Peace, Love & Kids. It's what we do!
Kids’ Campus will be closed on Monday, May 31ST for Memorial Day.
Just as in any business and/or profession, KCCC has seasons. Seasons where things flow and everything seems like sunshine and rainbows and other seasons, not so much. For those of you who are not aware, 3 teachers have left KCCC at the end of April. Some giving notice, some not which put your teachers, my staff, in a barebones situation. We combined classes, re-assigned teachers temporarily so, my deepest apologies if we and/or your children seemed a little “off” lately.
I am currently conducting interviews and am going to make this process move as quickly as I can. I have asked a couple of you parents to help in the interview process, I have different steps to the process at the encouragement of the COE training that I’ve been receiving. I want to make sure that the replacements are the right fit and the best fit for you, your children and our team. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding. AND if you know of someone that you trust to add to our team, PLEASE, send them my way, I would love the chance to get to know them.

Our summer session is scheduled to begin Tuesday, June 1st. Summer is more relaxed, the schedule is less structured, and themes are planned for the children to enjoy. Splash Day is every Friday – children wear their swimsuits to Kids’ Campus and play in the sprinklers during the morning recess. Summer enrollees will receive a monthly calendar of activities and themes, and more information at the beginning of the session. School age children will have their own program. Schooler parents, please check your email for a field trip survey link that I will be sending out very soon. The replacement teacher for Ms. Stephanie will be sending a letter home for those children enrolled this summer in the schooler class.
*Please remember that if your child begins the summer session, you are obligated to pay the ENTIRE session. If you change your mind after the summer session begins and UN-enroll your child, you will lose your spot in the fall. If you have any questions, please call.
May Scholastic book orders are attached. This will be the last chance to order books for your child this school year. Make sure they have plenty to read this summer! If you would like to order this month, please return the order form with payment by Wednesday, May 12th (Checks made out to Scholastic only please, no cash). You can always order online at www.scholastic.com/bookclubsusing class code M9CMD.
It is always difficult for us to say good-bye to children leaving Kids’ Campus. If this is your last month here, we will miss you! We hope you have a great summer. Please come back to visit! For all of those leaving for the summer only, you have a great summer too! We look forward to hearing all about it in August!
