We are so excited to introduce our new curriculum enhancements for Intermediate through Pre-K 2. SPARK-Sports, Play, & Active Recreation for Kids, is a comprehensive activity program that encompasses many developmental areas through multiple play situations. Our students will engage in a SPARK activity one to two times per day. These active classes promote physical activity in creative and fun ways while setting a foundation for a lifetime of health and fitness. Be sure to check out the Indoor Gym and keep an eye out for ways to engage at home through Links 2 Home.
Fire Prevention Week is October 8th – 14th. During this week at Xplor we will be discussing fire safety and conducting our monthly fire drill. On October 9th the Fort Worth Fire Department will visit at 10:00am (unless there is an emergency). Please use this week to extend their learning at homer by discussing fire safety and your family fire plan. It is also a great time to test the smoke alarms within your home. Checking them while the children are there could be beneficial for them to recognize that sound and what it means. Check out NFPA.org for more information.

Fall is a great time to go through your child’s cubby and ensure they have the items needs to comfortably enjoy the coming months. Students should have a full change of clothes that includes: pants, a long-sleeved shirt, socks, and underwear. Please be sure to label all clothing items and jackets with your child’s name or initials.
Teacher Holiday Party
Each year we have a party for our staff in December to show our appreciation and we are always able to provide that with your help. Through a series our auctions, bake sales, and Santa photos, this year will be no different. The teachers are already planning their designs for pumpkin paintings and winter canvases. These will be auctioned off and all of the proceeds will go into the Party Fund. Our bake sales and Santa pics are fun ways to add to the pot. More details to come.

Professional Development Day Reminder
Xplor is committed to giving our teachers the best trainings that are suited for the age group that they teach. It is vital that they stay informed of new techniques while refreshing and sharpening the skills that they already. To provide them this training we have two Professional Development Days in which our Preschool Program (Infants through Pre-K 2) will be closed. Our second Professional Development Day is next month, November 10th. Please make your calendars to make other arrangements for care that day. Our School Age Program will be open as normal for before and after school transportation.
