September’s Avenida Sirio Newsletter

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

Thank you to everyone who joined us for Drama Night and our Family Potluck! The children and families seemed to really have an enjoyable evening!

September’s Family Event is our Open House, which will be held on Thursday, September 22nd from 5:45 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. We will start the evening with pizza and drinks for dinner and have a presentation by Maggie McKiernan about Child-Centered Environments and the Importance of Play. Ms. Maggie has spent the last two months working with staff at Y.E.S. to create child-centered environments in the classrooms and helping plan meaningful activities throughout the day. (The Y.E.S. Staff will take your children into a classroom and make sure they eat dinner so that you are able to listen to the presentation.) After her presentation, she and I will be available to answer any questions that you have and the remainder of the evening will consist of typical activities that the children do throughout the day in your child’s classroom that you and your child can enjoy together.
