOWEEN!!!!  We will be celebrating at school on Tuesday, Oct. 30th and Wednesday, Oct. 31st.  Many young children are uncertain of and frightened by costumes, so we will celebrate with NO COSTUMES at school.  We DO celebrate with special games, activities, stories and a festive snack.

If you would like to contribute to our snack, please sign up on the bulletin board by the front door.  Cheese cut-outs, mini muffins, dried pumpkin seeds and fruit, etc. are fun treats.  If you choose a sweet treat, a small portion is best!

Thank you and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!
