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 Sunday April 22nd, but let's try to make every day “Earth Day” ...as it's the only one we've got!

 

Save the Date!

VPK Graduation will be held on Tuesday May 22nd at 9:00 am in the Chapel. (More info to follow!)

 

 

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

For our upcoming VPK students

Parents...if your child is ready to enroll in our VPK program for the 2018-2019 school year, (if they are still 4 years old by Sept. 1, 2018) 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 upcoming school 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!

 

Important Reminders and New DCF Policy:

 

Please remember to have your child here by 8:30am, as coming in later tends to disrupt the class schedule. As per our parent handbook any child coming in after 9am will require a doctor’s note to attend school that day.

 

As per DCF rules: We must be notified that morning if your child will not be attending school that day. (All SR students are required by the Coalition to hand in an absence note for each day they are out, including a doctor’s note if your child was seen by one while out.) If you do not call your child out for the day we are required by DCF to call all contacts on your child’s list. Your child will be marked absent for the day if they are not here/we have not heard from you or were able to reach you by 9am.
