Happy Mother’s Day! I hope everyone has been able to spend quality time loving on their families this weekend. Take note of important events happening in our GCS community this May.

**Your child was sent home with spring photos.  You are not obligated to purchase any.  If you want them, there is a sheet inside from the company indicating the prices per page. The company asks you to return any photos you do not wish to purchase and pay for the ones you want.

**The class photo is for you to keep for free.

**There is a Mother’s Day craft in a photo package for you from your child.

Classroom Supplies

As the year winds down, we are beginning to run low on classroom supplies. Our class needs baby wipes, Lysol lemon wipes and Kleenex. If anyone can send in a package or two, we would greatly appreciate it!
