Spring! A time for new beginnings, warm sunshine, puffy clouds and colorful kites. March is a wonderful month full of lots of expectations. The children look forward to the warmer weather and outside play while searching the skies for rainbows. Spring is a time of wonder and exploration with our focus on science. The children love the hands-on activities. This month also brings March Around the World and St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. Some of the classes will enjoy making a “Leprechaun” trap and searching for gold.
Thank you to those who took advantage of our Priority Registration offer and registered last month! We look forward to another year of success with your child.
Sincerely, Stephanie Gill/Principal
