A Note from Our Principal
We hope that your Thanksgiving holiday is filled with fun, kindness and memories to last a lifetime. Our classrooms celebrated with fantastic feasts, stories, games and laughter. As the winter holidays approach we have many special events planned for our students and families and look forward to spending time with you. We’ve also enclosed important winter and holiday procedure reminders in this newsletter. Please read through it carefully and reach out if you have any questions or concerns. Happy Holidays!
Inclement Weather Reminders
We do not always follow the closure schedule of the local public schools because we don’t have to contend with the same transportation issues as public schools. Our goal is to be open as many days as possible to support our working parents. If we must close because our teachers cannot safely get to work, you will receive a notification via Tadpoles Links 2 Home as soon as the closure is announced. We also post notifications on our website and Facebook page and we will contact 6 ABC News.
Winter Clothing Reminder
If you’ve not already done so, please check your child’s cubby to ensure they have an extra set of weather appropriate clothes. Students also need to come to school each day with a jacket and dressed warm enough to play outside for part of the day. If the weather is brisk we still go outside for active games and want everyone to be able to participate!
Our school is closed on December 24 through January 1, 2020 for Winter Break. We will re-open on January 2.
Classroom Holiday Celebrations
Through the month of December our classes will be learning about different winter holidays and customs. On Friday, December 20th at 3:30 p.m. our students will showcase their learning and the holiday décor they’ve created with a holiday celebration. Parents are welcome to attend and we will share extra photos on Links 2 Home for those who cannot come. Some classes are collecting small extras for their celebratory snack, please check with your child’s teacher for more information.
Holiday Giving Project
In the spirit of giving, we are hosting a food drive to benefit RISK, the food pantry of Hightstown. Kindly deliver any non-perishable food items to the office by December 6th. We appreciate your generosity.
