Summer is here....in case you haven't noticed yet. Hotter days for the next couple of months or so.
We are outside a great deal of the time now. Kids are dressing in summer clothing which means a lot less clothing. Keep in mind we do have bark around the climbing gyms. Just a reminder that girls in dresses need to wear shorts under their dresses to protect their legs. No open toe shoes, or backless shoes. No shoelaces please. Keep them safe and have them wear secure shoes.
Summer time means a break from curriculum. Just like in regular school the kids get a summer break from class work, so the same goes here. We will start up the curriculum again in September.
Their school bags will remain here for the summer. They will not be going home weekly until September. Everyone should have received their child's binder to take home and keep. We will start up a new binder in September.
Here is to a wonderful summer. There are lots of weekend activities going on throughout out county and city. If you have a vacation planned soon enjoy it.
Congratulations to our new kindergarteners.
Andrea, Emma and Alexis.
The girls are here for the summer, and then will start school mid August.
And to our little guys,
Stop row standing (red shirt) Jonathan is a Frogger. He starts Kinder next year.
Middle row: Andrew Tadpole, M'Kai polliwog, Dylan, Polliwog, Scarlett, Tadpole,
front row: Killian Tadpole, Aidan Tadpole, Aubrey Tadpole, and Lukas, Tadpole.
Froggers= 4-5 year olds. those who will be leaping into kindergarten the next year
Tadpoles, (just getting legs) are 3-4 year olds.
Polliwogs (no legs yet) 2-3 year olds.
Note: We have 2-3 new kids joining us later in August. Two brothers will start August 18th. And possibly another little boy at the same time. Possibily two of the new kids will be Froggers.
Interesting fact. By August 18th if the third child possible to sign up is a boy, out of 12 kids enrolled, 3 will be girls, and 9 will be boys. It's been a long time since the boys out numbered the girls this drastically. Our 3 girls will be Aubrey, Scarlett, and M'Kai. Don't worry these girls can hold their own with these boys.
I want to thank everyone who joined us for the graduation pot luck picnic. It went nicely, and it was a treat to have the music man come out and join us that day as well.
And Thank you for joining us on parent hooky day as well. It was a nice little musseum and the kids had a blast exploring everything in the place. I hope you take the opportunity to return to the WOW musuem with your child again.
