BOARD MEETING - TUESDAY, APRIL 16

Still wondering what happens at our monthly board meetings? Come join us for the penultimate meeting of the 2018-19 school year to find out! Food at 6:30pm, meeting at 7pm. Email president@littlewonders.org for the address and with any questions.

END OF THE YEAR SCHOOL PICNIC - PLEASE RSVP TO EVITE

A friendly reminder that our Annual End of Year School Picnic is quickly approaching on Sunday, April 28th from 11-2pm at Beresford Park in San Mateo. Evites have been sent out to all families, so please take a moment to RSVP if you haven’t had a chance to. This final event of the year is a family affair! Bring the entire family out to Beresford Park for a great picnic. There will be children's entertainment, music and fun activities. We look forward to this fun event as a celebration and thank you to all of our families!

BOOK DRIVE FOR FAMILY CONNECTIONS

Please bring in your new or gently used books for ages 0-5 to be used in graduation bags for the children at Family Connections! We are hoping to get all our families to share the love of books and reading with others who are not as fortunate to have so many wonderful books to read and cherish. Board books are great since the children are birth-5 years old. If you have duplicate copies or some books your children are no longer interested in, please consider bringing them in for this great cause.

SPRING PHOTOS

Sheila Krakow will again be offering photo sessions the last couple of weeks of April. Sessions will begin April 25th and run through May 3rd. A special Saturday morning session will be offered on April 27th, so stay tuned for the sign-up sheet. Class photos will also be April 29-May 3 (no sign-up needed for those!).

CO-OP JOB COMPLETION FORM

As the school year is coming to a close, now is the time to fill out the co-op job completion form. We use the feedback to improve each school job; assess the number of hours each job takes; and accurately describe each job on our website so that next year’s families have clear pictures of each position. The co-op job completion form is very brief and will take about 3 minutes to complete. Please click the link below to go to the form website (or copy and paste the link into your internet browser):
