Farewell
By: Colleen Christensen
The Dance of the Cosmos celebration has marked the end of the school year every year since the school’s inception in 1984. Obviously, I was looking forward more...

Other Notes:

Carrine PomaranskiThe Eileen Mikulski Exemplary Volunteer Award
In acknowledgement of the spirit of volunteerism first exemplified at The Children’s House by Eileen Mikulski, this esteemed award is presented to Carrine Pomaranski for her 15 years of selfless work for our school community. Thank you, Carrine!

Annual Fund
We are happy to report that our annual fund has reached $145,298. This includes $38,745 in tuition reimbursements that you, our families, donated back to the school during this most challenging time. Thank you! In addition, our raffle and online gala earned $24,559. If you haven’t given yet, it is not too late. Our fiscal year ends June 30. When you give, your name is included among our list of donors in our annual report - having your name on the list each year shows our greater community just how much our school means to our families. Donate here.

Meals on Wheels - Volunteer Opportunity
March 13 was the last time our school delivered meals to the 10 people on route 43. Due to COVID-19, Meals on Wheels changed their protocol to limit the number of people interacting with their clients. Because our children were a bright light in the lives of these individuals, Virginie Kanner, TCH Parent Volunteer, invites you to mail handmade cards. If you would like to help spread cheer on behalf of TCH, please contact Virginie at vykanner@gmail.com.

Summer 2020
We’ll see you on June 15th!  Please check out our Covid-19 Preparedness and Response Plan here, and as always, contact Kim Gallagher with questions.

COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan
Check out our reopening overview here. Please keep in mind this is a fluid page that is subject to change as  guidelines change. Check back often for the latest updates.

The Children’s House Marathon Team
The final numbers are in! The "by foot" crew traveled 1677 miles in May. The "by bike" peddled 1080 miles in 17 days and were gaining quickly on the "by foot" group. I am tremendously proud of all 95 participants. I hope you have started a new habit or reinforced an existing one. We covered over 100 marathons of distance last month. Thank you very much to everyone for doing this, I hope it was fun. Have a great summer and fingers crossed we'll be together when we cover more distance in the fall.  

Parent Business Directory
Did you know there is a directory of TCH family-owned businesses in the Parent Portal? If you own a business and are not listed, please let us know by completing this Google form. The harsh economic impact of COVID-19 is just starting to be realized. Please support TCH family-owned businesses. 

TCH Facebook Community
In an effort to connect our school community even more, a private Facebook group, The Children’s House Community has been created. Please join to share ideas and swap items. The Children's House is a certified Green School. Having a way to give extra life to items your children outgrow helps support this initiative. You may post items that you need, want to sell, trade, or give-away. Please invite other TCH parents.
