mother's day.jpgRemember that Mother’s Day is Sunday May 14th. Make sure you make her day extra special.

A mother holds a special place in the hearts and minds of her children.  Mother’s Day is May 14th and there is no better way to celebrate than with the whole family.

We’re sure sleeping in on Mother’s Day sounds nice and that having some alone time can make for an enjoyable day.  But doesn’t it sound like a better idea to make this holiday a family day?  We encourage you to get outside and spend some quality time with your kids and loved ones.


May 10th We will have our Kindergarten Orientation With Peggy Rudd from the school district, at 6:00pm in room #1. Lot's of important information!


May 15th It is important for us that the children get familiar with their new schools. It is a big change for them! For that reason, we are having a field trip to the following Elementary schools: West Side Elementary, East Side Elementary And Central Elementary. Ask your teacher for the permission slips that parents need to sign. 


Celebrate.pngMay 19th Our End Of the Year celebration will be in the Harlem pavilion at 10:00am. Students will perform plays and we are going to have a ceremony for our students that are in transition to Kindergarten. Family and Friends are welcome to attend. Bring your cameras. 





  • 2 Bananas
  • Peanut butter
  • 1 cup Cereal (this one uses rice cereal)


1. First peel the bananas and cut them into thirds.

2. Then dump some cereal onto your wax paper, smear the bananas in peanut butter, and roll the peanut butter bananas in the cereal. That's it! You're done!
