November 2017

Hi, Everyone. Thank you all for coming to the Fall Festival last week! We had a wonderful time celebrating with you. We are also grateful for your many warm hugs and words of support over the last two weeks. Thank you all for being a part of FELCDC and for trusting us with your children.

During this interim period, my hours will be 8:30-5:30 every day. Alexis (Explorer Assistant) will continue to open the school M-Th, and Meghan will continue to open the school on Fridays. Meghan will also be in the office most days beginning at 10 a.m.

LaQuetha Ford

Interim Director

Feast Info:  Please mark your calendars for our annual Thanksgiving Feast on Friday, November 17th. RSVP sheets will be on the classroom sign in clipboards. We will begin eating at 11:45. Please allow extra time for parking. Our little lot fills  up fast, and with the students parking in the neighborhood during the day, it can be challenging to find a spot. When you arrive, please come directly to the Fellowship Hall. If you arrive by 11:30, we would love to have some extra help getting the food out. If you are willing to help, come to the window of the kitchen and let us know. Getting all that food out in a 15-minute window is quite a challenge! Make sure to let your child’s teacher know if you are planning to take him/her home after the meal. We will say goodbye in the Fellowship Hall, not the classroom. If you are going back to work, be prepared for some tears. It is big fun to have mom or dad come to lunch, but it’s hard to have to say goodbye again. You can help by talking to your child about the plan beforehand.  

Thank you so much to Jennifer for doing this for us again!

Candy:  Do you have leftover Halloween candy that you would like to get rid of? We’ll take it! Our teachers love sweet treats and are always happy to take them off your hands.

Please pay your supply fee if you haven’t already done so!  The $125 fall supply fee was due at the end of October. Please make sure that you have paid. The next installment will be charged in February.

Birthdays:

Lauren Eichhorn, Sunbeam lead teacher has a birthday on November 24th.
