What a great first month of the year! We hope that you were able to participate in our Try It Free dance classes! If you didn’t get a chance and would like to try a dance class for free please see our front desk for more information. Registration for our dance classes will close soon.
Oak Creek Preschool Open House: Registration opens February 1st for our 2019-2020 School Year session. If you know anyone interested in touring our Oak Creek Academic Preschool, please have them come and join Miss Michelle & Miss Lisa on Saturday, March 2nd, from 10am-11am. Sign-ups are NOT required, but they are encouraged.
Dental Health Visit: Tuesday, February 12th. They will arrive at 9:30am and will give a presentation until approximately 10:30am. As always, if your child does not attend school on this day, you are free to attend the presentation as long as a parent stays with their child.
Upcoming Field Trip: Oak Creek Library (DATE CHANGE): We had to change our field trip date for the library to Wednesday, March 20th. We will meet right at the library at 9:25am and the tour will start at 9:30am. All students are welcome to attend no matter which day they attend school.
Chasing Tales Field Trip and Sign Up: Wednesday, April 10th. Arrival time is 9:15. This is an open play time at Chasing Tales in Oak Creek which allows the students time to play and have fun as the school year starts to come to an end. The fee is $6 per child, adults are free. Siblings are welcome to attend, but must also pay the entrance fee. Please sign up at the front desk no later than March 12th, 2019. Fees must be paid by cash or check only. For more details about the Chasing Tales please check out their website: http://www.chasingtalesforkids.com/
Valentine’s Day: If your child would like to bring Valentines for their classmates for Valentine’s Day, please bring these on Tuesday, February 12th or Wednesday, February 13th. If you choose to send Valentines, please do not write individual names on each one, only write who they are from. This helps our teachers when passing out the Valentines. This is NOT required. There are 12 students on Tuesday and 12 on Wednesday. An adult/parent is required to help their student pass out the Valentine’s Day cards/treats when they arrive at the beginning of the day.
Valentine’s Day Mailboxes: Students may decorate a mailbox (shoebox, oatmeal container, cardboard box, etc.) with stickers, crayons, markers, or whatever other art supplies you have on hand. Please be sure your child’s name is clearly written on the mailbox. Students can bring their mailboxes to school on Tuesday, February 5th or Wednesday, February 6th.
Scholastic Book Orders: Book orders are due February 21st this month. They have great book deals this month! Check them out and place your order at: https://orders.scholastic.com/ML8VQ
Weather Closing: APA Preschool will make our own decision if we cancel school or not for inclement weather. If we do not cancel school and the roads are bad, your child is not obligated to come; however, the State does require a phone call to let us know your child will not be attending school that day. We will email out our decision by 8am if we were to cancel.
Friendly Reminders: Winter is officially here! Please make sure to bring a change of shoes on the days that it is wet outside. The salt and melted snow can ruin our Preschool floors and carpets. Please make sure to arrive at school a few minutes before our start time of 9 am. This will allow you time to get your child’s belongings hung up. Lastly, please make sure to take them to the restroom before coming into the classroom for the day.
NEW Water Fountain: A HUGE Thank You to the APA Competitive Teams for donating this water bottle water fountain to our Oak Creek location with competition money they won last year!
“Spread the Love” APA Family and Staff Appreciation Week: We are so grateful to have you and your family as a part of the APA family. We will be celebrating our great parents/guardians, staff and students during the month of February! Parents and students will receive special treats and we invite you to help celebrate our staff members by writing on a paper heart that we’ll hang in our lobby. For full details, please CLICK HERE.
License Plate Winner: Congrats to license plate 322-FVP. One of our staff members spotted your Academy window sticker while driving! Please contact the front desk so we know who you are and you will receive a $50 tuition credit. To participate next month, grab a FREE window sticker at the desk!
