Dear Parents,

Welcome back! Hope everyone had a great Spring Break! As we head into spring, we wrap up our two month exploration of Mammals Around The World and launch into Lifecycles (plants, frog, chicken and butterfly).

2012 School Year Registration and Rates

Due to a steady rise in operating costs since our last increase in tuition in 2009, there was an increase in tuition fees as of January 2012. As students enrolled before January 2012 were guaranteed a lower rate for the 2011/12 school year, this rate increase does not affect current students until September 2012. Please see attached rates sheet for details.

Enrollment forms for Summer Camps and re-enrollment forms for the 2012-2013 school year (September 2012 to June 2013) are coming out this week. Please submit forms as soon as possible with post dated cheques attached. Please review individual forms for details and due dates.

Easter Bunny
The Easter Bunny has scheduled a special egg hunt for Sandcastle Park kids this week. He has informed us the eggs will be hidden on the first afternoon it is sunny…or even a break in the weather. So, let’s all cross our fingers for a nice day!

Peek-a-boo Beans Event
The suppliers of our school uniforms have organized an event for the families of Sandcastle as a thank-you for being patient with the uniform order this year. Please see attached invitation to the party! It should be loads of fun! A RSVP form will be put out at the beginning of next week.
