November 2018 Newsletter
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.
Daylight Savings Time ends on Sunday, November 4th. We will “fall back” one hour that day.
On Tuesday, November 20th, 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.
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.
