Afterschool Afterthoughts For January 2018

Important dates:

Jan. 14: tuition for February due

Jan. 15: M.L.K. Jr. Day, no program

Jan.22: Teacher workday, no program

Notes:

I would like to introduce 2 new staff. Connor Girard is a current America Reads tutor in 6th grade, and an Amherst College senior. He is also a goalie on their hockey team.

Kevin Scanlon is a junior at UMass, majoring in Communications. We are excited about both of them joining our team!

Many of you have outstanding bills. Please pay your balance as soon as possible. I will be giving out hard copies of the bills in January to those families who have chosen to only receive email reminders regarding their bills. This bill can be used as a receipt for your taxes. The tax ID number is on the top of every bill.

If it’s January, it’s drama time! Our first play, geared towards the younger students, is loosely based on the children’s book, “If You Give A Mouse A Cookie” by Laura Joffe Numeroff. The second play, for the older students, is in the process of being written and it will have characters from “Alice in Wonderland”.

We have had a lot of fun with our “Who Am I?” posting. Every week I choose a new staff person that the kids need to identify by using the daily clues. The answer gets more and more obvious as the week progresses. Can anyone guess who was in a tent in Utah when a tornado swept through?

It’s cold outside! Sign your child up for Afterschool and they can have a grand time playing inside with all of their friends! Slots are still available.
