A Reminder about Cultural Fest

We want to encourage all families to attend this Saturday from 3-6pm! Please see Cari’s previous email for all the details. There are also a few slots in need of volunteers - both for the P2 mask making table and other event support. And there are some great raffle prizes —Contemporary Membership and a Family Pass to the Thinkery — with tickets that can be bought in advance at the office.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

Community Building

To help the Phoenix Nest enhance our community outside of the classroom, we are helping set up monthly playdates! Our goal is to bring everybody together in a fun environment to get to know kids, parents and families! We hope to have these monthly at different places and times.

A few upcoming dates over the next three months to add to calendars:

  • Saturday, December 13 at 11:30am: Join the Class for a picnic lunch at Laguna Gloria and Second Saturday Gingerbread Villas activity. The amphitheater at Laguna Gloria is a fantastic picnic spot where kids can run and have fun. If families want, we can participate in The Contemporary’s Second Saturday fun build your own Gingerbread Villas (cost for activity is $10).

  • Friday, January 9 at 5pm: Dinner (and happy hour) at Doc’s Backyard. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and the kids can play on the playground while enjoying dinner together. Doc’s on Brodie Lane in Sunset Valley.

  • Saturday, February 14 at 11:30am: Share a little Valentine’s Day love with a picnic lunch, playdate and fun craft project at Del Curto Park.

Other ideas we are considering for future dates include Capitol picnic lunch and tour and Helping Hands kid volunteer activity or park cleanup days. Please let Cari or me know if you have ideas or thoughts about future playdates!
