June 2017 Calendar & Newsletter
Here we are beginning the first month of summer! The weather is getting hot and so are we…hot to polish off your child’s learning, in preparation for next year. We will be directing our efforts toward helping your child have fun experiences and develop critical learning skills. We hope that you will share the excitement with us by taking time each day to listen as your child shares his/her experiences with you.
We will also be talking about camping (and experiencing through our imaginations & hands-on activities). Monday we will be we will be talking about the letter “X” Tuesday we are exploring camping gear! Wednesday we are Goin’ on a Bear Hunt and we’re gonna catch a big one!

We will disguise our learning in these FUN themes! It is also our Family Breakfast & PJ Day, where you are invited to join us for free breakfast until 8:30. We look forward to sharing a homemade breakfast with you!

Father’s Day BBQ
Wednesday, June 14th, is our Father’s Day BBQ from 3-5:30 PM. This is a special time to celebrate the men in our lives. We welcome all dads (or other male relative or friend) to come and celebrate with us. If Dad is not able to attend, we will take a picture of your child to give to Dad.
We will also be exploring the important job bees have and their gift of honey. Tuesday we will be talking about bee hives. Wednesday we will be doing activities with honey, including tasting it! Thursday is opposite day: sweet/sour. Friday we will be focusing on number review.
Monday we will introduce the letter “Z”. Tuesday we will be talking about zoo animals. Everyone is encouraged to bring a stuffed animal to share. Wednesday we will have our X-Y-Z Luncheon. Everyone can wear stripes for Yipes Stripes! Day on Thursday. Friday we will explore zippers.
With summer now here, we all try to dress to best survive the hot weather. Clothing and footwear become skimpier. We ask for your help in keeping your child injury-free by dressing them in sneakers or sturdy sandals. Backless sandals and flip flops are particularly hazardous and should not be worn. We do a lot of running and climbing and your child’s feet need support. Thanks for your help!
There is not enough room in our refrigerator for your child’s lunchbox. We recommend blue ice to keep your child’s lunch cold.
All children can also use the protection of sunscreen. It’s a great idea to make it a part of your morning dressing routine. For a small fee, we will refresh your child’s sunscreen after nap.
Closed for Independence Day: Tuesday, July 4th
