Academy 4 Kids Monthly Newsletter

Payments to Academy 4 Kids:  When make a payment to us, please be sure to include your child's first and last name on the memo portion of your check or money order.  If leaving cash, please make sure your child's name is attached to the cash with a sticky note or in an envelope marked accordingly. We actually have several families with the same last name so this will ensure we are applying the correct payments to the correct accounts.  Thank you!

Safety Concern:  It is imperative that children NOT know your door code to enter our building.  If your code has been compromised, please let Terri know so she can assign you a new one.  Thanks!

Summer Camp:  Our summer camp is the only option for your 1st-5th grade child.  If you have not signed up for it yet, please speak with us immediately.  At this point, we will need to see if we have room for your child if you are still needing care as we did open up spaces to non-enrolled students on April 26.

Accounting Charges:  It has always been Academy 4 Kids policy to charge $25 for any additional documents asked for beyond the receipts you receive for payments.  This charge has not be used very often, however, this was the first year that we had many, many, many families that needed us to fill out child care expense forms and provide statements to their accountants.  From here on out, the $25 charge will be applied for anything you need beyond a normal receipt.

Extra Clothes:  Please make sure we have extra clothes here for your child for those “just in case” things that occur.  

Muffins with Moms:  May 11 at 3:30pm will be our Mom’s day event here at school.  All mom’s, grandmas, aunties, special ladies in your child’s life are welcome to come spend some special time with your kiddos.  The children are so excited for this annual event.. It is always a fun afternoon! Hope many of you can make it.
