August is bittersweet and filled with many mixed emotions as we have to say goodbye to many of our friends as they go off to kindergarten. Some of these children we have watched grow up as they started with us as tiny babies. We wish all of them the best and know they are going to rock kindergarten. We are super excited to start the new school year on August 8 with many new families joining us.
REMINDERS - There are several important reminders regarding the start of the new school year. Please be sure to see the "Back-to-School Reminders" section of this newsletter.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out, email: firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-257-9127.

NEW CLASSROOMS: Many children will be moving classrooms with the start of the new school year. If you haven't already done so, please check the wipe-off board in the entryway to see which classroom your child will be in for the fall. If your child is moving we ask that you take home all of their personal items on the last day that they attend the week of August 1. On the first day your child attends the week of Aug. 8 please bring back a change of clothes and nap items.
TUITION: If your child is moving rooms and their tuition changes you will be receiving an email letting you know the new rate. You will need to go to the payment portal and make the change as we do not have access to your account to do this.
FACEBOOK GROUPS: If you are a member of your child's classroom Facebook page and they are moving classrooms, please remove yourself from their group. On the first week of the new school year, you can ask your child's teacher for the new classes' Facebook group.

Employees of the Month
Please put your hands together to help celebrate our Employee of the Month is Alana Brown!
Alana was voted EOM by her peers at our July staff meeting. She was recently promoted to the lead teaching position in the Sea Turtle room. Alana is excited to start the new school year and her new Sea Turtle class.
She enjoys getting to know all the children's different personalities and watching them learn and grow. She is extremely patient which helps in understanding each child's individual needs. Alana feels strongly that each child needs to feel valued to build their sense of trust, strengths, and abilities to further their learning experience.
In her free time, Alana enjoys taking her dogs on hikes and eating at new restaurants. Please join us in not only graduating Alana on her promotion but also on being voted the EOM for August.
