Welcome to March! Spring is almost here! As I write this, they are predicting 70 degree weather for the week, woo hoo! But I’m sure before we know it we will be complaining it’s too hot. We have so many activities planned for this month, “it’s Madness”.
Summer camp enrollments packets are out. Enroll by March 15th to save 10% off of the activity fee.
March is “Read Across America” and with it our Mystery Reader event. Please check with your child’s class if you would like to volunteer to come in and read to the class, they have all the details. Classes are also creating door decorations to showcase their favorite books and will dress like characters from these stories on March 10th. We will also “Go on a Bear Hunt” to act out another of our favorites stories.
Themes this month include March Madness, in honor of basketball playoffs, along with Nursery Rhymes and, of course, Spring. We are celebrating Irish-American heritage and Celtic/Irish Music, culminating with our St. Patty’s day events and Shamrock Shakes, yum.
On March 15th, children can come dressed in their favorite basketball teams’ shirt and we will have a basketball shootout on March 30th.
To celebrate Spring we will have a “Spring Fling” dance on March 22. Children are encouraged to dress in their finery. On the 24th, all classes will have an egg hunt outside on the playground. Parents are asked to sign up, for the goodies to stuff the eggs, on each class door. Also, check out the Spring Photo Flowers of the children which will be on display all throughout the hallways this month.
