Picture Day is almost here!     

Milestones Photography will be taking Spring/Class/VPK Graduation pictures on the following days: Wed. 4/26 & Thurs. 4/27.  If your child does not attend on the day their class is scheduled, you may bring them in and stay with them while they have their individual as well as their class pictures taken. Siblings are welcome to join their brother/ sister!  Feel free to bring play clothes for your child to change into after their pictures are taken. 

 

***Please note that pictures will be done a bit differently this year. Pre-order packets will be coming soon to your child’s file folder for you to return before your child’s picture day. Only the children returning the packet will be getting their individual pictures taken. (All classes will still participate in a class photo on their given day.)***

Please take some time to teach your child how we are ALL responsible for taking care of our home: Earth! A simple demonstration of recycling, or picking up litter makes a big impact on how children will act in years to come.  Did you know that Earth Day originated on April 22, 1970 in San Francisco, and is now celebrated in over 100 countries worldwide?  Earth Day is acknowledged on Saturday April 22nd. (But let's try to make every day “Earth Day” ...it's the only one we've got!)

 

For our upcoming VPK students

Parents...if your child is ready to enroll in our VPK program for the 2017-2018 school year, (if they are still 4 years old by Sept. 1, 2017) please be aware that there is a voucher needed to sign them up for this wonderful program! With the voucher your child will receive 3 free hours per day of schooling next year! (“Wrap-around care” is also available from 2 to 5 days per week for a discounted price along with this voucher!) Applications are being accepted at the following website:      www.earlylearningcoalitionsarasota.org

 

 

Please scroll down that page and look for the colorful “VPK” box to begin your registration process! You will need information such as your child's social security number, and be able to scan and upload a copy of their birth certificate along with proof of your residence, such as your driver's license. Once you have completed the application process, keep an eye out for an email from the coalition as they will be sending your child's voucher to you via email. Once you have printed the voucher, please bring it to Ms. Lauren so that your child's spot may be secured for the following year!

 

If you have any VPK questions, or would like to request a VPK teacher for your child for next year please see Ms. Lauren in the office...she will be more than happy to help you!

 

Upcoming Events

VPK Graduation will be held on Friday June 2nd at 9:00 am (more info to follow)

 

Please check our Parent Bulletin Board and Facebook for the latest information concerning Kindergarten Round-Up dates!

 

 

All Parents: Please remember to call us in the morning if your child will not be attending school that day. (All VPK & SR students are required by the Coalition to hand in an absence note for these days not attended.) Please try to have your child here by 8:30am, as coming in later tends to disrupt the class schedule. Any child coming in after 9am may require a doctor’s note.
