Friday Updates- October 19, 2018

Happy Friday, TCDS Families!

Boy, there sure is a chill in the air today!! I am glad it finally feels like fall, but am just not prepared for it to be this cold!! I will make sure to wash my heavy coat this weekend, unpack my scarves, and maybe even get the gloves out. Please be sure to do the same for your kiddos, as our classes will be going outside even in this chilly air. Also, remember to change your child’s extra clothes in their cubby to something that is seasonally appropriate.

This coming week, our 4’s classes will be attending a field trip to Beachmont on Wednesday, October 24. If you have not already done so, please be sure to have your child’s permission slip and payment to your teacher by Monday so we can have an accurate count. Please remember that there is NO Enrichment following this field trip; however, Extended Day is open to all Enrichment students (at no additional cost) should you need care in the afternoon. Please let me know in advance that your child will be coming back so our Extended Day teacher can be prepared.

We will have our STEM Art Day this coming Tuesday, October 23 from 12-3. All potty-trained students are invited to attend, even if they do not come to school on Tuesday morning! Please see the sign up form that was sent home earlier this week, or you can find extra forms on the table outside of the office. The cost of the afternoon is $24 (normal Extended Day rates) and the schedule will be as follows:

12:00-12:45: Lunch

12:50-1:20: Outdoor Play

1:25-2:00: Rest Time

2:00-3:00: STEM Art Day

We hope your child can attend this fun afternoon full of cool experiments and art projects!

While our teachers strive to be in attendance each and every day, there are times when they need to be out. Therefore, we are always on the look-out for enthusiastic and energetic substitutes to be on call should a teacher need to be absent. Our teachers leave detailed plans for our substitutes to follow and assistants are always available to help. Please inquire in the office about what is required to become a substitute (it’s just a few forms). We would love to have you!

I hope you all have a great weekend! See you next week!

Take Care,

Chrissy
