A Busy April
Spring has finally arrived!!! We
are all so grateful to see the grass getting greener and the playground
getting drier. It has been a long winter and now we are ready to enjoy the
fun of April.
This month we have a lot going on.
Please find a calendar for the month of April attached. Keep it handy. I
will try to explain our planned events here.
April 6th: Pre-K Spring
Party – See Sign-ups
Egg Hunt at
We will bus ONLY Childcare
students to Warren Haven. Like our Halloween Parade, all children, both
Pre-K and Preschool children are invited. Just bring a basket and meet us at
10:00am at Warren Haven. Directions will be provided if necessary.
April 8th: Preschool
Spring Party – See Sign
April 9th: We are Closed
for Good Friday
April 12 – April 16: Spring
All Childcare students MUST be
signed up before April 9th for the Spring Recess.
THERE WILL BE NO PREK/PRESCHOOL
CLASSES THAT WEEK!!!!
April 19-23: Annual St. Judes Trike
Parents will receive pledge
sheets. We supply the trikes and keep a record of how many times your child
goes around our track. This is a great way to help children in need.
We have received most of your re- registrations for summer and fall 2004. If
you have not sent in the paperwork, please do so as soon as possible. The
summer program is limited and we are filling up fast.
If you forgot to
send in the re-registration fee of $15, it will be added to your next
invoice. Please call Peter with any questions.
FYI: Parents of
children who have “graduated” from Kindergarten (and older) will have the
opportunity to go to the Hackettstown Pool 3 days a week this summer (T/W/TH).
We are looking into renting a small van/bus so that we can take more
children at a time. Mrs. Hourihan will ALWAYS be with the children at the
More Summer info will be coming.
THANKS FOR YOUR
The N0-TOY rule
has really been working! We are so grateful. Please keep it up.
Also, we love
having the children stay for Pizza on Fridays. However, a couple of problems
occur every week.
1/ If you are
sending your child for pizza until 12:30 the extra fee for that half hour of
childcare is $2.75. If your child stays until 1:00 the extra fee for
childcare is $5.50. This should be put in the payment box – NOT the pizza
box – with a note saying who it will be for.
2/ The cost of pizza
is $1 per slice.Please put that money in the pizza box. I order pizza
that day and pay for it that day when the pizza arrives. It is
tough when a parent writes an IOU or doesn’t pay until
later in the day. I often have to put extra money in. PLEASE sign your
child’s name Friday morning and pay Friday morning. If your child will eat
two pieces, please pay $2.
FYI: Mr. and Mrs.
Hourihan will be away from Thursday April 22 until Friday April 30. During
our absence Mrs. Pursell and all of the teachers will be ready to answer any
questions and keep things running smoothly. We will be checking in often.
Enjoy the Holiday Season!
