This is our final week of StrongStart for this school year.  When you visit remember to take your child's photo and your family photo home.  Also check through the art box that sits in the hallway just outside our door.


This week we will continue playing in our ocean area with the sharks and whales.  Our camping area has been changed to a different tent and a boat.  The work bench has been set up for hammering with real hammers and nails.


Monday your child can paint on the large cardboard box in the art area.  What kind of brushes can we use?


We finished harvesting our Spuds in Tubs and counted 318 potatoes.  Last week we cooked and tasted boiled, fried, mashed and cheese potato pancakes.  Monday you can try my potato candy as our last dish.


Tuesday we will be making our own ice cream for snack using bananas as the base.


Wednesday we will close early then head to Fairy Lane for a tea party.  You can meet us at Fairy Lane just before 11.  Meet in the parking area at the top of the bike path.  You can find Fairy Lane at the end of Sheraton Rd just off McDonald Road.


Thursday our bus trip down town is full but you can meet us there if you still want to come.  If you are planning on meeting us there please let me know as I need to let Hot Chocolates know how many people will be there for the free gelato cones.


If you are coming on the bus then you can meet me at the school, at 8:50, and walk with me up to the bus stop on Torrence, or you can park on Torrence and meet us at the bus stop.  The bus leaves the stop at 9:08.  We will be back at the bus stop around 11:10.  Remember that children 4 and under are free, 5 year olds cost $1.75 and adults will cost $2 each way.  Please bring exact change.  If it is raining bring an umbrella.


Friday is Brooklyn's Oscar so dress your best.


Friday evening is our final pot luck.  It will be held at KIN beach picnic site, 1712 Astra Rd, Comox, 4-7pm.  Bring a dish to share, your own plates and utensils and chairs.


Thank you for bringing your child to Brooklyn StrongStart to play this year it has been a pleasure to work with you.  I hope to see you one more time this week.


Have a great week, Maureen​
