Happy Times February 2012

The month of Love & Friendship. And there is so much love to go around at Halsey Schools. From the inherent love between mommies, daddies and children to the love & friendship that grows between us as we learn and experience the fun of school together. This month we will be learning a lot about the importance and meaning of Love & Friendship. 


Valentine’s Day Party:  On Tuesday, February 14, we will have our Valentines Day Parties!  The parties are from 10:00 -12:30.  A list of the children’s names will be sent home for the valentines cards and treats.  In addition, a sign-up sheet will be posted up above the children’s folders.  All children enjoy handing out and receiving Valentine cards/treats from their friends.  Happy Valentines Day!! Check out the fun last year!

2012 – 2013 Enrollment:  It’s time to make plans for the 2012-2013 school year.  Can you believe it?!  Good News! Your child’s space has already been reserved.  On February 20, for your convenience your account will be automatically billed a non-refundable $199 deposit (per family) to confirm the reservation. In September, the non-refundable $199 deposit will be applied toward the Materials and Supplies fee of $199. This fee is used to purchase new supplies & equipment for the children throughout the year.   After March 2nd, we will begin filling spaces with children on our waiting list.  New applications will also be accepted if space permits.  Space is limited in every class.  If your child will not be attending for the 2012-2013 school year, the Reservation Forfeiture form should be returned by 2/15. We look forward to celebrating our 35th year with you and your family. 

Emergency Information: Please make sure your Emergancy Information is always up to date.  If any of your contacts have changed, just inform Jenni Rice or Jennifer Nann and they will update your child’s records.

Sign In & Out Sheets: Please remember to sign your child in and out everyday.  The Department of Social Services (DSS) will levee fines to those who do not.  It is very simple to do.  Just make sure to use your full legal signature.
