News and Reminders
Priority Registration – Due By April 6th
It’s that time of year again to save your spot for the next school year! We hope that we will have the pleasure of having your family with us for another year, and that you will take this opportunity to reserve your spot. The registration fee for the new year, if paid between March 19th-April 6th, will b 50% off, which means $62.50 for one child, or $87.50 for families with more than one child. This is a great deal and a great way to ensure that you have a spot for next year!
Summer Camp Registration Has Started
Our school agers are going to have a blast at our “Make Your Mark” summer camp this year! We are now accepting reservations for summer for school age children and our calendars are ready to go! We have some really great activities planned ranging from drone classes to field trips to a talent show! School Age parents, register now for summer to hold your spot! The summer camp registration fee is $75.
Box Car Parade – Friday, April 13th
We are so excited about our annual box car parade! We will use this event to kickoff our events for Week of the Young Child that will be happening in the following week. We had such a blast with our box car parade last year we decided to do it again this year. This is a great time to brainstorm and build a box car with your child. On Friday the 13th, we will “drive” around the school to display our cars. After our parade, our Intermediate and Pre-K classes will enjoy a “drive in” movie in our School Age room, where they can park their cars, much on popcorn, and watch “Cars”. Don’t know a thing about box cars? There are tons of resources on the internet. This website can help get you started: https://www.parenting.com/gallery/how-make-box-car
