May 2013 Newsletter
It’s hard to believe that another school year has flown by and is drawing to a close! Your children have grown and learned so much, not just about academics but how to be peaceful, kind caretakers for our world. A child’s capacity for knowledge, compassion and growth is a beautiful and fascinating thing. Thank you for letting us share this experience with them, we have had so much fun together. Enjoy a safe, wonderful summer!

*Tuition and After Care balances are due on Thursday, May 30, upon pickup of your child. If you have a question concerning your balance, feel free to contact the school, and we would be happy to send home an itemized list of dues that need to be settled. Inquiries can be made over the phone or e-mailed to email@example.com.
**Teenagers! First, we want to hug and protect them then we want to throw them out of the house! Living with an adolescent is no walk in the park. If we are going through this turmoil as parents, imagine what they are living. So…
We would like to invite you to Middle School transition night to show you how we meet the developmental needs of teenagers, academically, personally, and socially.
Please Help Us
*By making sure that your children wear shoes with a back strap, for playground safety.
May is a month of review and reflection.
As Spring Conferences are not required, if you have any questions, or concerns, or just want a wrap-up for the year please contact Mrs. Bowe at firstname.lastname@example.org, to set up a time to talk. We will also be sending home written progress reports (along with current volunteer totals) very soon.
