Dear Parents,
     What a spooktacular week we had at Kids For Kids Academy.  Thank you to everyone who sent in treats for our students and for the homeless students.  We filled 218 bags so that the kids at Chapman Partnership Shelter had sweet treats for Halloween.  We also had a huge amount of parent volunteers.  You were a huge part of our success.  For those of you who popped in, you saw our students making candy bags for the homeless, playing Halloween games, listening to Halloween stories, and doing Halloween themed art and cooking activities.  I think my favorite was the costume parades.
     Thanks a million to the families who donated to Mia Rios to help her during her cancer treatments.  Her family is very thankful to have received $3,100 from our school families and staff.  Our collection will be ongoing for those who still wish to participate.  We will also be holding a garage sale to raise money for the family.  It will take place on Saturday, December 2nd so start cleaning out your closets and toy boxes now.  We will take donations starting December 1st and also ask families to drop off larger items early morning on December 2nd.
     As we move into November, we get ready for Thanksgiving.  Next week we will have cut out cardboard turkey forms for families to take home.  This is a family project so please use your imagination and decorate it using any media that you wish.  When you are done, return to the school and we will use them to decorate our front window.  Also we will be collecting Publix gift cards in any denomination starting at $5.  We do this every year to make baskets for families in our school who could use some support during Thanksgiving.  We used to do canned food donations but really feel that families should be able to choose the groceries they want for their Thanksgiving celebrations.  Families who share their hearts with someone else will get a paper heart to put on our turkey in the front window.
     Finally, as 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.  You will get the link to this survey at the middle of next week.  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.  Please remember that we are closed next Friday, November 10th for Veterans Day.
Have a great weekend,
Beth Rosenthal Davis, Ed.S, NBCT
