Our first month of preschool has flown by and fall is in the air! October is shaping up to be a busy month here at Grassy Branch.
The “World of Color” photographer will be taking Fall pictures on Wednesday October 5 and Thursday October 6. Please make sure that your child’s teacher knows which day that you would prefer your child to be photographed. Monday October 10, is a Buncombe County teacher workday and we will be closed. I will be placing another Scholastic Book order in October. This order is due by Thursday October 13. Several of our firefighters will be presenting a fire safety program on Thursday October 20. They will also bring one of their fire trucks for us to see! On Wednesday October 26, our older classes (Lou Ann, Candice, and Erin’s classes) will be going on a field trip to Hickory Nut Gap Farm. Parents are encouraged to join us for a fun day at the farm! We will be sending home permission slips, and these forms and money should be turned in to your child’s teacher no later than Thursday October 20. On Monday October 31, we will have our fall classroom parties. Your child’s teacher will have a sign-up list if you would like to help with the party. The children are welcome to wear their Halloween costumes (nothing scary please) for their classroom parties.
If you have not turned in a copy of your child’s immunization record, please do so. We need to have every child’s record on file. Also, a reminder that tuition payments are due no later than the 15th of each month. If payment is not received by the 15th of the month, a late fee of 15.00 will be charged unless prior arrangements have been made. Please notify me if you need to make other arrangements so that you do not incur this late fee. If paying with cash, please make certain that you have the correct change as the preschool does not keep cash on hand.
We feel privileged that you have chosen to share your child with us. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.
