A Note From Our Principal
We hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend! As we move into June and continue our distance learning program, we are planning a lot of fun virtual events that we can do “together” this month. We hope you can join in! If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.
Health and Safety Measures
The health and safety of our children and families is always our highest priority. To mitigate the risks of COVID-19 while children are in our care, we have adopted additional health and safety measures based on CDC guidelines, state and local regulations, and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Whenever we can reopen, procedures are outlined on our school website.
Distance Learning Survey
As you know, during this difficult health crisis we have been offering our distance learning program to enrolled families as a way to continue students’ educational progress and keep them in contact with friends and familiar faces from school. The distance learning program is very new, and we want to make continuous improvements to better meet your and your child’s needs. To that end, if your child at any point participated in distance learning, you should have received an email inviting you to participate in a brief survey. We would really appreciate your feedback!

Fun & Messy Activities to Do Outside This Summer
Take learning outdoors this summer with your child’s favorite messy items! Bubbles, paint and shaving cream can provide multi-sensory experiences that are fun and engaging. Below are four activities to try together this month.
- Water Balloon Paint
Mix ¾ water and ¼ washable paint in a squeeze bottle. Fill water balloons with the paint mixture. Place an old white bed sheet on your lawn or driveway. Encourage your child to pop the balloons by jumping up and down on them. He’ll love seeing the paint splatter.
- Shaving Cream Slip-n-Slide
Secure a large tarp on a soft area of grass in your yard. Provide your child with shaving cream and buckets of water and ask him to cover the tarp. If you have multiple children, encourage them to practice taking turns.
- Spray Bottle Art
Fasten a piece of paper to an easel, tree trunk, or other vertical surface outside. Fill spray bottles with watercolor paint and water. Encourage your child to spray fast, slow, left, and right. He’ll practice fine motor skills while also developing his creativity.
- Outdoor Bubble Bath
Fill a kiddie pool with water, bubble bath solution, small cups, funnels, and bath toys. Encourage your child to hop in the pool and explore. Conduct a sink vs. float experiment, practice scooping and dumping, or count all the items in the water.
