Happy Kits for Children's Mercy

We are collecting items to create Happy Kits for Children’s Mercy Hospital. The kits are used by the staff to help patients and families feel welcome and happy during their stay at the hospital. We are going to focus on children aged 2-6 years. Below is a list of items that are required for each bag. Just bring the items to your child’s classroom and we will make sure that they are bagged up and labeled correctly. We will collect the kits during the Week of the Young Child April 8-12th.

*1 sheet of boy or girl themed stickers

*1 pack of Crayola brand crayons

*1 small new board book for ages 2-3 OR 1 small book for ages 4-6

*1 coloring book (age appropriate)

*1 Hot wheel car (optional)

 

Due to health and safety guidelines the items must meet certain guidelines so the items all must be brand new, non-toxic and latex free, odor free. They also must not promote violence or be connected to a religious holiday. Thank you for helping us brighten a child’s day!

Valentine Boxes

It’s hard to believe that Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! We will be doing a valentine exchange during our party and we are asking that you send in a box for your child to collect their valentines from their classmates. We encourage you to let your child’s creativity shine through as they create their box. We will display the boxes in the hallway the week of Valentine’s Day as the children love to walk through the hallways and see all of the different boxes! We are asking that all the boxes are brought in by Monday February 11th. Thank you!

Preschool - Drop Off/Pick Up

Just as a reminder:

Preschool drop off line starts at 8:35 - teachers are not available for drop off before this time - the pick up line starts at 11:30- if your child has not been picked up by 11:40 then a late fee will be added to your account.

Thank you!

Breakfast times

Just a reminder: Breakfast time is from 8:15-8:40. If you plan to drop your kids off after 8:40 please plan to have them eat at home before coming to school. This will help our teachers be able to move on with the daily schedule after this time frame as we have lots of fun and learning to do!

Thank you!

Keeping our kids Healthy

It seems like the yucky germ season is hitting us hard already this year so we wanted to give some reminders about our illness exclusion policy. Below you will find our form for exclusion and when your child may return to school if they are experiencing any symptoms. 

This is especially important as we do have a child in the building who is fighting cancer. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments and it is very important that we help to create a healthy environment in order to help keep her as healthy as possible as she walks this journey. We are also doing our part here by encouraging lots of hand washing and a strict cleaning regiment. 

If you do have a sick kiddo and need to drop off another child or you yourself are not feeling well, please call and we will do our very best to help you drop off or pick up your children so that you do not have to bring sick germs into the building. We really appreciate your help with this!
