NEW DISCUSSION CYCLE: FOCUS ON PARENTS
We try very hard to switch up the focus of our discussions between children and parents. This coming cycle will focus on parents, with Love Languages for the AM classes and Parenting on the Same Page for the PM and Evening classes. Wednesday PM will have a discussion on Gender. Staff will post appropriate handouts to Konstella. Do take a look!
MANDATORY ALL SCHOOL MEETING THIS THURSDAY
Parking is very limited so please try to carpool and use street parking. Parking lot on corner of San Mateo Dr. and Tilton is also an option.
REMINDER: PLEASE RSVP TO ALL SCHOOL MEETING EVITE
A friendly reminder that the Evite for the All School Meeting was sent last week and if you haven’t already, please make sure to respond to the Evite for planning purposes. The All
School meeting is Little Wonders’ mandatory parent-only annual business meeting that will give parents an opportunity to network with other parents offering services, meet the staff and board members, understand our annual budget and fundraising efforts, and meet our outreach partners. We will also have a fabulous guest speaker! NOTE: One representative from each Little Wonders family is required to attend the All School Meeting. If you cannot attend this meeting you must email your teacher ASAP to discuss make-up options.
HAMILTON NIGHT RECAP
Thank you to everyone who came out to see Hamiton!! Thanks to YOU we were able to raise $4,487.00 for Little Wonders!! What a wonderful night spent together at the theater, supporting local artists and our school. Events Chair, Jenna Hesse, should also be recognized as this was an added event which she took on fully with such enthusiasm. We also owe our gratitude to Melissa Basso, who helped facilitate this event. This community makes fun things happen!!
PLEASE CONSIDER JOINING OUR 2020-2021 BOARD
Are you planning to come back to Little Wonders next year? Do you want to give back even if your little one is graduating? Please plan to stop by the Board table at the Parent Networking portion of our ASM and talk to our current Board Members. Come see how you can utilize your leadership and organizational skills to help Little Wonders.

TIPS FOR PARENTING WHILE SICK
For most of us, at some point we will have to parent our young children while dealing with our own illness. Not ideal, but our latest blog has a bunch of helpful suggestions and resources for support if you find yourself in this unfortunate situation. We even include tips to help prevent this situation from happening in the first place (or again)!
