PDO I April Newsletter


Welcome Spring! We hope all of you had a wonderful spring break with your families. We are happy to be back and excited to enjoy some outdoor playtime with the nice warm days to come.

At the beginning of March we enjoyed stringing Fruit Loop necklaces, dot painting rainbows and making shamrock headbands to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. We counted shamrocks, talked about the color ‘green” and read The Night Before St. Patrick’s Day too. We played with play dough and painted at the easel as well.

As April arrives we will make kites and paint Easter eggs. We will finger paint ducks, read books about ducks, sing the “Five Little Ducks” and “The Duck with the Feather on Its Back” along with some other spring songs.

We look forward to hearing Jo Ho the storyteller on April 24th, as she tells the story, “These Boots are Made for Talkin”. Remember if this is not a date that your child is normally at school, we would love for you to join us with your child.

Happy birthday to Tagg Ensminger, who turned two in March. We have quite a number of children celebrating birthdays during the month of April. Happy birthday to Sloane Bailey, Olivia Denno, Halen Major, Johnny O’Brien, Drew Slocum, Annie Wittenborn and Collin Zahner. Your children love to wear the birthday crown and share treats to celebrate with their classmates. If you would like to send treats on or close to their special day please let us know in advance.

Congratulations to Tommy Bohnen, Tagg Ensminger, and Oliver Felix who are now big brothers and to Olivia Denno who is now a big sister!!!!

We hope all of you have a blessed Easter weekend with your families!

Ms. Nancy F., Ms. Denece, Ms. Nancy D., and Ms. Brandy
