McKenzie Little Lions - September 2019

“Where is the book in which the teacher can read about what teaching is?

The children themselves are this book. 

We should not learn to teach out of any book other than the

One lying open before us and

consisting of the children themselves.”

Rudolf Steiner

 Welcome back to those that have been off for the summer, we are excited to have our school friends and new friends joining us. We hope everyone had a wonderful summer holiday.

 Flex Schedules are needed for September, please email them or hand them in ASAP mckenzie@littlelionswaldorf.ca

Monday September 2nd is Labour Day, the Daycare is closed.

 Wednesday September 4th, first day of school for most, except those just starting JK who may be doing their gentle start.  Friday September 27th PA day, the daycare is open.

Tuesday September 17th Annual Little Lions Harvest Fair @ Tapiola @ 5:30, rain date is Wednesday September 19th.  More details to follow.

 Please remember about school closures, if the school is closed, the daycare is closed.  Radio stations will announce school closures and they are also posted on the Lakehead board transportation website, http://www.ststb.ca/ by 7:00am.  Reminder that McKenzie has been remaining open for most of the rural closure days; however there is still the chance that if the roads are extremely bad the school could be closed.

Something to consider when sending your child to daycare after being unwell; “The 48 hour rule.” for the sake of other children and their educators, please keep your child at home after episodes of vomiting, diarrhea, or even a fever!!          Thank you so much.

 A reminder to parents that if you have a child away from school, please call the daycare and let us know as well 683-5624. This is important for the safety of the children as well as for staffing purposes.

 As fall approaches, please be sure to include extra layers for your children for outdoor play, a hat and little gloves possibly.  An extra outfit is always handy to have in their cubby in case of messy play or eating.

Toddler and Preschool families, if you have an updated family picture, we would love to have a copy to display in our room.  The children love showing off their families.

Happy Birthday to; Kaija on September 6th
