DISCOVERY CENTER GAZETTE
THIS MONTH: Our theme this month is "All About Me/Back to School". We will say hello to our new and returning friends, learn school rules, and get to know our classrooms and schedules. We'll have fun learning about the 5 senses, the human body, and what makes us - us! We'll have some hands-on art projects and activities, and explore the playground while we practice our large motor skills. Soccer Shots will begin this month, and our King County Library Bus will resume the first Friday of each month. Hope you all had a great summer, and we look forward to seeing you again in the fall for a wonderful new school year!

Cubby Check: Please check your child's cubby box to make sure they have at least 2 changes of clothes, including socks and underwear, and that it's weather and age appropriate. (Some children may have outgrown their clothes over the summer, since they are getting so big so fast!)
