Spring Greetings from the Primary Class

What a full and fun winter we’ve enjoyed! I have so much to share with you about all the fun we’re going to have in spring.

Our thematic units over the next few months will be so exciting with March focusing on dinosaurs, April focusing on Gardens & Bugs, and May focusing on our Oceans. I can’t wait to share new work, books, and art activities with your children to help them deepen their familiarity with these topics.

In March, we will begin our continent study of Asia. Generally, a continent study will last between 4 weeks and 12 weeks, depending on the size of the continent and the diversity of countries and cultures therein.

Other important dates:

  • Spring Break begins March 13th with a half day of school and school closure on March 14th and 15th.
  • April 8th-12th is the NAEYC Week of the Young Child. We have so many fun activities planned for the week and would welcome parent participation, if your schedule permits.
  • April 19th will be our Spring Egg Hunt with some happy and hungry farm animals. We’ll fill the eggs with treats for our animal friends and then get to feed them.
  • May 3rd will be our Graduation Ceremony at 10am for all students who are moving on to new schools.
  • May 10th will be our Mother’s Day Tea where the children will prepare a lovely breakfast spread for you to stop and enjoy together on your way into school.
  • May 23rd will be our first SPLASH DAY of 2019! Your child will need a towel, wet bag, closed-toe water shoes and a bathing suit. More details on that in the coming weeks.
  • May 27th — we will be closed for Memorial Day
