JUNE 2019

  • It’s not to too late to add to our Trike-a-thon donations. So far we have collected $550! All donations should be turned in by June 7th. 
  • The ice cream truck will be coming on Wednesdays starting June 19th. Make sure your child has $2.50 to visit the truck.
  • The first session of  swimming lessons will start on June 17th. Be sure to check the session rosters at the office for your child’s session.
  • Please be sure to send in sunscreen and/or insect repellent if you want your child to have these products applied at Pooh Corner. We must have signed permission forms for these products to be applied here. We keep these forms on the shelf at the office. These forms can give “long term” permission for applications throughout the summer but the forms MUST have the specific name of the product being used. If you decide to change the product, you must complete a new form. Forms can be found here.
