May 20, 2020 Red Robin School Greetings & Inspiration from Miss Sheryl
Dear Red Robin Families,
Oh my goodness! It’s Memorial Day! I hope everyone is well and safe. Thank goodness the weather has been in our favor. Attached to this newsletter are Memorial Day coloring pages. Feel free to have your children color, paint or bingo marker them and proudly display them on your windows for the coming holiday.
Hope you all got our revised second e-mail about Red Robin Country Day School’s First Annual “Moving Up/Graduation Car Parade!” We are soooo excited!!! It is next Thursday, May 28th at 11:00am. Rain date is Friday, May 29th at 11:00am. It is at the Cantiague Elementary School parking lot on Cantiague Rock Road in Jericho. If you are coming from Jericho Turnpike it will be the 3rd entrance on your left.
FEEL FREE TO DRESS UP YOUR CARS WITH STREAMERS, BALLOONS OR A POSTER.
LET’S MAKE THIS A UNIQUE AND JOYOUS CELEBRATION FOR YOUR CHILDREN. THEY DESERVE IT!
We will keep sending reminders out next week as well.
If you have any questions please feel free to call me or text or e-mail. Thank you for all your love and support through these uncharted times.
We know that this has all been a lot especially for your small young children. If some of your children are struggling with this Pandemic (and who isn’t?) Miss Lori has come across two books that she thought might be great conversation starters. The first one is entitled Fiona Flamingo. It is a book used to help children understand their feelings. The author is Rachel Urrutia Chu. There is a Utube video you can watch as well. The second book is Anna and the Germ That Came to Visit, by Christianna Klein. Their website is THEGERMBOOK.COM. It is about talking to your young children about this Pandemic and how it has changed the world.
We have all of you in our thoughts and prayers.
Here’s my quote of the week:
Life changes so quickly.
We can be happy one day,
Empty and broken the next.
If we learn anything from this pandemic,
I hope it is to value the moments, treasure the memories and hold onto what counts.
Make time each day to realize how fleeting life is
and to thank God for each blessing.
Maybe this pandemic will teach us to slow down,
and appreciate what we have and how quickly it can be gone.
My prayer is that it will.
LIFE IS A GIFT.
By Shelby Condo
I leave you with those thoughts…
Have a wonderful holiday weekend.
