Spring Sing

Spring Sing: Building a Better World

6:30 p.m. – University of Toledo Recital Hall
Perrysburg and Toledo Kindergarten Spring Concert

It’s hard to believe that Spring has finally sprung! The children have all been anxious to strip off their winter gear and run freely in the field. Even though the weather hasn’t been cooperating the way we would like it to, we are going out to play daily. Please dress your child accordingly ( in layers).  The older children are also starting to visit the Children’s House playground in the morning. They are enjoying having the opportunity to explore the bigger space and structure.

Next week we will begin our lesson on primary color mixing. This is a fun, hands on  learning exercise where children will discover that when two primary colors are mixed together, a new secondary color will be made. Children will be mixing both water and paint during this lesson.

We look forward to spending the month of May with all of our wonderful Grandparents and “Special Friends”. Please don’t forget to remind them all that Friday, May 8th is for our Wednesday through Friday group only and that Monday, May 11th is for our Monday through Friday and Monday/ Tuesday group.

Don’t forget about our wonderful Summer Camp program.It’s a great opportunity to continue the routine of our  Montessori philosophy this summer !
