Healthy Start Wisdom From Ms. Alisha

The Book Nook

The Berenstain Bears Go on Vacation

An oldie but a goodie!! Now that the whether is getting nicer, lets swing into summer full blast! So many summer related books allow our minds to explore new ideas, new adventures, and even learn about new places. The Barenstain Bears Go On Vacation is a tail about the family going in a trip to the beach. The book talks about family activities to do while at the beach as well as highlighting the meaning of family time.

The Parent's Spotlight

Thank you!!!

  • Thank you to all the parents for donations for family fun day!

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

  • Bringing in donations of items anytime we guys rock!!

Would you like to donate?

We could use:

  • Clear plastic jars with lids 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
