April 2017 Newsletter
As we move into spring after a mild winter, what better time to talk about all the things that make us like this time of the season. Ms. Yacono and Miss Hoy’s classes will explore the monthly theme of “See Me Grow” while the toddlers and pre-toddlers have a theme of “Hop Into Spring”. Earth Day (Saturday, April 22nd) will also be discussed.
For those families that were here for school pictures, payment is due no later than Monday, April 3rd. Pictures not being purchased must be returned by April 3rd as well. I must account for all photographs. As a reminder, please pay via a check, made payable to CLS Photogroup. We do not want to send cash through the mail.
Attached is our JCDS Parent/Guardian Survey. Your feedback is valuable to us in evaluating our program and seeing areas we may need to improve. Please take a few moments to complete the survey. Surveys can be returned to our toddler room or our employee lounge, where bags are located marked “JCDS Survey”.
The Week of the Young Child is April 23rd – 29th. This annual celebration focuses public attention on the needs of young children and their families, and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs. It is also to raise awareness in making the critical early years the best they can be for all children. Any parent or relative that would like to read to their child’s class this week would be welcomed.
Speaking of reading, JCDS will once again participate in Pennsylvania’s One Book, Every Young Child program. This year’s book is Daniel Finds A Poem by Micha Archer. We will be sharing this book with all the children throughout the Week of the Young Child.
