Pre-K Monthly T

The theme for this month is “Zoo,” so get ready to see lots of elephants, tigers, and zebras galloping around. Concepts for October will be the letters G, H and I; the number 4; the shape is triangle; and the color is orange. We will also be learning about Fire Safety and Fire Prevention.

Our Bible theme this month is Daniel in the Den of Lions. We will learn to never stop praying or loving God.

Virtual Learning Lab”/After School News

Starting October 5th, all Learning Lab students will attend Camp Lowcountry Day (285 Red Cedar Street) on their independent days, their virtual day and After School on their “face to face” days. All students must be in their morning class 10 minutes before log-in time. Please make sure all tablets come in fully charged in the mornings and that all items are labeled. Headphones must be used! If your child is having behavior concerns or did not come with supplies needed (tablet/headphones, etc.), they will be sent home.

After School Parents, please notify the office on days your child will NOT be riding the bus. If your child has been sent home sick from Elementary School, they cannot attend After School that day.

Director’s Notes

Its re-registration time! If your child was registered after March 1, 2020, you will not have to pay a registration fee at this time. If you attended Summer Camp, After School registration is paid for the 2020-2021 school year. Please return updated paperwork prior to October 23rd. Please see the office for more information.

Happy Fall Y’all! Pretty soon our Pelican classes will be participating in our Pumpkin Patch Field Trip. We are looking forward to this year’s “Fall Festival!” Although it may look a little different, the children will have lots of fun activities in their classrooms. This year’s theme will be “Heroes” and will be held on Friday, October 30th. Think Batman, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man, teachers, police, doctors, nurses and firefighters. We will provide a special snack!  Your child may also wear regular clothing on this day.

Parent Reminders

*Face masks are still required for all adults upon entry. Thank you for your cooperation.

*Silly Goose Photography will be coming for our annual school pictures! More details soon to come.

*It is vital that you use your fingerprint to check your child in/out. If you are unable to sign in/out through our computer touch screen, please see the office for a bypass code.

*Please make sure your child has extra changes of clothes in their cubbies (especially for cooler weather)! Also, please remember to label everything!

*NO TOYS FROM HOME: Children are NOT allowed to bring outside toys (not even show-n-tell on Fridays). To eliminate further contamination risk, we ask that you follow this policy. All of the non-essential daily items will be returned with the parent at drop-off.  Helps us stay healthy and open by doing your part.

*Please do not bring your children in eating/drinking in the classroom or hallway.

*A child may not be in underwear until they are 30 days accident free, documented by the preschool. Potty charts are noted daily. All children non potty trained will be in a pull-up until accident free for 30 days. Rate changes will be applied once the child has been documented accident free.
