October 2017 Newsletter

October Parties

In October we celebrate fall with a Harvest Costume Party on Tuesday, October 24th. There will be games and snacks and the children can wear their Halloween Costumes. There will be a sign up sheet in the hall so parents can sign up to bring in a healthy party snack. Check out Pinterest for great healthy Halloween snack ideas.

They will have a second chance to wear their costumes on Tuesday, October 31st when we all walk to the East Lyme Town Hall to go Trick or Treating in their lobby. Parents are, as always, welcome to join us and help chaperone the event.

Scholastic Books

Please find attached to this newsletter the scholastic orders forms for the month of October. Each month You will receive these forms accompanying your newsletter. The due date will be the 15th of each month, Orders usually take less than a week to arrive. You can also order on line (Our School code is HL994.)

Scholastic Books are a very convenient and inexpensive way to share reading with your child. I know my girls had lots of Scholastic Books in their bookcase and so does my grandson. They also earn points for the center so NCCCC can earn free books with your purchase.

New Teacher

We have a new Teacher Aide in the afternoons. Her name is Jalyn Scruggs. She and her brother AJ used to attend NCCCC as children. She is currently attending Mitchell College and lives with her family in Mystic. I think you will love her energy and vivacious spirit!

Volunteers needed

We are seeking parent volunteers to serve as room parents and as members of our parent advisory committee .

Room parents help the teachers with special classroom events. If you are interested in becoming involved with your child’s class please contact the classroom teachers.

We also are in need of parents who would like to serve on the Parent Advisory Committee to help advise us of what we should do for fund raisers and also how to resolve any problems brought to light by the Family Surveys. If you are interested in serving on this committee please contact the director.

Please remember to give documentation of your child’s

Flu Vaccine

to our nurse. They are due no later than December 31st. I am sorry to say your child will be excluded if they do not have a vaccine by that date as per State Licensing. Thank you!
