NCP – May 2024

by | May 1, 2024 | Newsletters

As we enter into the final weeks of the 2023-2024 school year, we are all in disbelief that the end is so near. We still have so many fun things to do as we finish the year. Our butterfly release, Zoo Mobile visit, library lady and lots of outdoor activities are still ahead and we will close out with a celebration on the last day. Thank you for sharing your children with us. It has been a pleasure watching them learn and grow. We hope that you have a wonderful summer with lots of sunshine and fun!

Butterflies!

In mid April, each classroom received a jar of caterpillars. We patiently waited for them to grow and form their chrysalises and hopefully we will now have butterflies soon. This is such a fun activity for kids as they learn about the life cycle of animals. The best part is the day we release them and watch them fly away!

 

Akron Zoo Mobile

On Wednesday, May 15th, the Akron Zoo will be bringing a few animals to share with us. We have programs scheduled for the morning and afternoon classes. This educational event allows students to get up close to and learn some interesting facts about our animal visitors!

 

2024-2025 Registration

Registration is open for the fall and our classes are filling up quickly! 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 a 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.

April Events

Thank you for joining us in April for the Jim Gill Concert and the I Love You Teas. These are some of our favorite events and we love having you in the building!

 

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 from our Bunnies and Bees classes at 11:10 for morning students and 2:40 for all day and afternoon students. All students will be a part of the clap out and then released to their parent/caregiver.

After the 11:10 morning clap out, extended day students will return to class. All morning only students (Birds, Bunnies and Bees) and their families will be celebrated with a special ice cream and popsicle party immediately following the clap out in the green space near the parking lot. If you are an afternoon or extended day student, you will be celebrated at 2:40 followed by your party. It is a great time to connect to make plans for summer play dates and 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. Families are invited to join and celebrate at your child’s regular release time.

 

Tuition Reminder

Final tuition payments were received in April. If you have an outstanding balance, you should have received an invoice with the details. If you are returning in the fall, your next payment will be due on June 15th and then again starting in September through April. Please reach out with any questions.

Fall 2024-2025

If you will be joining us in the fall, please watch for an email this month with forms, tuition information and next steps for the 2024-2025 school year. Our first day is Tuesday, September 2nd. It will be here before you know if!

 

 

We have been blessed by all of you this school year. We are so happy that God placed you in our path and will continue to pray for good health, safe travels, and lots of love during this summer break.
