Parking Reminder

When looking for a spot for drop off and pick up, please keep in mind that you are not allowed to park in front of the garage doors near the dumpster. Those belong to the priest at St. Mary's and we don't want to inconvenience him. If you are coming to pick up after 4:30PM and there is a church staff's spot open, feel free to park there. Otherwise, go down along the brick wall and pullover as far as you can. Hopefully this will keep the alley free of congestion.

ALiCE Training for All Little Angels Staff

In February, all Little Angels Staff will undergo mandatory A.L.i.C.E. (Alert, Lockdown, inform, Counter, Evacuate) training. This program prepares teachers if faced with an active shooter or violent intruder of any kind.

Smart Discipline Class

Would you come out of your snug home for a guaranteed way to stop the fighting and bickering between your kids….or to get them to do what you ask the first time (without screaming your lungs out!)? If your answer is “Yes”, you’ll not want to miss the nationally acclaimed Smart Discipline for Parents Seminar that Little Angels Learning Center and the First United Methodist Chuch is bringing to our area. The information shared has benefited over 50,000 kids in the past ten years and is “America’s Most Well Attended Parenting Workshop.”

This FREE two-hour seminar will entertain and inform you as you learn the Smart Discipline System, plus how to insure your children will grow up with positive self-esteem. The speaker, Jim Garnett, is a Nationally Certified Parent Trainer, and brings to each seminar 30 years experience in family counseling. With a delightful blend of humor and honesty he describes the problems parents face, and offers practical solutions. We already know what doesn't work; come and hear what does!

The FREE seminar will be held on February 20, 2013 at 6:00PM. Books and tapes will be available! Attending this seminar could make a difference in your home for years to come. Registration information will be available soon.

Note About Paperwork

When turning in any kind of paperwork, please place it in the lockbox (where your tuition payment goes) or in the parent folder outside of Cathy's office. Another great option is to scan it and email it in to Cathy.

Thanks for all of the compliments!

All the teachers have really enjoyed hearing the notes from the compliment jar being read at the monthly staff meetings. They look forward to them and remind Cathy to grab them if she forgot. :) It's been a great morale booster so keep 'em comin'!
