February 2017 Newsletter
February’s theme for Ms. Yacono and Miss Hoy’s classes will be “Hearts of Colors”, while the toddler and pre-toddler children will have a theme entitled “Hugs and Kisses (Valentine’s Day)”. The children will also be reading stories by Dr. Seuss (leading up to his birthday on March 2nd), discussing topics that include National Children’s Dental Health Month, and the February holidays of Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, and President’s Day.
On Tuesday, February 14th, JCDS will have a Donuts For Dads from 9:00am – 10:00am in the morning. We are encouraging our Dads to spend some time with their child in their classroom and enjoy some donuts with them. Please see your child’s teacher if you would like to come at a different time in the morning.
With the colder weather upon us, you may feel the need to keep your car running when you are dropping off or picking up your child(ren). We are requesting that all cars be turned off during these times of the day. It is not safe having a car running unsupervised.
Individual Child Reports will be issued in mid-February. All Individual Child Reports must have the cover sheet signed and returned to school by Monday, February 27th. During this week, any parent who would like the opportunity to discuss their child’s Individual Child Report may set up a convenient time with their child’s teacher.
Beginning in February, we will be requesting acknowledgment for those parents interested in continuing their child(ren) in the Summer Jamboree Program, along with registrations for the Fall 2017 School Year. If you wish your child(ren) to attend JCDS for the Fall 2017 School Year, a $50.00 registration fee ($80.00 for two or more children) will secure their spot(s). All current students and infants will have the first opportunity for registering up until February 13th, after which time we cannot guarantee a spot without the registration fee. A confirmation form is attached for your convenience. Please check off the appropriate boxes, and return the form and registration fee to Larry Brown by Monday, February 13th.
The school will be closed on President’s Day, Monday, February 20th for a JCDS staff-training day. We will be attending a workshop on the New Health and Safety Training Requirements for Child Care as Required by the Federal Government.
