FIRST DISCUSSION TOPICS
We are starting off the year with discussions pertaining to the general developmental journey of our children at the various ages. Discussion sheets will be sent through Konstella by each Teacher. Please do take a look over the weekend and share with your partner in order to enrich the discussion. We will discuss both the joys and challenges in areas of physical, emotional, social and cognitive development at each stage. Happy reading!
FIRST SCHOLASTIC BOOK ORDER OF THE YEAR DUE SEPTEMBER 28
Here’s how it works:
SIGN UP at www.Scholastic.com/bookclubs. Register for your own username and password on the “parent” page. When prompted, enter the one-time Class Activation Code (GKC39) so that your order is sent to Little Wonders.
SELECT the books you’d like to order from over 500 titles available online, for multiple ages... and take advantage of online-only specials and discounts.
DELIVERY will be made to the classroom within 2 weeks. Each order helps earn free books and teaching materials for Little Wonders, in addition to providing extra books for the Halloween Party and the Family Connections Book Drive. There is never any obligation to order, but who doesn’t love books?
MENDOCINO FARMS FUNDRAISER ON SEPTEMBER 24
Your Monday dinner plans this week can include supporting Little Wonders! Bring your friends, family, and classmates to our Fall Restaurant Fundraiser at Mendocino Farms 1060 Park Pl San Mateo (adjacent to Whole Foods). If it’s a nice evening, perhaps a picnic playdate at nearby Paddock Park could be in order for you and your new classmates! (Talk with your Class Liaison in person or via Konstella for even more ideas.)
*Please present the attached flyer in print or electronically so Little Wonders can get 20% back. The fundraiser applies to both dine-in and take-out orders between 5pm and 8pm on Monday, September 24, but the flyer is required!

SPACE STILL AVAILABLE IN FALL CLASSES - TELL YOUR FRIENDS!
Please continue to share your love for Little Wonders with your friends, families, and social networks. We are still looking for a few more families with children 18-36 months old to join the Wednesday Evening and Thursday PM classes. Interested parents can set up a preview by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Fall registration for continuing families is ongoing here. Families with children within the age ranges for open classes can sign up for a second class and get a 10% discount.
If you are a working parent that wants to help us share how wonderful Little Wonders is and are interested in writing a short blurb that we can share on the blog and social media, please email email@example.com.
Our wonderful Program Director, Mireille, wrote a lovely welcome message that was posted last week. Be sure to check it out! Remember to ‘like’ the Little Wonders Facebook page where we also share the blog posts so you never miss one!
TUITION LATE FEES
Please note that tuition invoices due August 1st will now include an additional $100 late fee. Going forward any tuition invoice that is not paid within 30 days of receipt, or due date (whichever is later), also incurs a $100 late fee. We appreciate your understanding and your prompt payment.
Are you getting more Konstella messages in your mailbox than you bargained for? You can always head over to “Account Settings” (click on your name/face in the upper left corner on the web, or the gear in the upper left corner on the app), click on “Notifications,” and change the frequency of your notifications. FYI, the options for “konstella.com/amazon Reminders,” “Education Nights,” and “Important Konstella Announcements” are NOT communications sent by Little Wonders.
Did you know that you can sync the Little Wonders Events calendar to your Apple, Outlook, iCal, or Google Calendar? Simply click on the Konstella “Calendar” and choose “Sync to My Calendar.” Never miss an event again!
