From the Principal’s Office
Well, spring finally showed up, but it could have left the rain behind. No matter the weather, enjoy the days with family and friends!
Lifetouch Portraits will be here to take our spring school pictures on Monday, April 23rd and Tuesday, April 24th. 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 any students in Infant, Toddler One, Toddler Two, Beginner and Intermediate who do not have a sibling at our school will have their pictures taken. If your child will not be in attendance on their scheduled picture day, they will have their pictures taken on the other day. If your child does not attend on Monday or Tuesday, please stop by the office to speak with Robyn or Cierra about making arrangements. Class photos will be taken as well, the photographer will decide when these will be taken.
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 on page 13 of our 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.
No Food, Please
Please remember we cannot have any outside food brought into our school, specifically left over breakfast or snacks in the morning. Please have your child leave any food they have in the car before coming into the building. We have several students with severe allergies and this will help us keep them safe. Thank you!
Links to Home
Don’t forget to check your child in or out when your child is WITH you, so before dropping them off and after picking them up. This is VERY important for our attendance record keeping. Also if your child is going to be out of school please add that information to Links to Home using the app.
Franklin Park Conservatory Field Trip
The Intermediate and Pre-K classes will be taking a field trip to Franklin Park Conservatory on April 17th. Permission slips will be sent home next week. Chaperones are more than welcome, just be sure to complete that section on the form and turn in the chaperone fee. The students always have a blast checking out the butterflies and learning new things!
* 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, when your child is with you.
* 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.
* Tuition Due – Tuition will be due on April 9th and 23rd. 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 Wednesday of the tuition cycle.
