Director’s Update – November 9th

by lisa on November 9, 2017

Good morning!

I hope you are having a great day so far. I have just a few reminders for next week.

-November tuition is due
-Next week is Family Chapel**
-All donations for the food drive must be in by pick up today. We will be delivering the food to the Allen Food Pantry tomorrow morning. If anyone is interested in helping deliver the donations please be at Suncreek Kids at 9:30 tomorrow morning, everyone is invited to help. Thank you again for all the generous donations!
-Thanksgiving Feasts – Wednesday for M/W Orange & Thursday for all other classes. Parents do not attend this event.
-Thanksgiving Break – Suncreek Kids will be closed the week of November 20-23 for the Thanksgiving break. We will resume our normal schedule on Monday, November 27th.

We had a scheduled tornado drill yesterday and the children did a great job with it. Next week we will practice a lock down drill too. These are safety practices we are mandated to perform. The children always do a wonderful job of listening and following directions. I like to mention to you when we do them so in case you hear your child say something to you about them you know why.

Lastly, as always please adhere to the illness policy we have in place. A child must be symptom free of illness without medication aide for a full 24 hours before they can return to school. I appreciate your help with this in advance.
