I hope you and yours have made some glorious memories this summer. I can not believe how fast August is flying by. The Stonehedge staff is working hard preparing the entire building for the start of the 2019-2020 school year. The second half of the month is a perfect time to start building healthy routines to prepare for September. At my house, we start going to bed and getting up at "school times." Don't worry we have a few weeks left to read some new books, visit the public library, and spend some extra time talking with one another. Last weekend, I had a proud mama moment which reminded me how important summer can be for our learning. My daughter and I were driving to camp with my 5 year old nephew. While we were driving my daughter started playing "A,B, C--I Spy" with my nephew. She told him to find something on our drive that started with an A and then she found a B object and so on. I was so proud of my little teacher in training. My nephew was so excited to talk about his understanding of our language. It reminded me how important it is to use every minute to talk about learning with our kiddos. Summer is a great time to make learning easy, breezy and fun. And, August is a great time to start preparing for the start of the year.
Our summer mailing, which includes placement, meal, and transportation information, is scheduled to go out on Wednesday, August 21st so you should receive it by that Friday or Saturday. Please don't hesitate to call the office with any questions you may have.
