A note of thankfulness
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! Please read the newsletter below for information on what’s going on at our school this month.
Parent Information Reminders
After enrolling at our school all parents receive an email from Alma, our online family management system. Alma allows you to pay your tuition, manage who is able to pick up your child and keep your contact information up to date in our system. Please make sure that your information is up to date in Alma by accessing your family account here (add your school Alma link from ‘My Account’ under parent section on website). You will need to login to Alma with your username, which is typically firstname.lastname but we can confirm this for you if needed. Please reach out to us for more information.
Fall Festival and Open House—Saturday, November 10th
Our annual Fall Festival and Open House will be held on November 10th from 10-1. We will have Fall-festival style games, crafts and more. Do you know anyone who is new to the area, adding to their family or who might be unhappy with their child’s current preschool? Invite them to our event! If they enroll at our school, you will receive a free week of tuition for your oldest child.

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. Please reach out to us if your child will be attending so we can staff accordingly.
