December 2019 Newsletter
Our Mother Goose Time curriculum has the children learning about Winter in the Woods and Woodlands. Many other special events are planned around the many holidays that December has.
We have scheduled our Christmas party for Wednesday, December 11th. There may be a visit from Santa Claus during the day. This will also be during our Spirit Week of December 9-13. Please visit our website at www.jeffersonvillecds.com for details on the daily themes.
We will be closing at 5:30PM on Monday, December 16th for our monthly staff meeting. All parents should have received a memo on our 20 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/picking up 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 23rd to Friday, December 27th. We will be back open on Monday, December 30th. On Tuesday, December 31st, we will have a 4:00pm closing time. We will be closed Wednesday, January 1, 2020 for New Year’s Day.
