March Newsletter

Well, the month of March is upon us and we are all ready for Spring! Make sure you’re dressing your kids for a possible outing to the playground and that your extra clothes are packed and weather appropriate.

Make sure you’re up to date on all tuition fees and that you read all paperwork sent home in Backpacks!


Don’t forget Daylight Savings Time on Sunday March 8…

get ready to get up an hour earlier 😊


SCHOOL PICTURES will be here on Tuesday March 10 and Wednesday March 11. Sarah from The Studio will be here to take each student’s pictures. The kids graduating in May will have additional Graduation Picture done in a Cap and Gown provided. A composite picture will be available with all of the children and one of the whole graduating class. Sarah has done our Spring pictures for many years and always does a fabulous job! Samples of the backgrounds are available on our Facebook page and on the door at the top of the preschool stairs.


During the month of March we will study: Dr Seuss, Circus, St. Patrick’s Day, and Spring Fling. Watch for our Dr Seuss line up so that your child can dress according to the Book/theme for each day! FUN!

Our St Patrick’s Day party will be on Tuesday March 17. Kids that don’t typically attend school on Tuesdays are welcome to come on that day from 8:30-11:00! We will do crafts and try to catch that pesky Leprechaun! Please send a water bottle to school for the craft.  It can be filled or empty! 


Thanks to all of our dads for coming out and Bowling! We love to see the interaction between kids and parents or grandparents! The Vandalia Bowling alley takes good care of us and provides a great party atmosphere! You guys are all great sports!


We are amazed that we are here writing our March newsletter with only 2 more to go! We love Springtime at school but also realize that our friends going on to Kindergarten are soon leaving us and will be greatly missed… Watch our Facebook Page, Website and all newsletters and postings about special days coming up…
