PRE-K 4 NEWS!

ADIOS AMIGOS! JUAN DIEGO ACADEMY JUNE 13, 2016

ANNOUNCEMENTS:


Dear Parents,

This is the last letter from the Pre-K 4 teachers to you. It was a pleasure to work with you and your children during this school year. Thanks again for all your support and understanding when we sent all the requirements for the field trips and different activities we did for our students. Thanks for allowing us to be a part of your children’s growth and development. God bless you all and have a wonderful and safe summer. We hope to see you all next fall.

This week will continue practicing for our End of the Year Program “Adios Amigos”, and we will be finishing some art projects and covering some activities from last week.

Reminders:

· Thursday June 16th we have our last Mass of the school year at 9:00 am.


· Program of the End of the Year will be on Thursday June 16th from 10:15 to 11:30. We will need the food donations for our Taco Bar Luncheon on Wednesday 15 or Thursday 16th early in the morning. Remember that the Program will start right after Mass.


Please if you have not paid the $6 for the tutu or the hat for your child, please do so as soon as you can.

Girls need to wear a solid colored t-shirt and leggings can be any color. We will put their tutu on at school. The boys may wear jeans and a white button down shirt. We will provide the bandana. Their hats have arrived and we will give each boy his hat on the day of the program.

Happy birthday wishes go out for Alaura, Grace and Sophia Romero, whose birthdays will be during the summer!!! Have great fun celebrating your birthdays!!

We also want to wish all our Fathers a Happy Father’s Day!
