It has been a fantastic start to the school year!! Thank you to you all for your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate through our new protocols and requirements. The drop off and pick up has gone relatively smoothly. Please try to stick to your allotted times (with the exceptions of those of you who have conflicting drop offs), as the teachers are helping each other out during the morning routine. The children are adjusting so well to our classrooms, and our daily routines are under way. We are looking forward to a fun month of October!! We have postponed our annual Family Breakfast and hope to revisit this special tradition in the Spring.
Lunch time is going so well. Thank you all for cooperating with our NO peanut or tree nut policy. During lunch, we do our best to encourage the children to eat their healthy lunch first and then the treat if provided. An ideal lunch would be three healthy choices, as too many choices can be confusing. Please include a drink in your child’s lunchbox, labelled if it is a water bottle.
Thank you also for signing up for snack through emailing your child’s teacher. Just send an email with a date you would like to send in snack for the children in your child’s class. Please keep in mind healthy eating is our goal! Fruit, cheese, veggies, yogurt, crackers are always welcome! Cupcakes for birthdays or special occasions are a fun treat but we are holding off on baked goods at this time. Please remember our NO NUT policy.
We are planning to go outside every day, weather permitting, so please dress accordingly. Also, please be sure to mark all clothing with permanent marker so that we can help the children find their new jackets. We are encouraging the older children to put on, zip and button their own jackets, as this promotes independence and helps to prepare them for kindergarten. Sneakers are best for outdoor play and the gym as the sand can be sometimes damp.
The dates for the Halloween Parties are Wednesday, October 29th and Thursday, October 30th. A special letter will be sent home with details TBD.
Please keep your calendars handy so that you can keep informed of our daily activities and theme weeks! Please continue to reach out to your child’s teacher with any questions, concerns, or information. Photos of activities will be sent periodically throughout the year. There will be updates on Facebook when it comes to inclement weather or any emergency situations. Email: email@example.com for any other questions.
Tuition is due on the first week of the month. You may either mail this in via your bank or hand it to Mrs. Sullivan at drop off.
NO SCHOOL: OCTOBER 12th, Columbus Day
HALLOWEEN PARTIES: OCTOBER 29th and 30th
NOVEMBER BREAK: Early dismissal Wednesday, Nov 25th, 1:00pm
Special thanks to Ms. Marissa for helping out in our 2 DAY Class during the month of September! Marissa will continue to be with us on Tuesday/Thursday during October!
