January News

Hello Amazing Grace Families,

It’s cold outside — these are the days we are especially thankful for our bike room where we can run around and expend some or our joyful winter energy!

Winter Dressing:  Thank you to everyone for bringing in snow clothes for your children.  We are seeing great improvement in their daily winter dressing skills. This is a wonderful way to learn about sequencing: what is first, second, third, etc. and also to improve fine motor skills.  Please encourage your children to independently dress themselves at home too so that we are all consistent!

  • We will go out every day when it is above 20 outside counting wind chill.
  • Please make sure your child is wearing sneakers whenever they are inside at school,  Please change them out of their boots before they enter the classroom.
  • Here is a link to a helpful article from Miss Magda about winter dressing:  Winter Dressing

Illness:  It is the season for colds and flu.  As a brief reminder, children should not come to school if they have experienced any of the following in the past 24 hours:

  • flu symptoms
  • fever over 100 F
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • persistent harsh cough or runny nose with green mucus

Thanks everyone for helping us all to be healthy!

Enrollment for 2016-17:

  • We are pleased to be opening a third classroom next year!
  • Deadline is February 1 to ensure a spot for your returning child. 
  • Here is a link to the form, and there are copies at school 16-17 Application

Any questions?  Ask Ellie or Sandy (see below).  Thanks everyone!
