News for Parents

September Newsletter

“Keep God’s word in your heart” – Deuteronomy 11:18

Pre-K Monthly Theme

This month we will be learning about The Five Senses: Sight, Smell, Touch, Hearing and Taste! Our letters this month are; A-B-C, Numbers; 1-2-3. Our Shape is circle, and our color is yellow. Lookout for fun fall arts & crafts coming home.

Our Bible theme will talk about keeping God’s word in our hearts. God wants to live inside our hearts- He wants to be a part of our life, love us, and help us make good choices.

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!

Question: Who works at our school?

 

After School News

Buses are now on schedule and the After School Program is running smoothly.

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

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

*Starting October 1, 2021, 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.
