End of Year
May Nature Club
For our May Nature Club event, we'd like to invite you to school to help us work in our OWLS butterfly garden. The garden needs some serious attention! I will have annual and perennial flowers - both host and nectar - to plant ... but first we need to weed. Bring your garden gloves, spades and a six pack of flowers to plant in the garden! Bring a picnic and we will have lunch after gardening.

Show and Tell
Hellos and Goodbyes
May is a sad month, when we say goodbye to several friends leaving for the summer:
Evan Keeler, Shane, Anna, Hadley and Meyers. We will miss you! Have a wonderful summer and an amazing first year of school!
We will also be welcoming new families to the program:
Simon joined our Tuesday/Thursday morning class in March!
Karson joined our Friday morning class in April!
Eknoor joined our M/W pm and Friday am class in April!
Schaefer and Sloane will be joining Friday mornings on May 20th!
Beatrice will join the Tuesday/Thursday morning class on May 10th!
Thank you for all of your donations of recycled materials. The children have been very creative using the materials over the past few weeks! We will continue to accept donations of small items, but are running short on room for boxes and larger materials. Please hold off on bringing in larger items for the time being. We will let you know when we are ready for more!
We can use more donations of broken appliances! The children LOVE the take-apart station, but we need more items to take apart. If you have any items, please let us know. Don't forget to look for items at garage sales!
We have hired Miss Amanda McGarry to work at the preschool this summer. Amanda works with Miss Katherine at the karate school. Amanda will work on park days beginning at the end of May. She may also step in to help on school days if needed. She is very excited to join Natureplay!
Miss Laura will be returning this summer to work in the summer camp. You may occasionally see her in the preschool as well. We are thrilled to have her back to help this year.
