Happy Hall @ Santa Inez Newsletter | April


Director's Message

Hello everyone!


April brings us crazy Spring weather. Rain, wind and sunshine. We have been very busy here at Santa Inez Happy Hall. We have been doing a lot of Spring cleaning and reorganizing areas at our school. 


We have added an outdoor classroom to our campus. It is located on our fiesta deck. In the outdoor classroom setting children connect to the natural world and learn from what nature has to teach us. Check out our courtyard Community Collage of Pictures. Fun Stuff!!


Here at Santa Inez Happy Hall we envision a world where along with our Core Beliefs children have access to the rich developmental opportunities that come from engaging with the natural world. With that said we will be celebrating Earth Day this month.


We have also added a Science/Sensory Area across from our snail fountain! 


During week of April 8th through the 12th we will be celebrating NAEYC’s

The Week of the Young Child”. (Please see email from your child’s lead teacher for more information).


Please remember to read all communication sent by the school. We will use email, text or 1Core to keep families informed.
