Bake Sale Tomorrow!

May 28 - 4:52PM

Dear Parents,

Don’t forget there is a Bake Sale tomorrow and Thursday!! I know that many of us get confused about the days of the week when we have a Monday holiday.

Anyone wishing to volunteer (using community service hours of course) can show up for a shift – either between 8:15 and 9:15 AM on both days, or from 2:45 to 3:45 PM on both days.

We certainly welcome and appreciate any baked donations or help attending the table.

Money made during this Bake Sale will go toward the rental of the Bouncy House for this Sunday’s Open House.

Thanks! Deb


Summer Subjects

May 22 - 1:40PM

Hello Parents,

Regarding the Summer Sunflower Camp, I have to make a final deadline for registration June 1st. At that time I will have to decide whether or not the camp will run, because as of now I only have one registration, although I hear a number of families discussing their desire to join the camp. Enrollment is directly related to whether or not I can hire the staff necessary for the program to run.

A few of our Seedlings families have expressed a desire to join the camp, although I initially made it unavailable for that age range, but now I have decided to extend the enrollment opportunities to include the Seedlings ages of 18 months to 3 years. Miss Melissa is scheduled to run that portion of the program, so you can rest assured that your children will be with their same teacher.

I have attached another copy of the program and registration form for you to fill out and get back to us immediately. I normally expect payment at the time of registration, I would rather payment wait until I make the final decision as to whether or not to run the program.

Summer is fun here at Fields of Green, and I hope many of you decide to join us!

Thank you, Deb

Reminders

May 20 - 1:36PM

Hello Families,

Remember to go into our website to look at the upcoming events on the calendar this week and next – it’s a busy time here at Fields of Green! www.fieldsofgreen.org

Most importantly, remember that Wednesday and Thursday are half days – dismissal at 11:30 promptly – due to Parent/Teacher conferences.

Speaking of busy, the ticks are real busy working on their life cycles in this area of New Jersey. We remove any ticks we see crawling on kids here at school, but please remember to check your children every single night! If you get them off soon enough, they are most likely NOT to spread lyme disease to your child. Daily monitoring is a must!

Thank you! Deb


Field Trips Coming Up

Liz Vernon, Baila’s mom, offered us the Lusscroft Farm trip recently and what is going out today – the Pizzeria trip – was arranged by Gabby’s mom, Adriana Rovetto. I want to thank these ladies for wanting to help add new learning experiences and fun times for our kids!

Also, there is a lot coming up soon – I will try to remind you all of these events before they come up – but as we all know too well, time just seems to speed up, especially at the end of the school year! Also please refer to our website calendar to help you remember and keep track of things!

Drive For the Kids

During this year's Open House on Sunday, June 2nd, as we have done for many years now, we are excited to host a Chrysler Drive for the Kids. For every person who test drives the innovative 2013 Chrysler Town & Country, Chrysler and Sussex Auto Mall will donate $10 to the school. It's a fun, easy way to raise money for Fields of Green!
