A Note From Our Principal,
We had a wonderful month with our students and families in February and were so happy to welcome some of our students back into our building. We are counting the day until we can finally have everyone back in the building . We can’t wait to see what the next season holds for us as the weather begins to get warmer. We especially love the spring and summer months because they allow us to spend extra time outside with our students. Our teachers are busy coming up with ways to take their lessons outside as weather permits. Don’t forget that Daylight Savings Time begins on Sunday, March 11th!
Mrs. Tiffany Batts
Our before & after care students will be out of school for Spring Break on April 2nd – 6th. Our programming team has planned an amazing camp week for our students and we’d love to have your child join us.

On Your Way—Preschool Summer Camp 2018
We are thrilled to launch “On Your Way”, a continuation of our Links to Learning curriculum that focuses on bringing all the fun and wonder of summer into the classroom in new and exciting ways. This summer long program will introduce students to their communities and prepare them for the school year ahead.
Make Your Mark—School Age Summer Camp 2018
Summer campers at our school have the opportunity to expand their horizons, embark on new adventures, and have fun. Our “Make Your Mark” program is all about inspiring campers to try new things and meaningfully connect with their community and classmates.
In our infant program, we start using baby sign language from the earliest months. Baby signs are common terms that have been modified and simplified from American Sign Language. The signs for this month are “Brother” & “Sister”. To sign the phrase “brother,” make both hands into an “L” shape. Hold one hand down by your chest and place the other hand at your forehead. Bring your top hand down to meet your lower hand. To sign the “sister,” make the same motion as “brother,” but place your one hand at your chin and the other in front of your check.
Art projects are creative and fun ways to develop your child’s fine motor skills. Small-muscle activities, such as painting, help your child learn to control her hand and finger movements, while developing creativity and independence.
This month, your child will answer “what” and “where” questions, understand the concept of five, and identify the names of family members.
This month, your child will add together two groups of objects, learn about various forms of transportation, and understand the meaning of traffic lights.
This month, your child will sound out unfamiliar words independently, count by fives up to 25, and create and interpret a pie chart.
