Early Childhood Center
Letter from the Principal
Well--it's been a cold walk into the building the last few weeks! Thank you for your patience and hard work helping get your students to class in the frigid cold.
As we head into March we hope the weather will begin warming up--but we are absolutely sure that things will be heating up in the BBEC/Sunnyside classrooms. Soon, we will have Spring Break and the School year will be over in a flash.
We hope that families enjoy the chance to celebrate Read Across America and Dr. Seuss Day. Our kids and staff love dressing up for these events. Never lose an opportunity to read your kids!
Please be aware of upcoming enrollment dates if your child is transitioning to Kindergarten next year. We have posted these on our FaceBook page, as well as through classroom announcements.
We know that the last three months of school will bring exciting changes for all of our students. As always, thank you for the privilege of working with your children!
