The Urban Arts Academy will be accepting any unneeded art and building supplies you may have around the house during our Takin it to the Streets event. Useful supplies: yarn, buttons, cloth, tin cans, tools, wood, glue, paper, paints, brushes, hot glue guns, etc... If you have items around the house that you aren't using and you want to find a home where they will get used, please bring them Thursday, May 22 to our end of the year celebration. There will be a receptacle with a sign for donations. Thank you and hope to see you there!

Summer Preschool Camps

Summer Preschool Camps are filling quickly! Print-It, week 7, is now closed. We are excited about the huge response we have received for our camps. What a fun summer this will be!

A Message From Lisa

Mondays at preschool have been focused on nature, bugs, water, and frogs this session. We have been preparing for our class video of 5 Green and Speckled Frogs. We will continue this nature focus as we watch for the many changes and new growth that Spring will bring to our environment.

We are in the middle of a clay project. The children enjoyed going down to the clay room and getting dirty as they began the work on their projects a few weeks ago.

We will have show and tell this coming Monday, May 5. Your child is invited to bring an item to show the class during our circle time.
