The Goddard School“Shops All Around”

Your child (ren) will be learning about different kinds of shops around their neighborhood and/or town during the month of May.

News to know:

1. Teacher Appreciation Week: We will be celebrating our amazing teachers all week long next week May 5 – 9. Gifts and treats will be provided by the front office all week long. If you would like to recognize your child’s teachers in any way, we have designated Thursday as parent’s day to show their appreciation. Attached to this newsletter is a paper flower. We are asking you to write something nice about your child’s teachers on the flower and return to the office. We will then be displaying the flowers around their classroom doors.

2.Social Media Policy: Now that you are receiving pictures from our new Tadpoles program on a daily basis; I wanted to take a moment to remind you of our Social Media Policy that you signed when you enrolled at Goddard.

Beginning next week we will no longer be distributing paper Daily Activity Reports. If you are not receiving electronic emails from Tadpoles, please stop in the office to ensure we have your proper email. Beginning in June, Parent Newsletters will be emailed to your thru Tadpoles.

Oh! that we two were Maying Down the stream of the soft spring breeze; Like children with violets playing, In the shade of the whispering trees.”
