29 Leap Into the 20’s Fundraising Gala 6:00-9:00 p.m.

Hello Everyone,

Happy Valentine’s Day! Love is in bloom in the Garden this week as children have been creating wonderful art, notes and cards for their families, friends and teachers. Children of all ages have also experimented with different materials to make amazing scientific concoctions and magical love potions. It has definitely been a busy and fun filled time. We hope you all enjoy today as you spend time with loved ones and that the long weekend gives you a chance for some rest and relaxation as well.

We want to remind you that our big fundraising event is just two weeks away. Leap Into the 20’s will take place on Saturday, February 29, 2020, at the National Hispanic Cultural Center. We are excited to eat, drink and dance the night away while raising money through our silent auction and wine, whiskey and beer pulls. All proceeds will help fund our Tuition Assistance Program and teacher support. Tickets for the event are still available and we hope that many of you can join us, but if you can’t make it to the Gala, don’t fret. There are many other ways for you to join in on the fun. Our Classroom Basket Silent Auction will take place in the atrium the week of February 24th through February 28th and let me guarantee that there will be something for everyone. We have a Rainy Day Basket, a Welcome to the World Baby Basket, a Brewery Basket, a Spa Basket, a Local Shopping Basket and more. We will have Family Experiences available for sign-up as well. Family Experiences are interactive activities for children, parents, or families that will take place at a later time. Families reserve a spot for an experience and pay the office for the activity before the experience takes place. We are hosting Mom’s and Margaritas, Kids haircuts and styles, Toddlers at the Zoo and more. Be sure to look everything over and place your bids on these spectacular items in just ten short days. We can’t wait for the festivities to begin!


For our families that pick up their children at 1:00 each day:

Please remember that our other children are settling in for their naps while you are picking up your child to go home. Many of our infants and toddlers are already asleep before 1:00. We are happy for families to utilize our atrium during this pick up time, but we ask that you help your child to choose a quiet activity like books or puzzles as they play inside and that they save the running, loud voices and gross motor play with friends for outside in the courtyard. We also ask that you remind them to pick up after themselves before they leave. Thank you so much for helping our youngest friends get the undisturbed rest that they need and deserve.
