FS January Newsletter
It’s 2021! It’s been so wonderful to fill our Forest and learning spaces with the sights and sounds of our children learning, laughing and loving again. We have enjoyed hearing about the adventures your family embarked upon over Christmas break. As we stand together at the cusp of this new year, we together give God all that we are and all that will be. Looking out into 2021 we also see the new 2021-2022 school year! This means enrollment season is upon us. We continually pray for our families at Holland Christian. It is at this time of year that we pray too for our prospective families. We love to have new people asking questions, enjoying tours and considering joining the family at Holland Christian. Please note the following dates are when enrollment will begin: Kindergarten enrollment will begin at 7:00 AM on Tuesday, February 2. Preschool enrollment will begin at 7:00 AM on Tuesday, February 9. Please don’t hesitate to call school if you have any questions in that regard.
All peace and joy,
School Supplied Snacks
The USDA has created a federal program feeding all school children lunch, at no cost to families, during this pandemic. Two SNACKS will now also be offered to all school children each day. You may choose to keep your snacks at home. We’ve got your child covered (and well fed!)
Please report to us if your child(ren) is going to be absent. This needs to be done each day they will not be in school. Also, we would appreciate it if they were reported in by 8:45 AM, but you can call and leave a message anytime before that time. If you do not call us, and if the child’s teacher does not know about the absence, we will try to call you. This policy is to protect your child; we want to ensure your child’s safe arrival at school.
