All Learning Center classrooms have shifted to the hallway immediately to your left upon entry. As you've noticed, the security team at church is installing doors to help better ensure the safety of all children. The doors are not yet completed, but they have been installed. That is the reason for the classroom change. Please drop off backpacks rooms 166 or 164 and place on the hooks there. (This does not apply to Camp Stone students. Take your bags to the gym)


They're coming home dirty! Feel free to provide a smock, old t shirt or something you don't mind your child ruining. The teachers were all instructed to make learning hands on every day, and they are making sure of that! With hands on instruction comes...a mess:) Label whatever it is you want your child to wear to prevent messes, and be sure to communicate that with the teachers at drop off, so they can relay to Ms. Sharnise and Ms. Plummer what the child should wear.


Behavior is usually not an issue in the summer, as the kids are constantly moving anyway. However, new this summer, every kid has a conduct card for their labs. Once the students receive a certain number of stickers, they will be rewarded. Check with the teacher daily to see where she puts her conduct card and see how many stickers your child earns each day!
