HAPPY NEW YEAR! We sure hope everyone enjoyed a fabulous holiday! Sorry this is getting posted late…but it’s been hard to let go of the holidays for me! Can you believe we’ve already got our first week of classes of the New Year under our belts?
2017 ended with our fantastic Holiday Socials…thank you to everyone who came out to spend the morning with us. (And thank you for the delicious goodies that you all brought to the celebration as well!) We always enjoy the Socials, and the chance to get to visit with all of you. And as you may have noticed, I am a HUGE Christmas fan. It’s my favourite time of year, which may be why it was so hard for me to let go this year. (Gets harder every year! Always makes me sad when all the sparkly decorations have to come down.)
On behalf of the staff and myself, I’d also like to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU for all the beautiful Christmas gifts that you spoiled us with. We are very touched.
Mrs. Dutt will be back…but was delayed in India by a couple of weeks. She is planning to be back at the centre on Monday January 29th, assuming all goes as planned.
January has a couple of important dates that you need to be aware of, so read on to see what’s happening this month:
Scholastic Orders Due:
The book orders are due on Tuesday Jan. 23. Scholastic Canada has been working hard to make the whole system more user friendly, so you can now order and pay online! For more information, you can go here. Thank you, as always, for your continued support. Your purchase of books helps us to keep our classroom bookshelves well-stocked for the children’s use. Be sure to check your child’s folder for this month’s book flyers.
Let’s get cozy! The children are invited to wear their pajamas to school. (And as always, it is completely optional. Not everyone thinks it’s fun!) Please remember that running shoes are the preferred footwear for the children’s safety in the classroom and gym.
Pajama days will be Thursday Jan.25 and Friday Jan.26.
Hard to believe, but it is that time of year again! It has always been our policy that currently enrolled families have first option at spaces for the upcoming school year. Advance enrolment forms will be in the children’s folders next week. The completed forms and required cheque(s) are due by Monday January 29th. The opportunity for advance enrolment applies to siblings and family members of currently enrolled families as well, so make sure you pass along the information to any family members who are looking to sign up with us!
AND: Exciting news! Beginning in September 2018, our classes will be 3 hours long! Classes will run from 9:00am-12:00pm.
We will open up registration to the general public on February 1st.
Please take a look at our storm closure policy here so that it is fresh in your mind in case of bad weather! We’ve been lucky so far, (though we did have a couple of close calls!) so we will keep our fingers crossed that our luck holds.
I think that’s it for now.
It’s nice to have everyone back, and some new faces join us, for the remainder of the year.
Happy New Year!
