The year is winding down, with summer in sight. Many of you have plans for Spring Break and Summer coming up. Join us Wednesday before Spring Break for a brief orientation, question & answer session, tour, and activity for your child.

Head of School
This month let’s celebrate our Moms! We will be making special Mother’s Day crafts and look forward to sharing extra hugs and kisses our moms!
Show and Share
Every Friday! Please remember the item must fit in your cubbie!
Learning Focus for May
The focus for this month is flowers and insects. We will also be learning about life cycles, and watching our caterpillars turn into butterflies!
This week help your child see visual similarities and differences. Find something while out and about and point out to a child and see if they can find something similar. Do the same with differences. Another activity is sorting items into similar groups, like different shapes of pasta. Give it a try. Remember don’t do it for them. They are learning.
Prekindergarten and Kindergarten Graduation will take place on Saturday, May 19th beginning at 9:30am.
Sidney loves to swing, play with balls, play with her baby dolls and likes to cook. Her favorite foods are fruit, cheese, noodles and chocolate milk. She enjoys going places and is full of energy. She is usually smiling and makes her family laugh
Nickolas loves to play with trains, go see trains…trains, trains, trains! His favorite foods are chicken nuggets, chocolate, ice cream and waffles. He has two cats named Kali and Jet. He is the “sonshine” of his parent’s lives. If he could go somewhere special it would be to see trains. We are talking real trains…perhaps a future engineer.
This week we planned to sort and group balls with the ones each child brought, but not everyone remembered, so we need you to help us by bringing these items for your child’s full participation. We managed and had great fun. This week we were all about sports. We kicked balls, played basketball, talked about our favorite sports, and played “over and under” with the balls. We read books about sports and graphed balls.
Show and Share
This Friday, the 16th the show and share is a shape. It is a SQUARE. Bring something that is this shape. Remember it must fit in your cubbie!
Learning Focus for March 12-16
The focus is Creepy Crawlies. We are making a special concoction of edible dirt and worms. If we can have a few volunteers to purchase Oreo cookies, we will provide the rest. Please let us know if you could volunteer to bring some. The kids love this week.
Question of the Week
Can you help your child when you play outside to try somethings they maybe haven’t before?
- Jump forward with both feet together
- Bounce a ball to them and help them learn to catch
- Can they hop on the right foot and then the left foot five times?
These are a few skills that are developmentally appropriate for children to be working on.CHEER THEM!!
We have an informal gathering on Wednesday, March 21st, 2012 at 9 a.m. for those registered for Georgia Pre-K.

Comprehensive Therapy Children’s Center offers speech, occupational and physical therapy for children birth to 21 years of age.

“You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.”
What better way to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday than reading to a child? On the evening of March 2nd (Dr. Seuss’s birthday), Random House and the National Education Association (NEA) urge you to participate in the second annual Read Across America and read to a child.
WHY CELEBRATE DR. SEUSS?
Dr. Seuss epitomizes a love of children and learning. Also, his use of rhyme makes his books an effective tool for teaching young children the basic skills they need to be successful. When we celebrate Dr. Seuss and reading, we send a clear message to America’s children that reading is fun and important.
A Message from Mary | February
It is nearing the end of February. The time since Thanksgiving and Christmas has gone by quickly and even Valentine’s Day! The children loved celebrating Valentine’s Day with the exchanging of individual Valentine’s! The decorating of Valentine boxes and bags and the sweets that goes with this celebration of loving one another.
The First Open House For Parents a Success
Today, February 22, 2012 was the first Open House for parents that have already registered at Brenwood Academy for the lottery funded GA Pre K 2012-2013. We had a tremendous turnout and the time together included an overview of the lottery-funded program, a look at the curriculum and spending time in a GA Pre K classroom to understand how it is laid out and what a typical day is like. We also toured the playground and gymnasium so parents and those children that attended had some fun time getting some exercise.
Pre-K in May
Brenwood Academy’s lottery-funded Georgia Pre-K Program ends on Friday, April 27th. We are offering to our current Georgia Pre-K parents and to those in the community whose Pre-K program ends at the same time, another program on campus.
Brenwood Academy will be offering the following classes for the school year 2012-2013
