Willow Tree School

May Newsletter

May is the month where we begin to wrap up our official school year. We will be celebrating the many wonderful accomplishments of all students at Willow Tree at our annual graduation ceremony. Please see details below. This is the time of year when we bid farewell to many of our graduating students as they enjoy their last summer as preschoolers and prepare for the adventures of kindergarten. It is always a bittersweet, reflective time for all of us. We look forward to a festive and positive month of bonding and friendship.


For those students staying with us through the summer, we have some fun and exciting things planned to keep us engaged and excited about school. We'll have some fun field trips and beloved guests visit our program. Please bring a swim suit for your child so that we can enjoy lots of water drought-conscious water play.

Summer Schedules

Last week we distributed a request for upcoming vacation dates, desired summer schedules and new schedule requests for the fall. Thank you to those who have already returned those forms. Having this information early helps us prepare for teacher vacations, new enrollment and to help guarantee that current students have their preference of days, etc.


I realize that I inadvertently left last year's graduation date on the form, so I apologize for any confusion around graduation. Our graduation ceremony is scheduled for Friday, May 29th. Please see the link below for details.
