APRIL NEWSLETTER 2021
SPRING VACATION March 29th– April 2nd. There will be Lunch Bunch Friday March 26th. Enjoy your family time!
THANK YOU for your patience and cooperation in our parking lot with the Drop-Off and Pick-Up procedures as well as your confidence in your children’s abilities to manage this independent experience. Children have truly risen to a new level of capability walking into school on their own and you have too! It has been a year of growth for all of us!
PARENT EDUCATION in April will be a Parent Support Group led by Miss Toni and Miss Sharon. We will be discussing “How to Change Your Behavior so Your Child Will Too”. Please come prepared to discuss any challenges you are having with your children. We will have plenty of time to answer your questions. This will take place via Zoom on April 29th from 12:30 until 2:00pm. If your child attends school that day, free child care is available for Lunch Bunch during this time. Please call the office and give them your email if you will be attending.
OUR 6-WEEK PARENTING CLASSES will focus on Positive Discipline. This class will use Jane Nelson’s book with the same title. This 6-week course begins on Tuesday, April 13th. The class meets weekly in the afternoons with Miss Sharon from 12:30 – 2:00 PM and in the evenings with Miss Toni from 7:00 – 8:30 PM. Both classes will be conducted on Zoom. Please provide your email to our office so you can be included in the Zoom invitation. Enrollment forms are available on the Town & Country website. Books may be purchased for $15 and picked up during drop off or pick up. Class fee is $100 for the 6-week series and checks can be made out to Sharon McCandless or Antonia Graeber.
STUDENT SCHEDULES FOR 2021-2022 will be posted on T&C’s office window Saturday March 27th-April 4th. We will be on Spring break that week, so you are welcome to come on campus and check your child’s schedule. If you have any questions regarding placement or scheduling, Miss Toni or Miss Sharon will be happy to talk with you after April 4th when we get back from Spring Break.
PARENTS AS TEACHER’S AIDES – With the hope that we will be returning to normal, we will hold an informative meeting for any parents interested in becoming Aides for our T&C teachers next fall. Our meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, May5th at 9:30 via Zoom. This will give you a clearer idea of the responsibilities of working here. You do “earn” and “learn” for your efforts! Please call our office to provide your email and receive your Zoom invite if you are interested.
