We have noticed a few tiny plants peaking cautiously out in the garden beds on our weekly walks around the school. Our friends are growing, too!

Happy Spring! I love Winter and what it has to offer but I’m totally excited for all the wonderful outdoor excursions my toddler friends will enjoy. We will be spending a lot of time outside which means it is time to send in sunblock, rain coats, and rain boots. We also enjoy lunches outside and take long walks along our gardens.

Please remember to send extra clothes weekly. “The most memorable days usually...

As the days hopefully get warmer we will begin to eat our snack and/or lunches outside as often as we can. We have beautifully made toddler sized picnic tables that I’m excited to bring out of storage. For the majority of March, our food prep work was focusing on “spreading.” Entering April we are concentrating on chopping and slicing. Please try to include your child in...

Dear Parents, It has been a wonderful year so far! I have so enjoyed working with all of your children.  They are blossoming before our eyes and it is a joy to observe! Our Kindergarten students are making their final preparations as they get ready to venture into the world of elementary.  They have begun visiting our lower elementary program with Miss Lori and her fabulous team of students.  These remarkable K’s are all reading very well, many of which at 1st and 2nd grade levels.  This means they have entered fluency, can follow a story line and have strong comprehension and reading...
