Academy 4 Kids

Yearly Registration Fee:  Just a reminder that the yearly registration fee is being added to all accounts for the September invoices.  ($75 per child or $110 per family)

New Registration Packets: This has been quite a process, and we are STILL trying to get them all returned.  We appreciate you taking the time to fill them out and return them as promptly as possible.  The information on all the packets is still the same but the layout is slightly different. The State is requiring that we update records for each child.  If you lost yours please let us know so we can get you another one.  THANK YOU!  Please see Terri with any questions.

Premium Time:  If your child attends Academy 4 Kids longer than 9 hours per day you will see 5% added to your monthly invoice.  

Schedules:  PLEASE stick to your schedules.  Our classrooms are full and busy and we staff according to the schedules you have given us so it is so helpful when you stick to the plan.  We very much appreciate it.  If you child will not attend please call us by 9am.  

Music Together:  There is a free class on Friday, September 15th at 9:15 and 10:15am at New Seasons Market.  Music Together is a group class in music and movement for kids ages zero to five and the adults who love them.  Paul is starting this business here locally and we are trying to support him in his new adventure.  For more information on his program call him at 206-326-0682.  Tell him you got the information from us so he knows we are trying to support him in this new, local business.  

Soccer Shots:  New season begins this Friday, September 15.  It’s not too late to register!  Class is every Monday from 9:45-10:20am held here on site.  

Classroom News

Infants:  I am very excited to start a new school year with you and your child. Our focus this month will be back to school. Some of our art will include apples, buses, and pencils. Happy birthday to Kai and Faith who will turn one this month!

Toddlers: Welcome back to school! We hope you enjoyed your summer and long holiday weekend! We’re so excited to have everyone back for the new school year! During September we will be focusing on friendships and getting back to school. Our calendar is posted outside our door with everything that we have planned for the month.

Mini-Preschool: September is time for changes. The new school year is starting this month so we will be focusing on Back to School, All About Me, feelings, fall season. We will be learning letters A-D, numbers 1-4, colors, and shapes. Fall is a great time to send in a light jacket for cool fall mornings. Please label all jackets so we know what jacket belongs to who. Thank you.

Preschool: Hello all and welcome to preschool!! For the month of September we will be discussing classroom rules, All About Me and all things back to school. We will also be discussing the letters Aa and Bb and numbers 1 and 2 as well as different colors and shapes. As a reminder, please bring back your child’s All About Me forms that were in your welcome packet! Again, we welcome you to preschool and let’s have a fabulous school year!

Pre-Kindergarten: For the month of September we will be doing some fun activities to get to know each other. We will begin our ABC’s and 123’s. We will begin to trace and write our names and observe fall. There will be some projects that will go home and then come back to school. I like to refer to them as family projects. We are going to have a great year!

Kindergarten: Welcome to Kindergarten! In our first month back to school we will be learning classroom rules and routines, celebrating who we are, talking about how to be a kind friend, and so much more! Please make sure to read through your welcome packet, turn in your questionnaire, and take home your child’s weekly folder every Friday and return it every Monday. Thank you! We are so excited for a wonderful school year!

School Age: We can’t believe that summer is over and our kiddos are heading back to school already. This summer was so much fun from projects to baking and field trips. We will miss having them here all day. Welcome back to the families that took the summer off and welcome to the new first grade families coming from the Kindergarten room. We hope you have a great start to the school year!
