A Note From Our Principal,
We hope your children enjoyed their fall lessons, pumpkin themed activities and classroom celebrations last month. Seeing our students enjoy their Halloween costumes and fall attire is one of the highlights of the year for us. Thank you for allowing us to be part of these special occasions!
This month we are focusing on gratitude and connecting with our community. As part of this focus we are busily preparing for our Holiday Giving campaign. This year we will be support Lowcountry Orphan Relief. Lowcountry Orphan Relief, Inc. (LOR) is a non-profit organization that provides goods and services to children who have been abused or neglected. They work directly with other non-profits, schools, foster parents, and government agencies to identify the individual needs of these and other children in severe situations. They intervene at critical junctures in the lives of these children, with products and services that provide a strong, positive impact. Since 2006, They have clothed over 28,000 children in the Tri-County area.
Illness Policy Reminder
Our parents are vital partners in helping us to maintain a safe and healthy environment for the students in our school. The most important thing you can do to assist us in creating a healthy environment is to keep your child home if they are ill. This reduces the spread of illness and allows your child to fully recuperate. Children may not attend school until they have been symptom free for 24 hours if they display any of the following:
· Fever of 100 degrees of more—must be fever free for 24 hours with no fever-reducing medicine before returning to school
· Vomiting, diarrhea or upset stomach
· Heavy nasal discharge requiring wiping every 3-5 minutes
· Persistent, non-productive or barking cough
· Sore throat
· Skin rash, including diaper rash
· Head lice
· Symptoms of a communicable disease
· Fussy, cranky behavior unlike child’s normal demeanor that may indicate illness
For more information please see our Parent Handbook or reach out to a member of our administrative team.
Pajama Jam for PJ’s!
Please allow your child to come to school in pajamas on November 21st to help us kick off our Holiday Giving initiative to collect pajamas for children in need this holiday season. Students will be learning about serving our community, jamming to and making music, reading stories about giving and reflecting on what it means to help others. Stay tuned for more information!
Each of our classrooms will be celebrating Thanksgiving with a special lunch on November 21st at 11:30am. Students are making their own place mats, hats and table decor for this fun event.
