Dear Wonderful Parents of The Oakwood School,
As new director of Extended Day I am very excited about our upcoming year. We have many fun and new activities planned this year. We have decided to break up each day into a specific category so the students know just what to expect each day. The days will be as follows:
Messy Monday- Science Experiments
Tasty Tuesday- Cooking/Baking
Wet Wednesday- Water Activities
Tacky Thursday- Crazy Crafts
Fun Friday- Games
We will have age appropriate activities for every student to ensure they not only have fun but also learn something along the way. Please make sure your child has a change of clothes that can be kept in Extended Day. It is very likely your child will only need this change of clothes for our Wet Wednesday activities.
Each day the students will be given the opportunity to work on homework before we begin our fun activities. Students may opt out of activities if they would like to continue working on homework. Electronic games will be allowed during designated times, not during homework time. Cell phone use is not permitted. If you need to contact your child, please call the school and ask to be transferred to Extended Day. In emergencies, please feel free to also contact us via the Extended Day cell phone, 252-902-4860. Please only use this number in the case of an emergency.
This year, Extended Day will be completely nut free. We have many students with allergies to different types of nuts; therefore, in order to ensure the safety of all of our students, we will not be using and/or consuming any type of nut in our classroom. Please use caution if packing snacks for your child to have in Extended Day.
Pick up time is 6pm every day. If there is an occurrence where you will be running late please make sure you contact Extended Day so we are aware of the situation. Extended Day will be closed on full school half days.
If you ever have any concerns or questions please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org I check e-mail several times throughout the day and should be able to respond quickly. Please complete the following form by September 5, 2014 so we are able to plan accordingly for all of the students. I look forward to a great year in Extended Day!
