Spring certainly came in like a lion this week! So much for March going out like a lamb. It was a short week between early dismissal on Wednesday & the snow day on Thursday. However, we managed to almost complete our blue/yellow/green projects as well as read a few spring books.
Please note, although we typically follow the Sachem School District calendar, we will NOT have school on Friday, April 6. Many families already have plans for spring break. Instead, we will have our “Moving Up Celebration” on Friday, June 22 at 10:00 a.m. This will be a combined celebration with both the morning & afternoon classes. We have a small afternoon class on most days & a combined celebration will allow all friends to “move up” together. This will also allow us to make up our snow day. Additionally, we will have school on Friday, May 25.
This week we welcomed our new friend Vincent to our MWF afternoon class. We are excited to have him join us in the afternoons.
Creative Kids will be marching in the Holbrook Chamber of Commerce Memorial Day Parade. We invite all families, both past & present to join us. The parade will be held on Monday, May 28, 2018 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. We will assemble at 10:30 a.m. at the Holbrook Plaza on Main Street and will march south along Main Street to the corner of Furrows Road, west on Furrows Road to Grundy Avenue, and then south on Grundy Avenue to the Holbrook Vietnam Monument on the corner of Grundy and Terry Road where there will be a brief remembrance ceremony. The parade is approximately 1.15 miles and takes about 25-30 minutes. The ceremony begins at approximately 11:30 a.m. We hope everyone will join us. A permission slip will be sent home soon.
