May Newsletter 2022

As the 2021-2022 school year comes to an end for our Preschoolers, we can look back in delight at all of the growth, learning and memories that were made! May was full of fun and several activities for our children and staff.

Cinco de Mayo

Wild Plum staff and board of directors joined the City of Longmont and many other organizations in celebrating Cinco de Mayo at Roosevelt Park.

Cinco de Mayo, is not as many believe, Mexican Independence Day. Rather, "the holiday of Cinco de Mayo, The 5th of May, commemorates the victory of the Mexican militia over the French army at The Battle of Puebla in 1862". Longmont Celebrates Cinco de Mayo aims to celebrate this holiday as well as create a better understanding and acceptance of the Latino community. It gives each other an opportunity to learn about the many resources available to all in our community.

Growing Gardens- Field Trip!

Children from our Longs Peak and Meeker locations were invited to visit the Food Project Farm in Longmont. Students and teachers learned about the cycle of a seed, tasted multiple seeds, harvested spinach and planted zucchini. 

All students got to take home freshly harvested lettuce and their planted seed.

Thank you to the Growing Gardens staff for this opportunity!!

Summer Learning Kits

For two meetings in April Twin Peaks Rotary Club set aside its traditional meeting format (a speaker and Q&A) and had members and guests assemble tugging balls, stick puppets and sensory bottles. Not something that all members of the club were used to doing.

Can you imagine Rotarians making components for five different toolkits for over 200 children?  That’s what was completed! 

Wanting to join in on the fun, the team from Southwest Research Institute created 75 build and color rockets and 75 space collages! 

The kits include learning guides, providing parents with the tools to partner with their children and foster areas of development. Overall the idea is to continue learning outside the classroom and provide summer time fun for our kiddos!

Wild Plum is lucky to have the support of so many volunteer groups, this is one example of how our community gives back to our kiddos, thank you!!

Annual Report

Despite the hardships of the 2020-2021 School Year, one can only marvel at the strength of our program, staff, families and community. Together, we were able to adapt and overcome the seemingly endless obstacles that we faced as we strived to enter the school year with a sense of normalcy.

The school year might not have been what we envisioned, but its nuances paved the path for what has turned out to be a successful year full of adaptation, momentum, unity and encouragement.
