We are looking for people who are interested in doing our Mystery Guest Reading Program this school year! Mystery Readers are special guests who come to our classrooms to read a story to students. Mystery Readers can be parents, grandparents, older siblings, or other relatives. We can schedule a Mystery Reader at different times to suit your schedule, provided that it aligns with our classroom schedule. Please let an administrator know if you are interested in signing up for this!
The ASQ is a screening tool that will provide a quick check of your child’s development. The information you supply will help reveal your child’s strengths and uncover any areas of concern. We will be passing out the ASQ’s again this year to all families next week. We ask that you please fill them out and return them by September 18th. Once we look them over, we will contact any families who scores show some possible concerns. If we do not contact you, please assume that your child’s scores did not yield any concerns.
With the beginning of the school year starting, we decided to also start the Scholastic Book Clubs again. This allows you to purchase quality books for your child at a discounted price. Last week we sent home an order form in your child’s mailbox. You can order by returning the form with a check to your child’s teacher or you can order online with the online code provided. Orders are due on September 8th. If you have any questions please see the office.
Nut Free Policy
Just a reminder that we are a nut free center therefore we ask that when you bring in treats for birthdays or a lunch for your child please ensure that it does not contain any nut products or is made in a plant that processes nuts. We have several children currently that have allergies to nuts and we want to ensure their safety. Please thoroughly check all labels before sending in products for your child. We have attached a copy of the nut policy for you to look over.
This is a friendly reminder that Joyland Preschool closes at 6:00. This means you should have your child picked up and out of the building by no later than 6:05. Per our policies, any children still in the building after 6:05 will be charged a late fee of $1 per minute. Also, all parents must leave the building with their child by 6:05 so that our teachers may go home.
