On May 5th, we will be celebrating Cinco de Mayo Day. Please bring a Mexican treat to share with the class (chips & salsa, chips & cheese). Our country this month is Mexico. If your child has any items relating to Mexico, he/she can bring them to school.

Reminders

All the Classes for the Fall 2017-2018 school year are filling up. If you have not registered yet please do so now! You must register for this fall, if you have not done so already. We still have openings. Space is limited in the Toddler room, don’t assume you have a spot until you register! We love referrals! If you refer anyone and they register, let us know and we will give you a $25 credit.

For the safety of your child, please be with them in our vestibule.

All Parents- Please remember to put sunscreen on before coming to school when the weather starts getting nicer. We will reapply sunscreen in the afternoon. Daycare parents need to supply school with a bottle of sunscreen for the afternoon (No Spray Sunscreen please).

Summer Camp starts June 12th. We hope you’ll join us for the many creative themes. It sure is a nice way to keep your child involved and stimulated. You can choose your weeks and be flexible in the days you attend. If you are currently enrolled there is no additional registration fee,

It is a joint venture in raising your child. The lines of communication are always open - JOYS AND CONCERNS

Vacation Policy – We only allow for vacation time off during the summer with an advance two-week notice. There is no vacation time off during the school year. If you decide to take vacation during that time, full tuition is still due. We do offer a one-week winter break (week after Christmas) and a one-week spring break.


Before and After School Care Only

We will match any competitor rates for Rogus Kindergarten before and after school care. You must show us a price sheet from the competitor (example: Park District, Ivy League, KinderCare, etc.) (No in-home service.) Services must be comparable. The rate is under the discretion of the director. We provide small size activities, snack, and homework time. We do have a bus stop for Walker School for 5th and 6th grade before and after school care.


*Please remember to not leave food in your child’s backpack and NO peanut products in accordance with DCFS regulations.
