Can you believe Spring Break is right around the corner?
Warmer weather awaits and we sure have experienced a teaser or two this past week.
Though it feels like it is time to break out the summer wear; please continue guiding your child to dress appropriately for changing temperatures, i.e. layer up.
Sometimes we see a ten degree variance with in one hour and morning outside time temperatures are
consistently hovering below 30 degrees.
Amy, Canyon Room Lead Teacher was married and honeymooned last week.
If you get a moment please offer your well wishes.
Congratulations Amy and Ian.
Returning preschool student registration got underway last week; if your child is a returning preschool student this fall (16-17) and you have not received a registration form please see Lexi or Yvonne in the office.
You may have noticed full day program is no longer available for preschool friends; this past November the Colorado Legislature passed new licensing laws-one of which changed the requirements for napping or rest periods including space, equipment and equipment storage requirements .
Our facility currently does not have adequate space to provide nap; logistically it is also unfeasible for us to provide all school nap during the day due to high enrollment, program demand and the guarantee of an uninterrupted work cycle.
I sincerely apologize for this convenience.
I am filing an appeal with the State however, it is my understanding a waiver is unlikely to be granted.
New student registration begins next Monday and will continue until available slots have been filled. Please consider referring a friend, colleague or community member to our school!
Enrollment packets (the multi-page form) will not be available until the beginning of the school year, as all forms need to be dated and signed within thirty days of our first day of school. The exception will be the Health Status Form which will be available for pick up anytime; the office will notify you if your child's Health Status Form expires during the summer months.
The next two months are going to be super busy.
Staff are gearing up for our Colorado Shines Evaluation in April, working hard on our Language program and of guiding your children through the classroom.
Soon, Kindergarten friends will begin visiting the Lower Elementary classrooms.
Keep an eye on your email inbox and parent folder for announcements in the coming weeks.
Lastly, please check out the Board of Directors section of this newsletter.
