The CCC goes to Mars!

We are thrilled to share that the CCC’s name has been added to NASA’s Mars 2020 rover, which is set to launch to the Red Planet in July of 2020. One of our very own preschool teachers, Daniela Perez, took the opportunity to make this happen and submitted our name to NASA’s “Send Your Name to Mars” campaign. Check out our souvenir boarding pass below and learn more about this fun opportunity to embark on this voyage to Mars!

It’s time to say goodbye.  Time rushed by as Bunnies turned to Dolphins, Dolphin to Penguins. Penguins to Koalas, Koalas to Raccoons, Raccoons to Beavers and Beavers to kindergartners.

It’s also time to say goodbye to Annie.  Annie has been a Beaver teacher for 3 years and has decided it’s time to go back to school to pursue her dream to become an occupational therapist. We will miss her dearly.  These goodbyes remind us how important it is to slow down and take time to enjoy the little things.  Take a minute and check out this charming book at the front desk.
