Children who are leaving The Little School to enter 6th grade are considered to be outgrowing. The Outgrowing Ceremony takes place at 4 p.m. on June 7 at the Covered Court, before the all-school Year-end Potluck. This event has some traditional elements, including teachers speaking about each student, a ceremonial trip down the jay slide and cupcakes. Families from all classes are invited to attend this truly special event which honors the journey of our outgrowers and celebrates the promise that lies ahead for them in middle school. Earlier in the day, all 4th grade students will participate in an Upgrowing ceremony as they look ahead to their 5th grade year. It will be a big day for all our oldest students.
The auction procurement deadline has been extended to Monday, February 25. That means there is still time for you to stop by your favorite shop or restaurant, talk to family and friends, and consider what you will donate to support The Little School 60th Anniversary Celebration & Auction. However, it is so helpful if you can get your items in by this Friday or at least email email@example.com to let us know what you're working on so we can plan the work ahead.
We're looking for items that we can offer to our community to raise money for The Little School. Download a procurement form, check out the Procurement Guide or the Procurement Wish List and get started. Completed procurement forms can be dropped off at the Admin Building or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now is the time to get tickets to The Little School 60th Anniversary Celebration & Auction. They are on sale now at the early bird price of $110 through February 15. Invite friends, family and colleagues to join you. Talk with other TLS families about attending as well. You can stay at the Marriott for a discounted rate of $139.
February 14 is the deadline for applying for financial aid for the 2019-2020 school year. While we know that a TLS education is an investment for a lifetime, we also know it can take planning to make it work financially. Our goal is to build an economically diverse school community. We also want to make sure our families know that there is funding available if you need it. If you are interested in applying, you can do so online through the FAST system. If you have questions while completing the online application, please call FAST directly at their 24-hour call center: 1-877-326-FAST (3278).
The auction is about supporting The Little School, having fun and celebrating TLS history, and we want you to be there! The Bellevue Marriott has plenty of space, so be sure to invite friends, family and colleagues to join us in supporting The Little School at this adult-only, community-building and fundraising event. Encourage other classroom parents, adult alums and alumni parents to join you and really make it a sparkle! You can even make it a full-night celebration by staying in the hotel for our reduced rate of $139/night. To make sure you get the invitation with all the details, contact email@example.com.
At TLS a group of parents and guardians gather monthly to explore, understand and celebrate children’s neurodiversity. The next meeting will be in the Schoolhouse on Thursday, Nov 15 from 8:30-9:30 a.m. If you are wondering how to support your child’s learning, how their unique profile fits with others at TLS and how areas of struggle can also be viewed as strengths, there are other parents who know what you are going through and can support you. Come for coffee, tea and conversation. We’ll share our stories, celebrate our successes and discuss strategies and resources that have been beneficial. For more information contact Kary Kublin.
