We are always eager to welcome new faces to our school community! As you and your family join ours, we will have many opportunities for you to meet some new friends and get your bearings.
- Fall Family events are scheduled through the year starting with an ice-cream social a few days before school begins, a chance for you to reconnect after the summer, meet some new friends, and take some time to look around the classrooms and get familiar with the school space before the first day. A parent coffee brings parents together to start the year off right with questions answered and another chance to connect with new parents, chat with returning parents, and decompress after the first week of school. Fall also brings a family picnic on a Saturday at Temporary Road Picnic Pavilion to share a pot-luck meal and play in the great out-of-doors, and then the fall festival, a day of fun crafts at school and of course, pizza on the playground. Thanksgiving wraps up our fall activities with a complete meal of turkey and all the trimmings, including pumpkin pie!
- Winter The fun starts with our holiday program, where the children perform songs and poems from holiday traditions, musical numbers with instruments from music class, and of course some dancing. Parent day is in February, a chance for you to spend the morning with your child and see how she spends her day. Another pot-luck lunch gives parents a chance to share their favorite traditional foods with the community.
- Spring When the weather warms up again, it’s time for our spring celebration, another chance to spend the morning with your child doing crafts and eating pizza on the playground. The year ends with pajama day for the children in the morning of that last day of school and then a school picnic for families, again on our playground.
It’s a full schedule of activities to bring families together and help you feel a part of our special community. Family is at the heart of all that we do here at Children’s House and we want you to feel included! If you’re having a hard time connecting with other families or you need a little support in this area, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
