Week of May 14th-18th

Happy Friday!

The N2 & N3 girls ended last week with a Princess Party!  Thank you to the Kellich Family for purchasing and sharing this auction item.  The girls made pizzas, did a craft, got their nails painted and had a dance party!  I hope they had as much fun as the teachers did;-)

Every Tuesday and Thursday Mrs. Clay teaches Music class to Nursery 2.  We love music and can often be "caught" singing songs out side of music class!!  This week Mrs. Clay brought us in a drum.  It was so much fun!

-Music encourages movement!  Tap those fingers to the beat or dancing. 

-Music is fun!!!  And we LOVE it with Mrs. Clay!!

In the Innovation Lab this week, we continued  coding.  We have really enjoyed getting "fuzzy" to his final destination and of course collecting the stars!

If your child has a summer birthday that they would like to celebrate at school, please let me know so that we can pick a date for an "unbirthday" celebration.

 Just a reminder, HCA will be closed Friday, May 25th and Monday, May 28th in observance of the Memorial Day holiday.

Have a wonderful weekend!
Mrs. Devenney
