From the Eagle's Nest!

Dear Families,

Thank you to everyone who participated in the All Star Dips fundraiser! A big congratulations goes to Zayden Effinger in Mrs. Thorson's class for selling 61 packets of All Star Dips! Wow!

We sold a total of 461 dips, and profited over $1400 for our PTO account. We appreciate your support! The monies will be used to assist with field trip and program costs.

Thank you!

Mrs. Nelson

Network will be at Washington ELC on Tuesday, March 10th and Wednesday, March 11th for our Spring Pictures!

All children will have pictures taken during their scheduled class time. Classroom teachers will be sending information home regarding which day your child will have their picture taken.

Since many of our students were not here when fall pictures were taken, whole class pictures will be generated after this picture date. So, if you already purchased a package in Fall, you will still be receiving your child's class picture as soon as they are completed.

You are not obligated to purchase any pictures but will be welcome to do so!

Please read over the information being sent home this week. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Calkins in the WELC office at 751-6990.

March Parent Workshop!

Ann Girard, Occupational Therapy Assistant

Friday, March 13, 2015 9:00 AM -10:00 AM Washington ELC Library

Come and see which toys and items you have in your house already that help children develop their large and small muscle skills. Ideas will be shared for fun activities you can do with your child! Strategies will be shared to help parents protect their back as they help their children. Each parent will be able to take home for their child an interactive item designed to strengthen motor skills.

Child care during the presentation will be provided by Washington ELC staff.

Please RSVP to your child's teacher ASAP!
