Bluebird April Newsletter
The month of April was a very busy month of growing for the Blue Bird Class. We welcomed Blake, Nia, and Sophie to our community…. and Liam, Carley, Vivaan and Anjali moved into the afternoon class. These days, children are working with deep concentration, and mentorship has taken flight as well. Older children are reading stories to the younger children; they are also playing sound games with them, showing them how to trace letters and how to write in cursive on a chalk board. Almost all the afternoon children have started reading!
Parents, our year end class performance (Cultural Day) is on Thursday, May 17th from 10:00 to 12:00 am in the gym. Parents, if you don’t want to miss any of the songs or dance that your child performs please be there in the gym by 9:50 am as we will start right at 10:00 and finish at 11:00 am. From 11:00 to 12:00am, we will have our potluck lunch. After the performance the children will be very tired. Parents, you are welcome to take your children home. I am excited to see all you Bluebird families on this “Cultural Day”. The sign-up sheet for this event is placed on the notice board outside the room. Please take a minute to sign-up.
I come to the carnival every year and it’s fun to meet and chat with all my parents. This year also I hope to see you all with your children at the carnival on May 5th. I am planning to do henna this year again, so please come and see me if you are interested! Thanks to Aradhana’s mom, Shiva, for helping our class with the beautiful auction Project. The children enjoyed working it.
It was nice meeting all of you for our conference. I enjoyed talking with all my parents about their child’s growth at home and at school.
Summer is almost here! That being said it might be time for a haircut if hair is falling over a child’s eyes. Please trim your child’s nails as well. Some days are really hot, so please make sure that your child is wearing shorts or ¾ leggings under their dresses/skirts, for playing on the playground and because we work on the floor and children are still practicing how to sit with crossed legs. All the children are asked to bring their own water bottle that has loops on it--in that way it can easily hang on their hooks. Also, please check to see that all your child’s belongings here are somehow labeled, so if something is lost, it can be returned.
Thanks for your kind help and support.
