Spring Beautification


Do you still have Volunteer Hours to fulfill by May 1? Are you itching to work in the yard? Come join us on Mar. 31 and April 1 to tidy up the grounds and play yards and earn volunteer hours. This spring’s work is focused on tidying up after the winter storms, so there are lots of sticks and branches to pick up, mulch to rake, and litter to be collected on the Lower Playground, among other activities. We do need one person to head up to the roof and take a look around, as well as a person or two to use the leaf blower to clear the parking lot.


Come by the office on the 31st or 1st to select a task and collect a tool. Please bring your own work gloves. If you know you’d like to rake mulch, bring a rake. Children are welcome to help with age-appropriate tasks as well (not on the roof) and must be accompanied by an adult. Other family members are welcome, too. Everyone’s hours count; please remember to log them.


New Time for Coffee Chat


Due to popular demand, the April coffee chat will begin at 8:15!


Summer Camp Enrollment Reminder


Summer camp enrollment is now open for current families. Please note: enrollment opens to the full Bloomington community on May 1, and camps may fill up quickly thereafter, so enroll now to ensure your child’s spot!
