Dear Geneva families, staff, and friends:

Happy first few days of spring which are evident all around the Geneva grounds! Your children are amazed at the beautiful blooming bulbs which they planted last fall during our Harvest Days, listening to the birds busy with song and nest building activities in the mornings, and noticing insects slowly emerging and flying around. Many classes have been taking advantage of warm days to be outside for nature walks, snacks, stories, and other projects. It has been nice to see many of you linger after pickup in the afternoons to visit the Children’s Garden. If any of you have extra time, we have several projects to further enhance the area, and we always need help. Just let the office know, we appreciate it!

Thank you to everyone for your great support of the recent Geneva Parents’ Association (GPA) Social and Auction. It was lovely to visit with so many of you at the recent Bethesda Country Club Spring Social.  Now, the GPA is busy finalizing plans for their annual Spring Carnival, scheduled on the grounds for Saturday, April 29, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. It is always fun for children of all ages and is open to the public! Keep your eyes open for more information on tickets and activities and see you then!

Spring Break is approaching and our highly popular Spring Break Camp is already full. We wish all of you a fun and restful week with family and friends during this period. Once we return from the break, many activities will occur, including our Earth Day, which will be celebrated outside on April 20 and 21 for all classes. Teachers would love to have you sign up to help out with your child’s class.

Once again, Geneva Day School’s kindergarten class will be singing the National Anthem at the Bowie Baysox baseball game on May 3 at 11:05 a.m. This is a great opportunity to watch a game up close by the 3rd base dugout; the office can fill you in on details if you are interested in attending. Spring Parent/Teacher Conferences will be May 3-5, with a SignUp Genius going out soon so parents can reserve a time. School will be very busy in May until the end of the school year and right into summer pre-camp and regular summer camp programs. We hope that you register your child(ren) for the days and sessions of summer camp that work with your family’s schedule. Our weekly themes for the summer are highly appealing to children and will include special events each week.

All in all, April will be an amazing month! We hope that you can come and be a part of the excitement in your child’s classroom!

Warm regards,

Suzanne Funk 

Director
