DISCOVERY CENTER GAZETTE
THIS MONTH: Our theme this month is "Solar System/St. Patrick's Day". We'll focus on the planets, stars, comets, and meteors. We'll be making planet mobiles, eating "out of this world" snacks, and discovering what it means to be an astronaut in outer space. We'll learn the "Planets" song, and be able to tell you some of the constellations. We will celebrate St. Patrick's Day with fun art projects, songs, stories and a visit from the elusive leprechaun! We are soooo looking forward to the start of spring this month!
Tuition Payments: Payments are due on the 1st or the 1st and 15th if you'e paying twice a month. A $25 late fee will be added to your account on the 6th and/or 16th for late payments. Please see our Parent Handbook for our payment policy. Let us know if you have any questions.
"In-House" Field Trip: The Kirkland Fire Department will be coming here to give us a look at a fire engine, and to tell us about paramedics and fire fighters. Exact date is yet to be determined. As always, we appreciate these brave men and women who serve in our community, and will welcome them any time they can come for a visit!
Miss Parveen on vacation: Miss Parveen, of the Seagulls class, will be going on vacation from March 14th to April 30th. Miss Maria, of the infant/toddler/school age class, will be subbing. Miss Maria is familiar with all of the children, and looks forward to being able to spend this time with them. Miss Parveen will return on May 1st.
