October 2019 Newsletter

We are off to a great start! 

What a great start to the new school year.  The children are settling in and making new friends.  Thank you very much to the parents for facilitating the Drop Off/Pick Up line with excellent efficiency!  Please make sure if there is a line in the church parking lot to turn onto Mann Lot Road and queue from the parking lot across the street.  It is imperative that we keep Country Way clear for buses and traffic.  We are thrilled it went so smoothly the first week!  Lunch Bunch has begun!  Call Judy or Suzanne to check availability.  If you are interested in a yearly or monthly spot, please let us know.  Space is limited.  Please no “drop-ins”.

Owl’s Café will be open on Thursday, October 17th and Friday, October 18th!  Owl’s Café is an opportunity each month to use our imaginations and participate in an interactive café experience.  Every child will have a turn at greeting, serving, cleaning, order taking, and eating at the café with their pals.  It’s a lot of fun and the children enjoy all of the roles that they get to play.  Plus we have fun special snacks at the café!
