A.C.E. Adventurers

September Update

Welcome to September and a new year of fun and adventures in ACE! Now that Springboro Schools and Bright Beginnings are both in session, our regular routine has been taking shape. Our goal is to provide a safe, fun, and loving learning environment for your child/children during his/her off school hours, while encouraging cooperation, enrichment and respect among all children. We hope your child will enjoy his/her time at ACE with his/her friends here, and are looking forward to a positive year ahead!

September

Here's a glimpse of what we'll be doing this month!


Fruit of the Spirit: self-control

Bible Verse: “God said "I know you by name." (Exodus 33:17)

Mission:


Special Days:

2nd - Labor day - No School and No A.C.E or Kindergarten Exploration

18th - Early Release from Springboro Schools

Tour of the Continents: North America

We will be exploring North America this month! Ask your kiddos what they have learned about our amazing continent!

G.P.S.

We will explore our amazing Creation through Bible stories and prayer. Self control and respect are part of our discussions this month. We will be visiting North America so there is plenty of art and music to appreciate as well.

Dress to Play!

Please talk with your child about how comfortable you both are with getting messy. Many of the kids are ready to dive in and get dirty when they get to us in the afternoon. Please talk to you child and let them know if you are okay with that, and you may even send in play clothes for after school if that makes you and them more comfortable! Thank you!

Parenting workshop

  • My kids are driving me crazy!
  • I yell at my kids all the time!
  • I’ve tried everything and nothing works!
  • I can’t say anything to my kids without it turning into a battle!


Does this sound like you? You are not alone. Parenting is hard.


Help is on the way! Join us for dinner and a 2 hour workshop that will change the way you view children. Dr. Jenni Jacobs will present The Psychology Behind Behavior on September 25th from 6:30 – 8:30.


This training is a must-have for all teachers and parents of young children. This unique workshop blends the worlds of psychology and early childhood to help you understand why children (and adults) behave the way they do. We’ll take a deep dive into behavior and look at how the brain influences behavior and the typical reasons why children misbehave. You will walk away with a better understanding of why the children are doing what they are doing, insights into your own reactions, and strategies to help.


The most requested trainer in the greater Cincinnati area, Dr. Jenni Jacobs is the founder and CEO of The Learning Professor where she develops high-quality courses in early childhood education. As a former professor, classroom teacher, and parent she brings over 28 years of experience in working with children.


There’s no instruction manual available for teaching and parenting children, and it is Jenni’s passion to make this job easier and to help parents and teachers feel less stressed and more successful. Her approach is energetic and compassionate, but she’s not afraid to tell it how it is.


Here's what others have said:


  • “This class changed how I view children. I wish I would have had this information when my children were younger! Every parent should take this class!”
  • “Thank you for this course! It has really helped me understand my students as well as my own children. It also gave me coping skills for myself to try and remain calm.”


The cost of this special event is $15 per family. This includes dinner, childcare, and the workshop. Dinner will be from 6:00 - 6:30 p.m., with the workshop following from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.Please register using the link below. If you require childcare, please give your child's name and age in the sign up. Feel free to invite friends and family members, you do not want to miss this event!

Mission for September - Patriot Day

For Patriot day, we are challenging everyone to participate in one random act of kindness. This can be something your family decides together, or you could bring in something for the Springboro Community Assistance Center's backpack program. At this time, they are in need of: individually packaged goldfish, granola bars, fruit snacks, etc. that will be made into week-end goody bags. :)


Your kiddo can also dress in red, white, and blue to show their pride for our country if they would like to!


About the backpack program:

Each day many children go home to houses with no food. Many times the only food they have is the food that they get at school. S.C.A.C. (Springboro Community Assistance Center) works with area groups to help send back packs full of food home with these children on Fridays for the week-end.

Prayer Requests

  • Prayers for Ric C. and family for healing
  • Prayers of healing for Ben Morkel
  • Jacob G. who was just diagnosed with leukemia and has begun treatments.
  • Nova is home and doing well, please pray for continued recovery
  • Prayers of joy for the Conley family on the birth of baby Alice Ann!
