There will be a sign-up sheet for the parents that wish to bring in a treat. The children will be playing party games on this day and will bring home a treat bag. Every child is invited to attend.
The snow has started and if you havent’ already please be prepared. Attached is a snow day form. If your child will not attend on school snow days please complete the form and return it to us. If your child will not attend on a day a school district other then Laker’s dismisses you will need to notify the center on that day of your child’s absence. The purpose of the snow day form is so that we have an idea of how many staff persons we need to have at the center.
Please take the rain boots home and just leave the snow boots in their locker. We also recommend that the children have an extra set of gloves in case one gets lost or is too wet. Also please make sure that your child’s boots and snowpants fit them and that they are capable of putting them on. Also snow pants should be labeled with their name as these often get mixed up. This is also a great time of the year to clean the extra stuff out of your child’s lockers such a summer clothes, old projects and toys. We try to keep things organized but we need your help. The children really enjoy playing outside even when we think it’s too cold.
