June in Review

June came and went with such speed…where does the time go?!  In June we had our graduations from our Pre-Kindergarten and Junior Kindergarten classes.  We are so proud of each of the children!  They all did a wonderful job throughout the school year.  We are so excited for our students to transition onto their next adventure! Thank you to all of the parents who contributed to making the graduations a wonderful success!  As we ended our school year program we moved right into our summer program!  How nice it is to see so many old friends, as well as many new!  The older children have already been on a few field trips, and are already having a great time!  We also had our first visit from the Ice Cream Truck, which will be coming every Wednesday, and started our outdoor Water Play and Picnic Days.  We are looking forward to a summer full of adventure!
