On Wednesday, April 14 we will be having "Books and Breakfast" in each classroom. This is a time for you to come have some breakfast with your child and then read a book together. Breakfast will be available 7:00-9:00 AM in a buffet type setting. We will be providing continental breakfast items such as muffins, breads, fruits and coffee. We will also have some books for you to choose from, or you can bring a favorite book from home. We hope all of you can attend this event with your child.

Baskin Robbins

We will be walking to Baskin Robbins on the afternoon of Friday, April 16 to get a single scoop of ice cream. We would like to invite all families to join us on this field trip.

Immunization Update

When your child receives new immunizations, please bring those records in to the office. We must keep immunizations up to date on all children. Our records are checked yearly to make sure all children are current. Thank you for your help in this matter.

Kids Say the Darndest Things

A three year old was leaving early because she wasn't feeling well. As she left she said, "Miss Hannah! I have to go home because I'm having issues!"


At home one night a dad asked his three year old if he needed a spanking. He responded, "Will it be hard like Mommy?"


Miss Teresa was taking a boy to the bathroom to go potty. He turned and said to her, "I like your hair. It's pretty." She thanked him and said that was sweet. He then said, "I get a potty treat now." "After you go potty," she told him. He responded, "But, I said your hair is nice!"
