Good Day!  Today’s blog is about keeping parents informed.

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR SWIMMER IS DRESSED IN CLOTHES/SHOES THAT ARE COMPATIBLE WITH INDEPENDENT DRESSING AND UNDRESSING.

FARM WEDNESDAY: Rain is predicted, but if the weather cooperates, it’s the older kid group!

SHORT READ CHILD GUIDANCE ARTICLE:

“Research shows that what leads children to become responsible, resilient, moral citizens, with emotional accountability is not being punished. Instead, it is receiving empathy, unconditional love,  being involved, and respected. In other words, when children make a mistake, mess up, break things, say something obscene, they don’t learn from pain or shame but they do need us to help them find their way.” For the full article, check out:

Have a great day!
