Quote of the Month
Summer Splash Days
With summer comes everyone's favorite: SPLASH DAYS!!
Beginning June 14th, during each class', back deck playtime our Pandas will enjoy playing in the water. There will be a sprinkler, water toys, and lots of fun. Teachers will let you know which days your child's class will be having Splash Days. If you would like for your child to participate please send in a swimsuit, towel, splash shoes, sunscreen, and if needed splash diapers. PLEASE BE SURE TO LABEL EVERYTHING, this helps us get the kiddos ready quickly and make sure everyone has their own belongings.

Employee of the Month
Please put your hands together to help celebrate our JUNE EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH, Ms. Markie Niehaus.
Ms. Markie has been part of our team for two years. Ms. Markie comes to our school with over 30 years of working in early childhood. She has taken college courses in early childhood education and is currently working on her CDA.
Ms. Markie first joined us as part of our infant staff, once an opening became available in our preschool area she welcomed the change to become part of the preschool team. She currently is our Dolphin teacher, which is one of our 3 ½ -4-year-old rooms.
Ms. Markie loves watching the children practice a new skill and watching their little eyes light up when they say “I did it or aren’t you so proud of me”? She loves their giggles and watching them make good choices and helping their friends.
When Ms. Markie isn’t hanging out with her Dolphins she loves going to the beach, camping, swimming, fishing, doing crafts, and catering weddings.
We are looking for awesome, fun-loving, positive folks to join our team! Do you know someone who would be a great fit for the Polly Panda team?
We are currently looking for help in various roles. Hours are Monday through Friday from 9 am-6 pm.
Anyone who is interested can stop by the office and get an application or by visiting our website: https://www.pollypanda.com/job-opportunities.html
