SUMMER ATTIRE

Summer days can be really hot, and we want the children to be comfortable.  Sneakers are still the preferred choice of shoe attire because they are safer footwear for the playground.  Sandals are not comfortable because of the mulch and because children are not able to run and climb well.  Flip-flops are NOT ALLOWED unless it is for a “special occasion” and a note has gone home to indicate that.

With the summer heat coming into full effect here in Florida, we want to make sure your children are protected. We ask that you apply sunscreen to your child before you bring them to school.  Thank you in advance!

 

SouthernSnoBalls.jpgSNOBALL DAYS

Southern Snoballs will be visiting the center Monday, June 19.  If your child will be at the center and wants a snoball, please remember to send in $2.  A sign will be posted to remind you!  And if you want a snoball, too, the truck will be arriving at 10am.

 


celebration.jpgMOVING ON

Our Moving On Celebration was held Thursday, May 25.  We want to thank ALL the parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, significant others, siblings and anyone else that showed up to help “send” our VPKers to kindergarten.  We really had a great time, considering the rain and having to move the festivities inside.  Thank you for adjusting to the tight quarters!

 

FATHER'S DAY

Father's Day is June 18th, and we want to wish all our fathers a great day. Thank you dads for all you do!

 

VACATIONS & SUMMER CALENDARSummer Calendar2017.jpg

Summer is a time when you will probably be taking weekend getaways or long family vacations.  Remember to let Ms. Andrea or Ms. Martha know when your child will NOT be at school.  This will make it easier for meal counts as well as keeping our ratios correct.  Teachers will be taking days off, too, and we need to know when to call in extra staff.

VPK children and School agers have been sent a Weekly Summer schedule.

 


 

TIPS FOR ENCOURAGING SUMMER READING

Make sure your kids have plenty of books. Take your kids to the library or the bookstore to pick out some interesting new books. Go to yard sales, and sort through the books there. Organize a book swap in your neighborhood. Do whatever you need to do to keep a fresh supply of books around.
 
Always pack up books, magazines or newspapers whenever you go somewhere, for your kids and for yourself. Make sure your kids see you reading, whether it's on the beach, while waiting for the softball game to start, or at home.reading a book.jpg
 
Try to keep some time available for reading. This is perhaps the hardest thing, as schedules fill up with sports, cookouts, trips and movies. These are all fun, too. But there's no substitute for the occasional afternoon spent under a tree exploring far-off worlds through books.
 
Encourage social reading. If your child wants to read a book because other kids are reading it, by all means get a copy. This reinforces the idea that reading is cool, and gives your child a chance to talk about the book with others. Take the kids to see a movie based on a book, and also read the book. Do whatever you can to make reading cool and social.
