A Note From Our Principal
Thank you all for your participation in our Halloween events last month! We loved getting to spend extra time with you and seeing our students in their costumes is always memorable for our staff. This will be a busy month as we head into the holiday season and we are looking forward to spending it with you and your children. Please reach out if you have any questions, concerns or need additional care/schedule changes during this time of year. We are grateful for you all. Happy Thanksgiving!
Alice Reed, Principal

Preschool Professional Development Day: November 12th
Our Preschool classrooms will be closed Monday, November 12th for professional development training. We will continue to provide before and after school care for all of our school age students.
We will be closed on Thursday, November 22nd for Thanksgiving but our hours the rest of the week remain the same. Children in our School-Age program are welcome to stay with us the week of the 19th as the public schools we support have various schedules for closure. We have fun fall events planned for each day and love having our older students spend extra time with us during Thanksgiving week. Check out our calendar of events below! Please reach out to us if your child will be attending so we can staff accordingly.
Classroom Thanksgiving Celebrations—Friday, November 16th
We love celebrating Thanksgiving with our students so that we can share how much they mean to us and how much we all mean to each other. Our classes will be learning about Thanksgiving all month and will be making decorations to celebrate the season. On Friday, November 16th we are making a special turkey lunch for our students. Parents are welcome to attend but we will share lots of photos on Links 2 Home for those who cannot.
Movie and Pajama Day—Friday, November 23rd
