Spring/Easter Egg Hunts—Thursday, April 18th

Escuelita will host its annual Easter egg hunts in our playground for all the children on Thursday, April 18th.  The children will be divided into three groups and will partake in the egg hunt along with other classes.  The infants and toddlers will hunt first.  When those groups return to their classrooms, the pre-school and school-age students will go out to the playground for their turn to look for eggs.  Parents are invited to attend.

Due to the high number of children who will be out in the playground with each group, we request that as each group’s time runs out, all the students return to their classrooms. This will alleviate the overcrowding outside.  As follows is the schedule for the egg hunts:

3:20-4:00 p.m.—Gold, Silver, Bronze, White, Green, Red, Turquoise & Yellow Rooms
4:10-4:50 p.m.—Purple, Pink, Orange, Blue & Copper Rooms
5:00-5:30 p.m.—Rainbow I & Rainbow II Rooms

We are gladly accepting donations of plastic eggs, plastic grass for the baskets, & egg fillers such as stickers, goldfish, pretzels, fruit gummies, etc.  Please refrain from donating candy or sweets, and remember that we cannot accept anything that contains nuts of any kind for we have students who are allergic.

Escuelita Closed for Classes on Friday, April 19th for Teacher In-Service Day

As is done yearly, Escuelita will be closed for classes for a teacher in-service day on Friday, April 19th.  The teachers will be in the building in training sessions and the school will be closed to students on that day.  Please ensure to make other childcare arrangements for your child(ren) for Friday, April 19th.

Tuition Increase

Due to its rising financial obligations, Escuelita finds itself in the necessity to implement a tuition increase. 

As you plan your enrollment and attendance needs for the new 2019-20 which will commence on August 13th, please make note that there will be a monthly increase of $35 per child across the board, for all the ages, including the after-school program.  This increase will become effective on September 1, 2019.  We will continue to send reminders of the tuition increase in the months leading up to September.

Changes to Your Child’s Enrollment?

If you need to make changes to your child(ren)’s attendance for the new school year that will start on August 13th, you must communicate with Ms. Dina, the director, via email as soon as possible.

She is starting work on the groupings and class assignments for the new school year. So that she may prioritize the attendance needs of our current students, Ms. Dina must hear from you regarding your attendance plans as soon as possible. If only attending on a part-time basis now, you can plan to add more days when the new school year starts. Likewise, you can choose to cut back from full time to part-time enrollment at that time. As you plan the needed changes, do take into consideration the planned tuition increase that will go into effect on September 1, 2019, and of which you are being notified in this same newsletter. 

Only if you plan changes, please ensure to send your request via email to dinaflores@escuelitadelalma.com by April 22nd.  If she does not hear from you, she will re-enroll your child for another year of attendance with the same number of days as you currently attend.  She will be unable to honor your requests after that date since she must fill any vacancies with new students asap.
