Green Family Gab 5/30/16
Hello Green Family… This is always the hardest newsletter to write. The year has come to an end and Miss Gianna and I need to say goodbye to you all, some for the summer and some for longer. Every one of you and your children are an extended part of our family now! Please feel free to drop in anytime and say hello and grab a hug if we won’t see you next school year. We will miss you all and have felt very privileged that you have trusted us with your most precious little ones. Have a wonderful summer and be so proud of all the work each child has done this year. We will look forward to next year with many more discoveries and fun to come. Growth is a wonder to behold and your kiddos have done it. They are super stars!
A Huge Thanks to Teu, Toas’ mommy and Jenn, Leilas’ mommy for the wonderful Hawaiian Luau Day we had last Wednesday. The class absolutely loved learning about the Hawaiian Islands, Dance and Food! It was extra special that we could include all you parents who were able to come and join in on the fun and food as well. You two are awesome and this was an experience that will never be forgotten. We are definitely blessed, Thank-You!!
Thank-You to Elijah’s Grandpa and Grandma for the donation of the wonderful firetruck. The children LOVE it!
This week is the last week of school and are Celebrations are Thursday and Friday
Circle Of Friends Celebrations: Dear parents, our last days of preschool are minimum days, school is over after the celebrations. **Thursday, June 2 there is still Afternoon Enrichment for 5-Day students** We have our Circle of Friends Celebrations earlier in the day because of other local schools activities and the availability of parents to attend.
Thursday, June 2… Minimum day; no afternoon enrichment for Tuesday-Thursday Classes only. We will celebrate in our classroom at 11:00. There will be a few songs and then I will hand out the end of the year Folders and Photo Albums to the T & Thur students.
Friday, June 3… Minimum day; no afternoon enrichment – Preschool ends after celebrations. We will celebrate outside on the swing side of the playground with the Backpacker class at 10:30. I will hand out the end of the year Portfolios on Wednesday.
The month of May and the rest of the school year, we start our days OUTSIDE.
