A Note from your Principal
Fall is up and running and we are not looking back! Things have been going great in all of our programs and we couldn’t be more thankful for your support, engagement and kind words of appreciation. Look for more exciting things coming your way soon. As we enter the Holiday season there are many ways for parents to engage and experience our classroom events!
We are excited to introduce our Physical Education curriculum enhancement for Beginner through Pre-K students. 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 daily. 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. Please use this week to extend your child’s learning at home by discussing fire safety and your family fire plan. It is also a great time to test the smoke alarms. 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.

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 school 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.
