Callingwood Lymburn Community Playschool June 2021 Message from the Committee Lead Wow, it’s hard to believe that we are down to the last few weeks of playschool! A huge thank you to teachers Cathey, Jeni, Lisa and both the CLCL and CLCP Parent Committee. With everyone’s hard work and dedication behind the scenes our children were able to have an amazing year! While playschool is ending for some of the kids, they are also about to start their next journey into kindergarten in the fall. With that, some of the CLCP Parent Committee is going to be saying farewell to some of its members so please contact me if you are interested in taking on a role. Wishing you all a happy and healthy summer! Thank you, Lisa Turgeon Committee Lead 2020/2021 Reminder for returning parents from CLCL: If you have a child who will be starting or returning for the 2021/2022 playschool season please be sure that you have sent in their “new” PAD form and either a void cheque or bank direct debit for to clcpadmin@callingwoodlymburn.com.

First of all, let me say thank-you for being such wonderful, supportive parents. Thank-you for entrusting your children to a classroom that you have not been able to enter and a teacher that you only get to see at the door. I can only imagine how hard this has been. Thank-you for participating in dress up days, Star of the Week, Fundraisers, and preparing crafts, playdough, doing laundry and so much more. Not only is this a very special group of children but you are a very special group of parents. June will bring lots of fun to wrap up the school year! Our class will spend lots of time playing outside, enjoying the playground and nice weather, and enjoying the friends that have been made. Our themes are camping, zoo, dads and summer. On Friday, June 4th , we will do outside and play with water (games, art, etc). There is a chance we may get wet so please bring a towel. This day is very weather dependent so if it is too cool we will do some alternate activities. While we learn about zoo animals, we will go on a virtual zoo field trip on June 9th (I wish we were actually going to the zoo, but we will make this a great day). On Monday, June 14th , the class will celebrate summer birthdays with games and cupcakes outside (Teacher Cathey will provide). If your child has a summer birthday, this will be a special day for them with choosing from the birthday box. June 18th is our last day of school. We will have a year end party/celebration/graduation. I will send out details by Friday, June 11th. I would like to include our parents, but I am waiting until closer to the date to see what the restrictions are. But whatever we will do, it will be lots of fun! The children took beautiful Graduation pictures. I will be sending home some pictures on the last day and posting them on our google classroom pictures so you can print them out. As well, I will be sending home a group picture that was taken by our photographer way back in November. Not all of our class had joined us yet, so some students and teachers are missing. A tradition at CLCP is to put together a yearbook of our special memories (which all of our class is represented in!). Thank-you Jessie for putting together our yearbooks. If you are interested in a yearbook, please let Jessie know by June 4th. Price for the yearbook is $20 and can be given to Jessie or Teacher Cathey. They are wonderful memories of your child’s adventure in preschool. It is with bittersweet emotions that we end our year…I truly have come to love your children and will miss them greatly. Yet, I am so excited for all that is in store for them in the days and years to come. Thank-you for a beautiful year. Have a wonderful summer and don’t forget to come back and visit!

I hope you have all had a great experience with Playschool. It has been such a special time for me getting to know all your wonderful children. Thank you for trusting me and the whole team behind Callingwood-Lymburn Playschool. It really does take a village. I hope to see all of you next year and for those of you moving on to kindergarten I wish you all the best, I know you will be amazing. June will be packed with celebrations, as much as we can, we have all the birthdays that we have missed this year or being held during the summer. I think birthdays are worth celebrating we sing the birthday song; they get to pick a small gift and most important wear the birthday crown! You may bring a special store bought, pre-wrapped treat to share at the end of class, outside of the school if you choose but it is not necessary. Teddy Bear Picnic: we will have our snack outside, read a book and play a game on our adventure. We will stay on school grounds but may try out a new location. For the End of the Year Celebration, I am hoping that parent(s) and family members would meet us in the park on Thursday, June 17 at 10:45 for a small celebration of the year together. It will follow any and all of the Covid protocols, but I am just not sure what those will be yet. I am so proud of all the students and families this year. It has not been an easy year for anyone. I am so impressed with everyone’s willingness to accept all the changes and it has allowed the students to grow and learn so much. Have fun this summer, enjoy the outdoors and time together. Make time to play, laugh and sing!
