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!

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

May 15 - 12:57PM

Dear Parents,

I realize that we are jamming a few field trips in together, but they just all happened to come up at the same time. 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!

Some reminders are as follows:

  1. Tomorrow – Field trip for Elementary Students to Kadampa Buddhist Temple.
  2. Friday – Field trip for ALL students to Lusscroft Farm.
  3. Monday – Field trip for ALL students to Paesano’s Pizzeria.

Drive For the Kids

May 8 - 9:03AM

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! Last year we raised $1200!!!

Visit the Drive for the Kids Facebook page www.drive4kids for more info on how you can help raise money for our school!

Swimming Tomorrow!

May 6 - 2:14PM

Hello Parents,

Tomorrow begins our swim program. I have 6 kids so far for Sprouts and they will run the program. I will get costs out to you tomorrow and you have until the end of the week to pay.

They told me today that we can extend the program to our Seedlings if any wish to join, so if you are interested, please reply to this email and we will allow you to join us, thus lowering the costs for the program. The more that join, the less you pay.

Sprouts/Seedlings time is 10 to 11 AM at the YMCA in Hardyston. If your child attends here tomorrow – you can either drop them off for school and have them attend until you pick them up between 9:30 and 9:45, or simply meet at the YMCA.

Elementary kids will be leaving here between 12:30 and 12:45, so any drivers should be here at 12:30 so we can organize our carpooling.

Any questions, please ask! Deb

Swim Program

May 1 - 3:00PM

Good afternoon!

Despite the fact that we are completely consumed by the play tomorrow and Friday, I still need to know who is interested in the Swim Program at the YMCA. So far our Sprouts program won’t run unless we get more people to sign up. If you plan on taking your child, but haven’t yet returned the form to me, let me know today by email and I will include you in the count so I can let them know what we’re doing.

As they say in show biz....Break a leg!! See you all tomorrow at 9:30 at the church. Remember, no extended care and do not come to school – only to the church tomorrow!
