Well, thanks to our unexpected 4-day weekend, this was certainly a short week. I hope all of our Creative Kids had the chance to make some fabulous snowmen! Feel free to post those pictures on our FB page!
During small group with our pre-k kids, we identified who has the letter Jj in their name, stamped & wrote Jj in our journals, outlined the letter J with gem stones & came up with a list of words that begin with the letter J for our word wall. Ask your child what other letter has the same sound as the letter J.
We decorated our Valentine's Day boxes with various hearts. Now we can’t wait to fill them up!
We have some very exciting news to share with all of our Creative Kids families very soon!

Kindergarten & UPK registration paperwork can now be accessed on the Sachem Schools website. Please keep in mind that if your child doesn’t get chosen for the UPK lottery, we will match the SCOPE paid UPK program tuition rate if it is less than our 5-day tuition rate. Their rates have increased over the past few years & I am not sure yet of their rate for the 2017-2018 school year.
Additionally, your Creative Kids tuition rates remain the same for your registered child from year to year even if we increase our tuition. In other words, if your child first registers during the 2016-2017 school year, the rates in effect for that school year will remain in place even if we raise tuition during the 2017-2018 school year.
We will have a small Valentine's Day celebration in school on February 14. If you would like to send in treats/cards, please feel free to do so. We will celebrate during snack times in both the morning & afternoon sessions. Valentine cards/treats will also be distributed in Monday & Wednesday classes.
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 be closed 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.
Enjoy the snowy weekend!
