I think it's safe to say that spring has arrived! Hopefully, our colder days are behind us and we continue to see warmer weather. We can never be too sure in New Mexico!
Shining Stars lottery applications are available on the parent board for the 2017/2018 school year. You may also download them from the SSPS web page. Children are chosen via lottery and if accepted, Shining Stars will contact you by phone or email.
Weather permitting, we are planning an Easter egg hunt on Wednesday, April 12th and a picnic on Thursday, April 13th. Please check your child's classroom newsletter below for plans and activities taking place.
Although the afternoons are usually warm, our mornings can still be pretty chilly. Please bring a light jacket that we can put on and take off as needed. All the children will be spending more time outside as the weather warms. Please be sure your child has weather appropriate clothing, sunscreen, hats, etc. in their backpack or cubby.
Spring pictures are still scheduled for May 3rd. MJ Thomas Photography has assured me that pictures will be ready within a week of being taken. I will send out more information as it get closer.
Library is every Monday. Please remember to return your child's library books by Friday of each week.
Ms. Solana will continue to volunteer on Thursdays from 3:00-5:00. She is here to help and support the teachers while engaging with the children by reading, playing, and singing.
Thank you for sharing your children with us! We love watching them grow and their little personalities emerge!
I'm always happy to help. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Happy April everyone!
Ms. Mia and I (Ms. Renee) hope you all had a wonderful spring break. We are excited to be back and are looking forward to tackling some cool topics.
Starting off the month of April, we will be focused on Easter, bunnies, chicks, eggs, and everything pastel!!! We will host a little egg hunt on the 12th of April. We will decorate real eggs on the 11th for this event! If you’d like to donate some eggs, candy filled and or real uncooked eggs that would be fabulous! The deadline to turn those in is Friday April 7th. Thank you!
We will transition from Easter to Spring!!!! Flowers, weather, and colors that the season brings. The last week of the month, we will continue with spring; focusing on plants and flowers. We will be planting some flowers outside in our garden box on Wednesday April 26th so please dress your little ones in something they can get dirty.
As always, please feel free to come in the class and look around, we have caterpillars getting nestled in their cocoons and our family tree has photo leaves up. Our white board is always updated with a new and inspiring quote, and a calendar with our weekly plans on it. Along with two blue art boards covered with your child’s creativity.
- All the kids agree their teachers are silly- they laugh at us daily!
- The Friday before Spring Break the leprechaun came to visit the kids while they were asleep and left gold coins for them.
- Their favorite center in the class room is the sensory table.
- They all love food projects!
- No school on the 14th
- Donations always accepted and appreciated; art supplies, disinfectant wipes, disinfectant spray, paper plates for art projects, etc.
