Each year, we like to ask for parent feedback to get an idea of how we are doing here at Joyland. Along with this newsletter we are providing you with a parent evaluation. We would greatly appreciate it if you took a few minutes to let us know how we are doing and how we could improve our program. Once we have finished reviewing them, we will compile all the information and let you know the results in next month’s newsletter. Our plan is also to take into account your feedback to change our programming accordingly. The survey can be filled out anonymously and placed in the box next to the time clock. The surveys are due back in the office by May 17th.
On May 24th, you will receive your child’s last progress report for this school year. If you would like to schedule a conference please call or e-mail the office. In addition to progress reports each child who has been here longer than 30 days will receive a portfolio containing artwork/writing sheets completed by your child as well as photos of them throughout their day at Joyland!
To celebrate the end of our academic year in our Stars and Kindergarten rooms, we will be having graduation ceremonies. The Stars class will have their graduation on Wednesday, May 22nd at 3:00 p.m. at the Coffman Pavilion at Coffman Park, located at 5200 Emerald Parkway. The Kindergarteners will have their graduation on Friday, May 24th at 2:30 p.m. at the Kaltenbach Park Community Center, located at 5985 Cara Rd. Parents are welcome to attend and we hope you are able to join us!
Drop offs and Pick ups
We would like to remind parents that it is extremely important that you make sure to let a teacher know when you are dropping off and picking up each day. We have several parents who do not walk their child completely into the classroom at drop off or who do not let teachers know they are picking up their child. We need you to let a teacher know when you are doing this so that we can make sure we are properly supervising the children.
