March 2018 NEWSLETTER
MARCH IS PARENT PARTICIPATION MONTH!
Please don’t be put off by the title and do plan to volunteer your time and talent with us. Parent Participation Month has become a tradition here at RAP and I hope you are planning what you can do. We are a good audience so read us a story, teach us a song, exercise with us, tell us about your job or your hobby, do a craft or even cook with us. We have a kitchen available to use. Just sign up! You may plan to stay the whole day or for only part, but please spend some time with us. If you are stuck for an idea I can help.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
I would like to thank those of you who supported me in our “Gifts of Love” project. Together, with my family and friends, we raised $600.00 for Special Olympics New York. Your kindness and generosity truly touched my heart. Please know that I am very grateful. If you did not yet get a chance to donate, but would still like to, you can go to the web page www. polarplunge.net and find my page Suzy Cortellini. It will be up for the next 3 months.
On Wednesday, March 21 please join the teachers for dinner at Bill Grays! 15% of your purchase goes to our school scholarship fund! The teachers will be there from 4:30 – 7:30. Bring your families and friends.
I am hoping to start incubating chicken eggs in March. So – with a little luck –
we should have baby chicks. If your child talks about incubators, chicken charts,
and brooders this is what they mean.
A great big THANK YOU to Dr. Marino and dental assistant, Crissy Vicaretti both RAP alumni, for coming back to RAP to teach us all about our teeth and how to take good care of them. They also provided us with new toothbrushes, toothpaste and a timer. Now we can really brush every morning and especially every night. “Two times a day for two minutes.” Thank you Dr. Marino!
Wish list item of the month – nothing. Thank you so much for your generous donations. We are all set until the end of the year.
