Love is in the Air – February 2024 Newsletter

by | Feb 5, 2024 | Newsletters

February is the perfect time to express to those around us how much they mean to us. We talk to the students about how love can be shown in many different ways. Love is helping a sad friend to feel better. Love is telling someone thank you.  Love is spending time with your family. We remind the children that they are loved by so many people and that God loves them too!

February is also the time that we talk about showing love to our bodies by taking care of them.  We discuss healthy bodies, healthy teeth, healthy foods, and being active to help our bodies grow strong.

Our classrooms are full of craft supplies as we are busy making valentines for our families, our friends, and for local nursing homes…Once again reminding them that LOVE can be shown in so many ways!

 

2024-2025 Registration

Registration is now 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.

 

Valentine’s Day Party

We will have Valentine’s Day parties in our classrooms on Wednesday, February 14th. Students will be exchanging valentines with their classmates. Whether you are making your own valentines or purchasing at the store, preparing them with your child can be a fun activity to do together. It’s a perfect time for them to practice writing their names (even if they can only write the first letter). There is no need to address valentines to each friend in the class (please leave that part blank). Please watch for more information from your classroom teacher on the number of valentines your child should prepare.

 

Outdoor Play

Even though it is a cold time of year, we still try to find those days when we can head outside for our recess time. The kids love the chance to get some fresh air during the long months that typically keep us cooped up inside. We won’t go out if the temperature is below 25 degrees, it is raining, or the play area is icy. Please remember to send a coat, hat, and mittens with your child each day. Boots are also great for our wet and snowy playground, but they tend to get hot and heavy for the students to wear for the entire school day. For your convenience, you may leave a pair of tennis shoes at school for your child to use when inside the building or just send shoes daily in their backpacks.

 

Inclement Weather

Just a reminder that if school is going to be closed due to inclement weather, we will send a class Remind message, post on the class private and school Facebook pages, and send an email to let you know that we will be closing. We try to make the decision as early as possible and take guidance from our neighborhood school districts that are also making that tough decision.

 

Conferences

Conferences will be scheduled during the week of February 20th for our students in the Bunnies and Bees classes. Communication will be coming soon from your teachers to sign up for a time.

 

Tax Receipts

All tax receipts have been distributed to those families that have requested one. If you are still in need of a tax receipt for 2023, please send an email to the director at northamptonchristianpreschool@gmail.com.

 

I LOVE YOU Tea

It’s that time of year that we remind you to SAVE THE DATE! Our I Love You Teas will take place as listed below. Each student is able to 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. Afternoon students will come earlier in the day on their tea date and participate with the group. The tea will take place towards the end of the morning session similar to our Thanksgiving Feast day. More details to come in March.

Bees – Tuesday, April 16th

Bunnies – Wednesday, April 17th

Birds – Thursday, April 18th

 

Jim Gill Concert

We are so pleased to announce that Jim Gill will be returning to NCP on Friday, April 12th at 6 p.m. for a fun concert. Please check him out here to see how much fun this family friendly event is!

 

Tuition Reminder

Please remember that tuition is due on the 15th of each month. We only have three payments remaining for this school year on 2/15, 3/15, and 4/15. Please reach out to the director if you have any questions.

 

 

Happy Valentine’s Day from your NCP Staff!
