Volume 8 Issue 9

Welcome back! It was so nice to see all of you again! The Christmas Programs were so lovely and the students really did a great job. Shout out to the teachers for all of their hard work and creativity.

The second half of the school year tends to be the time period when we see the most growth in students. Children tend to really gain confidence during this time period and it is typically a lot of fun to see the connections that they are making daily as things click into place! Enjoy these changes. Independence in our children can seem scary because it means that they are growing up but try to join your child in their excitement as they gain new skills and confidence!

Please note that our day begins at 8 AM with drop off ending at 8:30 AM. If your child has an appointment and will be late, please notify the teacher or the office and have your child to school no later than 10 AM. Since we are different than a day care, we require that children arrive on time so that they won't miss class learning. It is also important that your child attend their scheduled days and not show up on a day which is not scheduled. Thank you for your cooperation!
