Our pre-k children focused on the letters/sounds Ii & Jj this week.
We celebrated 2 special birthdays this week! Happy 4th Birthday to Emma! Emma’s mom was our mystery reader on Wednesday. She read us the book Peppa Pig’s Halloween Party. We ate delicious mini cupcakes to celebrate. Thank you to Emma’s mom for joining us!
Happy 2nd birthday to our youngest learner, Colten! Thank you to his family for sending in delicious cupcakes for us to celebrate!
A great big thank you to Colin’s family for donating a bag full of superhero figures for us to use in the classroom. The children have been playing with them with the Legos & are having a blast!

- Halloween Party Info: Wenesday, 10/31/18. All families are invited to attend. We will have a regular school day. Morning session party from 10:30-11:30. Afternoon session party from 2:00-3:00.

If your child does not attend school on Wednesday, please feel free to bring him/her to the party at 10:30 or 2:00, depending on your child's usual session. Costumes are welcome! If you would like to send in treat bags for the children, please make sure it is peanut/tree nut free.
- Please join us in giving back to the community this Thanksgiving! Let’s see how many families we can feed together! Creative Kids Center has teamed up with Our Place Newspapers to sponsor a food drive. Food pantries are usually at a low this time of year & really need our help. The food drive will run from October 5-November 16. Please place non-perishable food items in the box located at our door at your convenience. Food donations will be delivered to local food pantries. Thank you for your support in making a difference in the lives of our neighbors.
- School picture day is Wednesday, 11/7/18. Additional information will be sent home as soon as it is received from the photographer. We have a new photographer this year who has some great ideas. I’m excited to see what she has in store for us!
- November tuition is due on Wednesday, 11/1/18. Late fees will apply according to our handbook policy for tuition not received by 11/10/18. Please pay your tuition in a timely manner. Thank you for your understanding.
- For some reason our October Scholastic order was returned to the Scholastic warehouse. I was assured it was re-shipped on 10/26 via expedited delivery & should arrive by Tuesday, 10/30/18. Fingers crossed!
Have a fabulous weekend!
