Broad Bay Manor September 2020 Newsletter

Dear Parents,

 

Amid tough challenges we did it! Parents, children, teachers, and staff have succeeded in getting Broad Bay Manor School off to a wonderful start. Our virtual open house introduced you to your child’s teacher and provided insight on your child’s classroom. We sincerely appreciate your understanding as we navigate through this ever-changing world. We know that your child’s drop off and pick up are especially demanding. Please have your ID ready.  If we do not recognize you personally, we will check your ID.   By next week everything should be easier.  We appreciate your patience as it allows us to safeguard and fine-tune all our new procedures. Again, thank you so much!

 

Please remember, The Manor schools will NOT be providing a regular lunch service this fall. All students are expected to bring their lunch from home Monday – Thursday. At the end of every week we will have Pizza Friday! You have the option to buy pizza for your child that will be delivered to the school or bring is a home lunch on Fridays.  We supplement fruit, veggie, cookie, and milk. We did this during our summer programs and the children were thrilled.  The cost of the pizza lunch is $5.  We will invoice you at the end of month as needed.

 

September promises to be a beautiful and exhilarating month.  The teachers are just as excited and eager as the children and have planned their activities carefully.  There are so many things to teach and ways to teach them.  Many of the projects your child brings home will have served several purposes.  Often, we are more interested in the process rather than the product.  The teachers’ goals are to teach the children how to follow oral directions, to locate top and bottom, and move from left top right across the page.  If you are ever distressed by what you perceive as a lack of creativity or too little “hands on” in a project, please don’t hesitate to call your child’s teacher or me.  Remember –our goals are the same- a confident child with a positive self-image who loves learning and school.

 

As many of you now know, the standard response to “What did you do in school today?” is, “Nothing.”  Often young children cannot separate the many different activities in which they participated.  They remember their preschool hours as one when they “played.”  Each classroom has a tremendous variety of teaching equipment so the children are learning as they play.  Most of them can remember snack time, but for all of them it is difficult to deliver a blow-by-blow on the way home.  Our monthly newsletters are to inform the parents of what is happening so you can more easily share in your child’s learning experience.  Each teacher has prepared “units” for the children to study.  Art, music, snacks, and papers will reflect a particular unit.

 

During this month our two-year old classes look at themselves in a unit we have named “It’s All About Me” (of course it is).  They look closely at themselves from head to toe. They will learn how they relate to their environment by consciously exploring it.  For many of these children this is their first experience away from home.  We plan to make it a fun and positive one.  Their days are filled with many sensory experiences as they look at themselves and talk about their eyes, hair, muscles, etc.  We have updated the curriculum, so in addition to individualized papers and art projects, there are activity days too.  These are the times when the teacher works with each child on fine and gross motor skills such as how to do puzzles or lace a shoe.  Although every day may not produce a craft or paper, be assured their teacher works individually with each child on various activities.

 

The three-year olds usually settle into the routine of school very nicely.  Because apples, school, teachers, and September seem to go together, the threes begin the year with a quick look at apples.  They will learn about Johnny Appleseed, eat, paint, and color apples.  It is an extremely fun unit and gives the children a chance to experiment with many different mediums.  This will be followed by an in-depth study of shapes and colors.  The grand finale will be a Shape and Color Hunt (Similar to an Easter Egg Hunt only we hunt shapes, not eggs).

 

The four-year-olds devote September to the alphabet – Sounds boring, but not the way we do it!  This first month of letter and sound identification is an introduction for some and reinforcement or even review for others.  The four-year olds’ parents will receive a detailed calendar of events for the month of September.  This kind of unit provides tremendous opportunities for music, poems, foods, gross and fine motor experiences.  Try to help your child remember bubble (B), glitter (G) and Ice cream (I) day.  If you missed the snack sign up sheet, call your child’s teacher.  Leigh and Dorothy have outstanding ideas and would appreciate the help.

 

Pre-Kindergarten classes will also be doing a quick review of the alphabet and consonant sounds.  One of the advantages of beginning the year with an alphabet overview is the opportunity it gives the teacher to assess fine motor skills and strengthen cutting and gluing abilities.  Ms. Moesta and Ms. Brantley can’t wait to show the alphabet in a whole new way!

 

The Kindergarten classes spend most of September studying the history of transportation.  The unit is divided into three areas – land, sea, and air.  Of course, once we blast off into space, we have a wonderful astronaut party complete with “space” food!  For those of you new to Broad Bay, I might as well let you know now- we are definitely a party school.  It is one of our ways to keep learning a wonderful and memorable experience.  This year we have added a STEM program to our ALL-DAY kindergarten class.  The focus will be on problem solving and critical thinking through math and science during hands on experiments.  We can’t wait to see where these kids go with it!

I want to thank each of you for being so pleasant and cooperative.  As this month progresses, we will be observing the children closely to see they are properly placed both socially and academically.  Our primary concern is always the total wellbeing of your child.  If we all keep that as our goal, this year should be fantastic.

Each year brings fresh new faces, many of whom we do not yet recognize.  Until we are familiar with you, we will check your ID against the names given on the registration form during pick up.  For security and health reasons the doors are locked and parents are not regularly permitted in the building this year.

You will soon find information regarding the Manor Schools September fundraiser coming home.  You are under NO OBLIGATION at all.  If you do not wish to participate that is okay, although obviously we would appreciate your support.  All money earned will be used toward the purchase of more iPads, technology, and equipment.  The grand prize this year is half off one month’s  tuition for the top seller in all four schools.  Second and third place will receive a $75 and $50 gift certificate to a local restaurant.

 

Some quick notes to help the school year start off smooth…

 

  • Morning preschool class starts at 8:45, with a drop off no earlier than 8:30. Only children enrolled in our all-day program or before school program may arrive before 8:30
  • Mid-day pick-up is from 11:45-12:00, this is for children leaving after the morning class. Please have the large card with your child’s name clearly printed on it.  Place the card in your windshield as you pull in the front parking spots.
  • All tuition payments are due the first day of school. Please give your tuition to the staff checking temperatures at the front door. Payments received after the 10th of the month should include an additional $25.00 late fee.
  • Hopefully sometime during your time with us, your child will arrive home with his/her PHONICS book, followed several months later by a reader!!! Each workbook will cost $16.00.  In addition, math workbooks will be used in the four-year old, prek and kindergarten classes.  You can either purchase the readers ($11.00) or send in a $35.00 nonrefundable book rental fee that will expire August 2020.
  • We need to know by 10:00 if your child is having pizza lunch on Friday. If you have not already dropped off by then, please call the school to order your child a lunch if needed.
  • Every student should have a parent signed COVID-19 policy in their file by the first week of school. If you have not already, please make sure to send it in ASAP.

 

**We are a licensed facility and all children attending Broad Bay Manor must have a Virginia State Health Form, shot record and birth certificate on hand to attend school.**

September promises to be a beautiful and exhilarating month.  The teachers are just as excited and eager as the children and have planned their activities carefully.  There are so many things to teach and ways to teach them.  Many of the projects your child brings home will have served several purposes.  Often, we are more interested in the process rather than the product.  The teachers’ goals are to teach the children how to follow verbal directions, to locate top and bottom, and move from left top right across the page.  If you are ever distressed by what you perceive as a lack of creativity or too little “hands on” in a project, please don’t hesitate to call your child’s teacher or me.  Remember –our goals are the same- a confident child with a positive self-image who loves learning and school.

 

As many of you now know, the standard response to “What did you do in school today?” is, “Nothing.”  Often young children cannot separate the many different activities in which they participated.  They remember their preschool hours as one when they “played.”  Each classroom has a tremendous variety of teaching equipment so the children are learning as they play.  Most of them can remember snack time, but for all of them it is difficult to deliver a blow-by-blow on the way home.  Our monthly newsletters are to inform the parents of what is happening so you can more easily share in your child’s learning experience.  Each teacher has prepared “units” for the children to study.  Art, music, snacks, and papers will reflect a particular unit.

 

During this month our two-year old classes look at themselves in a unit we have named “It’s All About Me” (of course it is).  They look closely at themselves from head to toe. They will learn how they relate to their environment by consciously exploring it.  For many of these children this is their first experience away from home.  We plan to make it a fun and positive one.  Their days are filled with many sensory experiences as they look at themselves and talk about their eyes, hair, muscles, etc.  We have updated the curriculum, so in addition to individualized papers and art projects, there are activity days too.  These are the times when the teacher works with each child on fine and gross motor skills such as how to do puzzles or lace a shoe.  Although every day may not produce a craft or paper, be assured their teacher works individually with each child on various activities.

 

The three-year olds usually settle into the routine of school very nicely.  Because apples, school, teachers, and September seem to go together, the threes begin the year with a quick look at apples.  They will learn about Johnny Appleseed, eat, paint, and color apples.  It is an extremely fun unit and gives the children a chance to experiment with many different mediums.  This will be followed by an in-depth study of shapes and colors.  The grand finale will be a Shape and Color Hunt (Similar to an Easter Egg Hunt only we hunt shapes, not eggs).

 

The four-year-olds devote September to the alphabet – Sounds boring, but not the way we do it!  This first month of letter and sound identification is an introduction for some and reinforcement or even review for others.  The four-year olds’ parents will receive a detailed calendar of events for the month of September.  This kind of unit provides tremendous opportunities for music, poems, foods, gross and fine motor experiences.  Try to help your child remember bubble (B), glitter (G) and Ice cream (I) day.  If you missed the snack sign up sheet, call your child’s teacher.  Ms. Sara and Ms. Haylie have outstanding ideas and would appreciate the help.

 

Pre-Kindergarten classes will also be doing a quick review of the alphabet and consonant sounds.  One of the advantages of beginning the year with an alphabet overview is the opportunity it gives the teacher to assess fine motor skills and strengthen cutting and gluing abilities.  Ms. Sandra and Ms. Carrie can’t wait to show the alphabet in a whole new way!

 

The Kindergarten classes spend most of September studying the history of transportation.  The unit is divided into three areas – land, sea, and air. I  might as well let you know now- we are definitely a party school.  It is one of our ways to keep learning a wonderful and memorable experience.  This year we have added a STEMprogram to our ALL-DAY kindergarten class.  The focus will be on problem solving and critical thinking through math and science during hands on experiments.  We can’t wait to see where these kids go with it!

I want to thank each of you for being so pleasant and cooperative.  As this month progresses, we will be observing the children closely to see they are properly placed both socially and academically.  Our primary concern is always the total wellbeing of your child.  If we all keep that as our goal, this year should be fantastic.

Each year brings fresh new faces, many of whom we do not yet recognize.  Until we are familiar with you, we will check your ID against the names given on the registration form during pick up.  For security and health reasons the doors are locked and parents are not regularly permitted in the building this year.

You will soon find information regarding the Manor Schools September fundraiser coming home.  You are under NO OBLIGATION at all.  If you do not wish to participate that is okay, although obviously we would appreciate your support.  All money earned will be used toward the purchase of more iPads, technology, and equipment.  The grand prize this year is half off one month’s  tuition for the top seller in all four schools.  Second and third place will receive a $75 and $50 gift certificate to a local restaurant of your choice.

 

Some quick notes to help the school year start off smooth…

 

  • Morning preschool class starts at 8:45, with a drop off no earlier than 8:30. Only children enrolled in our all-day program or before school program may arrive before 8:30
  • Mid-day pick-up is from 11:45-12:00, this is for children leaving after the morning class. Please have your large carpool sign with your child’s name clearly printed on it.  The sign will be sent home on your child’s first day of school.  Place the card in your windshield as you pull in the front parking spots.
  • All tuition payments are due the first day of school. Please give your tuition to the staff checking temperatures at drop off. Payments received after the 15th of the month should include an additional $25.00 late fee.
  • Hopefully sometime during your time with us, your child will arrive home with his/her PHONICS book, followed several months later by a reader!!! Each workbook will cost $16.00.  In addition, math workbooks will be used in the four-year old, prek and kindergarten classes.  You can either purchase the readers ($11.00) or send in a $35.00 nonrefundable book rental fee that will expire August 2020.
  • We need to know by 10:00 if your child is having pizza lunch on Friday. If you have not already dropped off by then, please call the school to order your child a lunch if needed.
  • Every student should have a parent signed COVID-19 policy in their file by the first week of school. If you have not already, please make sure to send it in ASAP.

 

**We are a licensed facility and all children attending Bellamy Manor must have a Virginia State Health Form, shot record and birth certificate on hand to attend school.**

Bellamy Manor Summer Newsletter

It looks like we will start off with a rather warm and humid beginning.  The Manor School’s summer program will be full of excitement!  This summer you should see your child grow both socially and academically.  Our Summer program focuses on the ocean, its inhabitants, and its environment.  The children study fish, shells, sea birds, marine mammals, and the beach.  Art, crafts, and papers will reflect this emphasis as we help develop your child’s fine and gross motor skills, visual and auditory memory, and letter and number recognition.  Phonics, reading, and math will be gently emphasized at all levels.

For the first half of summer the children focus on the turtles, beach, shells, and fish. If there is one thing we do well, its beach play. Shell, crafts, fish prints, sand casting, and a beach party highlight this unit.

Next, we will take a Caribbean cruise and learn all about pirates. They may have terrorized our forefathers, but today they give a thrill to our lives with special stories and projects! Undersea studies and treasure hunts share our attention with island fun.

Send a backpack with your child each day that contains a full change of clothes and any napping needs.  It helps us if shoes, book bags and lunch boxes are clearly marked with your child’s name. Please realize that gross motor play is emphasized as well as academics so dress your child appropriately from head to toe.  Make sure to apply sunscreen to your child before coming to school.  We can re-apply mid-day for those kids that stay after lunch as long as a parent has signed a sunscreen permission slip.

We will be closed July 3rd for the holiday!

Bellamy Manor March 2020 Newsletter

Dear Parents,

March has arrived with occasional warm days that promise spring. February was an intense month, and our children grew in knowledge as well as stature as they explored other cultures, colors, community helpers, birds and past Presidents.

Ms. Kirsty and Ms. Susanne continue to help our youngest children with the exciting process of learning. The children paint, crayon and cut as they learn about shapes.

The three-year-olds will be learning about nutrition. Our goal is to help the children learn about “good” foods and the main food groups. This unit involves quite a bit of cooking and sampling with each food group. They will make bread, pizza, fries and paint with vegetables. The grand finale is a yummy party and a class created cookbook!

Our four-year-olds will be taking a look back in time as they study the Wild West. They will be learning about horses, cowboys and Rodeos with a combination of factual information. They’ll also study horses with many delightful stories about the American Cowboys.

Ms. Sandra’s Pre-K class looks at our world from a geographical and environmental angle. Ms. Sandra introduces her children to some basic geographical concepts using habitats as her motif. By mid-month the children are learning about the fragility of various habitats and the interdependence between the environment and its inhabitants. An investigation of endangered species concludes the unit.

The kindergarten classes finished a whirlwind trip around the world last week. They now will study the human body. It is now time to learn more about ourselves. We start by looking closely at our skin and are working our way through the body systems to the heart (the most important part!)

Our Spring Break will be the week of April 13th –17th. We plan to dye eggs on April 6th and 7th. Our annual egg hunts will be April 9-10th. Your child’s teacher will be sending out more information. We ask that you send in a basket or bag labeled with your child’s name on it the morning of their hunt. The pretend grass in the basket is fine, but please no candy or stuffed animals. The following week is spring break. Both students and teachers will take a well- deserved vacation before returning for the final busy weeks of school.

Registration is going beautifully thanks to all of you.   Keep on talking! Three of our four schools still have openings.   If you plan to return next year and have not yet turned in a pre-registration form, talk to me soon. We would hate to fill your spot!

Many of you have inquired about our summer program. It is patterned on the school year adapted for summer.   It offers continued play, academics, social, and craft opportunities. The children have plenty of opportunity to play dress ups, easels paint, puzzles, games, and water play. The registration forms for summer is attached and will also be available in the lobby. Enrollment is limited so please return your summer registration form if you are interested.

We will use the Info-Snap online enrollment procedure for our summer program registration. It’s a two- step process. Step one is the submission of the summer preregistration form and fee. Step two is the online submission of the Info-Snap registration form. We will need the preregistration form and fee before you submit your online registration. Parents who choose to pay the registration fee via credit or debit card may do so through our online tuition portal, Diamond Mind (http://bellamymanor.diamondmindinc.com/).

It looks like a full and fun month ahead. We are two thirds through the year, and the growth in the children is incredible. They have learned a tremendous amount in these past months. We feel so fortunate to have such a rewarding job. Your children bring us joy in so many ways.

Sincerely,

Nancy

Greenbrier Manor March 2020 Newsletter

Dear Parents,

 

If February’s warmth was a hint, March will declare that spring is here. Last month was an intense month and our children grew in knowledge as well as stature as they explored life on the farm, leave Farmer MacGregor’s garden, past presidents, and themselves.

Ms Loretta and Ms Karen will introduce the children to the colors all around us! They will explore color through food, animals, textures and lots of books. It will be a truly exciting month for our little ones!

The three-year-old classes will be introduced to Eric Carle, the celebrated children’s author. His books are delightful and the children will enjoy not only his emotional characters, but also his colorful and crafty illustrative techniques. There will be lots of cooking this month – Thanks to Jack and his Mama and Walter the baker!

Bridget, Kim, and Kari’s four-year-olds are in for a treat this month because it’s BEAR MONTH! From Corduroy, Pooh, and Paddington to pandas and polar bears they investigate bears, their habits and habitats. Some activities you might hear about include packing Paddington’s suitcase, painting Pooh, and ultimately our teddy bear picnic. The fours indulge in fantasy to their heart’s content.

Ms. Gwen’s pre-kindergarten classes investigate weather – clouds, rainbows, snowflakes, and wind. This unit is designed to be quite a hands on, scientific approach to the causes of different types of weather. Letter and number recognition as well as phonics instruction continue on an individual basis.

The kindergarten class goes around the world. It’s a full month’s trip, and we learn about children from other countries. The emphasis of study is on the dress, food, homes, and customs of children from countries in Europe, Asia, and Africa. If any of you have traveled and can share pictures or souvenirs with the class, please let Tracy and Stephanie know.

In Spanish, we will be learning about clothes. You may hear your child say I need my la chaqueta y el abrigo (coat and sweater) as we finish winter and enter spring.

Registration is going beautifully thanks to all of you. Keep on talking! If you plan to return next year and have not yet turned in a registration form, talk to Jackie soon. We would hate to fill your spot.

Many of you have inquired about GMS’s summer program. It is patterned on the GMS school year adapted for summer. It offers continued play, academics, social, and craft opportunities. The children have plenty of opportunity to use the iPads, dress-ups, easels, puzzles, and games. Enrollment is limited so please return the preregistration form if you are interested.

We will use the InfoSnap online enrollment procedure for our summer program registration. It’ll remain a two-step process. Step one is the submission of the summer preregistration form and fee. Step two is the online submission of the InfoSnap registration form. We will need the preregistration form and fee before you submit your online registration. Parents who choose to pay the registration fee via credit or debit card may do so through our online tuition portal, Diamond Mind (http://greenbriermanor.diamondmindinc.com/).

Spring Break is coming up April13th thru April 17th. Our spring celebration will be the week of April 6th. We plan to dye eggs and have our egg hunts on April 8th and 9th. We will close at the end of the day Friday April 10th for Spring Break. Both students and teachers will take a well-deserved vacation before returning for the final busy weeks of school.

Please remember we are a peanut and tree nut free school. Make sure you check ingredients in the foods you send in with your child. If you bring in food for the entire class, it must be store bought with the label still attached. We will check to make sure it was not made in a facility processed with peanuts or tree nuts as well. If you have any questions about our policy, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you!

 

Sincerely,

 

Jackie
