Spring is here!  That means that we will be having music class outside whenever possible!  There are many activities I like to do with the children in nature, such as using our sense of listening to outdoor sounds, marching through the woods with instruments for our own marching band, and waving the "ribbons on a stick" to different styles of music.  I have lots more yoga and songs to teach the children as well.  Be sure to ask your child what we did in music class no matter what the weather is!

Thank you so much for all the wonderful cards, flowers & treats during Teacher Appreciation Week. The whole staff felt so loved and appreciated! We are truly blessed with amazing families here at St. David's Preschool!

You can find the school calendar and all upcoming events on our website's News & Events page.
News from the Directors
March came in as a lion and is going out like one too! We are hoping that April will bring lots of sunny, warm weather. The children love to play outside and when it's warmer, there's more opportunity for outdoor learning for all. 
 
April brings conference time. This is a time for your child's lead teacher to meet with you to discuss how much your child has grown and developed this year at St. David's. It's a time for them to show you samples of your child's work and tell you all about how your child interacts during the school day. Feel free to bring your questions, concerns or comments to the conference. We appreciate your input and want to make sure you get all the information you need!
 
When we return from Spring Break, there will be a lot of information about our Super Summer Send Off Celebration & Auction sponsored by POPS! If you haven't done so already, be sure to mark your calendar for Friday, May 3. This fundraiser helps the school in many different ways. This year alone, POPS was able to help us install a new security system, add fresh new signs on our campus and bring  Wildlife Ambassadors to the classes this month. We are blessed to have such a hard working group of parents willing to make a difference here at St.David's!
 
Blessings,
Julie and Ann-Marie
