Kids' Club Happenings...

Throughout the past month, the children continued to work on their knitting. Many children have been finger knitting as well as loom knitting. We have been focusing on getting our knitting together for the Children's Exhibit next month. Stop by Northville Square, downtown Northville, April 2-16 and see what the children have been working on.

Homework...

We have recently started a new homework procedure. The children come to group time and check in and then they can sign the homework sign in sheet. A teacher will walk the children that have signed up for the homework room down to the Kids' Club room. At the room, the children have the opportunity to work on homework or reading while the room is completely silent. Many children have taken advantage of this quiet time!

We post the homework sign in sheet on top of the sign out clipboard so that parents can see whether or not their child worked on their homework for the day.

Staff Updates...

It was sad to see Ms. Danielle leave. However, it has been really nice to have Mr. Matt back as the Lead Assistant for Kids' Club. The children have been very excited for Mr. Matt's return!

Important Reminders...

Drop off procedure: Please be sure to walk your child into the Kids' Club room every morning and sign them in.


Pick up Procedure: Please remember to sign your child out daily.


Procedure for absences: Please remember to send a note when your child will not be attending Kids' Club on their regular scheduled day. Options for notes: Write a note, write in the parent notebook by the sign in/out sheet, or email.

If you choose email, it is a good idea to email Ms. Wendy and Mr. Matt at

wightmwe@northvilleschools.org and mcglinma@northvilleschools.org.
