December Notes of Interest
Closing Early December 23rd!!
We will be closing early on December 23rd, the day before Christmas Eve. Our hours that day will be 6:30am - 5:00pm. We will also be closed all day on Dec. 24th and 25th. Enjoy the holidays!
Our evaluation dates were moved to the week of December 9th. This will be the final step in our process of gaining accreditation. It will take up to 4 months for us to hear the results and final decision from NAC. Gaining our national accreditation has been a 2 year process, so we are very excited to be nearing the end and seeing our hard work pay off. We will keep you updated as we know more.
Parent-Teacher Conferences will continue this month. Due to the rescheduling of our accreditation evaluation, we will have to reschedule the conference dates for Room 2, Room 3, and Room 4. The new dates are listed below:
- December 5th (Thursday): Room 7
- December 6th (Friday): Room 6
- December 10th (Tuesday): Room 2
- December 11th (Wednesday): Room 4
- December 18th (Wednesday): Room 3
Please sign up for a time slot in your child's classroom. If you are not able to attend a conference on the date and times available, please talk to your child's teacher for alternative scheduling.
Hand-washing at Drop-off
Hand-washing is an important part of our daily process and the best way to cut down on germs. Our staff do a great job at ensuring all of our children are washing hands at the appropriate times throughout the day. But it has been noted that we are missing a crucial time period...Drop-off! Please help us cut back on the outside germs being brought into our classroom by washing your child's hands when they enter the classroom upon arrival each day. Not only is this is a DCFS requirement that we need to follow, but it is a healthy habit to have as we soon enter into sick season.
Katie's Kids now has a PayPal account to be used for fundraising purposes. There is now a permanent button at the bottom of our newsletters so you can easily find the link to donate in the future. We hope this makes future fundraising easier on all of our families.
