Dear Parents,

A new school is always exciting! Each day we look forward to seeing the precious children and their beautiful smiles.

The teachers and staff members have worked very hard to get everything ready for your children to have a memorable experience this year. I appreciate the dedication to their profession.

We are asking that children in the following classes: Dragonflies, Busy Bees, Learning Detectives, and Super Stars be in their classrooms by 8:00 am. The teachers have activities to do with them and then they have breakfast.

Parents for the children in the following classes: Dynamite Discoverers. Great Explorers, Little Leopards and those who bring in Little Greyhounds, Buddy Bears, Kangaroos, and  Jigsaw Jungle bring their children to the gym at 8:50 am and wait for the teachers to greet and bring the children to their classrooms at the beginning of the session.The children are dismissed by their teachers at 2:50 pm from the gym each day at the end of the session.

Remember to hold your child’s hand in the parking lot. It is important for you to be aware that if someone other than the parent is on the emergency list and picks up a child that the staff is required to ask for identification. This is for your child’s safety.

The center closes at 5:30 each day. Please pick up your child by 5:25  if he/she is in the following classrooms --- Dragonflies, Busy Bees, Learning Detectives, and Super Stars.

NO SCHOOL on Monday, September 3rd due to Labor Day.

Our Open House is Thursday, September 6th from 6:00 to 7:00 pm.

Community organizations will be in the gym during the Open House to share their resources.

I If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to your child’s teachers, our Family Advocates, or me.

We would like to make this year the BEST for your child!


Mrs. Jackie Bacon

Early Childhood Coordinator
