FINAL CPR CLASS FOR SCHOOL YEAR

Our final CPR class is coming on March  28th. If you are moving on to another CO-OP school next year, you will likely need current pediatric CPR certification. Please fill out the CPR sign up to reserve your spot. Parents have 2 options: 1) Take the instructional class for $50 or 2) instructional and certification for $70. The instructor will send a link to an online course which takes about 45 minutes and must be completed prior to CPR class.

PRE-REGISTRATION IS HERE!

With registration for Summer and Fall starting on April 1, we are starting to fill Pre-Registration roles. These are leadership roles that include committee chairs and assistants to our board members, among other things. They are a bit more “time demanding” than the typical jobs, but with the right fit can be rewarding to you and extremely helpful for Little Wonders.  A perk for anyone taking on a Pre-Reg Job is that you get the class of your choice rather than going into the lottery. Check out the Pre-Reg jobs here. When you see something that interests you, contact jobs@littlewonders.org or director@littlewonders.org and we will put you in touch with the person currently in that role to find out more.  

OPEN BOARD POSITIONS

Did you know that board members get registration priority AND their annual school wash commitment is waived? Little Wonders is still looking for board members for the 2019-2020 school year! Currently we are looking to fill the following positions:

  1. Development
  2. Publicity
  3. Technology
  4. Liaison
  5. Events

Please let secretary@littlewonders.org know if you are interested in joining our wonderful board! All current board members are happy to answer your questions as well.

 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. Please Respond to the Evite.
