Education Director April 2016

Happy April! This month starts the bustle of excitement that leads us into the end of the year. There are conferences, a Night at the Gallery, preparations for Family Nights, planning for Summer, and so much more!

Spring conferences are coming up. We will have no regular classes on April 28 and 29. There will be camps and 30 minute conference care slots available. This must be reserved! Many teachers will also spread out their conferences, offering options for before and/or after class throughout late April. Make sure to check your class schedule and options and sign up for a conference.

This is a time of the year that teachers can share their observations of your children. This is a chance to celebrate the growth and development of our children and to talk about the areas we are still working on. Parents can hear from teachers the things that can support children as they move forward to the next chapter of their education. I often join teachers for as many conferences as I can, so you may see me at yours!

This Saturday, April 9 from 5:00-7:00, is our Night at the Gallery. I'd love to see you all there for this free event! Many thanks to all the volunteers and donors that have contributed to this exciting, upcoming event.

Family Nights are just around the corner in May. You will be hearing from your teachers soon if you haven't yet. Each year, classes have a celebration night for their class and their families. There are so many ways that classes approach this wonderful evening. Some classes put on a play and concert. We've had classes do Family Game Nights, variety shows, plays, open houses, and more. The goal is to invite families to celebrate and share the work children have done together throughout the year. Check with your teachers and mark your calendars!

Summer Camp registration forms are available now in the Main Office and website. We are offering Yoga Camps again this summer. Those forms are also available in the office and online. Please make sure to register early as many weeks will fill up. As in the past, each week is themed and has options for 2 day, 3 day, or 5 day camps. We notice that camps get popular as the summer draws to a close, so make sure to register for your space now!

Enjoy this early Summer teaser. It looks like the forecast calls for plenty of disc golf over the next few days!
