It's Summertime!!!! :)

Hey guys! It's officially warmer weather time! Please make sure your child has sunscreen if your not wanting to use our universal. Your child also needs a water bottle with no straw and that has the mouthpiece covered. Please make sure they have a swimsuit and water shoes in their cubby as well as extra clothes. Thanks! :)

In the Classroom!

For July, the 2's are looking forward to learning about our body from our heads to our shoulders to knees and toes. Mr potato head will be our special friend to help us with our learning. We also plan to talk about plants and the wonderful weather of summer. The Scout's are going to continue to work on identifying our feelings.

The Parent's Spotlight

Thank you!!!

  • Thank you to all the parents for donations towards Graduation!! We had an awesome turn out!

  • Remember there is a suggestion box in the lobby, and we love to hear about ideas to enhance the learning environment for your children.

Would you like to donate?

We could use:

  • Clear clean plastic jars with lid (ie mayonnaise)
  • Is there ever a time when you say to yourself, " I wonder if The Tot Spot would want this"? We could use it in so many ways. You may have babies, but the whole school is yours. Everything can turn into a sensory activity or learning experience. So, before you throw out your junk, ask your teacher if it could be used
