The end of the school year is rapidly approaching; the days and weeks are practically falling away. As we wind down the school year, be prepared for yet another busy month. End of Year Field Trip Permission Forms and other announcements will be distributed through out the month; please keep an eye out for them during pick up.
I hope you will all join us on
May 24th for the Kindergarten Bridge Ceremony and All School Gallery immediately following. Your children have worked hard and are pleased to share with you some work samples from the course of the year. The evening begins at 5:00 pm here at Children's House.
As we approach warmer weather, our staff kindly ask you provide your child with a water bottle to keep at school. Children need to hydrate often and thankfully many children feel empowered to do so as the need arises. We appreciate your attention to your child's thirst needs, be sure to label their water bottle.
End of the year housekeeping:
- Please have tuition/snack fee/lunch fees or outstanding invoices paid in full by May 20th. Please note: schedule confirmation and placement for Fall will be held until all balances are paid in full. If you foresee any obstacles or have trouble meeting the May 20th deadline, please see Alexia in the office as soon as possible; resources are available to assist you.
- Returning student and New Student Registration Packets are now available. These are the lengthy packets you fill out at the beginning of the year annually. We got the okay from the State to offer these in advance. That means less for you to do at the beginning of the school year! In the fall you will need simply review your child's file for any updates to contact information. Pick up your returning student packet in the office.
- Colorado Preschool Program (CPP) Applications are now available in the office. This State funded program offers four half days of enrollment free of charge.
This week is Teacher Appreciation Week. Many thanks to Children's House staff for their professionalism, hard work and their love of children. You make all the difference in so many lives. Emails went out last week describing this week's event schedule. In case you missed, the itinerary is detailed below.
Lastly but certainly not least; I would like to formally thank Shamai Buckel, Board Member out going this month, for her faithful commitment to Children's Kiva. Shamai is a founding member of Children's Kiva Charter School and has served on Children's House Board for the last five years. Shamai has shared her interest of healthy living and eating with our programs, volunteered with RE-1 Health & Wellness Committee, and has been instrumental in developing our schools' Health & Wellness Programs. Thank you Shamai for all of your hard work over the years; we hope to stay in touch. Many well wishes in your future endeavors.
May a restful, fulfilling and rejuvenating summer be enjoyed by all.
