Lords and Ladies Newsletter East: May 2014

April Happenings

The Lords and Ladies have been hard at work and play throughout the month of April as we have sprung into this new season of the year.  We have been learning about eggs, bunnies, flowers, gardens and animals and spring as our surroundings have been changing with the warmer weather.  We will continue to learn about such topics throughout May as the weather continues to change.

Reading and Writing

The Lords and Ladies have continued working on their letters throughout April.  In addition to learning to recognize the letter, the children have also been practicing their fine motor control as we have been working on writing the letters.

Muffins with Mom

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

Spring Fling Extravaganza

The children showed great enthusiasm for the Academy Egg Hunt and our classroom Spring Fling Extravaganza.  The children decorated their own bag for the egg hunt and enjoyed springtime treats with their friends.  Thank you for your continued support of the fun educational endeavors of our classroom!

Sunscreen and Outdoor Play

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 along with the topical application form. We look forward to spending many more days enjoying and exploring nature!

Memorial Day

The Academy will be closed on Monday, May 26h, in observance of Memorial Day.

Parent-Teacher Conferences

The Lords and Ladies class will be holding parent-teacher conferences Tuesday, May 27th and Thursday May 29th.  Please anticipate the conference lasting about 15 minutes. We will be meeting in the Dukes and Duchesses room located to the right of the front desk.  We look forward to being able to spend time with each of you to share what your child has been learning throughout the year!
