Teddy Bear Teas throughout the month of May
BRATTLEBORO >> During the month of May, 15 Windham County elementary schools will open their doors to children 5 and younger and their parents, caregivers, early educators, and teddy bears.
Children are invited to bring their favorite teddy bears — other favorite stuffed animals are welcome of course — for a short party called a "Teddy Bear Tea." Adults, children, and bears will meet staff, listen to a story or two, visit with other families and do a craft. Special teddy bear cookies, made by RSVP Volunteers and Brattleboro Union High School students, and other snacks will be provided. These snacks are made possible through a donation from the Mary Meyer Corporation.
Teddy Bear Teas are designed to encourage an open and trusting partnership between home and school. They also are a chance for families to connect with their community. The Teddy Bear Teas are co-sponsored by Early Education Services and Windham County elementary schools. They are funded in part by Building Bright Futures.
