NEW CLASS TIME! Head Start will continue having class as usual throughout the summer. Based on conversations with you all, we will be moving our class time to start at 10:30 and end at 12:30 starting Monday June 28th. I will edit the class teams invitations and the new times will be emailed to you next week. Our schedule will be the same, with 30 minute sessions and 15 minute breaks in-between.
GRADUATION! Later in the summer we will have a graduation celebration for our class friends going to kindergarten.
MUTE! Also, thank you so much for all of the help you give in getting your children to the class. Please remember to mute the tablet if there is conversation in the room, and help your child know how to turn her voice back on. If I mute your tablet, I cannot turn your voice back on!
I appreciate you all so much!
