You’re invited to sign up for the November 13th half day session! It runs from 11:30a.m. (which is when school let’s out for the half day) until the usual end of the school day, 2:50p.m. At 2:50 p.m. our regular AfterSchool classes kick in. So if your child has regularly been enrolled in a Thursday AfterSchool class they can stay on Thursday until 5p.m. (for regular pick up) or 5:50p.m.(if s/he is officially registered for AfterHour). The cost is $35 per child per session.

I attended an amazing workshop at Teachers College last week with a focus on Supporting a Childs’s Reading and Writing. It takes all of us Working Together. There were some very useful tips on Helping Your Child Spell Well, Resistance to Reading and Writing…, and Phonics. If you are interested in details, feel free to stop by and see me or find me in the yard. I will continue to share opportunities for parent workshops as they become available.
