UCD will be doing Fall Pictures a little bit differently this year!
We are going to use our fall pictures as an opportunity to raise money for a child in need in our community. On October 14, 2015, 4-year old Ariya Robinson (pictured below with her mother, Jessica) was diagnosed with having a Wilms tumor, stage 4 cancer. In the past we have done a fundraiser for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, however, this family is close to our hearts and we would like all proceeds to go to funding Ariya's treatment, since her family is unable to go to St. Jude’s.
Fall Pictures are scheduled for Tuesday, November 17th. Weather pending, they will be taken outdoors. We will post prices on our picture packages as soon as we have them!
Tuesday, November 24th will be UCD’s Family Thanksgiving Luncheon. From 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM family members are invited to enjoy a Thanksgiving lunch with their children in the gymnasium, served by our very own G’s Catering. Please R.S.V.P so we can have an accurate head count for the big day!
A Note from Ms. Rachel:
As the weather continues to get colder, I wanted to remind everyone that unless the temperature dips below 32 degrees (including wind chill) we are required by law to take the children outside for at least 30 minutes in the morning and 30 in the afternoon. It is a good idea for children to have not only their coats, but whatever layers you feel would be appropriate (i.e. hats, gloves, scarves, etc).
Have you met Cinch?
Have you had the chance to meet Cinch? If not, ask your child about him and I’m sure he or she would be glad to “introduce” you! Cinch is our classroom pet, a black and white dwarf bunny. I’m looking forward to the many learning opportunities Cinch will provide for our students! Observing and caring for an animal instills a sense of responsibility and respect for life, and students learn that all living things need more than just food and water for survival. A pet brings increased sensitivity and awareness of the feelings and needs of others – both animal and human, and studies show that the presence of animals tends to lesson tension in the classroom. So stop by and say hi to Cinch sometime – he’s part of our family now!
