Parents: THURSDAY is our Valentine’s Day celebration! If your child does not attend on Thursday and you would like them to come, they may come at 9:00 AND they would have to be picked up by 11:45. PLEASE E MAIL ME, if you plan to bring your child on Thursday. Thank you.
REMINDER…..The Gala date is approaching…..MARCH 23 at the beautiful Sheraton in Atlantic City. Be sure to get your tickets for a wonderful, entertaining evening with dinner, dancing, silent auction and chance table of beautiful gift baskets! The ticket form can be printed from the St. Joe’s web page or ask Ellen Fletcher.
The Gala committee is in need of empty gift baskets, basket stuffing and ribbons if you have any to donate please bring them in and give to me. Also, any parents that have a business who would like to purchase an ad in our Gala book, make a donation, or donate an item(s) please see me. I am a member of the Committee and we are on the search for any donations to help us!! Thank you as always for your wonderful support!! It all benefits the children!
PLEASE BE SURE TO CHECK CUBBIES and replenish Tissues this month. We are keeping their individual boxes of tissues in their cubbies and not having a ‘common’ tissues box in the room. This should help cut down on the spread of germs.
Please teach your child TO SNEEZE AND COUGH into their armpit if a tissue is not handy. The main issue is that most of the children sneeze and cough into the air and this is how the germs spread. We encourage that they sneeze/cough into their armpit all the time. Your reinforcing this at home will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
We have begun having the children wash their hands in the classroom sinks after they use the bathroom, using a sanitizing hand wash. I clean and disinfect the classroom sinks every day before I leave.
Bathrooms are being cleaned every day at the end of the school day.
Please do not put notes to us in the lunch box. Place any notes in an envelope and e mail me that the note is in your child’s backpack/bag. Thank you.
NAP TIME NOTE: Please send in only a small ‘stuffy’ if your child likes to rest with something special. PLEASE NO ‘light up or musical’ stuffed animals. Also not, hard plastic dolls, only soft stuffed animals. Thank you.
TOYS FROM HOME….. Please only send in toys on SHOW AND TELL DAYS. Please read the Show and Tell section of my web page to see what days we are having Show and Tell weekly. It usually is on Wednesday and Thursday, but some weeks it may change. Thank you.
PLEASE dress your child according to the weather. We DO go outside as long as the temperature is above 38 degrees. A hat, mittens/gloves should be sent in every day! There has been a lot of illnesses these past two months, and we just want your child to be dressed properly so that they can stay well. Thank you.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH for your kind Dunkin Doughnts gift card for Teacher Appreciation Day! Your kindness is greatly appreciated!
