Lighthouse News
October 2017
Our next closing will be Monday, October 9th for Columbus Day.
Our classrooms have been very busy getting to know new children and preparing for new friends and activities. We are so excited to see old families return for another year and new families joining our Lighthouse family!
We have said farewell to Ms. Erica after 14 years of service to Lighthouse. She has been an integral part of this school since its inception, always giving 100% of her best effort to the children, parents and other staff. She will be sorely missed and we thank her for all she has done for us. Ms. Ashley and Ms. Rachael will be taking Erica’s class and we know that they will bring their own gifts to the children.
We also say farewell to Ms. Amanda, who will be leaving to acquire her Masters Degree in Education. We are very proud all she accomplished here and know she will continue be be very successful.
We welcome new teachers, Ms. Kyla (infant room), Ms. Patience (pre-3), Ms. Haley (pre-2), and Ms. Ashley Costa. We know they will be assets to our program.
We must remind parents that daily rates cover 9 hours of service only. Once over 9 hours an extra $5 per child per day is required to be paid. Nine hours would be 7-4pm, 8-5pm or less. Many parents have signed up for example, 7:30 to 3:30 but then arrive before 7 or pick up way beyond 3:30. We do not have enough staff to do accommodate this. We can now only accept emergency drop offs like this if you call in advance.
Please make sure your child has an extra set of clothes at all times. We only have a couple of pairs for each age group and we want to avoid any embarrassment for our little friends.
Thank you to the Clough family for their donation of clothes.
