WE’RE OFF TO A GREAT START!
It’s Day 10 of the new school year, but it feels like these little preschoolers have been with their new teachers and friends forever. The expected “transition time” has been almost non-existent and much of that is thanks to you! Thank you for being great communicators with your new teachers, for complying with new procedures and (most of all!) for trusting us with your children. We are thankful and grateful for you all! The staff and I have developed a vision-word for this school year: COMMUNICATION! We want to make sure that we are communicating with you all at the highest levels. Please let us know how you’re doing. You’ll hear from your child’s teacher once a week via e-mail and will have daily communication at drop-off and pick-up. Melanie and I are always available via text, phone or e-mail to chat, so don’t ever hesitate to reach out.

THE CDC IS CLOSED MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 3RD!

BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT: TUESDAY, 9/11 FROM 5:30 – 7:00
We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been up to and the best way to do that is to throw open our doors and welcome parents in! Please join us on Tuesday, 9/11 from 5:30 – 7:00 to tour classrooms and see demo lessons of all our Enrichment Offerings: GymBus, Suzuki Academy of Knoxville, Sign Language, Yoga and Soccer Shots!
FUMC FALL FEST
SAVE THE DATE FOR FUMC’S ANNUAL FALL FEST: OCTOBER 29 FROM 5:30 – 7:30. This fantastic event is a favorite for the FUMC community and we want the CDC families to join in the fun! The evening will include an awesome “Trunk or Treat,” games, and fellowship. Fall Fest has a wonderful history of providing a safe, inclusive environment for children of all abilities, so many participants will be children with exceptionalities and games will be developed that are inclusive for all.

SEARCHING FOR GROSS MOTOR TOYS
Do you have tricycles, cozy coupes or other gross motor toys that you’re not using? If so, we’d love to have them! We want to create a gross motor play area in the Fellowship Hall to use on rainy days and need to add some toys! Thank you!
