MARCH NEWS 2013
Busy, busy, busy, is all I can say about life at Almost Home these days! The winter weather has not gotten us down! There is so much energy and excitement in all of our classrooms.
It seems every year that it is around this time that we look around and say, “wow, they have gotten so big, they are doing so much more than they were in September!” The growth and development that occurs in each class is always so amazing. It is almost as if we can see the wheels spinning in their brains as they acquire new skills and understandings. We hope that you too are able to recognize these changes. When we live day to day with the children it is easy to not notice how much is going on. It is upon reflection that we can witness the maturation and accomplishments all of the kids are making.
On March 14th at 5:00, we will hold a PRESCHOOL OPEN HOUSE for parents who have toddlers entering the preschool program as well as current preschool parents who would like to learn more about the preschool experience at Almost Home. The directors and some of the preschool teachers will join me in a presentation about our philosophies, curriculum goals, activities, and classroom structure. We are extremely proud of our preschool program and continue to work hard to build upon it year to year.
This year we have made extended efforts to communicate with you and share our program goals, curriculum, and classroom activities. We hope you have had a chance to look at the amazing work your kids are doing. Toddler parents are welcome to drop into a preschool class and take a look around!
A few Lunch Menu changes: Simply Dinner is no longer able to provide lunches for us, but they will continue to offer their delicious dinners. So, we have included additional menu items from Village Pizza and will now be offering lunches Monday through Friday. In an effort to simplify the ordering process, all lunches are $4.00 and the menu will remain consistent from week to week.
Primerica would like to offer a workshop at Almost Home that teaches people how money works. It is being presented by the largest independent financial services marketing organization in North America. It will show you how to save for retirement, fund your child’s college education, reduce your taxes, maximize your savings, and diversify your investment choices. Please contact Bunny or Fran to indicate your interest in attending this program.
Registration packets for this coming summer and next fall will be sent home this month. If you have questions about the potential class your child will be moving into, please let us know. We encourage you to meet with us to learn more about the programs as your child grows and moves through the classes at Almost Home.
Let’s hope March does not come in like a lion, but rather a lamb!
Have a great month.
