Yay! Our Kids, Staff, and Teachers are back in our beautiful building. While some are still staying fully remote this last term, the building is brimming with more life than it has had for more than 13 months. Welcome back to all of you. Spring is here, and lighter days are ahead! We hope you have had a wonderful Spring break.
On Monday, April 19, our first-ever Spring ASE Outdoor session will kick off with the first classes. A huge thank you to our fantastic ASE committee, Sarah Hudson-Plush, Kimberly Latortue, and Najla Nazeemudeen, and everyone else who worked tirelessly to make this a reality in a very short timeframe. Thank you to our instructors. We can’t wait for next week.
Enjoy the wonderful spring weather.
See you around,
Do you remember the amazing Eco-Fair back in May 2019? Last year it was held virtually, but we hope to be able to host our Eco-Action Committee signature event, which is all about eco-friendliness and sustainability, and focus on what we can do to live in better balance with our green environment.
However, if this is going to happen, we need Eco-Fair organizers and volunteers to help bring this event to life this year.
The pictures are from the 2019 Eco-Fair; this year, it will be with social distancing protocols, of course.
Please reach out if you can help make this event a reality.
Calling all parents and caregivers! We need your help!
We are excited to make this first-ever session of Spring ASE happen but we need your help!
Volunteers are needed to act as on-site admin for ASE. This would include, but not be limited to, doing temperature checks at sign-in; directing children to their designated area; and ensuring social distance guidelines are being practiced.
We are still in need of volunteers to work shifts from 3:00 to approximately 5:00 on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.
Please SIGN UP HERE to volunteer!
If you are a parent or guardian interested in volunteering or have questions on volunteering please email us at email@example.com
