November 2019   
Dear Parents,
Happy November!

Where has the time gone?  October quickly flew by.  Thank you to all the families that participated in the Trunk or Treat.  That is always a fun event. 

We couldn’t have ordered better weather for our pumpkin patch field trip.  I always enjoy going to Oma’s, it’s a great way to start the fall/winter season. 

Be sure to take note of our upcoming events, we have a lot of fun things planned and don’t want you to miss out on anything. 

Mark your calendar and let your family know about our Christmas Program.  The children and teachers work hard on the Christmas songs and they really look forward to singing their hearts out for you.  The Christmas program is Wednesday December 4th at 6:30 pm. 

Please join us for our first family fundraising dinner of the 2019-2020 school year.  It will be held at Rubio’s, in Santee, on Thursday Nov. 21 between the hours of 2-9 PM.  Rubio’s will donate 20% of the proceeds from your meal to our school.  Make sure to present the flyer when ordering.

On this Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving we thank God for our families, our country and for the men and women who protect it for us, at home and aboard.  We appreciate our military and law enforcement families and their sacrifice for us.

We can truly say we have been blessed.  Happy Thanksgiving.

 

Blessings,

Shawn Santo

Cold weather is here
Now is a good time to check your child’s spare clothes in their cubbies. They may need to be changed out for bigger and warmer clothes. Please make sure you put your child’s name on the extra clothes and their belongings.
 

SDMOM’s need our help
San Diego Military Outreach Ministries (SDMOM) has a long tradition of serving military families. How can we help? With Thanksgiving fast approaching we can help by donating nonperishable food items. When you are at the grocery store, pick up a few extra items to help a deserving military family.
 

Please slow down
There are residential homes and a retirement community near the preschool, please drive safely.

 

See’s Fundraiser

We will begin our annual See’s candy fundraiser in November.  We will have the orders back before Christmas.  This is a big fundraiser.  The top class will win a pizza party.  We are saving the fundraiser money to be able to get a secure entrance to the preschool.

ILLNESS POLICY:

 If your child has a fever, vomits or has diarrhea at school or home, they may not return to school for 24 hours after the symptoms are gone.It is very important to keep your child home if they are not feeling well.  If you have any doubts it is better to keep your child home one more day than to send then to school when they are not quite up to it.  If your child has conjunctivitis (pink eye) they may not return to school until they have received antibiotic treatment for 24 hours.  Remember good handwashing is very effective in keeping disease from spreading.  Our policy will cut down on the transition of disease to other children, and our staff.

EMERGENCY INFORMATION

If anything has changed with your emergency or contact information, please contact the Preschool Office so we can update and be sure we have your correct information.  When a little one is ill, time is of the essence in trying to reach a parent.  In addition if working, please leave-detailed instructions if needed to make it easier for us to contact you at work.  Cell phones are not always reliable.  We need a back up way to reach you.
