Picture Day
Picture day is for everyone that wants pictures taken, including our graduates! There will be an opportunity for individual and group pictures. When proofs are ready, you will be able to view and purchase your favorites! Of course, you have no obligation to buy pictures. Please check your school and/or Facebook for your child’s picture day.

April 11-15 Week of the Young Child
This week is designed to focus attention on the long-lasting impact that young children’s environments and social experiences have on their well-being and ability to learn. It is a call to make the critical early years the best that they can be for all children. Friday is Parent Appreciation Day to celebrate all you do for young children. It is also our Family Breakfast, when we will be serving breakfast for you and your child. We look forward to seeing you!

April 11-15 – Our letter of the week is U-Unicorn, on my head I have a horn!

Make believe is a difficult concept at this age, particularly since many children spend a substantial amount of time watching TV. On Monday, we will introduce the letter: long “U”. Tuesday is Opposites Day: Real and Pretend. Wednesday we will be reading and doing activities related to the book The Wizard, the Fairy & the Magic Chicken. Thursday is our monthly luncheon. This month’s theme is the Royal Family Luncheon. Sign-ups will be posted for you to be able to contribute something. No lunch boxes! Friday is our Family Breakfast and PJ Day!

Friday we will be doing activities to learn about and show appreciation of our planet as we celebrate Earth Day.

We will also be learning about vegetables this week. Monday we will be talking about the letter “V”. Tuesday we will be focusing on the number 9, our number of the month.
