October 15 - Week 2

Welcome Back

What a wonderful first full week of preschool. We enjoyed the smiles, hugs and laughter of your children. Your children are a delight and it has been a smooth opening. Thank you so much for all of the supplies (and many extras) that you provided. We will be using them throughout the year.

Paperwork

The following forms are in your blue parent information folder. Please complete the information and return them next week:


  • Blue Information Form/Photo Release: Please make sure you sign and date the photo release on the back side of this form.
  • White Directory Information: We would like to have the information by the end of next week so we can have the directory available by the beginning of November.


Vaccination Record: Please provide a vaccination record for your child. If you have a well visit coming up, just let me know when to expect your child's record. You will receive a note in your child's folder today if we are still missing your record.


Folders: Each child received a plastic pocket folder with his/her name on it. Those folders will go home every Thursday. Please review and empty them during the weekend and return them on your child's next day of school.


SeeSaw App: Most of our communication this year will be through this Newsletter and your class SeeSaw app. Please download the Family Seesaw App or you will miss fun pictures and teacher announcements.

Color and Spirit Days

Color Days: Our next Color Day is Thursday, October 29. Wear Orange or Halloween shirts on this day. The pictures below are from our Black Day today.


Spirit Days: The last Thursday of each month is "Spirit Day" and we will celebrate in a special way. Because we had to cancel our external events this year, we decided to host fun internal events in our classrooms each month. Our first Spirit Day this month is Thursday, October 29 and we will have Halloween parties in each classroom. Stay tuned for more information from your child's teacher about items that you can donate for the celebration.


November 19: Feast Day - We will celebrate Thanksgiving in our classrooms.

December 17: PJ Day - We will all wear our pj's and enjoy some Christmas fun.

Ms. Carolyn

We are so blessed to have Ms. Carolyn at Unity Preschool. Ms. Carolyn has been helping Unity Preschool for the past 10 years! She is our Monday Assistant (for budget reasons, Ms. Linda does not work on Monday this year), Librarian, first call sub and helper whenever we need an extra pair of hands. Ms. Carolyn is a Fort Mill native and an avid Clemson fan. She also works in the FLYERS after school program at Fort Mill Elementary and at Unity as our Nursery Caregiver for the Two's. She loves the mountains, cruising and her sweet dog, Toto.

Car Line

Temperature Checks: In the morning, your child's Assistant will take your child's temperature while they are in the car and then assist them from the car. Please use your car tags in the morning for the month of October. This will help us as we get to know you, your child and your car.


Car Line: Just a reminder that we begin unloading in the morning at 8:45 a.m. We begin loading the Three's at 11:55 a.m. and the Four's at 12:10 p.m.


Car Tags: If you need extra car tags, let us know. If you place your car tag in the window, be careful if you roll down your window. Windows like to eat car tags:)!

Miscellaneous

Outside Reminders: We go outside every day as long as it is not raining or too cold. Please apply sunscreen in the morning and wear tennis shoes/close-toed shoes and socks. We have a mulch playground and a sandbox and comfort is more important than fashion.


Tuition: Our next tuition withdrawal date will be Monday, November 2.
