 happy new year ona black background with fireworks

Dear Parents,

Happy New year and welcome back! We hope you had a wonderful holiday and enjoyed quality time with family and friends.  We would like to thank you for the generous gifts and holiday wishes.  The best gift each family has given us is the opportunity to work with your children and we appreciate your trust in us to care for your young ones. We would also like to thank all the families that took part in our can food drive, we really appreciate your donations towards the families in need.

As we reflect back to 2022, we would like to take a moment to thank you for all the support you have given us and we hope in this new year we can continue to make our relationships even stronger.  At CTM, we strive towards high‐quality standards with genuine loving, nurturing, and caring staff.  Every morning our teachers look forward to seeing your smiling children come through the door and give them a boost of energy with their hugs.

It’ truly a blessing to have such caring staff and families, as we look forward to another rewarding year with all of our CTM families.

Much Love,

December 21 Silent Night Day in PJ

Please refrain from holding lengthy conversations with your child’s teacher during drop off and pick up times.  Our teachers must concentrate and supervise the children since these are busy times of the day.  If you would like to speak to your child’s teacher, please send them a message through Procare.  We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

Student pick‐up Changes:  If you would like to change your child’s pick‐up timings, we are happy to accommodate your needs.  To help us with staffing, the school requires a month’s notice.  CTM will not return or refund any tuition if pick‐up changes are requested without a month’s notice.

Monthly Tuition:  New tuition rates went into effect January 1, 2023.  Any returned checks or CC declines will incur a $50.00 fee.

Late Pick‐Up:  All late pick‐ups will be charged at the end of day.  Please be mindful of staffing needs.   We try our best to keep a 1:5 ratio at all times, and the teachers and assistants are scheduled accordingly.  All children attendance will be tracked, if the child is picked up late continuously, their family will be charged on the third day for all three days.  If you are running late, please send a message through ProCare or call the admin staff, this way we can make arrangements with our afternoon teachers.

Shoes:  All children must wear proper fitting gym shoes or sneakers with socks.  There’s a higher chance of accident in the playground when children are not wearing proper fitting shoes, please work with us in decreasing the number accidents that occur.  Children will not be allowed to play in the playground if they are not wearing proper shoes.

Snack and Lunch:  Please refrain from sending cookies/ candy/ chocolate/ chocolate milk for lunch or snacks with your child.

Illnesses and Sick Policy:  Please keep your children home when they are sick!!   If children have a fever, vomiting, or diarrhea on a given day, they MUST STAY HOME THE NEXT DAY.  They have to be 24 hours free of any of these symptoms(without medication) before they can return to school.   We recommend that symptoms be treated with good nutrition and supplements to boost their immune system as well as enough sleep to build their strength.   Returning to good health sometimes requires more time.  Please keep your children home if their noses are continuously running, they’re coughing and showing signs of being tired and out of sorts.  Thank you so much!

Belongings:  Please label all personal belongings, jackets, extra pair of clothing, lunch boxes, bottles, etc.

Dear Parents,

Welcome back and we&rsqu;ve missed you.  I am looking forward to a new year of learning.

We will continue to work on Secondary colors, beginning sounds of their first names (the first alphabet in their names), and grace and courtesy.   We will be learning about community service workers matching the person to the related object.

Please practice using forks with your child at home and help them learn to clean up after you finish your work.

Dear Parents,

Happy New Year!  We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season!

This month, we will practice using tongs with our tongs transfer work.   We will use the tongs to move different colored Pom Poms from one bowl to the other.  We will also have our stringing beads for eye hand coordination and concentration.  We will continue learning our letter sounds and number recognition throughout the year.  We will also continue practicing our dry pouring/transfer work.

Please remember to label all of your child=’s belongings to prevent lost or misplaced items.

Winter song:

I’m a little snowman(sung to I’m a little teapot)
I’m a little snowman short and fat
Here are my buttons, here is my hat.
When the sun comes out I cannot play.
Slowly, I just melt away.

Thank you,
Toddler Teachers

Dear Parents,

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!  We hope everyone had a fun and relaxing holiday.  Thank you so much for the generous and thoughtful gifts.

We are happy to see you all after the break.  We take this opportunity to thank Ms. Green and Ms. Goshu for taking the time to do a presentation and project about the celebration of Hanukkah.

We are planning to kickstart the new year with the study of the winter season, which includes Snow, Arctic, and Antarctic regions and the animals living in these regions.   Our focus will be on the Life Cycle and parts of a Penguin.  We will also do science experiments related to the winter season.

We will read books about Martin Luther King Jr. Day.  We will focus on character traits of Martin Luther King Jr. and how we can incorporate them into our daily lives.

We would like to remind you to check your child’s cubby and make sure they have an extra pair of season‐appropriate clothing.

Thank you,
Primary Teachers
