Announcements and Events

May

May 2 – 6 This week we will be preparing for Mother’s Day by reading stories about Mom and making something special for our Mom.

May 9 – 13  Y is for Yo-yo and Z is for Zoo.  We will finish off our alphabet and do some reviewing of the letters.  We have done a few activities over the last couple of weeks that were meant to help the children to recognize the different letters in their names.  Continue to teach your child by asking them to identify letters in print such as on signs or mail.   

May 16-20 Numbers.  This week we will be reviewing the numbers 1 – 9 with the children writing the numbers and counting.  We will also be doing some simple math.

May 23 – 27 Colors and Shapes.  This week we will be practicing to identify and match basic colors and shapes.  We will also be doing activities to recognize colors and shapes in the environment.

May 31 – June 3 Graduation.  The center is closed on Monday, May 30th for Memorial Day.  On Thursday, June 2nd the Discovery Center will be holding a graduation ceremony at 7:00pm for the children that will be entering Laker Elementary school in the fall.  If your child is graduating they will receive a letter with more information.  This week we will also be talking about what happens in Kindergarten. 

June 6 – 10 Summer Fun.  This will be our final week of preschool before our summer program begins.  Weather permitting we might have a yearend picnic at the beach.  I will make plans and decide on a date as things get closer. 

Friday, May 6th will be Cindy’s last day at the center.  She is scheduled to retire.  She has promised to come back and visit us.  Bailey will be taking over the opening of the center for the summer months and will be working with the preschool children.

Attached to your newsletter is a summer schedule form.  This summer we are requesting that all children infant through preschool attend at least one day a week to maintain their spot at the center.  School age children may pay a $50 holding fee to keep their spot, but are welcome to attend through the summer months.  More information will be available about summer activities once we know what enrollment will be.
