WELCOME TO COOL WEATHER!
We are so excited to welcome cooler temperatures and take full advantage of our beautiful playground! Please be sure to change out your children’s extra sets of clothing for warm weather clothing!
We are proud to be one of the first preschools in Knox County to require 100% of our students to be vaccinated. In keeping with that policy, we strongly recommend that all our families and students get a flu shot this year. Publix is offering $10 gift cards if you get your flu shot there! If you have questions about the flu shot, please reach out to Leigh or Mel. We have many parents who are physicians and are happy to talk to our families about the safety and importance of vaccines and the flu shot!
ASSESSMENT DATE: THURSDAY, 10/24!!
Our annual DHS Licensing Renewal and Program Assessment is scheduled for Thursday, 10/24. We’ve been working hard to build vibrant classroom environments and train teachers on best practices for our assessment! There are a few key areas where parents can help us achieve our 3-star rating. First, please be sure to send a very healthy lunch for your student, especially on assessment day! Students need 1 liquid milk/milk alternative, 1 protein, I grain, and 2 fruits or veggies (or 1 fruit and 1 veggie). Click here to read a list of recommended foods in each category! Secondly, please be sure to keep your child home if they are under the weather. If you have even the slightest concern that they may be under the weather, please exercise extreme caution.
