Little Millers Preschool

Hazel Dell Elementary School

Welcome Back!

I hope you've all had an amazing fall break and you've been able to enjoy this gorgeous weather with your kiddos! I'm so excited to get back into our daily routine and see everyone's smiling faces in the morning. We will be welcoming Ms. Becky Keating to our team this week. She will be working from 1:30-6:00 p.m., and is very excited to get to know everyone. I look forward to having her as part of our LMP HD team!

Our door bell has been on the fritz and is only ringing in the classroom sporadically. We will try to keep an eye out for you when you arrive (you can still try to ring the doorbell). If no one comes to the door, you can either text me, go to the blue door at the front of the building and knock, go through the front office, or call the classroom (773-2914 x22210).

This week is Red Ribbon Spirit Week, here are the themes for each day:

Monday: I'm a "jean-ius" and "red-y" to be drug free: wear jeans and red to kick off Red Ribbon Week.

Tuesday: Real heroes are Drug Free! You have the POWER to be Drug Free: Wear your super hero shirt to school.

Wednesday: Saying NO to drugs is no SWEAT for me: wear your sweats/sweatshirts.

Thursday: Stay in the Game, Be Drug Free, and Team Up Against Drugs: wear your favorite team logo/shirt.

Friday: We've Got the Spirit to Dream Big. Hazel Dell chooses to be Drug Free: wear your Noblesville/Hazel Dell spirit wear.

A note about tuition

Dear Parents,

In an effort to keep our Little Millers accounts up to date, we would like to remind families that payments are due by the end of business on Thursday. Notice of missing payments will be sent Friday afternoon via email. If payment is not received in full by Monday your child will not be able to return to LMP and will be placed on our wait list. Upon receipt of your payment, your child can be reinstated only if space is still available. We appreciate your understanding as we ensure our wonderful staff are supported and focus solely on your children.

Payments for Fall Break continue to be $170 for one week with the option of 6pm pick-up for $30. These payments are in addition to the regular payment schedule. Payments are due prior to the fall break programming.

Also, we wanted to share an update to the on-line payment options for LMP. We continue to research the best possible options for an on-line payment and are considering a few companies. Little Millers wants to ensure we are rolling out the best option for our families, and the program which is chosen is a long term solution. Please continue to be patient with the process as we do hear your request for an on-line payment option.

Finally - tax statements for the 2015/16 school year will be sent home from the district office at the end of January 2017.

Please contact Stacy McIntyre at with any questions or concerns.
