December 2018 Newsletter

December 2018


Dear Parent(s),

Our classes will continue to have different themes for each week instead of a monthly theme. Ms. Yacono, Miss Hoy, our toddler class and pretoddler class will have a monthly newsletter that will provide more details on what is planned for the children. The whiteboards in Miss Hoy’s and Ms. Yacono’s classrooms will also summarize the weekly lesson plans.

We have scheduled our Christmas party for Wednesday, December 19th. There may be a visit from Santa Claus during the day. Our Spirit Week forDecember is the 10th-14th. Please visit our website at www.jeffersonvillecds.com for details on the daily themes.

We will be closing at 5:30PM on Monday, December 17th for our monthly staff meeting. All parents should have received a memo on our 2019 staff meeting dates. If you need a copy, please see Larry Brown.

For parents looking for activities to do with their child(ren), here is a website worth looking into. Pennsylvania’s Promise for Children is a campaign to raise awareness about the importance of providing the state’s young children with access to quality learning opportunities. I would suggest subscribing to the newsletter “Learning is Everywhere”, which is a monthly e-newsletter based on the Learning Is Everywhere calendar that has activities, books, and songs for children from birth to age five. The website is www.papromiseforchildren.com. 

As the winter season and colder weather approaches, we will go outside daily (weather permitting), so children will need to be dressed warmly for outdoor play. Children should have hats, gloves, or mittens to keep themselves warm. Please label all clothing with your child’s name.

During the cold winter months, you may feel the need to have your car running unattended while dropping off your child (ren). For the safety of all the children, please turn off your engine while parked in the parking lot. 

With the colder weather, cold and flu season begins. Please remember to have your child(ren) wash their hands when they arrive at school. Your assistance in doing this is greatly appreciated.

JCDS will be closed for our winter break from Monday, December 24th to Friday, December 28th. We will be back open on Monday, December 31st, with a 4:00pm closing time. We will be closed Tuesday, January 1, 2019 for New Year’s Day.
