Attached is Bret Tarver's school newsletter for the month of May. We would like to thank all of the absolutely phenomenal teachers that Bret Tarver has to offer, not only during teacher appreciation week, but for their effort, passion, and support all year round! If you haven't told your student's teacher thank you lately, send a quick email, or shout out a teacher in the drop off/pick up line. Any acknowledgement, no matter how short or sweet, makes all the difference!

In addition to our butterflies, we found another insect visitor in our garden!! Another highlight of each day is going out to the garden to harvest and check on our fruits and veggies. Our tomato plants have been thriving, and our students were so surprised to see our corn crops sprout up this week!

Spring time is an exciting time at the Bret Tarver Isaac Preschool because it means many classrooms receive caterpillars. Room 10 received caterpillars several weeks ago, and the children have gotten to observe and document in their journals, the caterpillars grow, form chrysalises, and emerge as butterflies. The students in room 10 have loved having these creatures as visitors in the classroom, and spend much of their time during free play simply watching them and discussing what they see with their friends.

harvest carrots
Now that the frost is over, now is the perfect time to be out in the garden. Last week, Bret Tarver added worms to our garden. This week, we let the kids dig to try to find them. If you've been thinking about starting a small garden, or some potted plants at your house, why not start this weekend?? Let your child help in the process, so your whole family can enjoy the garden and feel invested. Some ideas of plants that do well in the spring in Arizona are Dill, Cilantro, Watermelon, Summer Squash, Spinach, Scallions, Radishes, Peas, Peanuts, Okra, Melons, Cucumbers, corn, Carrots, Cantaloupe, and Beans.

We're going to try something new. If you have been following Bret Tarver, you know that we have a beautiful garden on our campus now. The frost was hard on our plants, but some are finally starting to come back. This morning we harvested romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cilantro, oregano, and chives. There are two bags of these fresh veggies and herbs in the Bret Tarver office. The first two parents to arrive at the office and say "I would like a bag from your garden" will receive a bag from our harvest! We can't wait to see who shows up!! Vamos a probar algo nuevo. Si ha estado siguiendo a Bret Tarver, sabe que ahora tenemos un hermoso jardín en nuestro campo. El frio fue muy duro para nuestras plantas, pero algunas finalmente están comenzando a regresar. Esta mañana cosechamos lechuga romana, tomates cherry, cilantro, orégano y cebollin. Hay dos bolsas de estas verduras y hierbas frescas en la oficina de Bret Tarver. ¡Los dos primeros padres que lleguen a la oficina y digan "Me gustaría una bolsa de su jardín" recibirán una bolsa de nuestra cosecha! ¡¡Nosotras estamos emocionadas de ver quien viene.!

Here at Bret Tarver Preschool, we are all about wellness. This does not just include physical wellness and health, but mental wellness and health as well. For many years, our teacher's lounge has served many purposes, such as teacher workroom, curriculum storage, toy storage, etc. Mental wellness for teachers, means having a space to go to relax and unwind, even if it's only for 30 minutes. Over the last couple weeks, majority of the staff has helped in some way to organize, paint, design, and reimagine our staff lounge. The pictures will give you a "before" version of our old lounge room. We are putting on the finishing touches, and cannot wait to reveal out new staff lounge to you next week. A huge thank you to all of the Bret Tarver staff who helped with this process!
