January 2018 NEWSLETTER
HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope you had a wonderful holiday. Being around so many happy excited children certainly made Christmas merry and bright for me and I think Mrs. Benedetto and Mrs. Short would agree!
Thank you for showing your holiday spirit with our “Cards for Caring” project. We sent so many beautiful homemade cards. I know there were lots of smiles on Christmas because you cared enough to make a difference in a stranger’s life. How wonderful!
January is the month I set aside for conferencing with each of you. I try to schedule the conferences on my free time so as not to be away from the classroom and your children. I do try to be as flexible as possible. If you are unable to keep your appointment please call my cell (259-8341) and leave a message. I prefer to conference without your child present, if possible. Conferencing is an important part of our program and I look forward to the opportunity of spending time with each of you and sharing your child’s accomplishments.
Re-registration for children returning to RAP next year will start on Saturday, January 27, 9:00 a.m. You must call our registrar, Jane LoMaglio at 224-5107 to save a spot in one of our classes. Registration for si-blings and the general public opens on Saturday, February 3 at 9:00 a.m. Please pass the word to family, friends and neighbors. We generally fill quickly so if you would like a spot it is best to call that day.
I need your help. Please NO toys from home. It is impossible for me to prevent them from getting lost or broken. I think we have plenty of toys right here at school. Thanks for your help.
