Please Make A Note…
We will be closed December 24 and 25. In order to schedule teachers efficiently and to allow them a few days of well-deserved vacation, we need to know in advance the days you will need care. Please give us your schedule for Dec. 26 – 28 and Dec. 31 – Jan 4. We will be working from unusual schedules, so for these dates, we would appreciate 24 hours notice for changes in schedules.
Several parents have expressed their appreciation for the dedicated work of our teachers and have asked about giving Christmas gifts. We appreciate these kind thoughts and intentions but would ask that no gifts be given to individual teachers. If you wish to express your thanks in the form of a gift, we would prefer it be one which the teachers can share or one that the children can enjoy such as books, records, magic markers, shaving cream, play dough, tinker toys, push/pull toys or other similar toys.
This may sound like a strange request, but do you have any old mismatched or outgrown socks or mittens that we could have? We will use them as a collection for sorting, matching, and all sorts of learning activities.
We would also like to have a picture of your family for this month. We will be doing lots of hands-on things like counting each family, adding two families, and counting all the freckles (just kidding). A snapshot would be just great. If you send a studio portrait, we will copy it and return the original to you. What a great gift you give your children when you are interested in their education.
