Students who will not be attending during the summer months are encouraged to still engage in learning activities over the summer to prevent the “summer slide”.  Below is a link that parents can use to find fun activities to do with their children to help them over the summer.

 Thank you all for a great school year! Have a wonderful summer!


Father's Day is June 18th, and we want to wish all our fathers a great day. Thank you dads for all you do!    




This smoothie is for the pineapple lover in all of us. A double blast of pineapple chunks and pineapple juice, tempered with the sweetness of vanilla yogurt and a whole orange, make for a refreshingly delightful smoothie.


1 Navel Orange
8 oz. Frozen Pineapple
6 fl. oz. Pineapple Juice
5⅓ oz. Vanilla Yogurt


Blend the Smoothie

Place all ingredients and 2 cups ice in a blender. Blend until smooth, 3-5 minutes.


June 29th is International Mud Day! The creators of International Mud Day wanted to find a way to help all of the children of the Earth feel closer to each other…and what a better way to do it than through the Earth itself? We will be celebrating Mud Day at our Center on June 29th. Parents are invited. Please send extra clothing. 



Make sure your kids have plenty of books. Take your kids to the library or the bookstore to pick out some interesting new books. Go to yard sales, and sort through the books there. Organize a book swap in your neighborhood. Do whatever you need to do to keep a fresh supply of books around.

Always pack up books, magazines or newspapers whenever you go somewhere, for your kids and for yourself. Make sure your kids see you reading, whether it's on the beach, while waiting for the softball game to start, or at home.

Try to keep some time available for reading. This is perhaps the hardest thing, as schedules fill up with sports, cookouts, trips and movies. These are all fun, too. But there's no substitute for the occasional afternoon spent under a tree exploring far-off worlds through books.

Encourage social reading. If your child wants to read a book because other kids are reading it, by all means get a copy. This reinforces the idea that reading is cool, and gives your child a chance to talk about the book with others. Take the kids to see a movie based on a book, and also read the book. Do whatever you can to make reading cool and social.
