Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!
I think we can all agree, that at The Children's House we have the best classroom staff in the whole wide world! Thank you to our parents and board members for all the ways you have offered support and appreciation for our faculty and staff this week and always. Appreciation is also being shared through beautiful messages posted to our Gratitude Padlet.

Updated! Grounds Work Bee, May 20, all day
Many hands make light work! You can help keep our campus beautiful by signing up now and showing up on May 20. We need help with the following: remove vines, add limbs and logs to the playground, spread wood chips, plant, and transplant trees, remove autumn olive and mulberry, and more!
