A Note From Our Principal,
We hope that you all had a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving with loved ones. As the winter holidays approach, we have many special activities planned for our students and look forward to spending the season with them. We’ve also enclosed several important winter and holiday reminders in this newsletter. Please read through it carefully and reach out if you have any questions or concerns. Happy holidays!
School Closure Reminders
As a reminder, we do not always follow the closure schedule of the local public schools. Our goal is to be open as many days as possible to support our working parents. If we must close for any reason, you will receive a notification via Links 2 Home as soon as the closure is announced. We also post notifications on our website.
Winter Clothing Reminder
If you’ve not already done so, please check with your child’s teacher 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 warmly enough to play outside for part of the day. We want everyone to be able to participate!
Our school is closed on December 24th and 25th for Christmas Eve & Day as well as December 31st and January 1st for New Year’s Eve & Day.
Winter Break Camp
We will be holding Winter Break Camp for our school-age students from December 23rd thru January 5th, excluding the closures above. Students will participate in community service activities, STEAM learning opportunities, holiday themed projects and virtual activities. Students may attend all or part of Winter Break Camp, please let us know if your child will be attending.
Classroom Holiday Celebrations—Friday, December 18th
Through the month of December, our classes will be learning about different winter holidays and customs. On Friday, December 18th, our students will showcase their learning and the holiday décor they’ve created with a classroom celebration. Students will be celebrating with story time, crafts and a special snack. We will miss having parents attend this year’s holiday celebrations and know that you all will enjoy the holiday crafts that your student brings home!
Holiday Giving Project
We are pleased to announce that we collected 375 food items to donate to our local food bank this year! Thank you so much for your support and participation!
We are currently collecting wish list items for families in need to support KARE for kids. This organization sponsors families to provide Christmas gifts to their children. There are a couple of wishes remaining. If you are granting a wish, please remember to return your unwrapped items to school no later than Friday, December 4th.
Love Our School? Review Us!
In today’s connected world, many families turn to online reviews to learn more about the reputation of schools. Just a reminder that you can find our school on Facebook, Google, Yelp and other online directories. We’d love more families like yours, so please consider spreading the word about our school.
