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 Zoo Animals, Easter & Passover, Earth Day, Planting, Dinosaur Week and the continuation of our study of the letters of the alphabet.

On Friday, April 5th 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 $40.00 – 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 and half-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!

Our Annual Family Fun Day is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, June 5th.  It will take place from 10:00am until 2:00pm at D’Onofrio Park in New Rochelle – we will advise as soon as we get written confirmation.  There will be no school on Family Fun 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 15th through Friday, April 19th as well as Monday, April 22nd.  School will reopen on Tuesday, April 23rd.

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 $46.00.  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!

Carol, Laurie & Staff
