PARENT EDUCATION EVENINGS HAPPENING THROUGHOUT NOVEMBER
Each class will have their own Parent Education Evening. This year we’ll be focusing on the Meyers Briggs personality test and how it affects our relationships. This is the second of our co-op requirements for Little Wonders so attendance of at least one parent is required. Please contact your teacher for make up opportunities if you cannot attend your specific class date. There are other options.
KEEPSAKE FUNDRAISING IS HERE!
Have your child’s hand or foot preserved on a special keepsake, a great gift for you or your loved ones. All proceeds benefit Little Wonders. This is a great way to get a wonderful unique gift for a great price and help support the school as well.
Teacher Mireille will be available in each class to make these adorable keepsakes with your child, or you can arrange a time to meet her outside of class in order to include siblings not in class with you at Little Wonders. If you instead wish to have your child’s print placed on a tile for the Little Wonders “wall of fame,” that is also an option. Keepsakes make great gifts for grandparents, dads, aunts, uncles or any special person in your child’s life, or, keep your own keepsake to have your child’s prints preserved at this point in time. With the holidays approaching, you can get all your shopping done in one stop!
If interested, you must reserve your item(s) ahead of time by completing the Keepsake Order Form as soon as possible. A list of all items is available, along with the prices for each item, on the Order Form. Payment is accepted via check on the day you make your keepsake, or you can opt to have an invoice sent to you via PayPal or check after you complete it.
Keepsakes will be completed in class as follows *:
- Week of Nov 11-15 for all AM Classes and Baby Play
- Week of Nov 18-22 for all PM Classes and Wed. Evening
*Alternate dates outside of class time are available if you want to include a child from another class, and/or a sibling who is not currently enrolled at Little Wonders. Please email Mireille directly at email@example.com for a time after classes the week of November 18.
We can only accommodate those who have reserved an item and space, as we have a limited number of keepsake items available. If you have any questions, please contact the Keepsake Coordinator, Jen Seif, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
