February News

A Note From Our Principal

The year is off to a great start and we’re enjoying spending the winter season with you and your children. If you’ve not already done so, please send in an extra set of weather appropriate clothes for your child. We want everyone to be able to participate in the fun outdoor activities we have planned. As always, it is an honor to work with and watch your children grow.  Thank you for choosing our preschool for your family.

Class Valentine’s Day Celebrations

We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day on Monday, February 14th. Children are invited to bring in valentines to share with their classmates. We will have a special Valentine’s Day snack and participate in Valentine-themed activities throughout the day.

Winter Weather

The winter season is certainly upon us! The children will continue to go outside throughout the winter season. Please be sure to dress your child accordingly – hat and mittens are needed most days!

Snow is not a deterrent for going outside. When Snow is Here – Bring the gear! (snow pants or suits, and boots, hats and mittens – labeled with your child’s name).

Also, please be sure that your child has extra clothes available for the winter weather long sleeves and long pants (this is a great time to check sizes, too).

Links 2 Home

If you’re not currently receiving photos and daily reports for your child, you can easily change this by downloading the Links 2 Home app on your phone. Just type ‘Links 2 Home’ in the search bar for the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. After downloading Links 2 Home you can register with the same email address that you used to enroll your child in our school.

We are loving the instant message tool and hope you are finding it helpful as well.

Online Parent Communication

In addition to our newsletter the ‘For Parents’ section of our website also includes links to our menu, monthly calendar and school year calendar. We update these items frequently to ensure you’re always in the know. Though we send information through Links 2 Home, our calendar can be printed or even downloaded directly to your device. Our menu and school year calendar can be printed or saved for easy reference as well.
