This month we will be studying Fairy Tales, Fall, and Fire Safety! Our letters this month are D-E-F; Numbers 4 & 5; the shape is triangle; and the color is orange. We will be celebrating Fire Prevention with a visit from the Fire Department on October 22nd.

Our Biblical theme is Noah’s Ark, we will learn about how Noah obeyed God and built the ark according to His’s instructions.

What We’re Studying

Our Creative Curriculum Study will be “Beginning the Year”. We will learn how to make and keep friends, or class rules, our friend’s names and a whole lot more. We are excited to start a new school year!

After School News

Parents, please notify the office on days your child will NOT be riding the bus.

Remember to label all backpacks with your child’s first and last name. We will always call you if your child does not get off their assigned bus. Parents must notify our office when your child has been sent home sick from the elementary school. If your child has been sent home sick or is in quarantine from Elementary School, they cannot attend After School that day/quarantine period.

Director’s Notes              

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 as well as a costume parade. This year’s theme will be “Disney” and will be held on Friday, October 29th. Dress up as Mickey, Minnie, Moana, Baby Yoda, Buzz Lightyear, and more! There will not be a sign-up sheet for treats but if you would like to bring store-bought goodies (ex: cupcakes, cookies, fruit, cheese) for your child’s class, please see the office.  Your child may also wear regular clothing on this day.

Our Trunk-or-Treat will be in the Camp Lowcountry Day parking lot on Friday, October 29th at 6:30PM. Please see the office if you would like to participate. There will be prizes for the best trunks!

Director’s Notes

Fall is in the air! We plan to do a Trunk-or-Treat in the Camp Lowcountry Day parking lot on Friday, October 29th. More details soon to come. 😊

Our 2021-2022 Parent Handbooks will be available by mid-September and ready for pick up at the front office. Additionally, your annual re-registration fee of $55.00 is due September 20th. If your child was registered after March 1, 2021, you will not have to pay a registration fee at this time. If you attended Summer Camp, after school registration is paid for the 2021-2022 school year, it will expire at summer registration for 2022 Summer Camp. Please note our rates will be increasing. *New weekly charges start September 30th, 2021. Monthly plans start October 1st, 2021.

       Our COVID drop-off protocol is as follows:

    • We will continue to run the children to and from their classrooms (no parents past the front foyers).
    • If anyone in your family or household is under quarantine, your child is not able to attend school.

 

Parent Reminders

*Drop-off cutoff is 10:00AM, unless prior arrangements have been made with the office. If your child has a Doctor’s appointment, please bring in a note of excuse.

*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. Also, please remember to use your security cards to enter the buildings. Please make sure to always have yours on hand. If lost or if you would like to add on family members, they are $10 per card.

*We live in the Glorious Lowcountry, but the biting insects like it as much as we do. Remember to apply your bug spray and sunscreen at home in the morning before leaving for school.

*No nuts/peanut butter food or treats allowed. We are a nut free campus.

*NO TOYS FROM HOME: Children are NOT allowed to bring outside toys (not even show-n-tell on Fridays). All non-essential daily items will be returned with the parent at drop-off. 

*Check daily reports for any needs such as diapers, wipes, pull-ups, etc.
