Our Christmas Open House will be on Thursday, December 7th, at 4pm. Santa usually arrives at 5pm. If you can, please come and enjoy some snacks and juice with your children.
We will be closed on Monday, December 25th for Christmas holiday and Monday, January 1st for New Years Day.
We ask that people and children stay away from the dog cage outside. These dogs are nice animals but all animals are unpredictable. They love people but become overly excited when anyone is close to the cage.
We had so much fun at our Thanksgiving breakfast feast. Thank you to all of the parents who brought in something to share!
As the cooler weather approaches please make sure you send in weather appropriate clothing (warm coats, hats, gloves) because we try to get outside as much as possible. If you can label your child’s things that is very helpful as well.
We thank the Korejwas and the Azbills for donations to the school last month.

Please do not store any topical creams (Desitin/sunscreen), bug spray, medications, etc. in your child’s backpack. They cannot be accessible to children at any time. Any topical cream or medication that is needed for daily or emergency use needs the necessary paperwork filled out. You can find this at the front desk.
We send home progress reports every December and June. If you have any questions regarding this report or would like to speak with your child’s teacher at anytime during the year please let us know and we will be happy to arrange a conference. It is very important to us to have open communication between every parent and teacher.
