School Bus
September means DayBreak goes "back to school" to connect with our friends throughout the Woodland Park RE-2 School District and, unlike some kids, we CANNOT wait to get back in the classrooms!
Besides our regularly scheduled FALL fun for September, we are thrilled to be joining forces with Ms. Owen's combination 2nd and 3rd grade class at Gateway Elementary every Thursday, culminating with an opening act performance at our annual Holiday Show on December 7th. This Christmas Extravaganza will feature the incredibly talented Song Spinners Show Choir from Colorado Springs. We will also be partnering with the Ute Pass BOCES Transition Students, joining them for their homemade lunch at the WP Teen Center every Monday- not to mention our monthly outing to the Farmers Market (6th) and the Woodland Aquatic Center (26th).

Volunteer Spotlight:
Bailey McDaniel

More than a volunteer, Bailey McDaniel was a part of the Paid Work Experience Program and spent 3 months working alongside our participants and staff. While she was hesitant at first, it did not take her long to warm up to our DayBreak family. She was often found giving manicures, going on outings, helping with arts and crafts, and learning the ins and outs of our non-profit and the reasons behind why we do what we do. Bailey really came out of her shell and her time went quickly - we were sad to see her go. Although she has moved on to a new work experience, she will not be forgotten and she checks in with us on a regular basis.
Check out all of the fun we've had this past month!

Financial Service Agreement
Implemented 8/1/19

August 1st marked the introduction of a financial agreement between DayBreak and its families and so far it has been well received. Several families have already taken the time to meet with Paula and/or Nicole to discuss the agreement before turning it in, but we are still happy to set up meetings or phone calls with other families who may have questions or concerns about this new document. Keep in mind that we do not want anyone's attendance to wane due to the rate increase or the implementation of this new agreement.

The 2020 financial agreements will go out the first of the year. If you have any questions, or would like some assistance filling it out, please feel free to call Paula or Nicole at (719)687-3000 or stop in anytime. We appreciate your continued support as we strive to provide the highest quality adult day services in the Pikes Peak Region.
Walk with us as we represent Teller County in the Walk to End Alzheimer's on September 21st at America the Beautiful Park in Colorado Springs.
