From the Principal’s Office
As the new school year is quickly approaching, we can’t help but reflect on all the fun we had this summer. What a joy it is to watch these smiling faces! We hope you have enjoyed this special season as much as we have here at school!
2016- 2017 School Year Transition News
The first day of school will be August 15th for us. Please note this year we will not be having a transition week as in the past. On the 15th you will be dropping your children off in their new room! We are so excited to watch them grow yet another year. Keep an eye out for transition papers for you to return and information on our Meet the Teacher night on Thursday, August 11th from 5:15-6:15 for you to spend a little extra time getting to know your child(s) new teachers.
Last Water Day’s
Our last week of Water Day’s will be the week of August 8th. We want to say thank you for participating with us, we appreciate your help getting them ready for water play each morning!
Please keep in mind that the safest shoes for children to wear at school are tennis shoes. Sandals, open-toe and slick-soled shoes may not be worn to school. This policy is stated in the Parent Handbook under the Personal Belongings/Clothing section. With summer coming please do not allow children to wear flip-flops or open-toed sandals to school. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but our main objective is to protect the children.
Be sure to stock your child’s cubby box with summer clothing items now that the weather is warmer. It’ also a great time to check the sizes of the clothes you have stored in your child’s cubby. Lastly, remember to keep 2 full changes of clothes in your child’s cubby box.
* Tuition Due – Please make sure that your account is current with the tuition cycle. There will be a $25 late fee assessed to all payments made after Tuesday at Noon of the tuition week. If you are interested in our automatic withdrawal program or to begin payment by credit card please stop by the office to pick up an authorization form.
* Please make sure that you are signing your child in every morning and out every evening, even if your child’s group is in another classroom. Thank you for your consistency with signing the book!
* Parking Lot Safety – Remember to drive slowly and cautiously through our parking lots. There are several small children and their families in the parking lot throughout the day and we want to be sure that everyone is safe! In addition, please do not leave children in the car unattended. It is also important that you do not leave your car running while in our school. Also, all families must enter and exit through the main lobby. Please do not leave with your child out of the playground gates.
Water Days will be running through August 12th
Please bring your child in on their scheduled water day READY TO GO.
This means, swim suit and sunscreen already on. The children must wear water shoes or close-toed shoes that can easily dry (crocks are ok but NO flip flops)
If your child is in diapers, please make sure to bring in swim diapers for the teachers to put on right before they go out for play.
