Thank you to Tamy & family who marched with us in the Holbrook Chamber of Commerce Memorial Day Parade along with Ms. Joyce, Miss Fabi, Miss Miranda & Mr. Ben. It was a great day for a parade & the brief service at the Alex DiGuardia Memorial on Grundy Avenue was lovely. We saw many past preschool friends along the parade route such as Brianna, Sarah, Caitlin & Amelia along with their families. It’s such a wonderful feeling when the community comes together as my mission for our preschool has always been to promote family & community. It takes a village to raise our children & we are all in this together!
The final countdown has begun. June is here & we are in the home stretch of the school year. I must say, this school year flew by! We are now busy practicing our songs for our Moving Up Celebration & continue to work on our super secret Father’s Day projects. You can find our FUDGE Celebration information under “Important Dates” in this newsletter. We are also creating beautiful flowers to decorate our classroom. The sand table has been transformed from tractors, farm animals & rakes/shovels to bugs, bugs, bugs! In the words of Annaliese, “These are nasty creatures!”
On Tuesday we celebrated Tyler’s 4th birthday with yummy munchkins. Ty also sent home bubbles for all of his friends to enjoy. Thank you to Tyler’s family for bringing in the goodies to help us celebrate! Happy 4th Birthday, Tyler!
On another note, Annaliese told us, “I was so cute in mommy’s tummy.”
