March 2017 Parent Information

Happy March!
During the past several months, the staff has enjoyed witnessing the children achieve developmental milestones, explore, create and be curious. We look forward to working with and encouraging your young ones to learn, grow and blossom as the school year progresses.

As we begin the last quarter of the school year, the PECC staff would like to take this opportunity to thank you for entrusting us with your sweet child(ren)!

Keeping Our Children and Staff Healthy
To help control illness and keep germs from spreading throughout our center, please do not come in to the building if you or a sibling have symptoms of illness. Contact Karen at 913-236-7067 and a staff member will bring your child to/from the classroom. We appreciate your cooperation.

Carnival of Care Update
Bouquets of appreciation to all those who helped make our Carnival of Care such a success! We raised $2,600.00!!! Special thanks to Creative Carnival and Events, Ms. Rebecca of Sister Act and our caring anonymous donors who provided food for the meal and cookies. Because everything was donated, 100% of the proceeds will go toward our families. Hugs to the PECC staff, Ron Fenton, Kyle Gardner, Matt Humphrey and the Prairie Baptist Youth for making this event a fun and successful evening.

Labeling Jackets and Personal Items
It is very difficult for teachers to remember multiple children’s personal items. Please LABEL your child’s jackets, bedding, lunch boxes and other personal items. Thank you.

PECC WILL BE CLOSED FOR SPRING BREAK BEGINNING ON FRIDAY, MARCH 10 THROUGH FRIDAY, MARCH 17. HAVE A FUN AND SAFE BREAK!

Arrival Time
Just a reminder that children should be dropped off at their classroom no earlier than 8:55 a.m. The teachers need time to gather supplies, set up their classrooms for the day and take care of personal needs before the school day begins. FYI: PECC staff have children who attend PECC and the kiddos are with their moms (in the classroom) while they prepare for the day.

Summer Session Enrollment
Enrollment information and forms will be sent home with PECC children the week of March 21st. Enrollment for PECC families will be the week of March 28. Enrollment will be opened to the community on April 4.

Confirmation Letters for the 20172018 School/PDO School Year
Confirmation packets are being prepared and everyone should receive a packet by March 17th. Please contact Karen Fenton if you do not receive your child(ren)’s packet.

March blessings to all of our PECC families!!!
