We hope everyone has a safe and healthy Thanksgiving holiday. JCDS will try to bring some normalcy back to the children with our annual Christmas party scheduled for Wednesday, December 15th. There may be a visit from Santa Claus during the day. This will also be during our Holiday Spirit Week from December 13-17. Please visit our website at www.jeffersonvillecds.com for details on the daily themes.
During our Holiday Spirit Week, we will have a gift exchange between the children. Each child will exchange a gift designated as for a girl or boy. The gift should not exceed $15.00 and should be gift wrapped. The exchange will be during the Christmas party Wednesday, December 15th. More details will follow.
We will be closing at 5:30PM on Monday, December 13th for our monthly staff meeting. All parents should have received a memo on our 2022 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.
JCDS will be closing at 4:00pm on Christmas Eve, Friday, December 24th. We will then be closed for our winter break from Monday, December 27th to Friday, December 31st. We will be back open on Monday, January 3, 2022.
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.
