Summer Greetings from the Infant Class

Well, spring sure felt busy, didn’t it? Our Week of the Young Child and Gardening Day were both huge successes, and though our Annual Egg Hunt was cancelled, we certainly loved “Feed the Goats Day” just as much. Thank you so much to our parents who brought in items and volunteered to help during these events; we loved every minute of them!

For the weeks we are in school in June, we will learn about “Animal Science.” In July we will discuss “Transportation,” and in August our monthly theme is “Weather and Seasons.” I look forward to identifying animal sounds, exploring the many different ways of getting around, and experiencing summer weather with our friends. On the Friday before our summer vacation, we plan to make Frozen Banana Popsicles as a fun Last Day of Schooltreat. If you have any concerns about this, please let me know, and we can find something else for your child to enjoy!

Lastly, I want to give a big “Thank You” to all of you who have celebrated with me after my recent engagement as well as upon receiving the Terri Lynne Lokoff National Child Care Teacher Award, the biggest accomplishment of my career. With the $500 grant I have been awarded, I will be creating an outdoor space made suitable for our immobile infants. I cannot wait for them to be able to enjoy outside time at school on those beautiful weather days. Thank you for all your love and support. I could not be the teacher I am without such wonderful families!
