Lords and Ladies Newsletter East: January 2016

December Happenings

The Lords and Ladies learned a lot during the month of December. The Lords and Ladies have participated in multiple sensory, fine motor, and gross motor activities.  Lastly, the children have continued focusing on letter and number recognition via activities. We are looking forward to a new year filled with learning and excitement.  We hope you enjoyed your time with your families this past holiday season!

Nutcracker Performance

Thank you for all of your support regarding our most recent Nutcracker production.  Thank you for taking time to ensure your child had everything needed for this special annual event.  After weeks of practicing their dances, the children had become quite excited to perform for their families and friends.  We are all so proud of the children’s hard work! Please be sure to check your child’s parent folder for keepsake artwork from the event.

Holiday Party

The Lords and Ladies enjoyed their holiday party this past month.  Having opportunities to share these special times with friends proves to be an important part of the children’s growth as we practice social skills and learn about the different holiday traditions.  Thank you so much for contributing to these special events for your children and their friends!


We go outside each and every day (if not too cold) so please make sure you are sending your child to school in a heavy coat, gloves and hat when the weather is chilly. As always please make sure your child has plenty of spare clothes in their cubby for accidents. The Academy is running low on extra spare clothes. If you have any you would like to donate we would greatly appreciate.

Important Dates

The Academy will be closed Friday, January 1st, in observance of the New Year as well as Martin Luther King, Junior’s birthday on Monday, January 18th, and Presidents Day Monday, February 15th for teacher training and work days.  We hope you enjoy the additional time with your families.
