McKenzie Little Lions - May 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

Flex Schedules are needed for May, please email them or hand them in ASAP

Parents, your opinion is important to us.  Please complete the annual parent survey on the Little Lions website, http://www.littlelionswaldorf.ca/parent-survey thank you in advance.

May 1st is our May Day Celebration, we will be singing and dancing and having a special snack to celebrate the beginning of the month.  Also, May 1st is the McKenzie School Pro-Grant night.  This event will be from 5:30-7:30.  There will be pizza at 5:30, and then activities for the children from 6-7.  At 7 p.m. a guest speaker will be talking about ‘Mindful practices’ and child care will be available.

May 2nd is the Parents night at the Finlandia with speaker, Kim John Payne 7:00-9:00pm topic of discussion is, “Soothing Anxiety & Fear in Childhood and Teen Years.” Childcare is provided, please contact in advance if you wish for care.  All Parents and guardians are welcome to attend.

May 3rd is a PA Day; the school is closed but the daycare is open.

May 20th, Monday is Victoria Day, there is no school and the Daycare is closed.

Summer Contracts / Schedules need to be filled out and signed as soon as possible please.   We need to schedule vacation time for staff and allow for scheduling.

Please remember about snow/ice closures, if the school is closed, the daycare is closed.  It is still possible. The radio stations will announce school closures and they are also posted on the Lakehead board transportation website, http://www.ststb.ca/ by 7:00am.  So please be sure to listen in on days the weather may be hazardous.

Something to consider when sending your child to daycare after being unwell; “The 48 hour rule.”  For the health of the other children and their educators, please keep your child at home after episodes of vomiting, diarrhea, or even a fever!  (We had many illnesses in the month of April.)  Thank you

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.

We ask that parents remember to please refrain from bringing food or toys to daycare.  This often leads to conflict.  Thank you!

 Happy Birthday to; Hayden on May 17th
