For the Love of Learning™

This Month’s News

Happy Spring Berry Patch families! It was wonderful to have a little change of pace and perhaps a change of scenery, wasn’t it? We hope you had a fabulous spring break with your little ones wherever you were and whatever you experienced!

We love being back in action, and have so many exciting things planned for the next couple of months. Please note the following dates and details for April and scroll down for a few important May dates as well.  

THEME:  Spring, Weather, Easter                                                 

VIRTUE:  Caring

Tues. 2nd and Wed. 3rd – Spring Partnership with Stages Theatre, week 2.  Children LOVED the first day of this partnership last week and are very excited to see what awaits them this week!

Week of April 8th – Spanish for you Berry Patcher.  Children continue to learn and grow as they prepare for our end of the year concert.  Please be sure to check out Ms. Zara’s monthly newsletter for recently introduced vocabulary, phrases and songs you may practice at home.

Mon. 22nd – Spring Parent Teacher conferences will be held on this date and there will be NO SCHOOL.  You may schedule a conference appointment by using the link to your child’s classroom offerings which will be emailed to you in early April.  Please note that conference time is an important opportunity provided for you to visit one-on-one with your child’s teacher.  We encourage you to come and hear about the progress your student has made, goals that your child’s teacher has for him or her for the remainder of the school year, and share your observations.  We hope to see you all and ask that you arrange child care for your children so that your conference time is distraction free!

Tues. 23rd and Wed. 24th Field Trips for our Blueberries and Strawberries.  This one is always a favorite!

Thurs. 25th – Parent Ed Lunch & Learn at Colonial from 12:00 – 1:00.  Berry Patch Parent Educator, Becky Danielson, will present and facilitate our discussion on Building Your Parent Tool Kit.  Come learn more about equipping yourself for the incredibly joyous and challenging job of parenting!  You will receive practical tips and applications, and lunch will be provided.  Please let us know you’d like to attend by emailing reservations@berrypatchschool.com.  Please include Lunch & Learn in your subject line.
