From the Principal’s Office
Fall is here! We are looking forward to all of the fun fall activities that we will be doing throughout the season! We will get to explore and learn about all of the great things autumn has to offer. Now that we have settled into the new school year we are excited to dive into our curriculum and learn many new and exciting skills!
Pumpkin Patch Field Trip!!
The pumpkin patch field trip is just a few weeks away! You will be receiving a permission slip next week. For the trip on Wednesday, October 19th be sure to have you child at school and ready to get on the bus by 9:00. Students should wear their yellow Enchanted Care t-shirt. Please keep in mind that we are going to a farm and pumpkin patch so dress your child in appropriate clothing that is warm and can get dirty, it’s very possible that we may encounter some mud on our trip! We certainly welcome parents to join us on the trip; however this could mean that chaperones will need to follow the bus in their own vehicles in order for us to ensure that we can get all of the children on the bus and to the pumpkin patch safely.
Lifetouch Portraits will be here to take our fall school pictures on Monday, October 17th and Tuesday, October 18th. On Monday all Pre-K photos will be taken. Also all students with siblings at our school will have their individual and sibling photos taken Monday. On Tuesday Infant, Toddler One, Toddler Two, Beginner and Intermediate students will have their pictures taken. If your child(ren) will not be in attendance on their scheduled picture day, they will have their pictures taken on the opposite day. If your child(ren) does not attend on Monday or Tuesday, please stop by the office to speak with Shaina about making arrangements. Class photos will be taken as well, the photographer will decide when these will be taken.
With cooler weather on the way, it’s a good time to change out your child’s cubby clothes for more weather appropriate items. You may also want to take the opportunity to check the sizes of the clothes in the cubby. In addition, since it has been a bit on the chilly side in the morning; please be sure to send a jacket to school for outside time.
Each classroom will have a Harvest Party and participate in our Costume Parade on Monday, October 31st. We welcome our little witches, wizards, fairies and everything scary to our harvest party. Each classroom will have a sign-up sheet for you to pick your potion to bring to the party. Please remember to keep the costumes ‘G’ rated and refrain from bringing any dangerous props.
* Don’t forget to check your child’s cubby for important information from their teachers and the office.
* Please make sure that you are signing your child in every morning and out every evening. 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 so not leave children in the car unattended. It is also important that you do not leave your car running while in our school.
* Tuition Due – Tuition will be due on October 10th and October 24th. Please make sure that your account is current with the tuition cycle.
