Spring Basket Fundraiser

PAC is sponsoring a basket fundraiser. Room mothers from every class will make a basket for the silent auction from the items donated by the parents. The room mothers have already sent out a letter with your class theme and important information about the fundraiser. All baskets are due April 7th. The silent auction begins on April 11th and ends on April 15th at 9:30 a.m. Winners of each basket may pick them up on Friday, April 15th. All proceeds will benefit classroom improvements and technology.

Week of The Young Child

The Week of the Young Child is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) celebrating early learning, young children, their teachers and families. On April 11th – 15th The Robin’s Nest joins NAEYC celebrating our youngest learners by participating in Week of the Young Child! Our students will participate in fun and exciting activities including a concert by children’s musician Jack Hartmann, a martial arts demonstration by Pro Karate, a special building experience and a fun day filled with art activities.

Graduation Celebration

The 4’s classes will be participating in a graduation celebration on Friday, May 27, at 11:00 a.m. The graduation celebration will take place in the Palm Harbor United Methodist Church sanctuary. Please watch for your special invitation and reservation form.
