    Care During Thanksgiving Week

    As many of you may know:

    • The Tuesday before Thanksgiving, is considered a Thursday class day here on campus. 
    • Please follow your Thursday care giving schedule.
    • If you are not scheduled for Thursdays, but need care on November 24th, please let me know. 
    • The day before Thanksgiving, which is a Wednesday, is considered a Friday class day.
    • Care-giving history has proven to us that many folks do not use care on the day before Thanksgiving. 
    • We have often kept our student staff on-board for the day in anticipation of our usual number of children only to find that the census is low.  I would like to let our student staff leave early for home, if at all possible.
    • We are holding a special sign-up for care on Wednesday, November 25th
    • Details are on the front counter. 
    • Thanks for signing on one of the clipboards – this will give us a better indication of staffing needs for November 25.

    Chancellor Gow Visiting

    • Chancellor Gow will join us to play his guitar for the children.
    • Tuesday, November 10th at 9:00.
    • You are welcome to join us too!

    Contracts Out Soon!

    Where does time go?  We are already talking about the next round of contracts!  You will soon find a new contract posted on your child’s locker.  On it you will find the sign-up for:

    • Exam Week in December
    • January intersession (January 4 – 22)
    • Spring Semester
    • Contracts will be due by Monday, November 23

    I appreciate your efforts in returning these to me in a timely manner – it allows me to get a jump-start on staffing for these three periods of time.

    Weather Changing

    • As the weather changes, it’s wise to send your children in layers.
    • Clothing that can be removed or added throughout the day works well with those cool mornings and warm afternoons.

    Label Please

    • We have lots of jackets, hats, shoes, blankets, etc.
    • Please – whenever possible – label your child’s belongings so that we can more easily find the proper owner.
