SPACE STILL AVAILABLE IN FALL CLASSES - TELL YOUR FRIENDS! 

Please share your excitement and passion for Little Wonders with your friends, families, and social networks. There are still spaces in some of the classes. We appreciate you sharing the benefits of this program with others with young babies and toddlers. They can check the website for more information at https://www.littlewonders.org/.

 

NEXT BOARD MEETING - TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13 at 7:30pm

Monthly Board meetings for Little Wonders are currently virtual and are always open to interested parents or caregivers. If you would like to join us for our September meeting or any future meeting, please contact Co-Presidents Kim & Michelle at president@littlewonders.org for a meeting Zoom invitation. 

 

WANT TO JOIN OUR BOARD?

We still need to fill a few more roles on our Little Wonders Board. Are you an independent worker and a social butterfly? The Council Rep position might be well suited for you! Do you know your way around Quickbooks and love spreadsheets? Are you an accounting wizard and love numbers? You could be our next Treasurer!

 

Board members have an opportunity to see a different side of the school and help keep it running smoothly. It’s a wonderful way to give back to the community that gives so much to us as parents. If you are interested in learning more about the time commitment, benefits, and requirements of these specific roles, please email secretary@littlewonders.org. An email is not a sign of commitment, just of interest. Come join us! Next meeting will be on Tuesday, September 6th.

 

RESTAURANT FUNDRAISER COMING SOON!

Watch out for the September Little Wonders fundraising night. More details to come.
