Happy New Year everyone! I hope that you and your family had a wonderful Christmas holiday! It’s always nice to have a break from the schedules and routines of the school year. Hopefully, after two weeks off the kids are well-rested and ready to come back. It’s going to be a great year ahead!
Before we look ahead too far I want to say a big “thank you” for all of your lovely Christmas cards and gifts. Wow! I felt so blessed by you kind words and generosity! It is really such a privilege to work with such awesome, supportive families!
The start of a new year is a great time to take a look at things and to make changes. I’d like to suggest a small change to how the children are dropped off for their Kindergarten day at school. In the next week or so I would like to have the children come into the classroom on their own at the start of the day after parents have had a chance to say their goodbyes in the hallway (with kisses and hugs as needed!). At this point in the year the children know their morning routine and are all ready, I feel, for this step of independence. I understand that it might take a little while to transition some of the children into this new routine. No worries. Thanks for your understanding and help with this!
