WARD AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM
NOVEMBER 2018 NEWSLETTER
NO AFTER-SCHOOL ON WEDNESDAY 11/21
Reminder: School will close at 12 noon on Wednesday November 21 for the Thanksgiving holiday. There will be NO AFTER-SCHOOL that day. All students must be picked up at 12 noon.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
TUITION IS DUE BY DECEMBER 1
At the beginning of November, our bookkeeper mailed home the invoices for December, January and February. This payment is due by December 1. After-School depends solely on tuition, so late payments jeopardize the well-being of our program. We appreciate your prompt payment!
THE AFTER-SCHOOL PLAY!
When we return from the Thanksgiving break, we will be holding auditions for this year’s After-School play! This year’s show will be “Folk Tales from Far Away”, and it is an incredibly funny and sweet show. Students in grades 2-5 can audition for the play during the week of November 26 and December 3, on their regularly scheduled after-school days.
Please check the dates of April 8 and April 9 for our mandatory dress rehearsals, and Wednesday April 10 for the day of the show. Students who are traveling or have other conflicts during those dates should not audition for the show.
Please see Liz or me if you have any questions! We are looking forward to the theater season to begin!
SKI LESSONS AT BLUE HILLS
For our Tuesday students in grades 2-up, don’t forget to sign up for the ski trips coming up in January! Spots are filling up quickly, and it is first come-first serve, so do not delay. Please let me know if you need me to re-send the email about registration.
Please note: this is open to Tuesday students only. We do not have room on Tuesdays for extra students.
*Like us on Facebook! Ward After-School Program 😊
*Don’t forget to inform After-School when your child will not be attending the program. It is not enough to only inform the school. We also need to know!
*Now that it is dark at 4:30ish, please be extra extra extra careful when driving through the parking lot.
*Please do not knock on the parking lot door to ask a child who is inside the school to let you in. The students are not allowed to give entry into the building, even if they know you.
Wishing all of our families a very happy Thanksgiving! I hope you get to enjoy special time with friends and family!
