Dental Health Visit: Tuesday, February 11th. They will arrive at 9:30am and will give a presentation until approximately 10:00am. This is will take place at the Academy of Performing Arts in their classroom. As always, if your child does not attend school on this day, you are free to attend the presentation as long as a parent or guardian stays with your child.
Valentine’s Day: If your child would like to bring Valentines for their classmates for Valentine’s Day, please bring these on Tuesday, February 11th or Wednesday, February 12th. 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 11 students on each day. 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 the morning of Tuesday, February 11th or Wednesday, February 12th.
Scholastic Book Orders: Book orders are due February 15th 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. If you have not done so already join our Text club. Just text ACADEMY to 77948.
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.
