December, 2013 Newsletter
I am proud to announce that Happy Days was just named the winner of the Ocean Happenings online magazine’s Best in Child Care category!!
Happy Days welcomes Ryan C., Ryan G., and Charlie! In November we celebrated Liam B., Trent, Ryan, and Miss Laura’s birthdays. Courtney and Sarah were Miss Laura’s Star Students and made beautiful presentations! Thank you so much for your wonderful support for our fundraiser. Thanks to your efforts, our winter magic show will take place on December 16th and a puppet show will be scheduled for January!
All month we were preparing for Thanksgiving fun. We had themes of Native Americans, turkeys, and Thanksgiving; all of which were enhanced with literacy, science, social studies, and math components. We will culminate our month with our Thanksgiving Feast celebration this Wednesday the 27th. Our full day students rotated between afternoon weeks of math, language, social studies, and science, with literacy activities mixed in everyday. In December, our focus will be on reindeer, gingerbread men, and the holidays. Each week there will be a new letter of the week based on our theme.
Our parent/teacher conferences are next week. We look forward to meeting with you to discuss your child’s progress. If your child is new, we will be happy to schedule a conference for the end of January so that we have time to get to know your child. Please remember that we have to keep each conference to 15 minutes. Two Friday Night Babysitting evenings are scheduled on Dec. 6th and 13th.
Our winter magic show is Monday, December 16th at 10:30. All Happy Days students are welcome to come for the show! Also, we will be having an Open House then so if you know of anyone who might be interested in coming to Happy Days, please let them know to call the school to register for the show!
We will be coming to school in our PJ’s on Thursday, December 19th and Friday, December 20th to watch The Polar Express and the Grinch Who Stole Christimas. We’ll also enjoy some hot chocolate and a treat as we watch.
And finally, just a reminder to check every so often on our website, www.happydayspreschoolnj.com, for pictures of your kids in action. We very much appreciate your referrals and give $100 referral awards.
