Happy Leprechaun Day! We had so much fun with you all! Leprechaun Day is one of our ‘high holy days’ here at The Garden. These special days throughout the school year build lifelong memories. Donna’s daughter, Samantha, had her ‘gold’ on her dresser all through her school years and college years and even took it to Senegal with her childhood stuffy when she served with the Peace Corps. It’s now going around the country in their retro RV. We hope you hold fast to these memories as well. Our next big event is next weekend, our All-School Spring Egg Hunt! Please RSVP online and in the gazebo and bring one dozen hard boiled dyed eggs for each of your ‘hunters’ to the school before Friday afternoon so that the bunny can hide the eggs for our wonderful egg hunt Saturday morning. The bunny can use some  helpers! Please consider volunteering to help hide eggs when you RSVP.



The teachers so enjoyed our parent teacher conferences with our Ladybug families. It is so wonderful to work as a team with these little Gardeners. The teachers always like to speak with our parents and learn a little bit more about all of the family dynamics. Everyone did a great job of coordinating our conferences – big thank you to Brin!- and signing on on time – we are excited to watch these little bugs grow at The Garden for the next few months before they graduate to become Crickets! How we loved our Leprechaun Day tricks! Thank you to all our guests for joining us for this fun day! After our party, the Ladybugs worked on our Bunnies for our Egg Hunt décor, and read some fun Leprechaun stories. We tried to catch some quick news from each of our bugs and worked further on our spring Art Show project.


Our Crickets had a fun week! We welcomed our new friend, Kennedi! Kennedi joined us on Monday with a bang! It feels like she has been here all along! Welcome Dani and Kevin when you see them at the gazebo. We had a nice time this week, making Leprechaun hats and reading Leprechaun stories. The students made stamper books based on emotion cards – choose three emotions, use them in the leprechaun story. We started making our beautiful painted eggs to use as décor for our Egg hunt in just one week! Oh my! How we loved our Leprechaun Day celebration with our Crickets – You guys showed up with your tricks this morning! Thank you so much for joining us.


Honeybees, wow! Can you believe that we are here? We are at the point of the school year where we culminate our nursery rhyme recitations, singing songs in Cricket class, and all of our mini reports in the Honeybee class – to Our World Culture Reports!? What a brave group of Honeybee girls kicked us off with Cali presenting Switzerland, Mira presenting Australia and Ada presenting Italy. They each did a fabulous job of setting the bar high for these presentations. Thank you to Cali, Mira and Ada’s parents for your help as well. We hope you enjoy watching the video of your child’s report. They did an awesome job! We had fun decorating our favorite animal drawings for the art show, started our self-portraits for the art show, and had fun working with patterns to decorate our Egg Hunt Carrots. We practiced writing our names in upper- and lower-case letters and we clapped out the syllables of all our names at circle time. While we were doing this activity, we were excited to learn how many of our honeybees could read the names of their classmates. These kiddos are certainly getting Kindergarten ready!

We so enjoyed our Leprechaun Day with our Honeybees. The tricks were a little bit trickier, and the circle of grownups was a little bit sweeter, knowing that it is our last with these kiddos. We hope you had fun finding gold and will hold on to these memories for a long time. These moments in time are so precious. We are thrilled to be a part of them with you.

We hope you have a fantastic weekend and enjoy the beautiful spring weather. Next weekend is the All School Spring Egg Hunt!
