Weekly Director Letter

Dear Parents,
     We were sad that we had to cancel our playground shade installation.  Not only did everything not arrive, but Saturday is to be a real rainy day.  Thank you to everyone who signed up and for your willingness to help.
Attention parents of VPK and Silver Door students: We started passing out field trip forms on Friday from the front desk.   If you do not receive it, please be sure to ask the front desk for it one day next week.  Our first field trip is scheduled for October 20th.  The form and letter will give you all of the other dates and some important guidelines.
     FACEBOOK…are you our friend?  I am doing my best to post photos almost everyday.  I also mention the class that is in the post so check it out and share the photos with your friends and family.  If you are not our friend on Facebook, stop by our page: www.facebook.com/kidsforkidsacademy.
     Monday we will send home preorder envelopes for school pictures.  If you have more than one child in the school, let us know if you want a photo of both children together and/or separate. Sibling photos will take place on the picture day for the oldest child.  We take photos of all children so that we will have them for the school yearbook, however, the photographer will only print photo packages for families who turn in payment envelopes.  If you are on the EFT program, we can gladly draft your accounts for school pictures so please indicate that on your envelope.  You may send your child in any clothing for the photo but please send a school uniform to change them into after photos are taken.
     HALLOWEEN HAPPENING is just around the corner….For those of you who are new to our school, this event takes place from 9 am -11 am and we welcome as many volunteers as possible.  Kids can come to school in their costumes with a change of clothing in a bag.  Nothing scary, no masks, toys or weapons.  More information will be forthcoming!  We ask all kids to donate one bag of NON CANDY items (little party favors, goldfish, gummies, etc) for our costume parade.  Although we don’t permit candy in our school, we do ask our students to donate a bag of candy (no nuts please) as we make bags every year so that homeless kids can enjoy the simple pleasure of a bag of candy on Halloween.
     Finally, we will be collecting NEW backpacks, school supplies, and individually wrapped school snacks and toiletries for families who will be relocating here from Puerto Rico.  We have been alerted by the school district that they expect to welcome many kids to the public schools and we want to help them feel welcome.
Have a great weekend,
Beth Rosenthal Davis, Ed.S, NBCT
Director, Kids For Kids Academy
