A Note From Our Principal
Happy April! Now that spring has arrived, we’re looking forward to spending even more time exploring the outdoors. Taking advantage of the beautiful weather helps children learn and grow as they discover new things in their environment. This month we open our garden space with our annual Earth Day celebrations. I know classrooms are busy hatching live ladybugs and butterflies to release into the environment. We can’t wait to share these activities with your child.
On Wednesday, April 20th, our school will be celebrating Earth Day by releasing over 1,000 ladybugs into our garden. We are also encouraging your child to dress up as their “favorite garden insect” on our celebration day. We can’t wait to share photos of the fun with you.
Our enrolled parent survey closes April 15th. This survey provides the opportunity for you to give us feedback anonymously on our strengths and areas we can work on. Please let us know if you haven’t received it.
If you are interested in helping volunteer for Teacher Appreciation week, please reach out to Jamie to be added to a volunteer list. More information will be sent to those interested. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
