April

Dear Parents,

Spring is here! We’re so happy to be able to get outside again. I want to say thank you to all the families that came out for our 4 th Annual Children’s Art Show on March 3 rd . 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. It seems like just yesterday we were putting on our Halloween costumes. And here we are in April already. What’s happening in April? This week the teachers are reading books on Passover such as The Great Matzoh Hunt and Sammy Spider’s Passover Shapes and we’ve been enjoying some matzoh crackers. We’ll also be celebrating Easter this week by dyeing eggs, reading some great books, and having classroom parties. The week of April 10 th Creative Playtime will be closed for spring break returning on Tuesday April 18 th . Our Parent/Teacher conferences will begin this month with the 4’s starting first on April 20 th (school will be in session for all conferences; look for sign-up forms on the bulletin boards outside each classroom.

Our Earth Day celebrations will take place this month on April 27 th and 28 th and with that I’m very happy to announce that our school community garden will also be happening. Pastor Stephanie has been wonderful and has ordered us a number of raised beds which will be placed alongside our parking lot by the picnic tables. The children will be involved in the gardening process and any parents who would like to help out, we’d be very happy to have you. We’d love some ideas on what to plant. I’ll keep you posted once the beds arrive.

Camp registration is underway and filling up so please let me know if you’d like a spot. It will run a bit longer this year; 8 weeks for the children entering the 3’s and 10 weeks for those children in the 4’s and those entering the 4’s. If you need a camp form, just let me know. I just want to say a special congratulations to our DramaBees for their wonderful performance of “Peter Pan.” What a wonderful job they did and we’re so proud of them. They’re already busy at work on their next show “Annie” and we can’t wait to see it. I’m hearing through the grapevine that it’s looking very good for “The Wizard of Oz” for the fall.

With the arrival of spring comes another very special event; our annual fundraiser. This one promises to be extra special with our new venue; Mulino’s at Lake Isle and a wonderful theme- Cinco de Mayo. We’re so excited and our fundraising committee has been working so very hard on putting it all together. They even arranged a fabulous Bingo Night recently to kick off our fundraising season. Thank you to all the moms who came out and for all the terrific donated prizes. Bingo Night raised over $800. We know this is only a prelude to another amazing night as we celebrate Cinco de Mayo. So please come out and support the school. Enjoy some delicious tacos and quesadillas along with some yummy margaritas and the music from our talented DJ. And it’s more than likely you’ll go home with a great prize (money from the fundraiser helps with our music program, Gym-on- Wheels, Cross-Fit programs as well as purchasing needed equipment and furniture). Thanks so much for soliciting donations…we couldn’t do it without you.
