Don’t forget “Lunch Bunch”! The cost is $15.00 . Sign up in the office. Please put a cold pack in your child’s lunch box and label the box with your child’s name so we can read it at a glance. All children who stay for lunch should have a back pack for art work and notices plus personal belongings. All lunches and snacks at Sunshine are peanut free!
Please dress your child appropriately for outside weather. Mittens are preferred over gloves so children may dress themselves. We want children to develop good self-help skills with jackets, hats and mittens.
School pictures will be taken on Tuesday, November 8th and Wednesday, November 9th. Northeast School Pictures usually do an excellent job capturing your child’s wonderful smile. Michael Lozier has been coming to the school for many, many years. It is a prepaid package with a group photo and if you are not satisfied, your money will be returned. You are under no obligation to purchase the pictures. Children wearing bright colors usually photograph well.
A “Sunshine Tradition” has been to make Thanksgiving food baskets for needy families and the Woman’s Shelter through the Arlington Youth Consultation Center at the Whittemore Robbins House. Patsy Kraemer, special activities chairperson finds families who really need our Thanksgiving baskets. The baskets contain an entire Thanksgiving dinner from turkey, vegetables, bread, stuffing and dessert. A notice will be sent out from individual classrooms for this endeavor and AYCC, on Tuesday before Thanksgiving will come to the school and pick up the baskets. Last year the baskets were magnificent and so appreciated by the needy.
EARLY DROP OFF:
WE will continue “Early Drop-off” for the future. It is a service that several families need. We do not meet our expenses but will absorb the cost in other line items.
APPLICATIONS FOR FOUR YEAR OLDS:
Applications will be given out on December 1st to parents of our current three year old children for our four year old spaces for the school year 2018 – 2019.
Pre-K applications will be given out at conference time. (Early- February)
WHY A COOPERATIVE SCHOOL?
Research holds true that positive and supportive parent involvement in education equals success in education and in life. Teachers partnering with parents, create the kind of play-filled environments most conducive to life-long love of learning. We hope that your parent help days are filled with insight and learning of the cooperative philosophy. We’re happy you have chosen Sunshine Nursery School!
MAY YOU ALL HAVE A WONDERFUL THANKSGIVING WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS
