Got pennies?

A penny building set was recently donated to the Pre-K 2 classroom. Unfortunately, at the moment we only have about 40 pennies to build with. If you have any laying around the house you'd like to donate please leave them in the office on Jamilee's desk. Thanks!

I truly believe that Little Angles has such a great staff because we all have a passion for the job that we do. Working with kids brings many joys and a few challenges along the way. We would like to give the families and teachers at LALC an easy way to encourage a teacher with a compliment. Located on the bulletin board in the hallway off the lobby is a giant cookie jar. Take a moment to jot down a compliment for a teacher and slip it into the jar. These will be read at the monthly staff meeting and a prize will go to the teacher with the most as well the best compliment.

Hawkeye Kids Camp

Last March, Little Angels put on a spring break camp for school-age children at the Field House that got rave reviews from kids and parents alike. Jamilee Xiong will be directing the program again this year and would like to personally invite all U of I faculty, staff and students with children K-5th grade in the Little Angels family to register. More details about the spring break camp are to following in the coming months.
