Dear Families,

It’s February and “LOVE IS IN THE AIR” and “Spring just around the corner so say’s”, Punxsutawney Phil (groundhog). Despite Phil’s accuracey rating of 39%, the National Weather Service is predicting a Warmer then usual Spring. Now that’s something to look forward to..

Behind the scene’s of Lil’ Sprouts much has been going on. We have a new web site for www.lilsproutsofessex.com. A big ‘Thank You” to Molly’s Mom, Keri Gavin of Keri Jeanne Photography for the outstanding photo’s she took that can be seen in the video and throughout the web site. The new web site will allow us to blog and have a presence on facebook. There is a calendar on the web site that will allow you to go in and check out all the happenings at school. I will be tutored on the up keep and enhancement of the site this week.

We have also put together the “Summer Program” and this can be found under the school details heading. We would love any and all comments you might have on our new site.
