Saturday June 17th

I hope everyone is getting a chance to enjoy the nice weather this week!

On Saturday we will be preparing a Father’s Day surprise for all the dads and caregivers, therefor the craft will remain a secret for the week.

We are working hard to assure we can make it to the pool this week since we missed out this past Saturday. Please make sure you have your swim stuff packed as well as outdoor gear (hat, sunglasses, sunscreen) incase we are unable to safely get to the pool.

THANK YOU to Kevin and his family for such a yummy snack!

*You should all have received an email this morning from "Punchbowl". That is an invitation to our year-end Potluck which will be NEXT SATURDAY on June 24th. We hope to see you all there!

Have a wonderful week!

Saturday June 4th + Family Year-End Survey

Hello Everyone,

As some of you might know, Jessica (Program Coordinator) is going to be absent for the month of June. I (Danielle-Assistant Program coordinator) will be taking over the role for the month with the help of Samiha as Assistant Program Coordinator.

This week, we will be having fun “Under the Sea”. We will be making a Jelly Fish as the craft and will have fun with an ocean themed sensory activity. If the weather is nice, we might spend some time outside, so please bring a hat, sunscreen, jacket, etc.

Please pack your swimming attire as we are plan on going to the pool.

Also, if all families can take a few minutes to complete this year-end survey, it would be greatly appreciated. You’ll find the link to the survey in the email communiqué you should have received on May 31. Let me know if you lost the link and I’ll resend it!

Have a wonderful week and see you on Saturday!
