It’s hard to believe that the school year is almost over. It has been a joy to watch your children grow this year. We are all so happy that we could be open during this challenging time. We are thankful for all of your patience and understanding to help make this school year a success for all of us.

GRADUATIONWOW! Graduation is almost here!

Graduation is on May 25th at either 9:30 or 11:30 in the Palm Harbor United Methodist Church sanctuary. In efforts to keep everyone seated and social distanced we will take photos of your child receiving their diploma in rehearsal prior to graduation. For your part we are asking that you simply sit back and enjoy the graduation program. You may still take a photo from your seat but please do not walk up front in the sanctuary. The children and the teachers have worked hard and we want to honor their efforts by not interrupting the program with unnecessary distractions and staying social distanced for safety reasons. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.

VPK LAST DAY ATTENDANCE – VPK students are required to attend the last day of school on May 25th. Any VPK child not present on the last day will be listed with the Early Learning Coalition as not having completed the VPK program. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.

EARLY DISMISSAL ON MAY 25th – Please note the two and three year old classes will be dismissed at 10:45 a.m. on May 25th. Also there will be no extended day program, VPK students will be dismissed following their graduation ceremony.

ADOPT-A-CLASS – As the year begins to wind down, we would like to give a great big thank you to all who so generously donated to our Adopt-A-Class program this school year. Your donations were greatly received and used directly by your child’s teachers to purchase many needed materials and supplies for their classrooms. Here is a short list of some of the wonderful ways your generous donations were used to enhance your child’s classroom experience:

Magic boards, light boards, translucent blocks, puzzles, Wikki sticks, Kinetic sand, classroom carpet, dry erase lap boards, magnetic gears, ant farm, shape sorting games, science specimen kits, classroom furniture, floor cushions and much more. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
