From the Principal’s Office
Well, spring showed up for a few days and then winter decided it wasn’t done, so we’ll see what happens next. Either way enjoy the days with family and friends!
Lifetouch Portraits will be here to take our spring school pictures on Monday April 24th and Tuesday April 25th. On Monday, all Infant and Pre-K photos will be taken. All students with siblings at our school will have their individual and sibling photos taken Monday, also. On Tuesday, Toddler One, Toddler Two, Beginner and Intermediate students will have their pictures taken. If your child(ren) will not be in attendance on their scheduled picture day, they will have their pictures taken on the opposite day. If your child(ren) does not attend on Monday or Tuesday, please stop by the office to speak with Robyn, Lauren, or Donna about making arrangements.
Please keep in mind that the safest shoes for children to wear at school are tennis shoes. Sandals, open-toe and slick-soled shoes may not be worn to school. This policy is stated on page 12 of our Parent Handbook under the Personal Belongings/Clothing section. With summer coming please do not allow children to wear flip-flops or open-toed sandals to school. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but our main objective is to protect the children.
Earth Day Festivities
To celebrate Earth Day each class will pick a special project to create with donated recyclables. We will place bins in the lobby specifying what items each class needs in order to complete their projects. We will also do some special gardening to enjoy and learn more about nature.

* Please make sure that you are signing your child in every morning and out every evening. Thank you for your consistency with signing the book!
* Parking Lot Safety – Remember to drive slowly and cautiously through our parking lots. There are several small children and their families in the parking lot throughout the day and we want to be sure that everyone is safe! In addition, please do not leave children in the car unattended. It is also important that you do not leave your car running while in our school.
