December 2015 Newsletter
If the cold weather would ever decide that it is here to stay, it will be important for your child to dress appropriately so that he or she can participate in outdoor play. The classes will go outside if the temperature is above 32 degrees and weather permits. This becomes challenging for your child to remember the additional articles of clothing. Please discuss with your child colors, etc. of their clothing so that they may readily identify their things. All items should be labeled so that we can help your child find what belongs to them. We often have duplicate articles so labeling is especially important. You may also want to change your child’s extra set of clothing that you provided at the beginning of the year.
If it becomes necessary to close school because of winter weather, it will be on radio stations: WTVN (610 AM), WSNY (94.7 FM), WNCI (97.9), and WCOL (92.3 FM). Montessori classes will close when Dublin City Schools close, however we make every effort to keep the Extended Care program open. DMA will be open regular hours even if Dublin City Schools is on a delay. You may call the school if you are in doubt, as the status of the school will be on the voicemail.
The Tradition Continues
One tradition that we have had for many years is a food collection for St. Stephen’s Community House. The need this year is more dire than ever with empty shelves in many food pantries around the United States. With our support, St. Stephen’s offers hope and encouragement to many families during the holiday season. They are truly grateful for our donations. Beginning December 1st through December 16th, your child can bring in any canned goods or unopened non-perishable food. This is a wonderful way to show the children how their individual efforts can come together and affect so many! Requested food items include, but is not limited to: rice, pasta, tuna, cereals, dry baby cereal, formula, spaghetti sauce, soups, peanut butter & jelly, baby food, tuna, canned beans, canned vegetables, cake mixes, frosting, juice, fruit snacks, and macaroni & cheese dinners. Gift cards to local grocers are always welcomed . Collection ends December 15th.
We ask that all cell phones be turned off when entering our building. It can be distracting to others as they are observing their child. If you do need to use your cell phone while at our location, feel free to step into an empty room or outside.
