Happy Almost February Walnut Ridge Family!

 

February will be a busy month for our Preschoolers and I know you have been getting inundated with flyers and permission slips recently in your child’s folder. So here is a condensed list of the happenings in our school for your convenience.

 

A few calendar items…

  • February 1:  (This coming Friday) is the due date for two things:
    • 1) The WRAP Fundraiser — Cinnabon and Auntie Anne’s
      • This is a big fundraiser for WRAP. And WRAP has been able to help our school and community tremendously so please support them through this tasty fundraiser
    • 2) The Student Information Sheet for the upcoming NWAC trip
      • Click on the link above to go directly to the form. We will need to know your child’s shoe size and whether you will be attending our information session on February 6.
  • February 5: Our trip to the Warwick Price Chopper
    • Click on the link above for more information about this annual trip! It is a wonderful extension of our Tools of the Mind curriculum and our children always really enjoy it!
  • February 6: Q&A with NWAC 
    • As mentioned earlier, please be sure to RSVP to this event. This will be short (12:15pm – 12:45 pm) and held in our gym. Representatives from the National Winter Activity Center will be here to answer any and all of your questions about our upcoming (March 1) ski trip! If you are unable to make it, you can still submit your question on THIS FORM and I will create a F.A.Q. list on our website.
  • February 7: Our trip to Vernon Township High School
    • Click on the link above for more information. 
    • This will be our second annual trip to VTHS to learn about the HS CTE programs but more importantly to engage with our high school students and play with them in Tools of the Mind geared centers. It is a wonderful event!
  • February 13: Our Annual Valentine’s Day Ice Cream Social
    • Click on the link above for more information
    • AM Session will be from 11:15 -12:00 and PM Session will be from 2:30 – 3:15. Please RSVP to make signing into the building run smoothly! We are all looking forward to this fun family event!
  • February 1540 Developmental Assets
    • Click on the link above to access the flyer from Rebecca Dorney and the Vernon Coalition’s upcoming 40 Developmental Assets presentation series. Many of you attended the previous ones held at WR. These next three will be for WR, CM, RH, and LH parents and will be held at Cedar Mountain (Dates: 2/15, 3/15, and 5/17)
Looking Ahead…

A humble request…

 
Over the past few weeks some parents/grandparents/guardians have been chronically late in picking up their respective children. Please do your best to come on time for both arrival and pick up. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
