The Joys of a New School Year

Administrator's Notes

Welcome to all of our new and returning students! Summer camp was a great success! The children had a lot of fun with all the activities we did over the summer. The toddlers also thoroughly enjoyed being invited to join in some of the activities with the older ones. Many thanks to Mrs. Carmen Dorf and Ms. Michelle Barnes for all their hard work!

We have had a wonderful start to the new school year. The transition in the classrooms has been smooth and calm, thanks to prepared teachers and moms and dads!

Please invite your friends, neighbors and co-workers with little ones to visit us during our Open House the week of September 12-16th.

Remember: every referral you give that results in a new family registering with us, you will receive a Publix gift card for $100 and the new family receives $25 off of their registration!

If you have any questions or concerns, please give me a call at 321-639-2266.

Reminders for Parents

Here are a few ‘beginning of school’ reminders to make everyone’s day go a little bit smoother:

  • The left lane of the car loop is for dropping off and picking up in front of the gate; the right lane is for pulling over and parking momentarily, to walk up and meet your child at the gate.
  • Check your email for important reminders and check your child’s Friday folder.

Mrs. Fraleigh's 3-6 Classroom

The children have had a great start to the new school year! We’ve learned the rules and routine of the classroom and reviewed basic lessons.

Please encourage your children to share with you what they are learning each day and to bring their work folders with them on Monday morning.

In September, we will focus on the changing of the seasons and the start of our fall gardens. If anyone would like to donate fall flowers or vegetable plants, we will give them a great home.

We will also be learning about the parts of the apple throughout the month of September.

The children are settling into their school routine very nicely. We’ve been busy! In August, our morning class learned about the calendar and practiced letter sounds. The children continue to progress with their Montessori lessons and are eager for new tasks.

In September, we will be planting in our gardens and learning about the parts of the apple. VPK students will be given the Period 1 Assessment, with an informational summary sent home upon completion.

We have had a wonderful start to the new school year. During September we will be learning about the parts of an apple, the life cycle of the apple, tasting apples, and making apple patterns. We will also be planting in our gardens and starting seeds.

The students will complete their first VPK assessment during the month. A letter will go home in the folder upon completion.

A few reminders: please label everything sent to school, be sure to send a change of clothes and no backpacks.
