The Parent Table Board

As we are ¾ of the way through the school year, most of you have probably noticed at pick-up that the dry erase board at the parent table is very festive. That is thanks to this year’s crew of Junior Counselors. At the beginning of the year they decided the board was boring and began the tradition. They usually have themes and the ladies spend most of their afternoon drawing all of the silly things. Some themes that have been done are Freaky Friday, Weird Wacky Wednesday, Circus Monday, Tired Tuesday, Cute Cartoons Day, and Raining Tacos Monday. Some of them even involve asking the parents a poll question like “What’s Your Favorite Season?” The parents and little siblings coming in for pick-up have started looking forward to the crazy creations on the board. Be sure to check out the board the next time you come in to see what the Junior Counselors have come up with that day!

March Birthdays

Happy birthday to students who are celebrating a birthday in March! Here are some fun March facts: March’s birthstones are Aquamarine, which represents courage and bravery, and the Bloodstone, which is said to attract abundance and wealth. March’s birth flower is the daffodil which symbolizes hope. One big celebration in March is the beginning of Spring which happens between March 19 and 21.  Other celebrations in March include National Reading Month, Women’s History Month, Noodle Month and National Craft Month. Some celebrities born in March include: Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Albert Einstein, Simone Biles and Stephen Curry. We hope everyone has a great birthday!

First, I want to say how thankful we are for our parents/guardians understanding and patience during this time. We are in a very unique situation, and your positivity and support for our team means so much! I also wanted to share that during this time we are continuing to pay our full- and part-time staff. I wanted to take this time to reiterate that ESE is closed through April 10 and School’s Out Spring Break Camp is canceled. Refunds/credits have been issued. If you have any questions, please reach out to your Site Supervisor, they will be able to assist you! Should anything change, we will be in contact with you. I also wanted to share some resources for you while you’re home with kiddos. First, Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation’s parks and greenways are still open! Our parks and greenways are a great place for you and your family to get fresh air and stay active while practicing social distancing. We also have several educational resources on our website,, in the “Kids at Home?” drop down, and plan to post fitness and nature education content regularly on our social media channels (@CarmelClayParks on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter). While we greatly miss seeing your kiddo(s) every day, we know we are doing the right thing to keep our families and staff safe. We will see you soon!
