Welcome!
We are excited to start another year with all of our new and returning families! By now you should have received a phone call or had a home visit with your child's advisor. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Erin, Erin.Solomon@journeysschool.org, Emmy, Emmy.Watsabaugh@journeysschool.org, Paige, Paige.Fisher@journeysschool.org, or Christina, Christina.Macy@journeysschool.org
 
Labels
We are asking that all your child’s belongings are labeled at the start of school. This includes anything from socks to lunch containers. Labeling is an immense help for both the children and teachers in being able to distinguish what  belongs to each child. It can also help children take responsibility for their own belongings and making sure they get back into their cubbies. Parents have had positive feedback for using “namebubbles” labels. Here is a link to the website: http://www.namebubbles.com/Default.aspx. A permanent marker would also work well. Thank you in advance for labeling all of your child’s belongings.

Lunch
Please remember to pack your child’s lunch in a microwave friendly container if you would like their lunch to be heated up.  If your child’s lunch arrives at school in a metal container we will assume that it is ok to serve it cold.

Community Lunch
Every Friday we have community lunch with lunch provided. Please pack your child a lunch if they do not like what is being served or there are dietary restrictions.

We Will Be Contacting You…
Your child’s advisor will be contacting you in the next couple of weeks to check-in with you about your child’s transition to school.  This will also be a great opportunity to answer any questions you might have.

Sneakers
Please remember to pack your child sneakers everyday for exploring and adventuring outside. You are welcome to leave your child’s indoor shoes at school.

Save the Date

September 28th is pre-k parent night 5:30-7:30pm

Afterschool

Snacks
Every week a family will bring healthy, organic snacks to share with the class. We encourage fresh fruit and vegetables, cheese sticks, and other fresh foods. A schedule, along with a list of great examples of snacks can be found in your child’s folder at school. Reminders will be posted here (in Friday announcements) weekly.  Please let Emmy know if your family has a conflict with the week you are scheduled. 

We will provide snack for the first two weeks of school (week of August 30th and September 4th).
The Everett family is scheduled to bring in snack for the week of September 11th. Below is a reminder for upcoming weeks:

Thank you families for providing delicious fresh options for your children!
