A Note from Ms. Debi & Ms. Nancy
Fall has arrived and we hope the weather will start getting a little cooler for us. This is the time that we try and enjoy the beautiful weather and sometimes eat outside. We ask that you keep the heat ups to a minimum. It would make taking the lunches outside much easier for us. Remember to change your child’s extra clothing to fall clothes instead of summer ones since it will be nippy in the mornings and afternoons. Observations for the Toddler and Primary classes start in October. We hope you will enjoy seeing your child in action. Please understand the importance of taking notes on the observation form that will be given to you and discuss with the teacher at a later time any concerns or questions regarding your child. Her attention will be completely on the children during the class time. Observations for the Elementary classes are at any time throughout the year. We ask that you give us notice so we do not have more than two parents at a time observing.
