NEW STATE MANDATED REGULATION!
Calling all parents, the state now mandates parents must contact the school office if their child is absence. This is a new mandated regulation. Please notify the office no later than 9:30 the morning of their absence.
TECH FREE TUESDAY CHALLENGE
How much time should a child spend in front of any screen is a question being asked not just by worried parents but by psychologists, health organizations and even governments. Robin’s Nest would like to help our families find some balance. Watch for more information coming homing with your child. Are you up for the challenge???
SPRING BASKET FUNDRAISER
PAC is sponsoring a basket fundraiser. Room mothers from every class will make a basket for the silent auction from the items donated by the parents. The room mothers have already sent out a letter with your class theme and important information about the fundraiser. All baskets are due the week of April 9th. The silent auction begins on April 10th and ends on April 13th at 9:30 a.m. Winners of each basket may pick them up on Thursday, April 13th. All proceeds will benefit classroom and school improvements.
Parent/Teacher conferences are scheduled for April 26th and 27th. This is a great opportunity to discuss your child’s progress and ask any questions or concerns you may have. Summer activities will be shared to help support their growth and prepare for the upcoming school year. Conferences are scheduled at 15 minutes intervals. Childcare will be provided 5 minutes before your scheduled conference. We ask that you pick up your child as soon as your conference has ended to make room for others coming in. Look for the sign-up sheet posted outside your child’s classroom!
The 4’s classes will be participating in a graduation celebration on Friday, May 18, at 11:00 a.m. The graduation celebration will take place in the Palm Harbor United Methodist Church sanctuary. Please watch for your special invitation. Remember that your VPK child must attend school on May 18th in order to be listed with the state of Florida as having completed the Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten program.
PACKING SCHOOL LUNCHES
Important reminder! When packing your child’s deliciously nutritious lunch for school, please make sure to include an ice pack to keep it cool. The school is unable to refrigerate your child’s lunch so please keep it safe for them by including a pre-frozen ice pack.
Please remember to hold your child’s hand when walking to and from the parking lot. Also make sure your child avoids the bushes and climbing or jumping on the outdoor bins. These areas are not safe play spaces.
