How can it be that another year has come and gone?!  Where does the time go?  It seems like just yesterday that we were busy getting to know your children’s individual personalities and discovering all the funny little idiosyncrasies that set them apart from their peers. The fun thing is, while we teachers work so hard at this, your children have learned about each other effortlessly –  They are intuitive, observant and nothing passes them by!  They know each other’s likes and dislikes, what makes them sad, what makes them happy.  Just like in a family, each classroom of children is learning the important lesson that we’re all a little different but we all need to get along.  They are learning the fine arts of negotiation, cooperation, sensitivity and patience.  Your children are growing into really great little people and we love watching it happen year after year!
Graduations and Celebrations are just around the corner – exciting stuff!  So be sure to read the dates and times listed above for your child’s event!  If your child will be unable to attend their graduation/celebration, please let their teachers know.
We’re also getting geared up for some summer camp fun!  Be sure to return your completed camp registration form no later than May 3rd for guaranteed days.
Nice weather is finally returning, so please remember to apply sunscreen as necessary before coming to school.
To avoid an accounting nightmare in June, the May/June statement you recently received is for May AND June tuition – both due the beginning of May.  May drop in will be billed at the end of May.
We look forward to seeing all of you at the Growing Tree Family Picnic on Wednesday,  May 22 from 5-7. Picnic tables will be set up or bring your blanket to stretch out on our lawn.   Be sure to bring the whole family! Let’s celebrate the end of the year with some good food and even better company!
