A Note From Our Principal,
We hope that you all had a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving with loved ones. As the winter holidays approach, we have many special activities planned for our students and look forward to spending the season with them. We’ve also enclosed several important winter and holiday reminders in this newsletter. Please read through it carefully and reach out if you have any questions or concerns. Happy holidays!
School Closure Reminders
As a reminder, we do not always follow the closure schedule of the local public schools. Our goal is to be open as many days as possible to support our working parents. If we must close for any reason, you will receive a notification via Links 2 Home as soon as the closure is announced. We also post notifications on our website, WFMZ and Channel 69 News.
Winter Clothing Reminder
If you’ve not already done so, please ensure your child has an extra set of weather appropriate clothes. Students also need to come to school each day with a jacket and dressed warmly enough to play outside for part of the day. We want everyone to be able to participate!
Our school is closed on December 25th for Christmas Day and January 1st for New Year’s Day. We will be closing at 3pm on December 24th.
Winter Break Camp
We will be holding Winter Break Camp for our school-age students from. Students will participate in community service activities, STEAM learning opportunities, holiday themed projects and virtual activities. Students may attend all or part of Winter Break Camp, please let us know by December 14 if your child will be attending.
Classroom Celebrations—Wednesday, December 16th
Through the month of December, our classes will be learning about different winter holidays and customs. On Wednesday, December 16th, our students will showcase their learning and the holiday décor they’ve created with a classroom celebration. Students will be celebrating with story time, crafts and a special presentation shared via Zoom. We will miss having parents attend this year’s holiday celebrations and know that you all will enjoy the holiday crafts that your student brings home!
Holiday Giving Project
This year we are working to support our local hospital network through monetary donations to help them acquire the PPE supplies needed to care for our community. We will also create thank you cards and pictures to brighten up a patient’s day. We will be accepting donations from now until December 11th.
Love Our School? Review Us!
In today’s connected world, many families turn to online reviews to learn more about the reputation of schools. Just a reminder that you can find our school on Facebook, Google, Yelp and other online directories. We’d love more families like yours, so please consider spreading the word about our school.
