It’s so hard to believe that the last month of school is here! This year has flown by and we have filled each month with new learning, fun and excitement. We can’t wait to finish our school year with some exciting days and experiences.

This month, we will be welcoming ladybug larvae, caterpillars and ants into our classroom to help with our bug/insect study. This is a great opportunity to observe these bugs and insects and see how they go through changes and to see ants hard at work! We know this will be a great addition to our science center for the month. We can’t wait for your children to share all the excitement with you at home! 

We will also learn about gardens, parts of flowers/plants, and what they need to grow. We are so lucky to have our very own school garden to visit, maybe we will even see some interesting bugs there! Changes are all around us and it is so fun to experience and observe it all.

In June, we celebrate our Dads, Grandpas, Uncles, and all the wonderful people in our lives! We will be holding our Family Breakfast in the Big Room on Thursday, June 6th at 8:00 am. We will be serving pancakes, fruit and drinks and hope you can make it! We can’t wait to celebrate with all of you who made this year a success for your child!

To help us celebrate all of your children’s accomplishments, we will be holding our “Stepping Up” ceremony as we prepare to say goodbye to Pre-K and hello to Kindergarten! It is sure to be a wonderful celebration with music, dancing, and one last hurrah before summer! Stepping Up will be held on Tuesday, June 25th (this is also the last day of school) at 3:00 pm in the Big Room. We hope to see you there! Please look for additional information going home soon!

Happy June! How is it the last month of school? The year has flown by and we have loved every minute with your children, watching them learn and grow! Thank you for the opportunity!

This month we will be digging deeper into our study of insects and frogs. The children are so interested in bugs as we find them while playing outside. We plan to go on a bug hunt and see how many kinds of bugs we can discover. We have many bug related art projects in mind, so watch for those buggy creations coming home! We have Painted Lady caterpillars growing in our classroom! We hope to see them become chrysalises and eventually butterflies! We will be learning about pond life this month as well.

Our school garden is really taking shape! Our class has decided to plant corn, carrots and tomatoes. The kids are very excited to get their hands in the dirt! Once we plant, we will be helping to weed and water each day. So fun!

As the school year comes to a close, we are planning an end of year celebration! Monday, June 24 at 4:00 pm we will gather in the Big Room to recognize all your children’s accomplishments this year! We ask that each family brings a snack to share. Look for a sign up as we get closer! 

First Steps will be closed on Wed. June 19th in observance of Juneteenth. 

Happy Father’s Day to all our Dads and Grandpas! We appreciate you all and hope that you enjoy your day! 

Thank you!

Welcome June! It is astonishing to realize that the end of the school year is quickly approaching! Our UPK students have made extraordinary progress in their growth and development, making us incredibly proud as they gear up for Kindergarten.

Throughout this month, we will be concentrating on exciting summer-themed projects and activities designed to enhance essential skills such as cutting, gluing, name writing, letter work, counting and writing numbers. We will continue to spend a lot of time outside playing and enjoying the beautiful weather. The remarkable advancements the children have made in these areas since September truly deserves recognition, and we could not be prouder of their tireless efforts.

We are looking forward to honoring our amazing fathers and expressing our gratitude for their unwavering love and support during our upcoming Father’s Day Celebration. Keep an eye out for more details to be shared soon.

As we get ready for our graduation ceremony, we eagerly anticipate celebrating the commitment and resilience demonstrated by both students and families throughout the school year. This will be a wonderful opportunity to create and share fond memories with one another.

It has been an absolute pleasure getting to know your children and watching them grow, learn, and form lasting friendships. As they embark on their next adventure in Kindergarten, we wish you a delightful summer and all the best for the future. Thank you for a truly remarkable year. Everyone will be greatly missed!

All the best,

Ms. Kimberly, Ms. Angelina, and Ms. Brandi
