Having Fun & Feeling Good
Miss Carlie and Miss Sarah were instrumental in helping design and implement a way for the kids to express each day how they are feeling. Please take a moment to check out the revised 'activity board' in the front hall of the center (or on the cart at Wales Campus) to see how we are doing this. Ask your child about it too.
Some ways we have had fun this month so far include:
- celebrating 'National Days' such as National Barbie Day, National Pack Your Lunch Day, and National Cereal Day
- creating sculptures and obstacle courses out of our playground materials
- using cardboard boxes in the Rec Room in our play
- and more air hockey table
If you did not hear... Pre-K has been hard at work developing their own show and will have a performance for their parents tomorrow night. The students chose nursery rhymes and a favorite song about donuts to perform. Each child contributed to costumes, set design, and props. As a way to get feedback they visited the Wales and KM Explore kindergarten classes to do a dress rehearsal.
BILC Donut Shop
The Pre-K class visited Dunkin Donuts a few weeks ago, diagrammed the store, toured it, and then developed a donut shop here at school. All ages have enjoyed making, serving, and enjoying coffee and donuts.
Please let us know if your child is not finding a good balance with homework and fun after school. We are happy to help offer more time spent on homework if needed. Please do keep in mind BILC finds it beneficial for all students to spend time periodically doing independent learning activities even if they do not have specific assigned homework.

Please talk to Traci or Carlie if you would like to make a last minute addition for
Please welcome Miss Abbey if you see her around. She is joining our BILC team for a few weeks as a substitute teacher. She comes to us from Carroll University with many years of experience in early childhood and after school programs. She was at the center last week and will be filling in for Miss Farrah next week.
Family Fun Night - YEAH!!!
Wales Campus is having FAMILY FUN NIGHT on Friday, April 29th. Traci is organizing the cake walk this year and is looking for your support. Please keep your eyes out for the sign up sheet to volunteer (coming soon). BILC would love to have a solid showing of families all supporting the fundraising efforts by donating their time or baked goods.
We all wish the parking lot was a bit better designed, but we do need to work with what we have. Please always be watching for other cars and children when backing up. There have been some close calls lately and we don't want any people or cars to get hurt. THANKS!!!
