March 2018 Newsletter

“Winter tries to linger but here and there, you find signs of Spring. Plant your seeds early and you’ll grow much in your garden!”

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Thank you, for your contributions, to making this a great program for the Elementary After School Care Kids! Your feedback is much appreciated!

For the month of March we’ll be focusing on “Community Helpers” and what they do to make our community run every day. 

Last month, we had the children choose which virtues they wanted to read and they quite enjoyed doing that! So for this month, we’ll continue on this path and finish reading the last of the chosen virtue cards.

On March 9th we have our first field trip and we’ll be going to Save-On-Foods for a Nutrition Tour. The goal is to learn about healthy foods and put what we have learnt, towards cooking here at After School Care. If your child is enrolled for that day, you will get a permission slip to fill-out and it will be from 3:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. Please hand in the permission forms, no later than March 7th. Thank you. If you have any questions or concerns, or ideas please feel free to share them.

Please remember to sign-out your child at the end of the day( located near the events board) and to send them with a healthy snack that is peanut/treenut free. With the ever-changing weather, please wear appropriate clothing for the elements because we play outside rain or shine for sixty minutes. On occasion, we do get the use of the Vedder Elementary School gymnasium.

Courtesy of Vedder Elementary School, and the Librarian Mrs. Chand, we have been able to use the library to sign-out books! Being able to do this, the children have greatly benefited from choosing their own books, that interest them and it is with this, that we hope, that it opens the door to life-long reading!
