Family Involvement: An Important Part of The Peppermint Tree Experience

March 7th, 2013 by Valerie Frost-Lewis

Research has proven that when the family is involved in a child’s schooling, there is a greater chance for sustained school success throughout a child’s life.  So, we like to provide many opportunities for our families to participate at The Peppermint Tree.


Today, the Early Learners Class had a Family Gathering, where parents and grandparents made Spring Kites with the children, and then they made ice cream treats together, too.


In the Preschool Class today, parents and grandparents came in with their family pets to provide hands on learning to enhance the children’s interest in learning about taking care of animals.


Next Friday, March 15, we invite all of our Families to enjoy our FREE fun “Family Game Night”.  The event will run from 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., and it will encompass the entire school building.  Games will be set up in all the classrooms, and parents will have the chance to play them together with their children, and other families, too.  Parents are bringing snacks to enjoy, and each child will get a prize to take home at the end of the night.


On a weekly basis, we offer “My Parent and Me at The Peppermint Tree” Music and Movement classes, held on Saturday mornings at 10:30 a.m.  You can find out more about this fun class for infants through four year olds, along with a parent or grand parent at:


We hope you will join in all the family fun we offer at The Peppermint Tree!
