February Message

Dear Families:

It is nearing the end of February.  The time since Thanksgiving and Christmas has gone by quickly and even Valentine’s Day!  The children loved celebrating Valentine’s Day with the exchanging of individual Valentine’s!  The decorating of Valentine boxes and bags and the sweets that goes with this celebration of loving one another.

The school year is slipping by but there is much to think about.  In our last newsletter I shared about the Elementary school opportunities and we hope you will take the time to consider those for your family and share with friends and neighbors.  The grades include Transitional Kindergarten, for those 5 years old that need another year before Kindergarten or for children that turn 5 by November 1, 2012, Kindergarten, Transitional First, First and Second Grade.

The other important news to share is the wonderful response to registration for the lottery funded Georgia Pre-K program 2012-2013.  The legislature has extended the program from 160 days to 170 days for the coming year.  We are fortunate to have 6 classes at Brenwood and registration for these classrooms is going very well.  Registration started February 1st and it continues.  Please share with your friends and neighbors this opportunity as well and suggest coming for a tour, checking out the website or just coming to register for the program.  We have outstanding staff, facilities and pride ourselves on Kindergarten Readiness.

We have advertised Open Houses for currently registered families but encourage others to come that want to hear about the program and tour.  These specific events are on Thursdays, at 9 a.m., March 8, April 12 and May 10th.  But these times are not convenient we can accommodate those that would like to come at another time.

We also have opening remaining for the Pre K in May from April 30th through May 25th.  This is 20 school days of a private Pre K with some very individualized instruction and additional Kindergarten Readiness.  The twenty days cost $500.00 and more information can be obtained at the office.

We have availability in Infants through Threes and are always ready to serve your child.  We have combined an outstanding staff, wonderful play based curriculum, strong development of creativity and imagination and state of the art facilities.  A winning combination!
