Monthly Newsletter

May 2024

Welcome to the month of May!

 

Spring is a magical time on the farm! The children are enjoying being outside for longer periods of time and traveling back to the farm in the mornings!

 

Plants, flowers, butterflies, ducklings, bunnies, kittens, lambs, chicks, piglets… our children experience “hands on” how every living thing in God’s world needs food, water, and lots of love in order to grow. Self esteem is nurtured when a child feels needed and loved. By building self esteem they experience pride in the living things they help to care for at school and at the farm. 

  Animal Sign-Out is Back!

 

Animal Sign Out will begin on May 1st and continue through June 6th. Animal sign-out is a great opportunity to extend the concept of care and responsibility into your home. Sign out an animal in our Sign-Out Book in the Center Hallway. When you pick up your child simply drive back to the Barn to pick up your overnight visitor complete with cage and food. Please return your animal to the farm by 9:00 a.m. the following morning. We encourage all families to sign out an animal for an evening. It’s a wonderful experience! 

National Teacher Appreciation
Week is May 6-10

 

Let your child’s teachers know how much they are appreciated for all their hard work. A simple note or kind words are wonderful!

 

We have been blessed with an extraordinary staff here at Real Life whom we truly appreciate!!!

Last Day of School Farm Party-
Friday, June 7th!

 

To celebrate the end of our school year Farmer Don and Farmer Aaron have invited all families and their children to join us on Friday, June 7th for FARM DAY! We will meet back at the farm at 9:30 a.m. The children will receive a hayride, pony ride and interact with the baby animals. If your child normally attends on Friday they will go back to the farm with their class. If your child does not normally attend on Friday we welcome you to join us for this fun filled day and stay with your child. BROWN BAG IT! Everyone should pack a “brown bag lunch” on this day. Remember to pack a juice box. No nut products please. The farm trip will last until approximately 12:00. All children who normally attend Real Life on Fridays will then travel back up to the school for their rest time. You may pick up your child at their regular time on this day. 

Happy Spring!

Ms. Mary Ann, Ms. Sara  & the Real Life Staff
