A Note From Our Principal,
We hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with loved ones and we enjoyed celebrating with you all last month. As the winter holidays approach we have many special events planned for our students and families and look forward to spending time with you all. We’ve also enclosed important winter and holiday procedure reminders in this newsletter. Please read through it carefully and reach out if you have any questions or concerns. Happy Holidays!
Inclement Weather Reminders
We do not always follow the closure schedule of the local public schools because we don’t have to contend with the same transportation issues as public schools. Our goal is to be open as many days as possible to support our working parents. If we must close because our teachers cannot safely get to work, you will receive a notification via Links 2 Home as soon as the closure is announced. We also post notifications on our website and Facebook page.
Winter Clothing Reminder
If you’ve not already done so, please check your child’s cubby to ensure they have an extra set of weather appropriate clothes. Students also need to come to school each day with a jacket and dressed warm enough to play outside for part of the day. If the weather is brisk we still go outside for active games and SPARK activities and want everyone to be able to participate!
Our school is closed on December 24th and 25th for Christmas and December 31st and January 1st for New Year’s Day.
Winter Break Camp
We will be holding Winter Break Camp for our School-Age students from December 20th-January 6th. In addition to several field trips we will have STEAM learning opportunities and holiday themed projects planned. Students may attend all or part of Winter Break Camp, please let us know by December 18th if your child will be attending. Camp forms can be found at the front desk.
Classroom Holiday Celebrations—Friday, December 13th
Through the month of December our classes will be learning about different winter holidays and customs. On Friday, December 13th, our students will showcase their learning and the holiday décor they’ve created with a holiday celebration. Parents are welcome to attend and we will share extra photos on Links 2 Home for those who cannot come. Some classes are collecting small extras for their celebratory snack, please check with your child’s teacher for more information.
Holiday Giving Project
This year, Carrington Academy Suwanee is partnering with Kare for Kids by sponsoring several children in the North Georgia area on our Star Tree. Stars can be selected, and each has a specific item on it that each child has requested. We look forward to having all of the stars selected, and items returned by December 11th. Thank you in advance for your support.
