Weekly Update

Next up...Week 14!

Wasn't today beautiful??!!!! It was SO good to see everyone! I could have stayed and chatted all afternoon. The plan is to still have Feb 15th off. We will extend our CC year out one week...so instead of our last Monday of class being on April 25th it will fall on May 2nd. Our "end of the year celebration" will be during the evening that weekend. Exact date is undecided. I will update soon!! Since we will be off Feb 15th the tutors and I thought it would be fun for the kids to celebrate Valentines on Monday in each individual classroom. The kids can bring store bought valentine cards or make their own and personalize it. Keep in mind food allergies if you decide to give out candy or cookies.

For Monday- week 14

Registration for 2016-2017 is upon us!!

2016-2017 REGISTRATION: New Registration forms are available on the CC website. Here are the dates for registration –

· Currently enrolled families (that's you) at a community may register at that community beginning February 1st.

· Transfers from one community to another may begin February 15th. *This means that a currently enrolled family could lose their spot for next year to a transferring family if they do not get their forms and fees to the director by February 14th*

· New families may register March 1st.


FYI: Our community will have open house just about every other week from now until week 24 so that families that are interested in CC can come in (by appointment) to observe how CC works. I have invited those that are interested in coming to an open house to stay on through lunch with us so that they can ask questions. Who better to ask than those of us already involved with CC, right?!
