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 from April 8th – April 29th. (Please understand that there is not enough room in the display to show art from every student in the school, and some children have chosen to bring art home instead of submitting their work for the art show. Once the display is up, we will send a note home in your child’s backpack if their work is hanging in the Toms River Library.)
Our staff will also be participating in the Ocean County Children’s Festival event, Saturday, April 13th, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at Toms River Library. We hope you can attend: This is a FREE family event that requires no advance registration. The theme is “Full STEAM Ahead to Celebrate Children”, and will offer lots of family friendly Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM) activities, as well as information and entertainment. There will be a “Mad Science” presentation as a finale to the festival, from 11;30 a.m. – Noon. This will also be a great opportunity to view the artwork we, and other preschools in Ocean County, have on display in the library.
We hope your family can join us! (more…)
