We will be having a Dr. Seuss week in the month of March to celebrate his birthday! This will be something fun for the children to participate in. If your child has a Dr. Seuss book, please feel free to bring it in to share. Look out for the flyer that will be sent out for more details on what to expect for the week.
La Petite Feet Dance will be starting back up for another session starting March 6-April 3. The session is $70 and will be held on Tuesday’s. If you would like to sign-up for the session, please fill out a flyer that is located by the back door and bring in a check to the office. Tiny Tikes is currently going on and so is Amazing Athletes. These extracurricular classes are ongoing throughout the year. Sign-up sheets are located at the back door as well.
Please feel free to login to the “for parents” section on our website. It will allow you to see the curriculum, read the class blogs and view photos of your child’s class. It is password protected for each classroom. If you do not have the password for your child’s classroom please contact the office.
Please remember to use the Pro Care station to sign in and out your child daily. It is a licensing requirement. If the station is not working for you, please let the office know so that we can correct the problem immediately.
We are always seeking out to better our programs, so we encourage parents and families to let us know how we are doing. If you would like to share anything with the office that would be most appreciated. We look forward to working with you to ensure your child is receiving the best education.
In the month of February, the classrooms have been busy working on crafts and discussions for the many holidays that were celebrated. We redeemed several points from Scholastic to purchase holiday books that have started to fill our class libraries. Thank you, parents, for purchasing books online with Scholastic. Every time you order there are points that the school receives for free books and we have had an order every month! Check your parent mailboxes for the next month’s Scholastic flyer.
We are always adding new students to our school and would like to welcome the new families that have started with us recently. Welcome! We are glad you are here. We also welcome a new staff member, Iman. She is our new Assistant in the Primary 1 classroom. We are excited to have her join our team.
January Recap: In January we welcomed the Langston, Cho, and Lopez families to our Little Acorn community. We are glad that you are here! We also had a great turn out for our open house. Thank you to all the parents and families that attended. The teachers have been busy getting the children back on track from the winter break. There have been many winter crafts that the children have created and decorated their classroom with. La Petite Feet is back for another dance class session and Amazing athletes has started their Thursday afternoon sports class as well. Tiny Tikes will be back Feb. 6th. If you would like to sign up for any of these extracurricular activities, please feel free to grab a form from the back door of the school. You can drop off payments in the office.
Afternoon enrichments are continuing to progress. The children have had no problem with picking up where they left off. New and unique cooking projects have been introduced, winter Spanish words have been learned, and many of the children have mastered their computer skills. If you are interested, the program ABC Mouse can be downloaded and used at home.
December Recap: Happy Holidays Little Acorn Families! For the month of December, the children have been wrapping up their academic work and Montessori lessons. The teachers have been working hard to make December fun with holiday activities as well. We enjoyed having a fun holiday week before we headed out for the winter break. It was enjoyable seeing the children participate in all the fun from wearing their pajamas to school to cooking, decorating, and eating their holiday cookies!
We had great success with Hathaway-Sycamore Child and Family Services! Thank you to all who had an opportunity to grab a tag off our tree this year. We will be looking forward to other opportunities in helping our community during the coming year.
There will be a few new students joining Little Acorn upon returning from the break and a few that will be leaving us. They will be missed dearly but we wish the families nothing but the best of luck! The office would like to thank you for the generous gifts you left. We wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday!
November Recap: This month has been all about harvest and healthy bodies. The classrooms have really dived into the theme. The cooking enrichment classes have prepared several healthy snacks and our art enrichment has been festive with their Thanksgiving crafts. We were excited to have our very first scholastic book fair and thoroughly pleased with the outcome. The school raised $436.79 for new books! Thank you parents and families for taking the time out to visit our book fair. If you missed it or were unable to stop by, don’t worry we will be looking forward to the next one in spring.
Our annual thanksgiving feast was held this month and the children seemed to really enjoy eating lunch together as a whole school. They were able to visit with their friends and teachers while consuming some delicious dishes prepared by the parents and families. As always, thank you parents for taking the time out of your busy lives to share dishes for our special events. It is greatly appreciated.
I would like to take this time to welcome our new families that have joined us recently. The Ribas, Chung, Ortiz, and White families. Welcome to Little Acorn!
We have come to an end with our See’s Candies fundraiser. The school is excited to see how much was raised and hopefully we will be looking out for a new sandbox on our playground!
