Hello Jackson Heights Families!

It's been a pleasure meeting many of you over the last three months. It's also
been very rewarding to see our little ones sing and/or dance along in class and
be able to recognize and respond to Spanish words and phrases. We have very
smart kids in this neighborhood!! Some news...

JAPAN EARTHQUAKE & TSUNAMI RELIEF
I am happy to share that thanks to EVERYONE who has attended my classes in both
Jackson Heights and LIC, in March I was able to donate $150 to the JCIE's
Earthquake Relief and Recovery Fund, for both emergency and long-term efforts in
Japan.

SPECIAL MOTHER'S DAY CLASS AT P.E.D.S.
***THIS MONDAY, MAY 9, IN CELEBRATION OF MOTHER'S DAY: Come to a Monday class
and pay by donation! Give what you wish. Proceeds from this class will be
donated to the MARCH OF DIMES. (A fellow JH mom, Lisa Koss, has been critically
involved in this year's MARCH FOR BABIES fundraising campaign, having a personal
interest in seeing to it that expecting mothers receive early prevention
information to avoid unnecessary birth complications. I am happy to support her
efforts through my class.)

SUMMER SESSION AT PEDS BEGINS MONDAY, JUNE 6
The ¡Vamos a Cantar! 6- and 12-week summer session officially begins on Monday,
June 6. Register now - see the bottom of this e-mail for registration
instructions. In the meantime, we continue to meet on Monday mornings at 10 am
at PEDS. Please come and join us if you haven't tried a class out already. The
children have lots of fun and actually do learn Spanish in the process!

TUESDAY AFTERNOONS AT MI-MI-FOR-ME YOGA STUDIO
Take your child to a $5 trial ¡Vamos a Cantar! class at Mi-Mi's and see for
yourself how fun it can be to have a run of the sunny, spacious and
temperature-controlled yoga studio while singing, dancing and playing to beloved
Spanish children's songs. Makes for a nice cool summer afternoon. Call Mimi at
718.505.9642. http://www.mimiformeyoga.com/fall-Schedule.html

I hope to continue to see many of you throughout the summer, as well as meet
more of you soon.

BIO

Gail Montemayor is a neighborhood mom who was raised bilingual from three months
until ten years old. Her love of the Spanish language and desire to raise her
own daughter in a bilingual environment prompted her to learn traditional
Spanish children's songs. While living in Long Island City with her newborn, she
found a community of like-minded parents and continues to meet with them on a
weekly basis to teach songs, sing together, and foster a safe and loving
community for their babies. On average, Gail sings to about twenty-five babies a
week. Now back in Jackson Heights, she hopes to build a similar community for
her family here.
