I'd like to take a minute to tell you what a wonderful year I've had with your littles! We have learned, danced, loved, and laughed!! This is a fantastic group and I couldn't be happier to have been their teacher and I'm proud of how they've grown and especially for how they take care of and care about each other. They all leave a special mark on my heart and I will miss them terribly next year. Thank you to all of you for your caring and support throughout this year. I appreciate you so much. Most of all, thank you for sharing your precious kiddos with me. It has been a joy to be with them each day. Wishing all of you a fabulous summer! 
With Love,
Andrea <3 :-)


Please make sure your child brings his/her GREEN folder TOMORROW if they haven't already. I will be keeping them until next week, just fyi. :-)

AM Class Sign Up Information--Please keep checking. :-)

Hi everyone!! There is a mistake on the morning sign up, as someone accidentally signed up for the wrong class. Please keep checking the sign up because there are items that look like they have been chosen but will actually still need to be supplied. I can't undo other people's choices, but they should be cleared out today.

Mother's Day!

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all of you awesome mamas!! I hope your day is full of love and joy with your littles and loved ones! Enjoy! 

Thank you!

Hi everyone! Happy Weekend! I just wanted to send a big THANK YOU for all of the wonderful gifts, notes, cards, and goodies I received for teacher appreciation!! It was awesome and made my heart smile!! Thank you, also, for the food, drinks, and treats that were donated for meals for our amazing GVA staff! Your kindness is more than appreciated!
With Love,
Andrea :-)

Art pennants and more info!

Happy FriYay!! Hope you've had a great week!
Mrs. Steers has sent home an art "assignment" to be completed BY Wednesday, May 1. A pennant to be decorated by you and your family, along with a flyer will be with the kids today. After decorating, please have your child return the pennant to his/her MORNING teacher. Each class who has 100% of students return the pennant will get popsicles! :-)
The flyer also contains information regarding our GVA Art Show happening on Thursday, May 9! :-)
Green folders will come home NEXT week. We simply ran out of time, so I just decided to keep them until next week. :-)
A Look Ahead:::
Tuesday, May 21 will be our End of Year Party. Unlike other parties this year, we will have a party in BOTH classes! :-) I'll put a Sign Up Genius out in the next couple of weeks. 
Wednesday, May 22 is Field Day! More info to come!
Thursday, May 23 is the LAST DAY OF SCHOOL and a HALF DAY!
Have a great weekend!!
