Watch for Leprechauns!

 

Leprechauns can be sneaky. Can you be “sneakier'? Work on building a “leprechaun trap” with your family and watch on Wednesday March 17th to see if you caught one! Shhhhh…we are whispering because we do not want them to hear!

 

 

Saturday March 20th is the First Day of Spring!

 

Parents, if you wish for us to apply sunscreen to your child, please ask us for a sunscreen authorization form to leave with your child's teacher! Springtime sun can cause sun burn! Ouch! (Please provide the sunscreen along with the authorization form!)
