November 2017 Newsletter
November’s theme for Miss Hoy’s and Ms. Yacono’s classes will focus on “Our Community” which will discuss family, community helpers, the farm and how crops are harvested, the Thanksgiving holiday and things that we would be thankful for. Our toddlers and pre-toddlers will have “Be Thankful” for their theme.
Daylight Savings Time ends on Sunday, November 5th. We will “fall back” one hour that day.
On Tuesday, November 21st, we will be having our annual holiday lunch for all those children attending school during lunch hours that day. This year’s lunch will have a theme of A Kid’s Friendly Thanksgiving. More details will follow.
For school closing information, we will be using NBC10 School Closing Alert System and Channel 6’s Action News School Closing Alert System. These systems will display the school’s name and provide school closing, early closing, late opening, etc. for our school. We will continue to have a message on our answering machine for those parents comfortable with this method. You can also check our website at www.jeffersonvillecds.com for school closing information. Look under Upcoming Events & News on our homepage.
For the eighth year, we will have a group of Early Childhood students from the Central Montco Technical High School doing child observation at JCDS. If you see some new faces wearing purple smocks on Wednesday mornings, you will know who they are.
As the weather becomes cooler, please have your child(ren) dressed appropriately for outdoor play. The children will be outside on a daily basis, even if it is only for 15-20 minutes (weather permitting, of course). Also, please be sure that your child(ren) has a seasonal change of extra clothing, labeled with their name, at the school. Thank you for your cooperation.
