With all this lingering snow and ice around, it’s hard to imagine that spring is right around the corner. (Wait! Not right around the corner – this week! Yesterday!!!!Officially, at least. My slip and fall on the ice in front of our house first thing yesterday was not my favorite way to celebrate, however. Yes, that’s me and my Hello Kitty band-aid at the right. Alas.) So folks at Pine Village have been working on lining up spring and summer events.
As you know, last Thursday night we held Open Houses at all of our schools. We’d also planned Open Houses for this past Tuesday morning but the snow thwarted our plans – we’ll be sure to post new dates as soon as we have them. Nevertheless, it was great to see so many new faces last week – we can’t wait to see everyone again soon!
And what better way to do that than to have you all come to Education Director Jacie Feinberg’s (also rescheduled) CD Launch on March 22 at the Newton school (10:00 a.m.). As you may recall, the launch was originally scheduled for a couple of weeks ago, but we had to postpone that due to snow as well. (Um, hello? Spring? Are you out there?) Bring your family, bring your friends – we hope to see you there! (If you haven’t had a chance yet, please read more about Jacie and the CD in the blog post from March 7.)
Additional CD Launch parties will be held on Saturday, April 6 (10 a.m.; South End School) and Tuesday, July 2 (noon; as part of the Kendall Square Corporation’s Free Summer Concert Series at 300 Athenaeum Street). These events are free and open to the public. For more event details (including an RSVP form) and school locations, see the Pine Village website.
In addition to the above events, we’ll be at the 2013 Cambridge Science Festival’s Science Carnival on Saturday, April 13, noon – 4 p.m. The Carnival takes place at the Cambridge Public Library and grounds, the CRLS Tennis Courts, and the War Memorial Field House (449 Broadway, Cambridge). See more at: http://www.cambridgesciencefestival.org/ We’re not sure yet where we’ll be specifically, but we’ll let you know when we find out. The event happens rain or shine. Be sure to mark your calendar! (Update: Our booth will be located in the tennis courts, in the tent across from the library!)
We also plan on being at the event for SLOAN students in early April as well as some association events in Kendall Square and the South End. And we welcome your suggestions on other events that you’d like to see us attend, not to mention local organizations you think we should join. As our friends and families, you are our ears on the ground, so to speak, so don’t hesitate to let us know what you think. You can send suggestions and ideas to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you.
