Toddler Community News

Dear families,

A few days of school left, I’m not sure I’ve quite processed that. I’ve been thinking about the summer, and sort of flew right by the end of the year. Again, I want to take the opportunity to thank you all for your welcome to JMS. Truthfully, it’s only been four months, and many of you have so kindly shifted as the Toddler Community has changed. Thank you for your support and understanding. Thank you for your partnership and openness in our communications. I appreciate each of your families, and am thankful for having your children in the classroom.

Summer school will be starting Monday, June 12. I will be here leading the group, with Julie as the Assistant. Julie currently works at World Learner and then comes over to JMS to finish out the day in Casa 3. She will be here on Friday, June 2 to learn from Sara all the ins and outs of what we do.

Please remember to send your yearbook form and signed progress report back by Tuesday, June 6. The last day for the Toddlers is Wednesday, June 7. On Wednesday, we will be packing up your child’s belongings to send them home for the summer. If your child is joining us for summer school, you can send belongings back on the first day of summer school. It would be helpful if you could send a labeled bag to school that day to fill with your child’s belongings.

We will have several children moving up into Casa at the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year. I wish them all the best as they continue on in their educational adventure and know they will be guided by very caring, compassionate, and talented Guides. I look forward to watching them grow as they advance into the Casas.

I hope you all have a lovely summer and enjoy the memories you will get to make with your children. These years are so precious and memorable, and whether you are staying close by or traveling, I truly hope you can maximize your time together. See you soon!

Wishing you the best,

Amanda
