The cold weather is here so please send a warm jacket to school every day, as we will still have outdoor playtime weather permitting. Be sure to replace your child's summer extra clothes with winter ones. Please label all clothing, especially jackets with your child's name. Please help the staff and Parents, aunts and uncles who pick up and don't know what their child's jacket looked like because they did not see them that morning. This will help pick up time go smoothly. We will be donating unclaimed clothing to charity.

*Please note that you can email us at any time to let us know if your child will be out for the day or late coming or just to ask a question. Even if it is after hours or the weekend We will get back to you by the next day. Our email address is.. tbpreschool@sbcglobal.net

Just a quick reminder...
we do not heat up food for lunch. Please send a napkin in their lunches every day and a plastic spoon or fork if they will need one. Please put your child's name on everything, clothes, toys, lunch box, Sippy cups, etc. Many of the children have the same items and it makes it easier for us to know what is whose. Thank you.
