Dear Parents,

It was during our weekly meeting with the program director, Ms. Wang, that we both couldn't help to realize how fast a school year can be. It's almost March! Speaking of March, meaning that we are going to start one of my favorite school-wide events- The Reading Challenge! This year, our young readers will be riding the Magic School and on an incredible journey in search for the one and only- Ms. Frizzle! One of the windows or doors from each class will be decorated as one of the themes from the Magic School Bus series, don't forget to check it out when you drop by!

Reading, unlike many other skills in early-childhood development, requires years of practice of exposure. If you already established a reading routine at home, congratulations! Please continue to keep it up. If not, it's never too late to set up a daily reading time with your child, starting with 5 to 10 minutes, and gradually set it for 25 to 30 minutes, by the time they are in Preschool or Kindergarten. If you have any questions regarding what to read, how to read with your child or anything else that are reading-related, please don't hesitate to let me know, I will be more than happy to share some of the tips with you.

Below is the Day Program Principal's Note for March. As always, I firmly believe that with your support along the way, us here at Happy Kids can provide the best education to your little ones! Thank you, and enjoy this year's reading challenge!
