Tumble Bus

Wednesday June 17th our Tot Spot had a visit from the Tumble Bus. I don't know if anyone has seen these buses driving down the road but they were wonderful.

They do a 30 minute fitness program for 18months to 5 years old. Coach Dan and Miss Kitty take fitness to the kids. Coach Dan is a retired coach from the Sylacauga School system and Miss Kitty owned and taught gymnastics. They had the idea to wheels to there passion: teaching kids fitness.

Our preschoolers had a fantastic time jumping, riding a zip line, monkey bars, jumping and swinging. Thank you so much Coach Dan and Miss Kitty.

Coupon Class at the Library

On July 28th at 6:00pm we will offer a class to help us maximize our use of coupons. I will be putting more information out as I get it. Columbiana Public Library offered this class last week and had over 31 in attendance.

The program will be in the Council Chambers at City Hall. We will begin at 6:00 pm and try to end around 7. You will be able to hang around afterward if you have more questions.

Summer Reading Up Til Now

I noticed it has been a while since I posted. Needless to say I am busy!!! We have had 3 great programs for summer reading.

Amanda from the dairy mobile classroom introduced us to Lucille, a 2 year old Jersey cow and talked to us about milk and nutrition.

Ms. Sandy Johnson talked to us about art and showed us some of her artwork and explained the different mediums she used. We also created art on our t-shirts. It was a wonderful time.

This past Wednesday the puppet ministry from North Shelby Baptist Church performed for us. They always do a great job. Mayor Niven served hotdogs to all that came. We had 150+ at this program. It was standing room only!

Next Wednesday the 24th Wild West Entertainment will be here. I hope everyone can be here for this.
