Wacky Wednesdays!

March 8th, 2017|

With the promise of Spring getting closer each day, we want to break the blah of Winter and have some fun during the month of March, and thus we are announcing the coming of “Wacky Wednesdays!” Each Wednesday during the month of March will be designated as a different, wacky and fun theme for the day (hat day, crazy socks, crazy hair…). Each class is choosing their own Wednesday themes, so make sure you ask your child’s teacher for their specific themes or check for a posted list in each room.

The Gifting Tree

December 12th, 2016|

If you would like to give a gift to Discovery Days this Christmas season be sure to check out the Gifting Tee in the main entrance! Each class has compiled their Christmas “wish list” and these items will be written on paper ornaments and hung on the tree. Take an ornament from the tree and after you have purchased the gift, wrap it and put it under the tree using the ornament as its tag. Many items are specific, as we are working hard to focus on our philosophy of teaching. If you don’t want to buy a specific gift you can look for a gift card tag on the tree instead.

All gifts will be delivered to each room and opened the week of Christmas! 🙂
