Dear Pee Wee Parents,
A big thank you for all who participated in our fundraisers last month. The profits we made helped to fund our Fall Conference with PACE (Professional Association of Childhood Educators) in Oakland. This conference taught us the latest and greatest techniques in early childhood education and it supports us as professionals in this field. We were able to get some pictures of our staff during the conference which are on the class websites. We all had a great time in the workshops and came back with fun new ways to approach the work we do. We really appreciate your support to our school!
I expect the cookie dough to be arriving before the Thanksgiving holiday. As soon as it is shipped I will have a delivery date and I will let you know. We will need the cookie dough picked up the day of delivery as we do not have enough storage for it on site. It comes frozen and is good for a few hours so you should have enough time to pick it up and get it delivered to everyone.
Pee Wee will be closed November 22nd and 23rd for Thanksgiving and the day after Thanksgiving. These are paid holidays as noted in your contract. We will also be closed Christmas Day and the week following through New Years Day. We will open back up on Wednesday January 2nd, 2013. The only paid holidays during this week are Christmas Day and New Years Day.
Thank you for the parents and families that were here to help during our Halloween carnival and for all the donations. The children had a lot of fun and I think the adults who helped did too. Again, please see your child’s class webpage for pictures of our fun Halloween event!
We have a few openings left in our Pre-K classes. Please share our website Peeweepreschool.com with any friends you have in need of preschool. We are offering a $50 tuition credit to anyone who recommends a new family to our program. After the new family is enrolled in our program for a month we will credit your account $50. This is a way we can say thank you for your advertising.
Please remember to check your child’s class website for updates and for the weekly pictures. We update the pictures through out the week and it is a great way to keep up on what your child is doing in their class. Please share this site with your child as well, which should initiate some great conversations about what they are doing and who their friends are. The picture pages are password protected. Please let me know if you need the password. You can access the pictures by going to Peeweepreschool.com and clicking on parent connection at the top of the page.
As daylight savings comes to an end please be aware that this can have an effect on your child. Children have an internal time clock and when it does not match real time they may become a little anxious. It wont last long as they will soon settle in to the new schedule. A little extra TLC can go a long way during this transition week.
If you have any questions please feel free to call me or stop by the office. I am here for you.
