A Note from Our Principal
Wow!! I cannot believe that summer is almost over. From the visitors, field trips and fun activities, we have had our school buzzing with excitement. I would like to take this moment to thank you for your continued support and dedication to our Xplor school family. I appreciate your kind words and positive feedback as we transition into the fall.
Kids Helping Kids: Alex’s Lemonade Stand
As part of our company’s initiative, Kids Helping Kids, our school age kiddos worked together for three weeks on a community fundraiser for Alex’s Lemonade Stand. They really got engaged and thanks to the generosity of our families, the school age kids raised $900 for the foundation. This was over their goal of $500.00. We are so proud of what they accomplished!
2017- 2018 School Year
The first day of school at Xplor of Circle C is August 21st. Many of our children will be dropped off into their new classrooms. We are so excited for the new additions to our Links 2 Learning Curriculum which will enhance each child’s learning every day. We look forward to a fantastic school year filled with new learning experiences and fun!
Teacher Appreciation Initiative
Teachers work diligently towards ensuring that our children achieve individual success and we would like to honor them by partnering with parents in a random gift card campaign. If you have any gift cards that you would like to donate; please drop them off at the front desk. These gifts cards will be randomly given to teachers to show them our appreciation.
National Accreditation Commission Process Begins
The National Accreditation Commission or NAC provides “…early childhood leaders the opportunity to demonstrate and document quality performance using research-based criteria and evidence-based practices” and Xplor of Circle C is about to begin this process. This will require participation from our parents through parent surveys evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of our program. More information will be coming soon!
