PEACEMAKERS – The Robin’s Nest is helping to create a new generation of peacemakers by having our VPK students participate in the Peacemakers program. The Peacemakers program is a holistic program developed to empower children and youth to live peaceful lives. Mr. John and Ms. Kim will visit each VPK class the beginning February 25th, providing a 5 week Peace curriculum addressing peace, peacemaking skills, individuality and diversity, identifying & expressing feelings, safety planning and respect for the environment. Make Peace!
“The more peace there is in us, the more peace there will be in our troubled world.” – Etty Hillesum
DADS NIGHT! Robin’s Nest has a special night planned for the 3’s and 4’s classes on February 27th starting at 6:00. If Dad is not available, grandpas, uncles, or other adult male friends are welcome. Watch for an invitation coming your way soon!
COLD AND FLU SEASON IS HERE! This is a great time of year to help your child focus on forming good healthy habits. It is especially important that during cold and flu season parents keep sick children at home to prevent spreading illnesses to others.
The best way to keep yourself and your family safe and healthy during the cold/flu season is to:
- Keep sick family members home;
- Contact your health care provider if you or your child are experiencing flu-like symptoms; and
- Follow your doctor’s guidance on treatment.
SPRING BASKET AUCTION APRIL 6TH – 9TH – Can you believe it? We’ve already begun thinking about our Spring Basket Auction! With your help, each class will create a unique class art project and put together a fun-filled basket based on a designated theme. A list of the themed baskets will be posted on the PAC bulletin board in the Robin’s Nest hallway.
In addition to the class baskets, we often get generous donations from local businesses. Our auction usually has over 100 items to bid on!
If you know of any businesses that would like to make a donation – or would like to make a donation yourself- please let your room mom, PAC Officer Sarah Thompson or the Robin’s Nest office know. We can provide any needed paperwork.
SNACKS – Please remember that we strive to provide the children with nutritious food snacks. Highly sweetened treats, such as cookies (all types), potato chips, brownies, granola bars, gummy bears, and fruit roll -ups, will be permitted only for special occasions. As a reminder, The Robin’s Nest is a peanut free school. No nuts or nut butters of any kind are allowed. Thank you!!!
