April 2018

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 9th . 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. In March we celebrated Passover with matzo crackers and haroset followed by Easter and dyeing eggs. And here we are in April already. Our Parent/Teacher conferences will begin this month with the 4’s starting first on April 17 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 26th and 27th . All the children will be doing some planting. The Nature of Things will also be visiting on Tuesday, April 24th and Friday April 27th bringing with them an assortment of wonderful little animals.

Camp registration is underway and filling up so please let me know if you’d like a spot. It will again 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 “Seussical” What a wonderful job they did and we’re so proud of them. They’ll soon be busy at work on their next show “Willy Wonka” and we can’t wait to see it.

With the arrival of spring comes another very special event; our annual fundraiser. This one promises to be just as special and, again, will take place at Mulino’s at Lake Isle and with a wonderful theme; A Taste of Italy. It will take place on Friday, May 11th . The fundraising committee will be contacting you soon with all the details. Please come out and support the school. Enjoy some delicious Italian food along unlimited wine & beer. 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, Spanish programs as well as purchasing needed equipment and furniture). Thanks so much for soliciting donations…we couldn’t do it without you.

Upcoming Classroom Events:

Celebrating Cinco de Mayo- May 3rd and 4th

Mother’s Day Teas- May 10th and 11th

Celebrating Japanese Children’s Day- May 16th and 17th

Sincerely,

Gigi Aronoff
