Dear Parents,

ENJOY THE BEAUTY OF SPRING!

IMPORTANT DATE CHANGE:
 
Please note that the date of our Moving Up Ceremony has been moved to Tuesday, June 20th at 9:15

As we continue to develop good routines throughout our day, the children have been busy making many fabulous Easter projects.  Please enjoy the beautiful display of your child's crafts outside as well as inside our classroom when you visit us to take pictures on Pajama Day!

We would like to wish everyone a very Happy Easter!  Nursery is getting ready for their Easter egg hunt!  This is always a very fun and exciting event for the children!  I have read a wonderful story to the children, entitled: What is Easter?, by Michelle Adams.   Perhaps, you would like to share this story as well as others to reinforce the meaning of Easter!
