We also appreciate your continued patience with us as we get our classrooms organized! I belive we should be good now, so thank you so much. We will be working on writing our zoophonics letters with some cool crafts and doing a lot of science activities that involve ice and salt! We hope that everyones holiday was terrific. We are going to start including some fun math activities in our everyday tasks and activitoes. This month our zoo-phonics friends are P, B, and R.

Operation Tot Spot Gives Back: Pajama Drive!
Congrats to the.......SHERLOCKS!!!!!!!! They are the winners of our Pajama Drive! :) TTS raised 72 pairs of pajamas. Scholastic will match our pajama donations and donate 72 books as well.

TTS Parents are the BEST!!!!
Tax Time is Approaching...
Dear Tot Spot Families,
I am sending this email because we are getting close to the end of the year and therefore close to tax season. Because of our changes from Rapid Tuition to Tuition Express there will be two-year end summaries (a mid year summary for Rapid Tuition and a year-end summary). I emailed all our families when we transferred from Rapid Tuition at the time of the change, so please check your email history for that email. As far as Tuition Express, every family has direct access to your billing receipts through www.myprocare.com . If you have already signed up with www.myprocare.com you are ahead of the game. However, if you have not, you can register from this link www.myprocare.com. You will use the email you received this message from to login. If you have any problems, please let me know.
Let it Snow Let it Snow Let it Snow!!!

The Parent's Spotlight
Thank you parents for being an amazing part of the Tot Spot family. We appreciate all that you do! It really does take a village, & what a lovely one we have here ♡
Remember there is a suggestion box in the lobby, and we love to hear about ideas to enhance the learning environment for your children.
Thank you to the LoGreco's for Dramatic Play donations
Thank you to the Bohde's for your book donations
Thank you to the Blough's for the mittens and toys
Thank you to the Holland's for the toy donations
Thank you to everyone for donating to the PTO. They raised enough money to be able to give everyone a nice gift card.
Thank you to all who brought in treats and gifts for the teachers and even Admin team. We appreciate it more than you know and it definitely made the holidays special for all of us so thank you!! TTS truly has amazing parents!
Would you like to donate?
We could use:
· Baby puzzles
· Food Coloring
· Musical Instruments
· Empty Clean Plastic Jars (Mayo, PB, etc. Jar)
· EXPO Dry Erase Marker Cleaning Spray
· Scrap Paper
· Salt - Regular and Rock Salt
· Is there ever a time when you say to yourself, " I wonder if The Tot Spot would want this"? We could use it in so many ways. You may have babies, but the whole school is yours. Everything can turn into a sensory activity or learning experience. So, before you throw out your junk, ask your teacher if it could be used

Question: Would you rather be able to be invisible for a day or fly for a day and why?
Good Bye Ms. Danielle
Tot Spot Parents,
I want to first off thank you for all that you do. You have all been so amazing to me while I have been here. Thank you for letting me get to know and love your kiddos like they are my own. It has truly been a pleasure getting to know each and every one of them and watching them grow and become who they are.
My last day will be January 4th.
Again, I have been extremely blessed while working here and from the bottom of my heart thank you for all being so kind in opening your arms and being such a great second family for me.
I will never forget you or your children. I hope you all the best
