SNOW DAY 3/14/17

Do you want to build a snow fort??  You’ll have your chance with this blizzard!

All Friends Together programs will be cancelled on Tuesday, March 14. Parent-Teacher conferences will be rescheduled. Please take care and be safe!

9 AM Opening on Friday 2/10

All Friends Together programs will open at 9 AM on Friday, Feb 10.

This means that Extended Day programs, which normally open starting at 7 AM, will open at 9.  Preschool classes with a normal start time of 9 AM, will start on time.  If you need to drop your child off late due to the delayed opening at the other Port Washington schools, that is fine.  Please stay safe on the roads! 

SNOW DAY 2/9/17

The Port Washington School District has announced that all schools will be closed on Thursday, February 9th, due to predicted heavy snow and hazardous road conditions.

If school is delayed on Friday, we will post notices here. Have fun making a snow man!

Dentist Visit Today

Today Dr. Chin, DDS from Tiny Sparkles Pediatric Dentistry visited our school. The children learned all about how to care for their teeth, which foods make their teeth strong and what happens when they go to the dentist for the first time. They watched a brief video and really enjoyed their time with Dr. Chin! They will all be bringing a dental “goodie bag” home as well.

Halloween Parade!

Halloween Kids

The Halloween Parade will take place tomorrow, Thursday the 27th – rain or shine. We plan to parade out into the parking lot, but will make a day-of decision to move inside if it’s too cold or wet.

Parents: drop off your children with their costume in a labeled bag (leave special accessories at home). Please keep the parking lot clear and park on an adjacent street.

Teachers will dress the children, and the 3s and 4s will parade at 9:30 AM sharp!  Be ready with your camera 🙂
