Notes from the Toddler Room

Dear Families, say WHAAAAAT????! How can it be that we are here already, at the beginning of the end?! Before we talk business, Shannon and I want to thank you for our wonderful Teacher Appreciation Luncheon the other day! (We know the secret notice went out and it was a covert operation, so we are not able to thank any of you specifically.) The meal was delicious, the flowers so beautiful, and we felt pampered by having a FULL HOUR to sit with our coworkers and enjoy conversation and “completion of meal,” unlike our usual days here!

Before we know it, June 24 will be upon us and we will have to say goodbye for the summer; until then, we’re making the most out of the month! You’ll notice the first week is dedicated to the good ole U.S. of A. We wanted to spread out our patriotic pride! Weeks 2 and 3 take us to the Ocean! It will be “all things aquatic” plus some tropical tourist craziness! At SOME POINT during these 2 weeks, we will have our annual June wet fun, with WATER WEEK!!! As of this writing, I am not sure which week we will get in our bathing suits and get soaked…(this will be contingent upon weather.)  But we are asking you to go ahead and send in your child’s water week items on or before Monday, June 6. These items include: bathing suit, beach towel, and water shoes of some sort. (These need to be in addition to their regular school shoes, as these will get water-logged during our saturation activities!) We’re looking forward to this twist on play time…the wetter the better!! Our final week will be bittersweet for us. We are super excited that we will have summer days at home with our own families, but we already know we’ll probably get choked up when we give your kiddos a summer hug goodbye! (Some of our toddlers will not be returning to our center in September, and we hope you know how much you will be missed.) Speaking of the end of June, just wanted to let you know that Shannon will not be here on our final day, June 24, because her daughter is graduating from high school that day! Woop Woop!!! For returning SJFC ELC families…Mary Beth has scheduled our fall open house day for Thursday, 9/1, from 10-12! But let’s not rush away July and August just yet….Happy Summer, everyone! Thank you again for sharing your children with us. It has been pure joy getting to know these little creatures and being with them day by day, watching their development unfold before our very eyes!
