Join us on Monday, April 29, 7-8:30 p.m. at Villa Academy for a presentation by Amy Lang. Amy, a well-known parent educator, therapist, and author, will discuss three simple tips that even smart parents need to take the sting out of the Birds and the Bees talk. You will learn how to start and continue the conversation. You will understand better why your parents’ approach may not have been successful and how you can do it differently. You will leave the discussion feeling more confident and inspired to keep the conversation going. This event is free and open to the public.
We look forward to welcoming Grandparents to Villa Academy on Friday, May 10. The day will begin with Mass at St. Bridget at 9am followed by a reception, classroom visits and more fun at Villa. Please see the Grandparent Day Invite for all the details and to RSVP.
We are so proud of our Villa preschoolers who not only met, but surpassed the goal of their recent Coins for a Cause service project! The preschoolers raised a total of $2,759.85 (their goal was $1,500) for the Wuqu’ Kawoq Maya Health Alliance to provide food and medicine for Levi, a severely malnourished Guatemalan baby with congenital deformities of his hands and feet.
Dr. Peter reported that Levi has already gained quite a bit of weight and they are very happy with his progress. You can see the difference in his “before and after” pictures to the left.
Great job, preschoolers!
