BOARD RECRUITMENT

We are still actively looking for folks who are interested in joining the Board next year. Time is running short to sort this out, so we hope that anyone who is curious or interested will stop by our Meet and Greet at Little Wonders TODAY (Friday) 4-6 PM (Kids welcome.) If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to current President Shannon Adams-Ferris directly: president@littlewonders.org.

BUDGET

As promised during the All School Meeting, attached is the budget for the 2018-2019 school year. This file will also be available under Konstella uploads should you wish to reference it in the future.

MARCH SCHOOL WASH - RESCHEDULED

The previously scheduled March School Wash was rescheduled to March 9th. The new date has been sent out via Evite to all those that had registered or were assigned to this School Wash hosted by the Wednesday AM class. If you have further questions, would like to attend this wash, or want to reschedule your registration to another wash please email facilities@littlewonders.org with details.

FINAL OPTIONAL NIGHT CLASS - SIBLINGS AND BIRTH ORDER

Come enjoy a fun and informative session with Teacher Maggie on Siblings and Birth order.  This will be held on Tuesday March 19th from 7:30-9:30 in the LW classroom. Teacher Maggie will cover ideas for preparing for a coming baby, how to minimize sibling conflicts and the effect birth order may have on your family dynamics. Attending this class can count as make up for missing the All School Meeting. Evites went out this week.

BLOG UPDATE

Our beloved Director, Mireille, shared some of her thoughts about her time at Little Wonders and her personal thoughts on parenting in our latest blog post.

SOCIAL MEDIA REQUEST

The social media team is working on a series of posts, ‘Parents of Little Wonders’ - similar to Humans of New York, for those familiar.  This social media campaign will help our community get to know each other better, in addition to showcasing to local families who are interested in joining LW what the program is all about.  We’re looking for parents who’d like to be interviewed and featured in the series. Please email Jessica Kane if you’re interested.

GRATITUDE CORNER - CHIPOTLE FUNDRAISER

We met our goal!! Chipotle will be sending us a check for $162.21, which is 33% of the sales (just under $500) brought in by us/our supporters. Thank you all so much for dining in support of Little Wonders.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

Overheard in discussion in Wed PM:

Parent (looking for images for a family vision board): "I forgot how much I loved cooking magazines. Here is a simple weeknight menu for 2 -- four courses....."

Other parents in discussion: *burst out laughing at the idea of having that kind of time anymore*
