Black Lives Matter and Reopening signs on side of building

May 2022 in CYRE:

Hello everybody!

This Sunday, May 1st, we will be planting Sunflower seeds outside in our playground learning about Beltane! Mckenzie could absolutely use some help from older youth and parents setting up that morning at 11. See you there!


“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”

– Leo Buscaglia

I couldn’t believe the highway department called my roommate a thief, but when I got home, the signs were all there.

Someone stole my mood ring yesterday, and I still don’t know how I feel about that.

I can never take my dog to the park because the ducks keep trying to bite him. I guess that’s what I get for buying a pure bread dog.

What’s the difference between a poorly dressed person on a unicycle and a well-dressed person on a bicycle? Attire.

What do you call it when a snowman throws a tantrum? A meltdown.

How does a penguin build its house? Igloos it together.

Your CYRE Needs Your Help!

Have you heard the latest news? We could still use a few volunteers to help us in the classrooms as teachers, to assist on Free Play Days, and to watch over any little ones who may be in our nursery. Please speak to Scott or Mckenzie if you would like to give the gift that keeps giving long after the holidays!
