June 2017 Newsletter
June is a big month for us! It marks the end of another school year at The Learning Center of Hopkinton. Please join us for our annual Preschool graduation and Awards ceremony on Thursday, June 15th promptly at 5:30.
We will be having a Pirate theme this year. Kids can dress in any Pirate type clothing. Children in the Little Tykes room are asked to be picked up at 5:15 and are welcome to stay, so their teachers may participate in the ceremony.
The toddler classrooms will be walking in procession right before the preschoolers as we begin the ceremony. Toddler parents are asked to be available to collect their child before the ceremony begins. Families can bring in their chairs and set them up any time after 5:00 pm. We look forward to seeing all of our families at this wonderful event. Parking for the event will only be available across the street. If you are unable to attend the event please make sure you pick up before 5:15. All teachers participate with the children and will be unavailable in the classrooms after 5:30.
Classroom Teachers Update
Starting this month a few of our teachers will be switching classrooms. This gives them an opportunity to experience other age groups and help with children that stay back from field trips and children transitioning into new classrooms. Heather will be leaving for maternity leave and Sarah will be moving. We are so happy for Heather. Sarah will be missed as she was a valuable part of our TLC family.

As we jump into June and our class gets ready to graduate we will be practicing our songs every day. Get your eye patches and pirate hats ready for our Pirate themed graduation on June 15th. This month’s themes include: Father’s Day, Graduation prep, summertime and farm life. Our first field trip to Davis Farm Land is June 27th and we will be going to Hopkinton State on the 29th. Make sure you have your summer guides so you are aware of what the need for each trip.
This month we will sadly be saying goodbye to Miss Sarah. She will be greatly missed and wish her all the best!

Now that we zoomed past May and right into June, let’s take a look back and see what kept Small Fries so busy! Small Fries enjoyed becoming an artist each day of the week and learning how to appreciate art in different ways! We also enjoyed learning about Zoo Animals and enjoyed making gifts for our mommy’s! We hope all the Mother’s enjoyed their gifts and had a wonderful Mother’s Day! We continue to learn our colors and shapes and sing our ABC’s and 123’s. Small Fries love going on bear hunts during circle and finishing it off with some dance moves!
Our themes for next month are:
