Weekly Update #14 December 1, 2017

Hello Parents!

We hope you had a great Thanksgiving break. Since winter break is right around the corner and most of our children are experiencing a lot of excitement, please make sure you are reminding your children to listen and be ready to learn every day for school the next few weeks! We also have many fun events coming up, so please be sure to read your emails and the following information below.

Here are some updates and important information:

-Farm Feast is on Wednesday, the 6th. Please have your children wear their costumes to school-ready to go! If you are picking up your children, please be here to 11:15. Please try to arrive slightly earlier if you are driving additional children to check with Mrs. Funderburg. The Farm Feast is located 7616 Business Park Dr, Greensboro, NC 27409- down the road from the school. We will begin performing as soon as all the children arrive. Parents will leave their children with their teachers and enter into the room of performance. As soon as the performance is over, we will begin eating. After we eat, you may take your child with you. You will have to sign out with the teacher before you leave. If you drove other children, you will have to drive them back to the school first. Remember, there is limited spacing and just enough seating for the children- two adults per student allowed. We are in NEED of meat and milk! Please sign up for these items if you can!
