Weekly Director Letter

Dear Parents,
     Even though it was a really short week, we have lots to report.  This week our students started planting in our school garden.  So far we have planted tomatoes and pumpkins. Next week we will continue with corn, beans, and carrots.  I can’t wait to see everything when it is grown.  We also had the canopy installed on the infant toddler playground.  Special thanks to Arielle’s grandparents for their help in getting it up.  We have also ordered two 12×12 shade sails to hang from the edge of the canopy to the fence to provide more shade on that playground.
     After the installation was done, I realized that there was significant damage to our rubber flooring on that playground from the storm.  I called the company who did our playground renovation and have arranged to have them come out and upgrade the rubber on the infant toddler playground.  The cost will be about $3,500 but I think that it will be money very well spent as we will have two completely renovated play areas.  They will do the work this weekend while we are closed!
      As you read last week, we are in the window of pursuing our National Accreditation for NAEYC (we accredit every 5 years) we are required to have families complete a survey.  Yesterday I sent out an email with the link to the surveys.  We ask that every family take a moment to complete it as we must have 75% returned to move forward in the accreditation process.  If you have 2 children in the school, please complete it twice so that we will get credit for both children.
      If you did not pick up a turkey cutout from the front desk, don’t forget to grab one and work with your family to decorate it.  Use any media you wish; colored rice, pasta, beans, feathers, recycled items, etc.  We will display them in the front window and then donated them to the local homeless shelter for Thanksgiving.
      Finally I am thrilled to report that Mia is doing great with her chemo treatments and the doctors feel she is responding really well.  We had an idea for an easy fundraiser for her from a parent from our school.  She suggest holding a raffle.  She is donating a holiday makeup Glam session and also one Microblading treatment.  If you own a business, manage a hotel, have a restaurant or other type of gift certificate you can donate let me know and we will pool all of the prizes and perhaps hold a raffle in Mia’s honor.
Have a great weekend,
davis
