Our school year is off to a terrific start. First day jitters and tears have given way to smiles, and giggles, and excited questions about “what are we doing at school today?” We even had our first fire drill last week. Fire drills can be loud and confusing, but the children handled it very well. Check out the “Safety Zone” section this month to learn more about the safety drills we have during the year and how this keeps our school safe.
I am partial to list making, I must confess. This month, I have a simple September list for you.
- Come to Open House next Tuesday night. It’s our first BIG event for parents of the year. You will visit your child’s classroom and join us in Lee Fellowship Hall for a brief presentation about our upcoming school year by me. To sweeten the deal, we’ll have snacks! See more details here.
- Check out the Parent Page on our website. It’s the PLACE to find lots of helpful resources at your fingertips. Secret word: learn@2016.
- Consider a developmental screening for your child. By now, you should have received hard copies of screening information and forms in your child’s school bag. If you are not sure what the screening is about or if you child would benefit from a screening, I encourage you to reach out to me or your child’s teacher. Developmental screenings can be very helpful in determining how to best support individual children in the learning environment.
If you have anything you’d like to add to my list of to-dos, please email me or call me. I want you to enjoy Weekday School as much as your preschooler. You may also be interested to know that our staff starts each school morning together in prayer. If there is anything we can pray for you or your family for, we’d love to know that as well. See you Tuesday night!
