Hello families!

As summer vacation approaches we have been talking alot in school about ideas for playing outside and how to stay safe while doing so.

This week we focused on bike safety and tomorrow the children will be practicing the new skills they learned at our Trike-a-thon! We will be outside riding tricycles for about 30 minutes and it is supposed to be sunny and hot; please dress your child for the weather in comfortable play clothes and gym shoes.

Enjoy the sunshine and have a great afternoon!

We will have a presentation by Covenant Community Care (a community service that provides dental services and education) and well as exploring the nutrition program we recently began in our classroom titles “Regie’s Rainbow Adventure.
