March Newsletter

Here we are in March already!!  The days are getting a little longer; the weather is…unpredictable, but hopefully it will begin to stay sunny and warmer longer.  I know some of us are looking forward to spring break, which will begin April 3rd and end on April 7th.  We will be closed March 24th for Staff Development.  Please make sure all of your CANI swiping, copayments, and tuition is caught up before spring break.

March is a pretty quiet month.  The children will continue working and perfecting skills they have already learned and will be learning new lessons.  We have had some staff changes recently and we appreciate your understanding and patience; if your child has been affected by one of these changes.  If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to call the office or stop in and observe your child’s classroom.

We will begin our Spring Fund Raiser on March 6 and we have just 2 weeks to sell and raise as much as we can.  If you did not sell for the fall fundraiser make sure that you do for this one.  We want all of our families and parents to be involved.  This fund Raiser will help with some of the cost associated with graduation.

It is that time already to prepare for graduation.  We will soon put in our order.  If your child is a graduate this year, please be prepared to pay all applicable fees.   The fee for graduation is $40.00, this includes the cap with tassel, gown, 4 invitations per family, diploma, and other expenses. Please note that ALL tuition/co-pays/fees will have to be paid IN FULL, for your child to participate in the ceremony.  If you would like to set up a payment arrangement please stop by the office or call as soon as possible to take care of your outstanding obligations. 

We have had one major change in our graduation…the Graduation Ceremony will be held on THURSDAY JUNE 1st instead of Friday June 2nd.  The time remains the same, graduates are expected to arrive at the church at 5pm and the ceremony will begin promptly at 6pm.  Please mark your calendars for this change.  The ceremony will be held at Fellowship Missionary Church.  Please note that space is limited in the chapel area that we use, so please limit the family members to immediate family only and no other children.

MLK Family Movie Night at the Hessen Cassel Library on March 17th the movie starts at 6pm; but if you want to be counted in for pizza, please arrive by 5:30 for a meet and greet and library fun.
