It’s that time of year again! We painted our 2017-2018 school year ceiling tile, then stamped it with our hand prints. Mr. Ben will hang it up for us next to the ceiling tiles from the past few years.
After reading numerous Father’s Day books, we spoke about our dads/grandpas & why we love them.
Thank you to all of our exceptional male figures who joined us for our FUDGE celebration! We hope you enjoyed spending time with your child in our classroom.

Libraries Rock: By now everyone should have received the 2018 Summer Reading Challenge brochure sent home in backpacks this past week. I hope you will take advantage of this program during the summer sponsored by Assemblyman Doug Smith (whose office happens to be located above our preschool) to read with your child & obtain a Reading Certificate for your child’s scrapbook! I still have the certificates my children earned every summer when they were little. I have plenty of extra brochures if you would like more for siblings at home. Just ask!
2018-2019 SCHOOL YEAR UPDATE: We are now full to capacity every morning. We still have a few openings in our afternoon class at this time. There is a waiting list for the morning session. We also still have a few more openings for Summer Camp 2018.

“It must not be forgotten that the basic law of children’s creativity is that its value lies not in its results, not in the product of creation, but in the process itself. It is not important what children create, but that they do create, that they exercise and implement their creative imagination.” (Vygotsky)
Happy Father’s Day to all of our dads, grandpas, uncles & exceptional male figures! Wishing you all a beautiful weekend!
