Looking for interested people to take over the SCDC

Hi everyone. So I want to write this email to give my year notice that I will be stepping down from the SCDC in June 2016. My son will be entering full day Kindergarten that following September. I have been running the SCDC for the past 4.5 years and I have truly met some of my closest friends. I am grateful for all this organization has provided my family and I. I am hoping to find a person or persons to take over the SCDC and would like to identify those people in the coming months so I can mentor them. This is one of the only organizations in all of Shrewsbury that provides activities and classes for kids under the age of 5 in the community. I have worked so hard to resurrect the SCDC and bring it back and I would love to see that legacy continue. I will continue to run things for this school year, but really would like to be in touch with people who are interested in taking over so it is a smooth transition. Please email me at if you have some interest. Thanks so much Jenn

Reminder about playground meetup for kids entering Kindergarten and 1st grade

This will take place at all the public elementary schools in Shrewsbury: Beal Coolidge Spring Floral Paton The playground meetup will take place on August 13th at 4pm. It is informal and parents and kids go to meet other families. Its a way to have some familiar faces before going to school. I have some point people at a few of the schools but not all, because people did not volunteer. But do your best to meet the other families. Go to the school where your child will be attending in September. I'm doing it that way so the kids can be familiar with the place they are going to school. Have fun! Email me at with any questions.

Breakfast with the Easter Bunny

I have teamed up with the Texas Road House and we are having a Breakfast with the Easter Bunny. It is $10 per person (2 and under free) and will include breakfast, a picture with the Easter Bunny and a gift for every child. It will be an incredible event. There is also going to be a raffle table and all proceeds will go to the SCDC as a fundraiser. I wondered if anyone has items they could donate to the raffle. Things that are child oriented. Then I can put the baskets together. Please let me know and make sure you call the Texas Road House 508-523-5406 to make reservations. Do not email me because I am not keeping track of the reservations. However please email me if you have a question or if you have something you can donate to the raffle. I would appreciate not having to purchase things from the SCDC money only because it will negate this being any sort of fundraiser for us. I hope to be able to do an end of the school year/beginning of the summer celebration, but we need some additional funds for that. If you have any unopened toys and such to donate that would be wonderful. This will be an incredible event!

STEM Class

Calling all those who want their child to learn about Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM). There is a wonderful program that was developed by Barbara Jorda (Shrewsbury mom!). She takes the STEM concept and turns it into something fun and educational for the kids! They are learning while having fun and it is truly a wonderful program. Another session will begin on March 5th and here are the details. Go to this web page to register: Select "Spring 2015" season. Kids (5-8 years old or grades K-2) - Thursday 9-10 AM Tots (3-5 years old or Preschool/PreK) -Thursday 10:15-11:15 AM Kids (5-8 years old or grades K-2) - Thursday 4:30-5:30 PM The cost of the class is $70 for the 6 week session. A new policy was just implemented that you have to pay at least 3 days before the start of the class or you forfeit your spot. This is due to people reserving spots and never showing up to class. Please be mindful of that when you register. You will love this class and definitely not something to be missed!
