Jaguars Hope to Say Goodbye to Winter

March 27, 2015

Dear Jackson Families,

Spring break has arrived - someone just needs to remind Mother Nature of this fact!  Here’s hoping today’s snow is the last one for the season!

Depending on your family’s schedule for next week, it can be a week filled with relaxation, travels, or events.  For some families, there is a large amount of coordinating childcare or activities with the children home all week.  It can be a nice chance to catch-up with your child on some of their interests or hobbies, as well as to integrate many of the skills they have been learning at school.  If you engage your child in some crafts, they can practice some of the art skills they have learned.  Also, you can spend time baking some tasty treats.  With the measuring of ingredients, that can be a fun way to practice certain math skills.  Depending on the weather, gardening can be a fun chance to get outdoors and learn about plants and their habitats.  Finally, a good family game time is typically a hit with kids of all ages. 

Our great Elmhurst Library can be a nice spot for some relaxing reading and writing activities, as well!  Whether you are staying close to home or traveling far away, have a safe, wonderful week.  Classes will resume on the morning of Monday, April 6th

Have a great spring break week!
Ryan D. Anderson
