October Newsletter

A Word from the Site Supervisor

Dear Parents,


October brings lots of excitement, from Halloween, to chilly weather, and even some new exciting additions to our program! First, I am excited to announce that we will begin doing a general store every Friday to raise money for future parties. Items will range from $0.10-$1.00 and will be things like special snacks and trinkets. If you would like to have your child participate, you may either send them with money, or you may give me or Ms. Cheyenne an envelope or bag with your child’s name on it, and we will save it for Fridays. Second, with cold days and early nights ahead, please be sure children have jackets for when we go outside.

Lastly, we will be kicking off a new reward system into gear for fantastic behavior. Any child that ends the day with a clip above “Ready To Learn” will receive points:

Green: 1 point

Blue: 2 points

Purple: 3 points

Points may be cashed in for small prizes, or saved for larger prizes! Prizes so far include:

5 Points:

Coupon for first to get snack

Coupon to sit wherever you want for the day

Coupon to be any staff’s helper for the day

Coupon for pajama day

Coupon to choose first game to get out during play time

15 Points:

Coupon to bring in show and tell item

Coupon to decide group game for the day

Coupon to bring a costume to wear for the day

25 Points:

Pick 1-3 colors and Mr. Tyler will make a custom paracord bracelet for you


Thank you,

Mr. Tyler
