Our Mother Goose Time theme for February is “Nursery Rhymes”. Each week will have the children learning rhymes with different traits such as food rhymes, character rhymes, and number rhymes. Your teacher’s newsletters will have more specifics on the activities for the month. The children will also be reading stories by Dr. Seuss (leading up to his birthday on March 2nd) and discussing the February holidays of Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, and President’s Day.
On Wednesday, February 9th at 9:00 am, CLS Photo Group will be at the school to take individual and class pictures. Please mark your calendars so your child(ren) will look their best. For those children not attending school on Wednesday, but want to have their picture taken, please see Larry Brown.
Speaking of pictures, JCDS will once again have a Baby Picture Contest for each class. We are asking parents to send in a baby picture, which will be displayed in your child’s respective classroom. The contest will be to see how many baby pictures parents can guess correctly. The winning parent in each class will receive a $25 Wawa gift card. Please bring in your baby pictures by Friday, February 11th.
On Monday, February 14th, we will have a friendship party for celebrating Valentine’s Day. The children can exchange Valentines with their classmates. A list of students for your child’s classroom is attached. Further details will be forthcoming.
With the colder weather upon us, you may feel the need to keep your car running when you are dropping off or picking up your child(ren). We are requesting that all cars be turned off during these times of the day. It is not safe having a car running unsupervised.
Individual Child Reports will be issued in mid-February. All Individual Child Reports must have the cover sheet signed and returned to school by Friday, February 25th. During this week, any parent who would like the opportunity to discuss their child’s Individual Child Report may set up a convenient time with their child’s teacher.
Beginning in February, we will be requesting acknowledgment for those parents interested in continuing their child(ren) in the Summer Jamboree Program, along with registrations for the Fall 2022 School Year. If you wish your child(ren) to attend JCDS for the Fall 2022 School Year, a $50.00 registration fee ($80.00 for two or more children) will secure their spot(s). A confirmation form is attached for your convenience. Please check off the appropriate boxes and return the form and registration fee to Larry Brown by Friday, February 18th. Remember that we offer a free week of tuition for referrals enrolling to our program.
The school will be closed on President’s Day, Monday, February 21st for a JCDS staff-training day. We will be getting recertified in Infant/Child CPR and First Aid.
