NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR

¡Gracias por un año maravilloso! Thank you for a wonderful year! Please mark June 26th on your calendars, the guides are planning a very special performance and we would love our students and the people that adore them to be there.


We are happy to announce our graduating students were accepted in excellent schools. Most of our pre-k students will be in dual language programs next year and we will be there to help all of our founding families every step of the way. We have learned that bilingualism takes a village!


The parent-social was a really fun event, a big cheer to Stav for her coordination efforts. We also look forward to seeing everyone at the family picnic. Fingers crossed we will be able to share some good news about the patio community project by then!


We also want to stay connected with the families that are moving. It has been a pleasure to get to know you and we are grateful for your trust. The little beings that make-up HOLA NYC are very special, we cherish them and know they will become world citizens one day.


May all of you be happy, may all of you be well! Happy summer!

NOTE FROM THE CLASSROOM

¡Hola familias!

During the month of May, we learned about farm animals through fieldtrips to the Art Farm in the City and our local parks. We also found some little critters like crickets, worms, ladybugs and beetles. The children were so brave handling and examining all of the animals! We also enjoyed exploring with a new art technique and creating decoupage vases for Mother’s Day.


A huge thank you to all of the parents who helped chaperone our special fieldtrip to the “farm” and to Jenny Rothauser (Owen’s mom) for her special presentation on gemstones. The children were in awe of the beauty of each stone, picking their favorite from the bunch.


For June’s theme, "Yo Soy Artista”, the children will stimulate their creative thinking by using various forms of expression. We have several artists who will visit our classroom throughout the month, sharing their special artistic talents through music, drama and various art media. If you, (or anyone you know) have any special artistic talents that you would like to share, we welcome you to come and visit our classroom!


As the school year comes to a close, we would like to extend our gratitude to all of the HOLA NYC families. Every day, we strive to provide a nurturing learning environment for your child to thrive in and we thank you for trusting us with that important task. It is a such an honor to be able to get to know all of the wonderful little human beings that step into the HOLA NYC classroom each day. This is just the beginning of their lifelong love of learning...



Con mucho cariño,
