Lords and Ladies Newsletter East: May 2012

April Happenings

April has been a busy month with the introduction of water play days and our various outdoor activities. We learned about Spring life from Spring showers to animals and plants.  We also explored patterns, learning that a pattern is “something that happens over and over again”.   The children enjoyed exploring transportation on land, in the water, and in the air as well as the colors found in our world.  Lastly, we have continued learning our letters and numbers while practicing writing them.


The Lords and Ladies classroom would like to welcome Leilani to The Academy and the Lords and Ladies classroom.  We would also like to welcome Tiernan and Gabe who are moving up from the Jesters classroom.

Academy Closings

The Academy will be closed Monday, May 28th, in observance of Memorial Day.  We hope you enjoy the extra time with your family and friends!

Thank You!

Thank you to everyone for contributing to our Spring Extravaganza party this year!  The Lords and Ladies enjoyed the special treats as well as time spent with their families.  A visit from the Spring bunny made the event extra special this year!

Muffins with Mom

Happy Mother’s Day!  Please join your child in celebrating this special day by sharing a muffin on Friday, May 11th, from 7 am to 9 am.

Parent Communication

Please be sure to check your child’s folder daily, which is located beside our classroom door.  We place any written communication such as newsletters as well as your child’s artwork in this folder.

Parent-Teacher Conferences

The Lords and Ladies class will be holding parent-teacher conferences Monday, May 7th, and Tuesday, May 8th.  Please anticipate the conference lasting about 15 minutes.  As conferences will be held during the children’s naptime, we will be meeting in the Dukes and Duchesses room located to the right of the front desk.  I look forward to being able to spend time with each of you to share what your child has been learning throughout the year!

Sunny Days

With the change in the season, we would like to ensure that your child is protected during our outdoor play.  Please remember to apply sunscreen to your child every morning before arriving at school.  We will be sure to reapply sunscreen following naptime for our afternoon outdoor playtime.  In addition, please be sure your child has a bottle of sunscreen at school.  We look forward to spending many more days enjoying and exploring nature!

The Lords and Ladies have been busily learning about each other this past month.  As always, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to speak with us or Mr. Jordan.
