Dear families,

It looks like spring has arrived!  What a beautiful time of the year to be on our campus. Our students have been enjoying more and more time outside, walking, playing, observing and enjoying the weather. Please continue to send a jacket or sweater for those cooler mornings. We will use our best judgement as to when a school application of sunscreen is needed in the afternoons. Parents should apply sunscreen prior to drop off, if they want an application in the morning.

Many of our students will transition to a new classroom in June. This is an exciting time for students – they will get to visit their new classroom and start building a relationship with their new teachers.  We work to ensure the smoothest transition possible for the kids, but if you have any concerns, please let us know. We are all getting excited for the summer months!

Each year, we devote one week to celebrating our teachers and thanking them for their dedication to our students and our school. Next week we will honor our teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week, with a number of fun treats and gifts. Here are some of the highlights of our upcoming week: Favorite coffee drinks thanks to a school family, breakfast bar thanks to many parent volunteers, a VCELS catered lunch, gift packs, gift cards, cards from students and their families, and a Board sponsored coffee/tea and doughnuts! Let’s show our teachers how much we love them and thank them for working with our children!

In Christ,
