Dear Parents,

April is here and we are “Springing” into action at The Peppermint Tree, both in the classrooms, and in our community!  We are participating in “The Budding Artists” art show at The Ocean County Library, Toms River Branch which will be on display all month.  We will be putting up the last few pieces of art during the first week of the month, and will send a note home to let you know if your child’s art is hanging in the show.

Our staff will also be participating in the STEAM Into School Readiness event, Saturday, April 29th, 9:30 – 12:00 p.m. at Hooper Avenue Elementary School, Toms River.  We hope you can attend:  This is a FREE family event that includes FREE breakfast at 9:30 a.m., and then the event begins promptly at 10:00 a.m. with a brief video for families then a fun STEAM activity (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) to do together.  Mr. Scott the Music Man will be performing for the kids, and the parents will get information on School Readiness.  It will be a GREAT morning!  RSVP to the email address: to get extra door prize tickets!

Also—mark your calendars…we are planning a “Family Planting Party”on Thursday, May 4th at 6:00 p.m. to launch our spring gardens.  More details to follow. (more…)
