We are definitely gearing up for the beginning of spring and hoping that we good some warmer weather soon. However, regardless of weather all classes at UCD are required to spend time outside in the morning and afternoon. (the only exception is when the temperature is below freezing, there is a heat advisory, or it is raining/snowing) Please send your child with appropriate outdoor clothing. Also, please be understanding if your child's clothing or shoes gets muddy while playing on the playground. It is very important for your child's development and health to get outside and experience nature throughout the day!
The month of February will bring Quarterly Testing and Parent Teacher conferences. Testing allows us to gauge your child's developmental level, educational needs and evaluate our teaching techniques. Parent Teacher conferences are extremely important to early school success. This gives us an opportunity to sit and talk with parents individually, set goals for children, and communicate any concerns or needs. Please plan on attending your scheduled parent teacher conference on February 20, 2017. The school will be closed that day to allow for uninterrupted conference times.
I have posted the important dates for spring 2017 below. Please contact the office with any questions that you have regarding upcoming events.
