Operation Christmas Child
Every year our students participate in Operation Christmas Child. Our students collect items big enough to fit inside a box to ship to other children in third world countries who never received a gift. Our students also write friendship letters to let other children know that they someone cares for them. This time is a good time to show our students compassion and giving to others. They will assemble these boxes on November 17, 2016 (Prek2- please wear uniforms for media coverage) and deliver them by November 18, 2016 to the shipping center. We are asking parents to donate some of these items. It would be great if the students could select the items at the store to help them be a part of the process of giving. We will be choosing preschool age children 2-5 years old.
Toys: Include items that children will immediately embrace such as toy cars, yo-yos, jump ropes, balls, toys that light up and make noise (with extra batteries), etc.
School Supplies: pens, pencils and sharpeners, crayons, markers, notebooks, paper, solar calculators, coloring and picture books, etc.
Non-liquid Hygiene Items: toothbrushes, bar soap, combs, washcloths, etc.
Accessories: T-shirts, socks, hats, sunglasses, hair clips, jewelry, watches, flashlights (with extra batteries), etc.
Crafts: Make your own items such as hair bows, finger puppets, and friendship bracelets.
A Personal Note: The students will do this at school.

Medication and Sunscreen Policy Reminder
Just a friendly reminder that our medication policy states that we can only administer medicine that has been prescribed by a doctor. We cannot administer over the counter medication without a doctor’s note with explicit instructions on how to administer it.
Regarding sunscreen, if you would like your child’s teacher to apply sunscreen throughout the summer months, please complete the “Sunscreen Authorization Form” located in the front office. We ask that you bring your child in their own sunscreen and apply a coat of sunscreen before they come to school. All sunscreen will be applied after nap unless noted differently by a parent.
