Reading Olympics

The Reading Olympics will start on February 10th. For two weeks we will keep track of how many books your child has read. There will be prizes for the most book read! Please encourage your kids to participate in the Reading Olympics. We do this each year to encourage reading and as a reminder to put the screens down. The children really enjoy it! There will be specific information coming home with all the specifics.

Valentines Day

We will celebrate Valentine's Day on Friday, February 14th. Each class will have their own festivities, please see your teachers communications regarding what any particular class will be doing. If you choose to bring in treats for the class, please be aware that all treats must be commercially prepared and in their original packaging with a label. If you child chooses to distribute valentines, please be sure to include everyone in the class.

In-Service Day

We will be closed on Monday, 17th for In-Service Day. The teachers will be getting re-certified in First Aid and CPR as well as training on other curriculum related topics. This is a very important and educational day for the teachers. Please be sure to secure child care arrangements for the day.

Kindergarten Information Night

We will be holding an informational session on Thursday the 20th at 6:15 to discuss Kindergarten. We will share information about our Kindergarten program, as well as discuss the various options for next year. This is an open session so all are welcome, feel free to bring your friends. We will try to answer any and all questions you may have regarding Kindergarten.


Parking Lot - Please be courteous in the parking lot. We have had some aggressive driving/honking in the mornings.

Extra Clothes - Many children have no spare clothes. Please be sure to check if your child has spares. We do have a few shirts here but absolutely no pants.

Sign in - Parents MUST sign in as they enter the building before you drop your child off to their room.

Illness - There are many things going around this time of year. We continue to be diligent in our cleaning and hand washing, but please be sure to keep your kids home if they are sick to prevent the spread of germs.


Camp Registration is now open! We already have 25 camp registrations so be sure to get your in as soon as possible. Please be aware that if you are a currently enrolled family all you need to pay is the camp fee when turning in your registration form. There is a 4 week minimum to register for camp. If you need fewer weeks we will make those available later in the spring if they are available.
