Dear Parents and Friends,

Thank you for entrusting us with your precious children. We had a wonderful year, watching them learn, develop and grow! We enjoyed the many lessons, projects and celebrations culminating with our graduations that took place at both our Warren and Scotch Plains locations.

We wish everyone a happy, healthy and fun-filled summer break filled with adventure and of course, learning! We also hope you'll consider joining us for summer camp if you haven't already signed up. We have lots of great field trips activities and new course offering for the summer plus bus transportation to and from camp! For details see "Coming Up" section below.

Until then, be well and be happy!
With warmest regards,

The Spring Academy Staff

THREE CHEERS FOR THE RED, WHITE AND BLUE !
On Flag Day, Ms. Melissa, a teacher Intern was here in Scotch Plains to teach a lesson about the American Flag and patriotism. She also helped students bake an American Flag cake with fresh blueberries and strawberries. Delicious!
BEYOND THE CLASSROOM WALLS...
Our Warren Students have been working hard outside of the classroom this Spring tending to their garden - planting seeds for vegetables and flowers and watering often. The class also enjoys eating their home-grown vegetables with lunch! Fresh and yummy!

Our students also had a lesson in kite making -- learning about shapes and colors and why kites fly. Then they had some fun flying their kites around.

They also love just being outside sitting on the grass or running around the playground.
FROM FARM TO CLASSROOM...
Farmer Eric from Quiver Farm Projects was here in Scotch Plains to teach us about farm animals. He brought in his hen Gail and his rooster Shadow for the class to meet. He taught students about chick hatching and that an egg needs to flipped three times a day.
CELEBRATING OUR MOMS!
Our moms joined us at both locations for a Mother's Day Tea and student presentation. Lots of hugs, kisses and smiles all around.
MOMMY & ME SPANISH!
We have successfully completed our trial series of Mommy & Me Spanish at our Warren site. Moms and other other caregivers had the chance to enjoy a fun and engaging Spanish Immersion workshop. More Spanish to come... our Spanish immersion camp will kick off the week of June 25th. To request information visit:  https://springacademyus.com/contact-us/ k
