May Day! May Day! Summer up ahead! No, it is not a distress call but merely a warning to let you know that the end of school is just around the corner. We can hardly believe that the end is near and this month is a mixture of excitement and melancholy. Everyone is looking forward to the end of the school year and the start of a fun-filled summer but we are also looking back fondly on a school year filled with magic and discovery. Our students have grown so much right before our eyes and we are so proud of them all. We are excited for all their achievements and know they will do a great job next year.   HOWEVER, we will miss them greatly -- they have been a wonderful class!!


                To celebrate all the fun we have had in preschool this year, the theme for May is Dinosaurs We’ve packed our calendar with activities to tickle our funny bones and spark our imaginations. It is a perfect way to wrap up our year and jump into summer


                Since this will be a busy time with lots of special days, here is a handy guide with important dates and facts to keep in mind.


  • Friday, May 10th is the day we will honor the taxi driver, cook, nurse, story reader, hug giver, problem solver, etc. also known as MOM. Please plan to join us on this day to allow your child a chance to thank you for all the jobs that you perform. If you are unable to come on this day, please consider sending a grandmother, godmother or aunt to represent you. Plan to arrive at 9:15 AM and we will be finished at 10:00 AM.



  • Wednesday, May 22nd, is our class party. We are collecting $5.00 from each child. There will be an envelope on the cart for you to put the money in and then cross off your child’s name. The money is going towards pizza, drinks, popsicles, and prizes for the games. Fun should be had by all.



  • Friday, May 24th is a day to get wet. Please dress your child with this in mind. They can wear their swimsuit to school and bring a change of clothes for later. Don’t forget to bring a towel. Make sure that they wear shoes and have on plenty of sunscreen on. This will be a fun day with lots of fun activities. It is the last day of school for everyone .We have been invited to join in on all the activities. The party lasts until 11:30, but if you want to avoid the confusion of the last day, you might want to come at 11:00 to pick up your child. By then the children will be exhausted.


As we close this last newsletter , we would like to thank you for a great year. Have a wonderful summer and enjoy!
