June 2016

Dear Parents,

As we come to the end of the school year, we would like to thank you for your patronage and support you have given throughout the past year. Ms. Yacono's and Miss Hoy's classes will have a monthly theme of Fun In The Sun, while the toddlers and pretoddlers have a theme of Welcome Summer.

On Wednesday, June 15th, we will be having an end of the year picnic for all classes. Sign-up sheets for picnic foods will be posted in each classroom. As always, if you can manage a break in your schedule, all parents and grandparents are more than welcome to join in the fun! Check your child's sign-up sheet for the time of their lunch/picnic.

We will be closing at 5:30PM on Monday, June 20th for our monthly staff meeting. Our next school holiday closing will be Monday, July 4th for the observance of Independence Day.

Our Jamboree Summer Program will begin on Monday, June 20th. We have many special events coming to the school this summer. More information will be coming out in the next week or two. The children will be spending a considerable amount of time outside, thus a few reminders. Children should have sun screen that parents have already used on their child to test for allergies. We will be having sprinkler fun, so please provide your child with a bathing suit and towel (name on both items) at the beginning of each week, and we will return both items at the end of the week. Lunch will be eaten outside as much possible in Ms. Yacono's and Miss Hoy's classes, thus we are requesting the omission of lunch items requiring the microwave to serve. Sneakers must be worn on a daily basis. Please no sandals or flip-flops, as these choices in footwear are not the safest for running and playing outside, and can inhibit your child's ability to enjoy outdoor play.

Our summer events kick off with one of our favorite performers, A Visit with Mother Goose on Wednesday, June 22nd at 10:00am. On Thursday, June 30th at 10:00am, The Magic of Ari Paul will be at JCDS for the first time. Parents are welcome to join the audience on days we have performers. More details on our summer events will be forthcoming.

If you have not notified us of your summer vacation plans at this point, please let us know the dates so we can plan accordingly. A Vacation Notification Form is attached for your convenience.

For all of you who are not joining us after June 17th, we wish you and your family a safe and fun summer. Happy Father's Day (June 19th) to all our Dads!!!
