Thank you Dhaveloose Family

Thank you so much to the Dhaveloose Family for donating sensory boxes filled with calming toys for each classroom and office, a beanbag chair for the office, as well as a bucket full of books. Children will be able to go the calming rug in their classroom and calm themselves down. We greatly appreciate their thoughtfulness and generosity.

Our Kindergarten went on their last field trip of the year to Butterfly World! They had a wonderful time seeing all the different kinds of butterflies, bugs and animals. We are going to miss having a Kindergarten and hearing all about their fun adventures.
