In the Classroom!
Welcome to our new friends Gavin, Emilia, and Sebastian!!!
This month we are still hoping for some beautiful snow since we have had ice already. We are looking forward to making snow angels! We also appreciate your continued patience with us as we get our classrooms organized! It all is coming together. We will be working on writing these letters with some cool crafts and doing a lot of science activities that involve ice and salt! We also will be doing a lot Christmas crafts so parents get ready for lots of sweet keepsakes from your little ones! We are going to start including some fun math activities to do also. This month our zoo-phonics friends are J, D, and, S. We will also be welcoming our new friends Gavin, Emilia, and Sebastian to the 2’s room!

Operation Tot Spot Gives Back: Pajama Drive!
Operation Tot Spot Gives Back- Winning Class gets a Pizza Party and the winning teacher earns PTO!!!
We are teaming up with Scholastic and participating in a pajama drive. We are collecting until December 13th.
Who are the pajamas and books helping?
The pajamas and books are helping at-risk children (ages 0–18) throughout the country. Often homeless, in foster care, or in poverty, their unstable, uncertain lives make them uniquely vulnerable as bedtime approaches. Each night, millions of children in this country have no bed to call their own—let alone pajamas to change into or books to escape into—and so they have no concept of a loving bedtime. The treasured ritual of changing into clean pajamas and tucking in with an enchanting bedtime story are unknown; some of these children, in fact, have never heard of pajamas
What pajama sizes are needed the most?
Although Pajama Program accepts new pajamas in all sizes, the most overlooked ones are generally children’s sizes 8 to adult 3XL. It is often the bigger, older children who are left out.
What kinds of pajamas should I collect?
New pajamas only.
Pajamas should be a complete set—a top and bottom, or an appropriate nightgown.
Pajamas for all seasons, but especially warm, cozy ones to help the children on our list during the long, cold months at this time of year.
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.
Let it Snow Let it Snow Let it Snow!!!
