ONLINE AUCTION THANK YOU
Thank you to everyone who contributed to last weekend’s auction, either by donating goods or services or bidding on items! The auction was a terrific success--it raised nearly $5,000 for Little Wonders! Special thanks to Development Co-Chairs Nesa and Kristen for all their work putting it together!
SUMMER REGISTRATION IS OPEN
Register for in-person or virtual Summer Sessions at Little Wonders! We are adding a 2nd Threes class, and still have space in the Baby Play, Ones, and Alumni classes for both sessions. Anyone wishing to join a virtual only Baby Play should contact Mireille at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please register for summer sessions here: https://littlewondersorg.formstack.com/forms/2021_summer_registration.
BOOK DRIVE BENEFITING FAMILY CONNECTIONS
Family Connections is a community-based organization that provides free, parent participatory, play-based educational services to San Mateo County children and their families. Each year Little Wonders runs a book drive to collect bilingual books for Family Connections children to receive at their end-of-year graduation. If you would like to help in this effort, please consider ordering a bilingual book or two through Scholastic using Little Wonder’s activation code and having them shipped directly to Little Wonders. You’ll be helping Family Connections and Little Wonders at the same time! Alternatively, you can drop off bilingual books for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers at Little Wonders the first week of May.
What: Bilingual Book Drive benefiting Family Connections
When: Now through May 7
How: If ordering through Scholastic:
- Go here to see a curated list of bilingual books offered through Scholastic.
- Add books to your cart and then check-out using activation code GKC39.
- Select to have the books shipped to Mireille at Little Wonders.
Or, drop off bilingual books for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers at Little Wonders the first week of May. And thank you!
KEEPSAKES STILL AVAILABLE
Spring keepsakes are here! We are offering mugs, vases, flower pots, cookie jars, plates (round and square), cereal bowls, and tiles. Anyone still wanting to order may email email@example.com and place an order with Mireille as long as stock remains available.
Thank you to those who have stepped up to help next year! We still need a few more board members for next year! The board meets once per month and we have a lot of fun while ensuring the school runs smoothly. Our treasurer position is open and we are looking for an experienced and committed community member to fill this spot. If you know someone, perhaps a grandparent or relative with accounting experience, that would like to be involved please share this opportunity. If you are interested in joining or would like more information, please fill out this form or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
