Over Time Our Heavy Duty Milk Crates Have Broken And Been Discarded. Now Our Supply Is Running Low. If You Happen To Have Any Lying Around The Garage Or Workplace And Would Like To Donate Them, Or Know Where We Can Acquire Some, We Would Greatly Appreciate It. The Children LOVE To Build Forts And Structures With Them On The Playground.


We Will Be CLOSED April 27th For Staff Development.

Last Month…

We learned about Groundhog Day and had fun making shadows with our groundhog puppets. We talked about the famous groundhog Punxsutawney Phil and learned that he saw his shadow this year so that means six more weeks of winter!

We talked about friendship and Valentine’s Day. We had a great time at our Valentine’s party and we shared our fancy Valentine’s with each other. Thanks for bringing the goodies.

We learned about Chinese New Year. We learned how to say “Gung Hay Fat Choy” (May You Prosper). We learned that Dragons and the color red are very good luck. We had a cool dragon parade and practiced using chopsticks to pick up pom poms.

Last month we also had fun reading the story “Pinkalicious” and making some yummy pink cupcakes for snack.

This month we’ll talk about the Leprechaun and St. Patrick’s Day, celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday by making green eggs and ham, talk about Spring, celebrate Royal Wednesday, go on an Easter Egg Hunt, and conduct some cool science experiments.
