April Newsletter

Dear Parents,

Spring is finally here.  Hopefully the nice weather will arrive and stay with us for the season.

The topics that will be covered this month include Easter & Passover, signs of Spring, planting, Earth Day, zoo week as well as the continuation of our study of the alphabet.

On Friday, April 7th school pictures will be taken.  We will be open regular hours for Friday full day and half-day children only.  If your child does not attend school on Fridays please adhere to the schedule that was attached to your child’s picture packet.  The schedule is as follows:

Ms. Rose’s Class              Drop-Off is at   9:00 am and Pick-Up is at 10:15 am

Ms. Niki’s Class                Drop-Off is at 10:00 am and Pick-Up is at 11:00 am

Ms. Christine’s Class     Drop-Off is at 11:15 am and Pick-Up is at 12:30 pm

Each child will be photographed individually and in a class picture as well.  The cost of the photo package is $36.00 – payment must be made in cash or by check payable to Discovering Me Nursery School.  The company deals with many schools and hundreds of children – they will not accept personal checks.  In the event that you do not like your child’s photo your money will be refunded to you in full.  When we receive the photographs we will send them home.  At that time if you decide you do not want the photos you must return the complete package to your child’s teacher and you will get your refund.  Again, there will be regular school for Friday full day children only.  All other children must follow the schedule above.  Please do not remain at school with your child and please be prompt at drop off and pick up times because we are on a very tight schedule.  Thanks!

We are sure that most, if not all of you are aware that our outdoor play area was severely damaged during the last snow storm.  We are working diligently to quickly get it repaired.  We have ordered replacement panels for the damaged fence – that is the first thing we need to take care of and the new awning should be completed during spring break.  We are hoping that will be done in the next couple of weeks.  Our goal is to have all repairs completed by mid April.

Our Annual Family Fun Day has been scheduled for Wednesday, June 7th.  It will take place from 10:00am until 2:00pm at D’Onofrio Park in New Rochelle – mark this date on your calendar.  There will be no school on this day.  Also note that in lieu of a spring fundraiser we will be having a 50/50 raffle which will be held at Family Fun Day.  All details will follow at a later date.

Just a few reminders:

School will be closed for Spring Break from Monday April 10th through Friday, April 14th as well as Monday, March 17th.  School will reopen on Tuesday, April 18th.

If you have received a notice about your child’s medical/physical you must submit an up to date one.  This is a serious matter that must be taken care of immediately or your child will not be able to attend school.

Please update your child’s change of clothes.  The warmer months are here and most of the clothes at school are winter clothes and probably do not even fit your child anymore.

Friday full day children only – pizza money for April, May and June is now due and must be paid in cash.  The amount due is $40.00.  Thanks.

Please don’t forget to include utensils and drinks with your child’s lunch.

Now that the weather is getting warmer, please dress your child appropriately for outdoor play – play clothes & sneakers are best — NO party shoes, sandals or party dresses – again, safety comes before fashion.  Also keep in mind that the mornings are still cool so send your child to school with a jacket or sweatshirt. Thanks!
