A Note From Our Principal
We hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with loved ones! As the winter holidays approach, we have many special events planned for our students and families. We look forward to spending time with you all. We’ve also enclosed important winter and holiday procedure reminders in this newsletter. Please read through it carefully and reach out if you have any questions, concerns. Happy Holidays!
Inclement Weather Reminders
We do not always follow the closure schedule of the local public schools because we don’t have to contend with the same transportation issues as public schools. Our goal is to be open as many days as possible to support our working parents. If we must close because our teachers cannot safely get to work, you will receive a notification via Links 2 Home as soon as the closure is announced.
Winter Clothing Reminder
If you’ve not already done so, please check your child’s cubby to ensure they have an extra set of weather appropriate clothes. Students also need to come to school each day with a jacket and dressed warm enough to play outside for part of the day. If the weather is brisk, we still go outside for active games and SPARK activities and want everyone to be able to participate! Please make sure to label your child’s clothing!
Our school is closed on Tuesday, December 25th for Christmas Day and Tuesday, January 1st for New Year’s Day.
Winter Break Camp
We will be holding Winter Break Camp for our School-Age students from December 24th-January 7th. In addition to several field trips, we will have community service activities, STEAM learning opportunities and holiday themed projects planned. Students may attend all or part of Winter Break Camp. Please let us know by December 18th if your child will be attending.
Classroom Holiday Celebrations—Friday, December 21st
Through the month of December our classes will be learning about different winter holidays and customs. On Friday, December 21st our students will showcase their learning and the holiday décor they’ve created with a holiday celebration. Each teacher is making their own plans for the celebration!
Holiday Giving Project
Check out our Christmas tree in the front lobby to choose the name of a patient at “The Legacy at Crystal Falls.” Each patient has his/her “Christmas wish list” on the angel ornament. School Age children will deliver the gifts after the donation period has ended. We will be collecting donations Dec. 10-Dec. 28. The Legacy is a local memory care facility.
Make sure to pick-up a school calendar, or download it HERE, to keep up with all of this month’s special events and activities!
