Hello Levey Families!

DASH WEEK is underway! Monday, Jan. 7-Friday, Jan. 11:  The theme is space, a school-wide DASH week topic.  Most, if not all, school instruction will be centered around the theme of space.  More info to come from your child’s homeroom teacher. Planetarium Visit — Friday, Jan. 11 — We’re excited to head to the Planetarium!  1-2PM.  We are thinking ahead to February vacation and looking to offer a Levey Vacation Camp that week. The break is from Monday, February 18 to Friday, February 22. Please take a moment to complete the doodle polls below so we can accurately gauge interest in a camp. Thank you! Morning start time is 8:30. The camp would run in two sessions — 8:30 am-12:00pm and 12:00 pm-3:30 pm. 8:30 am-12:00 pm cost is $45.00. 12:00-3:30 cost is $45.00. The full day cost is $80.00. Which days would your children attend? What program times would be best? Interested in full or half days? Would you use this service for your child? Which Themes would you like to see included in our programming? **************************************************************************************************************************************** Thursday, Jan 17: Ted McInerney a meteorologist from Channel 8, will do his morning broadcast live from Levey!  More info to come! Levey Slime Fest ’19!  We are hosting and sponsoring a PJ Library event on Sunday, March 3 1:30-3:00pm within our halls and classrooms.  Share with friends!  This is a family-friendly event, and it’s also a terrific marketing event for the school for prospective families.  We hope to have all our preschool friends all over the area in attendance! After Care Enrichment — New trimester, new classes!  We began our new After Care classes. Please be sure to fill out the new form for this Trimester as the daily themes have changed and Rachel will need a record of which days students attend. This session we will be working on projects based on the day’s theme.  The form is below. Spirit Days!  We are seeing many more students wearing Levey swag!  Each Friday is Spirit Day — order yours today!  We have a very limited number of Levey swag items leftover from last year.  They’re hanging near the office entrance.  First come, first serve! It’s cold outside, and we’re having a ball!  Just a reminder — please make sure to pack snow pants, water resistant mittens, hat, boots and any other warm garments they need for outdoor recess.  We go outside in all kinds of weather! Morah Kristine’s Levey Arts blog is amazing!  It is full of photos of our students. Check out the incredible art work our kiddos are producing! Children’s Museum Pass available all year!  We have a Children’s Museum Pass in the office.  It is good for groups up to 6. Just ask for the form, and we will ensure your desired date is reserved for the pass. We wish everyone a very happy and safe vacation break next week.  May peace and happiness find you wherever your travels take you!   All the best,Levey faculty & staff Upcoming events this week: Monday, January 7th - 3:15pm - 4:14pm - Garden Club. Aftercare 4:15pm until 5:30pm.
