Welcome back! We hope everyone enjoyed a relaxing winter break & quality family time.
Dental health was our main focus during this final fabulous week of February (also known as Dental Health Month).
We painted with dental floss using white paint & also used red paint at the easel, then counted 20 marshmallows to make some smiles.
Our Tuesday afternoon class had a visit from Ms. Tracy & our Wednesday morning class was treated to a dynamic, interactive presentation by Ms. Tammy. Both ladies are dental hygienists at KiddSmiles in Holbrook. They spoke to us about what to expect during a visit to the dentist office so we won’t be nervous. They taught us a rhyme to remember, “Don’t rush when you brush” & read us books, Ready, Set, Brush! & Brush Your Teeth Please. We learned how to correctly brush our teeth, met Marvin the Monkey & Ms. Tammy’s puppy. We counted their 20 teeth, 10 on top & 10 on bottom & brushed puppy’s teeth as well as fed him some food. We also learned to sing, “Circle, Circle, Circle” when brushing teeth to remember the direction to brush.
During circle we made a chart with items that make teeth happy/sad. We also discussed what we did during winter break

Kindergarten & UPK registration paperwork can now be accessed on the Sachem Schools website.
Registration for CKC Summer Camp 2018 & the 2018-2019 school year is underway. Paperwork can be found on our website under the “Forms” tab located under “More.” Paperwork will be sent home upon request. We have a new payment policy for both camp & the 2018-2019 school year, which we will strictly adhere to. Class size will be limited to 12 per session for both camp & the school year so be sure to send in your paperwork as early as possible. We now have 3 registrants for the school year morning session. Once we reach 12 students in a class, a wait list will be provided. Your spot will be held with the nonrefundable $50 deposit. (A refund will be granted if your child wins a non-paid UPK lottery spot.)
Please note that if Sachem School District closes due to inclement weather, we will also be closed. If Sachem has a delayed opening, we will make every effort to open at our usual time. However, extenuating circumstances might require us to close for the morning session. Please tune in to WALK radio (FM 97.5) or check our FB page, the Remind App &/or Brightwheel App for closing & delay information.
Remember to brush, floss & keep on smiling!
