THE CDC IS CAMPING!
We have been having a great time “camping” at the CDC. Each classroom has been specially decorated and is doing special camping-themed activities. Special thanks to our fabulous team of teachers for helping the kiddos embrace this fun theme. On Tuesday, our 2’s, 3’s and Pre-K classes enjoyed a cookout with hotdogs, chips and watermelon. Next Friday, 7/13, we will celebrate with a s’mores bake at the pavilion at 7:00 p.m. Please bring your entire family for some good, sugary fun!
SUNSCREEN AND WATER BOTTLES
We need tennis balls for the bottoms of our classroom chairs! If you have dead balls, play at a club where they will donate used balls or just want to buy us a can or two, we’d be super grateful!
MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
The first day of the 2018 – 2019 school year will soon be upon us! We will welcome the students back to school on Monday, August 20th. Please note that the CDC is closed on Thursday, August 16th and Friday, August 17th for Teacher in-service days. Our summer session for full-day students will end on Wednesday, August 15th. You will receive class placement information the first week of August.
Preschool parents… our calendar indicates that Friday, August 3rd is the last day of our summer session for preschool kiddos. However, we are easily able to accommodate your students if you’d like them to continue through Wednesday, 8/15. Just send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like your preschool student to attend their regularly scheduled days through 8/15.
During the month of August, we will have a series of parent meetings to share important information and complete necessary paperwork prior to the start of the new school year. Parents are required to attend only one of the meetings and we will schedule at various times to accommodate your busy schedules. Stay tuned for specific dates and sign-up sheets!
Your child’s safety is at the heart of everything we do and we take that responsibility very seriously. By the end of July, we will install a keypad lock to the CDC door which will allow parents to enter a four digit code to gain entry to the building. Each parent will have a unique code, allowing us to know who is in the building and when. If grandparents or special friends come to pick up your child, we ask them to continue to use the doorbell so we can greet them, check id’s and make sure they are on your approved dismissal form. More information coming soon! Special thanks to FUMC Board of Trustees for working with us on this important change!
Hopefully you’ve already found and LIKED us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/knoxvillefumccdc)! Well, now we’re on Instagram, too! If you “gram,” please follow us at cdc_at_fumc_knoxville
SAVE THE DATE!!!
We will kick off the 2018 – 2019 school year with an ice cream social on Sunday, August 19th at 4:00 p.m. We’d love to see you all there!!!
