Parent Newsletter

April 2024

by | Apr 4, 2024 | Newsletters

Once spring break comes and goes, we know that there isn’t much time left in the school year. It is bittersweet as we see our little friends growing and getting ready for their next step. Some will change classrooms and others will be moving on to Kindergarten. We love to see the growth, but we will miss their smiling faces when we return in the fall.

Our year is winding down way too fast. We only have a few weeks left, but lots of fun activities are still ahead. Please find out some of these throughout this newsletter. We are especially looking forward to our teas in a couple of weeks.

We are praying for warm weather so that we can spend extra time outside for class lessons, art, and hikes around the church. If your child requires sunscreen, please apply prior to coming to school each day.

 

Jim Gill Concert

Our Jim Gill concert is just over a week away on Friday, April 12th at 6 p.m. It is a great free event for families to come and enjoy together. If you have any questions, please reach out. We hope to see you there! Download the informational flyer.

 

I LOVE YOU Teas

We can’t wait to see you for our classroom I Love You Teas. Formal invitations have been going home this week. Each student may invite one special adult to participate with them. The tea is a fun time of food, a craft, and one-on-one time with your child. The tea will take place at 10:30 a.m. Afternoon only students will come to school early that day and stay through the afternoon.

Bees – Tuesday, April 16th at 10:30 a.m.

Bunnies – Wednesday, April 17th at 10:30 a.m.

Birds – Thursday, April 18th at 10:30 a.m.

 

2024-2025 Registration

Registration is open for the fall. Please be sure to send in your form if you are interested in reserving a space for your child to attend NCP next school year. If you are current family, the registration fee is waived. If you are sill in need of a registration form or you would like to share with a friend, please click here to find it on our website.

 

Late Arrival

If you arrive at school after the usual drop off times, please text or call the NCP phone number at (330) 203-3575 for a staff member to meet you and your child at the door to bring them to the preschool wing. Remind and Facebook are great for messages before regular drop off hours, but teachers are engaged with students once they enter the classroom and may miss the message that you have arrived.

 

Fire Department Safety Talks

We were lucky to have a visit from the Cuyahoga Falls Fire Department today. We love to have the fire fighters talk to the children about being safe. They demonstrated their equipment and truck for both the morning and afternoon classes in a fun and safe environment so that the children may feel comfortable in an emergency situation.

 

End of Year Celebration

On the last day of preschool, we will celebrate all of our students and families with a special party. We will have a clap out for those heading to Kindergarten at 11:10 for morning students and 2:40 for all day and afternoon students.  After each clap out, all students (Birds, Bunnies and Bees) and their families will be celebrated with a special ice cream and popsicle party. It is a time to connect to make plans for summer play dates and a time to say good bye to those moving on next year.  Please plan to attend this fun event on May 16th at 11:10 or 2:40 depending on your pickup time.

 

Butterflies!

Our shipment of caterpillars will be arriving mid-April. Each classroom will have their own container that they will watch as they transform into butterflies. We will talk about life cycles and end with a butterfly release.

 

Tuition Reminder

Please remember that tuition is due on the 15th of each month. April 15th is the due date of the final tuition payment for the year. Families will receive an invoice after this date for any outstanding balances they may have. Please reach out with any questions.
