DID YOU MISS THE ALL-SCHOOL MEETING?
We all know that “life happens.” If you missed the All-School Meeting, you need to work out a make-up activity with your teacher, as this was a required commitment. Options may include (but are not limited to) registering for and attending the CCPPNS Convention, attending additional parent education with a local parents club, writing a blog post on a parenting book that you have read recently, or paying an additional fee.
INTERESTED IN JOINING OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS?
Are you planning to come back to Little Wonders next year? Do you want to give back even if your little one is graduating? We want to hear about your interest! Descriptions of all of the board jobs can be found on our website, but all current board members and teachers are also happy to answer your questions. Please e-mail Steph O’Grady at email@example.com if you are interested and/or would just like more information.

CONVENTION AROUND THE CORNER...TIME RUNNING OUT TO REGISTER
If you enjoy the insightful discussion topics at Little Wonders, then you should consider this AMAZING opportunity for some bonus learning geared toward parents with young children.

The full list of workshops and vendors is now available - we think you will find that it's full of wonderful presenters and interesting and helpful topics!
