Weekly Director Letter

Dear Parents,
     We are so excited that the 10 shade sails we ordered to shade our playground have arrived.  So far we have not had any volunteers from my last weekly letter to step forward and help up to install them next Saturday.  If you are available to help us with making the holes in the ground for the post and hang the sails on October 7th, please let me know.  Also if you have any kind of tool that would make it easier for us to make the holes in the ground so we don’t have to rent them, we would appreciate that as well.  We are planning to begin the project at 9:00 a.m.
     We were happy to have families attending our first  Story Time of the new school year last night.  If you missed it, we are sending home the free book of the month with your child
    Attention parents of VPK and Silver Door students: Next week you will be getting a letter home with important information as well as the field trips we have scheduled for the year and field trip guidelines. If you do not receive it, please be sure to ask the front desk for it.
     As mentioned earlier due to Irma, we postponed billing the last annual fee of $35 for the Life Cubby subscription.  Families on EFT will see that amount coming out of their draft accounts with their weekly or monthly tuition on Monday.  We have lots of things coming up for the month of October.  See the margin for school picture dates as they are divided by class.  Students may come dressed in any clothing for school pictures but are asked to bring a school uniform in a bag to change into afterwards so we don’t stain your good clothing with our art projects.  Next week we will send home preorder envelopes.  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.
     Although Miami Dade County Public Schools are closed on Monday, we are open.  Our VPK, K and 1 programs will be non-instructional (camp) so students who are absent will not be marked absent.  If you have older siblings you need care for on that day, please respond to this email so that we can be prepared to receive them.
Finally a very happy holiday to our Jewish families celebrating Yom Kippur.
Have a great weekend,
Beth Rosenthal Davis, Ed.S, NBCT
