Kindergarten Help

Hello Birney Families :

Friday we will be welcoming a new kindergarten class and their parents. As we all can probably remember this can be a very exciting and overwhelming time for the parents. Are there any questions/concerns that our more experienced parents feel should be addressed with the new parents?

Your input is important. Please let us know by emailing us at

Do you have old CD's? We recycle.

Do you have scratched or outdated c/d's you would like to be rid of?

We can recycle them and your PTA gets .50 cents for each c/d in the original cover and .15 cents for those without covers.

We will have a box available for drop off.

LifePlay workshops still open

Hello Parents!
We have been having a great time with camp this summer! Lots of creativity- lots of exploration - lots of fun - and lots of learning!

We still have spaces open in next week's LaughOut Loud camp where campers will explore the ins and outs of humor, and try on all things funny! It is an easy camp to come for even a day or two. Get in touch with me if your looking for some extra fun for next week.

Our Spanish week if full, but we still have space in our French week, August 15-19, call or email if you all have an interested in French. In addition to our three weekly Spanish language classes, we are also planning a French class at the studio for the fall - get in touch with me if you'd like more information on this for the fall.

Then we end the summer with a fun theatre production camp, August 29 - Sept.2, putting on the play "Mumbo Jumbo" with Ms. Ashley and Ms. Patricia as the instructors! It will be a great opportunity to use all of those great theatre skills in a fun and supportive environment.

Enjoy the last weeks of summer and we look forward to seeing your child soon at a LifePlay camp or class.
