Our summer students enjoyed a visit from Clarissa,
a llama from Leslie Lane Llamas, La Vernia, TX.
After hearing stories and learning fun facts
about this lovely animal, everyone who wanted to got
up close and personal with Claire.
She is so soft and gentle, and loves to give nuzzles.
Besides providing wonderful learning experiences
to preschools and nursing homes, they also
are available for hire at birthday parties, weddings, etc.
Thanks, Leslie Llamas, for visiting!

Theme: What a Wonderful Year!
Monday is Acorn Water/Mud Day at 2:30 on the playground. Please bring your child to school (regular time) in his/her swimsuit and wearing water shoes or old tennis shoes (no flip flops, ground is slippery when wet) and with sunscreen/bug spray applied. Also send 2 towels, labeled with names, one for drying and one for sitting on in the car.
Please note, as the playground will be VERY wet from the morning water day, we will be starting our day INSIDE, with drop off at the big red brick porch. Our water day will start about 2:30 if you would like to join us for a fun afternoon!
On Tuesday, The Red Apples who will be attending the Acorn Kindergarten will have a tour of the Kindergarten classroom given by current kindergarteners.
There is no lunch bunch on Thursday. Thursday is also our last music day with Mindy.
On Friday each child can bring a show & tell item. We will send home a paper bag with each child to be brought back on Friday with their show & tell.
Also on Friday we will start the year the way we started it…. wear red!!!!!!
Thanks for a great year. Have a wonderful summer!
