March will be bringing in great weather and a ton of busy activities. We will be having a Parent Education/Literacy Awareness Night on Thursday, March 3rd from 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm. There will be a taco bar for parents and pizza for children. Child care is provided by the UCD teachers. The event is free for currently enrolled UCD families and members of the UUMC. We will start the evening by having a parenting question and answer forum during our meal. This will allow parents to ask questions about child development, guidance and discipline, activities to do with your child at home or any other early childhood related question that you may want answers! After we eat, the parents will join their children in the classrooms for a fun literacy activity that is based off of Dr. Seuss books. March is Dr. Seuss' birthday month! We will also begin our reading challenge on the night of the event and it will continue through the month of March. Please RSVP for our parent education night by Tuesday, March 1st.
WU will be having their SPRING BREAK on the week of March 14 - 18, 2016. UCD will still be in session during this week. We will be closed on March 25th for parent teacher conferences. Keep an eye on the parent folders for your scheduled conference time. Feel free to call the office if you have a time preference during that day. You should get your scheduled conference time by Friday, March 11th.
This year UCD will be doing our Easter celebration a little different than in the past. We are joining UUMC in their Easter egg hunt. We will not do an Easter celebration during our normal school hours. Please plan on joining us for our Easter egg hunt on Saturday, March 26th at 11 am. We will also be taking donations of pre-filled eggs the week before the egg hunt. We will send out more information as Easter gets closer!
Last, but not least, as the weather begins to get better please remember that your children will be spending at least an hour outside each day. This means that we will need parents to bring in sunscreen, water bottles, jackets, appropriate playground shoes, and to check their child's extra clothes to make sure they are weather appropriate (and that they still fit!).
