NOVEMBER 2017

 

Happy Days will be closed along with Lacey Schools November 6th - 10th for the NJEA Convention, and Thursday November 23rd & Friday November 24th for Thanksgiving.

     Tuition for November is now due.  Please pay by the 5th of the month to avoid late charges.

 

November is a short but busy month.  Our theme for this month is “A Time To Be Thankful.”  Topics that will be discussed include: “Animals in Winter (hibernation & migration),” “The 5 Senses,” “Native Americans & Pilgrims,” “Vegetables & Turkeys,” and “Thanksgiving.”  Our shape of the month is the TRIANGLE and our color of the month is BROWN.  Our color days will be Wednesday the 29th and Thursday the 30th.  Please have your child wear something brown on those days.  Please remember to only allow your child to bring in toys from home on their scheduled Show-n-Tell day.  Also, please limit them to only one item.

Our letters for this month will be F and G.  The Preschool class will be focusing on the number 3 this month and our Pre-K class will be focusing on the numbers 5 and 6.  Our parent-teacher conferences will be held the week of November 13th.   The conference schedules will be hanging up by your child’s classroom in case you need to check your time.  Please be on time for your conference.  Coming too early or arriving too late will disrupt the flow of the schedule.  We are very excited and hope that this will be a great experience for both the teachers and the parents!!  Please remember that this is for parents only.

Our special visitor this month will be the Cattus Island County Park.  They will be visiting our school on Thursday November 16th and Friday November 17th to share some information with the students.  If you have a special hobby or interest you would like to share with our students, please let myself or Miss Caren know.  Our students look forward to and enjoy our special visitors! The children are loving our guest readers.  If you are interested in being a “Mystery Reader” please see Miss Caren to sign-up.


Flu shots are a state requirement for children attending a licensed child care or preschool program.  The deadline for vaccinations is December 31, 2017.  If a child does not receive his/her flu vaccination, the child will not be permitted to attend our program.  Please bring in proof of your child’s vaccination once he/she has gotten the flu shot.  In honor of Thanksgiving, we will also be doing a school-wide project that will help teach our children the value of sharing. All classes will read the story “Stone Soup.”  We will then ask each child to bring in at least one can of soup that we will donate to the Lacey Food Bank.  Feel free to send in more than one if you’re able to do so.  A notice with the details/deadline will be sent home shortly.  Thank you in advance for your participation with this project.

Our Thanksgiving celebrations for our Preschool class will take place on Tuesday the 21st and Wednesday the 22th.  Our Pre-K class will have their celebration on Wednesday the 22nd (AM & PM).  Sign-up sheets for party items will be posted soon.  Remember, we go out on the playground every day (weather permitting), so please make sure you dress your child appropriately for the weather.  This might also be a good time to make sure the extra clothes in their backpacks is appropriate for the changing weather.  Also, please remember to label everything that comes to school with your child, especially sippy cups.  Our reading incentive program is going great!  I am giving out a lot of pizza coupons.  I am so happy to see that the students are enjoying this program!  Please remember to check out our Facebook page often.  Important events/activities and reminders will be on there as well as pictures.  Please remember we follow the Lacey school calendar for closings only.  We do not have half days at Happy Days.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

 

 

                                               Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
