Jester Holiday Party

The Jester Holiday party will be held on Monday, December 23rd we will also have a Pajama Day! Please look for a sign up sheet on the door regarding bringing holiday treats.  More information will come regarding this party.

Winter is Here!

Please check winter clothes in your child’s cubby to make sure the children have appropriate spare clothes. It is very important that names be written on articles of clothing and coats.

Potty Training

Many of the Jesters are working hard at potty training.  It is important to encourage this at home, however it is not beneficial to force this on the child.  To assist your child in learning this skill you can work with them on independently dressing and pulling clothes on or off.  You can also practice sitting on the toilet, flushing, and using toilet paper when appropriate.  Please continue to monitor your child’s cubby to check for soiled clothes or to replenish any spare clothing.

Happy Holidays!
