A Note From Our Principal,
We hope your children enjoyed their fall lessons, pumpkin themed activities, and classroom celebrations last month. Seeing our students enjoy their Halloween costumes and fall attire is one of the highlights of the year for us. Thank you for allowing us to be part of these special occasions! This month we are focusing on gratitude and connecting with our community. As part of this focus we are busily preparing for our Holiday Giving campaign. This year, we are collecting money for the Forsyth County Fraternal Order of Police. They are currently working on their big Christmas program for the less fortunate and handicapped children here in Forsyth County. Money collected will provide warm winter jackets and toys for Christmas.We will be collecting donations November 1st through December 10th. We are also holding a can food drive to help re-stock a local food pantry from November 1st to the 21st. Decorative boxes have been placed outside each classroom for your can food/non-perishable item donations. Starting November 18th, we will have our Star Tree up for families to pick a star to help a child this holiday season. Thank you for all your big hearts.
Illness Policy Reminder
Our parents are vital partners in helping us to maintain a safe and healthy environment for the students in our school. The most important thing you can do to assist us in creating a healthy environment is to keep your child home if they are ill. This reduces the spread of illness and allows your child to fully recuperate. Children may not attend school until they have been symptom free for 24 hours if they display any of the following:
- Fever of 100 degrees of more—must be fever free for 24 hours with no fever-reducing medicine before returning to school
- Vomiting, diarrhea or stomach upset
- Heavy nasal discharge requiring wiping every 3-5 minutes
- Persistent, non-productive or barking cough
- Sore throat
- Skin rash, including diaper rash
- Head lice
- Symptoms of a communicable disease
- Fussy, cranky behavior unlike child’s normal demeanor that may indicate illness
For more information please see our Parent Handbook or reach out to a member of our administrative team.
School-Age Thanksgiving Camp
Each of the elementary schools we pick-up from is closed November 25th through November 29th in observance of Thanksgiving. We are open November 25th – 27th and holding a special camp for our School-Age students. Students will be engaged in festive activities each day. On November 26th, we will have teachers join us from the Out-of-the-Box Art Studio for a special In-House Field Trip.
Please let us know if your student will be in attendance!
Each of our classrooms will be celebrating Thanksgiving with a special lunch on November 15th at your child’s lunch time. Students are making their own place mats and other festive crafts for this fun event. Please check with your child’s classroom for any special instructions and feel free to attend if you’re able. We will be sharing plenty of photos through Links 2 Home as well!
