May is here and with it comes the realization that our school year is coming to a close. It’s been a fun and busy year. We’re sad to see our 4’s moving on but we know they’ll do well in kindergarten and we look forward to camp and a fun summer season. Camp this year will begin on Monday, June 6th and run through Friday July 22nd. It will take place in the 3’s and 4’s classrooms and most of the teachers here at Creative Playtime will be working this summer at camp. If you haven’t yet signed up but still wish to, just let me know. You may sign up for as many weeks as you like for either 3 or 5 days a week (4’s are filled for weeks 1, 2, & 3). If you need a camp form, I have them in the office. Each week is a different theme and we’ll be welcoming weekly visits from our wonderful music teacher “Rob the Guitar Guy” and also from Coach Michelle from Gym-on-Wheels. We’ll also be visited by The Nature of Things, Mad Science, Happy Feet Soccer, Juggles the Magician.
I want to say thank you to all that came out for our 3rd Annual Children’s Art Show on March 4th. It was great to see everyone. The artwork was beautiful and the robots amazing. I hope you had a nice time.
As it does every year, the time has flown by. And here we are in April already. What’s happening in April? Earth Day takes place this month and we’ll be doing some planting to take home. We’ll also welcome visits from The Nature of Things who will be bringing an assortment of animals. Our caterpillars will be arriving soon and each classroom will be observing their amazing transformation. Then we’ll set them free.
Our spring Parent/Teacher conferences will be starting soon. Sign-up sheets will be posted outside of each classroom.
4’s: April 12th & 13th
3’s: April 19th & 20th
2’s: April 26th & 27th
**school will be in session on all parent/teacher conference days
Camp registration is underway and filling up so please let me know if you’d like a spot. Camp runs from June 6th-July 22nd (7 weeks) and you can choose 3 or 5 days a week to attend and as many weeks as you like. The price is discounted for 5 or more weeks. If you need a registration form, please let me know.
Our spring session of Yoga with Budding Buddhas, Dance and Violin with Scarsdale Strings, Soccer with Happy Feet Soccer, Drama with DramaBees, and Literacy with Stefanie Borg will be beginning soon. If you haven’t signed up but want to, please let me know as soon as possible (especially for Dance & Violin as I have to give Scarsdale Strings the number of children). Our winter DramaBee production of “Seussical the Musical” will be taking place this Friday, April 1st at 12:15pm upstairs in the church for anyone who’d like to come and watch. The next show they’ll be working on will be “Willy Wonka.”
Our annual fundraiser is fast approaching on Friday April 15th at Fogarty’s in Bronxville. It’s a really fun evening at a great place and I always look forward to it. A great deal of work goes into it and our fundraising committee has been working very hard to make it a great night. The money raised helps us with our music program as well as our Cross-Fit and Gym-on-Wheels programs. It also helps us to purchase new bikes and furniture when we need it. So please come out and support the school. I guarantee you’ll have fun and you could win a great prize. Speaking of prizes, I want to thank all of you for your wonderful donations. We couldn’t do it without you.
School pictures should be arriving soon and the class teachers will distribute them once they arrive. I can’t wait to see them.
