May 2016 News and Calendar of Events

And the countdown begins! With only a month left of school, we are making the most of our time by celebrating Cinco de Mayo, spring, Mother’s Day, and more. We are very excited to show you all we’ve been working on this year at OPEN HOUSE (Friday, May 6th). Also, we can’t wait to play in the water at the End-of-Year picnic (May 21) and are looking forward to our Pre-K Graduation Ceremony (June 3). This month will definitely be fast and furious…so hang on for the ride!

In the News:

Moonlight Magic and Auction – Thank you to all of you who joined in the fun at Moonlight Magic and the dinner auction. Both events were amazing and we thank you for your participation.

Site Work Day – We had an amazing turn out at our Spring Site Work Day. Parents helped us deep clean the classrooms, fluff up the sand, and so much more! We love you parents!!!

May 6 – Open House @ 6:00 (6:30 for PCS) – 8:00 – MINIMUM DAY – This is a great event to see your child’s classroom and browse through other classrooms to see what is in store for your child down the road. You may also want to check out the baby chicks in kindergarten, the art fair in the auditorium, and the other fun going on across campus.

PRESCHOOL ART SHOW – Please visit the art fair in the auditorium during Open House to view our fabulous display of preschool art.

Preschool Promotion Ceremony June 2nd , 7:00 – Children and families in Rooms 1 & 2 are invited to our Preschool Promotion Ceremony in celebration of their upcoming move to Pre-K, TK or Kindergarten! This event will be held in the auditorium and is a time to honor their time at preschool with a presentation of songs, receiving certificates, and a light dessert social. Invitations to follow.

Family Picnic – May 21, 11:00 – 1:00 – We hope you will join us at our annual year end picnic! This event is held on the PCS FIELD and features water play, bouncy houses, crafts, and more. Bring a lunch or purchase one using the order form. See you there!

Birthday Celebrations at School: We love to celebrate your child’s special day. Please help us make this day special by following these simple guidelines:

  1. Schedule your child’s special day with your child’s teacher prior to the event
  2. Birthdays at school are “recognitions”, not parties; please keep them simple with one small treat per child
  3. Treats must be store bought
  4. We appreciate treats to be on the healthier side as we have numerous children to recognize throughout the year. This helps us support our Healthy Kids/Sugar Reduced policy. The idea of special recognition and attention is more important to most children than the treat itself.
