In the Classroom!
We are happy to welcome Alora into the 2's class! We are excited to have her play and explore with us.
Hannah, Lauren, Preston and Gianna are moving to the Preschool side! We are very excited for them. We know that they'll enjoy seeing their old friends and making new ones and teachers.
In Feburary, we are going to be working hard on lots of art projects. So be sure to watch our cubbies for any finished projects. During K week we are going to make our own Kangaroo pouches to hold all our treasure as we jump from place to place. For A week we'll make apples explode with vinegar and baking soda. Then we will be making more sensory bottles for Vincent Vampire Bat. We are also going to focus on asking our friend's permission before we give hugs. we know that it is lots of fun to show our friends we like them with hugs but they are not always ready to get one.
We look forward to seeing everybody at the Valentine's Day party on the 14th after naptime!
- Remind Me App: It's a free app that we're using to for simple reminders like show and share, friend of the week, physical due dates, etc. Our class code is 26kh9g
Goodbye to Ms. Erica! Thanks for all the love you provided our kiddos!
From Ms. EricaHey guys, I'm very sad to inform you all that I have left The Tot Spot. I have grown so much here and have met some amazing people. I've also had a chance to get to know and love every single child that I have come across. Thank you parents and Ms. Alisha for trusting me to take care of your children. That really means the world to me considering I was fairly new to teaching when I started. Now I feel like I've earned my title as a teacher and hope to add more to that title soon! I hope that I have been nothing less than a positive role model for our kiddos and that they always remember that there's always time to be silly & laugh. Thank you all again for all that you've done. Ill miss my babies dearly.
PS Save me a ticket for EVERY graduation, I will be there rain, sleet, bad hair day, or snow!
Official Weather Closure Policy:
When bad weather or other emergency situations occur, it may be necessary for TTS to cancel, delay, or close school early. Parents should have a well-communicated plan in place in the event of these emergency situations.
The safety of our students and staff is our number one priority any time a decision must be made regarding school closures and delays during a weather situation. We review information from emergency management and state highway administrators about road conditions, and look to HSE schools for guidance.
Due to the speed of updating, the official @TotSpotSchool Twitter account is generally the first and fastest mode of communication. Other communication channels will be updated as quickly as possible including app, email, and other social media, and news stations. The app lags behind for some so Twitter is first.
Weather alert example
TTS tries to make decisions in the evening, taking into account that parents need time to make proper arrangements. But when there is a lot of uncertainty, we wait to get the latest morning forecast. The decision is typically made around 5:30.
TTS provides information about closings and delays in many ways including:
Posted to the TTS Twitter and Facebook pages.
Posted to Daily Connect App
Email and text messages sent to parents (using Procare).
Group Me sent to employees
Email sent to employees
Notifications sent to WTHR, RTV6, and WISH TV News
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.

The Parent's Spotlight
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 Mrs. Held for coming in and volunteering!
Thank you to several parents for clothes, diaper, and book donations
TTS truly has amazing parents!
Would you like to donate?
We could use
- Food Coloring
- Alka-Seltzer tablets
- Scrap Paper
- Storage Boxes
- Shoe Boxes with lids
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. 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!
The Teacher's Spotlight
Question: If you could master one instrument what would it be and why?
- Ms. Mikayla: The violin. I took lessons when I was very young but we moved and I couldn't continue. I always wanted to pick it back up and try it again
- Ms. Kit: I'd master the saxophone because every golden oldie song sounds amazing on a saxophone
- Ms. Alisha: Guitar so I can be cool like Drew (Emmett and Asher's Dad).
- Mr. Mike: Piano, because it’s soothing.
- Ms. Le Andra: I would learn Guitar! I've always wanted to learn how to play
- Ms. Katie: I would master the guitar. I played a little bit in high school, but then gave up and I would love to be able to sit outside around a fire and play/create music.
- Ms. Erin: Drums because I like the double kick pedal, it's a challenge
- Ms. Maggie: If I could master one instrument it would be the piano.I would want it to be the piano because it would help with my poor hand eye coordination, and posture.
