Volume 6 Footsteps Newsletter Issue 23
Spring conferences are around the corner. Your child's teacher will send out a sign up link when it gets closer to the actual conference date. In the meantime, do you have concerns, questions about your child's behavior or communication for your child's teacher which can't wait until conferences? You do NOT need to wait until the end of March to meet. Please reach out and speak with your child's teacher whenever you have a concern or a question.

Student Registration for 2021-2022!
Student Registration
Registration packets will be coming home today for current families to register. Our current families may register current students as well as incoming students for next year at a discounted registration fee rate of $50. This lower registration fee will be valid through 2/16//21. Registration opens to the public on 2/17/21. At that point, the registration fee returns to $100 for all students. If your family utilizes PFCC/JFS benefits, the registration fee is covered by that program. If you are applying for an Early Childhood Education Grant (see below), the registration fee may be waived based on the sliding fee scale for that program.
ODE Early Education Grants
We are fortunate enough to have Ohio Department of Education Grants which allow children who meet requirements to attend school at a free or reduced cost. Students must reside in Ohio, be 4 years old on Oct. 1, 2021 and the family must meet the financial qualifications based on family size. It is important to note that spots are limited and applications must be complete in order to process. Grant applications will be accepted starting 2/1/21. Applications can be found outside of the school office on the bench. Please be sure to submit all items requested including a copy of the child's birth certificate (unless it is already on file here), proof of income as indicated on directions and the last four digits of your child's social security number. Please contact the office for any questions.
