Dear Parents,

Happy New Year to all of our families and staff! We hope you and your family had wonderful holidays together.  We have a lot in store for your children and for the whole family in 2017. As a reminder, we are closed for the holiday on Monday, January, 2, 2017, and we will re-open on Tuesday, January 3, 2017.

I also wanted to announce … ONLINE REGISTRATION FOR FALL 2017 IS NOW OPEN!  We are offering in-house priority registration to our current students so you can save a spot for your child before we open the registration up to the public.  You may complete  the registration form and pay the registration fee on our website to save your child’s spot for the next school year.

Here is the link to register using our secure online form:  https://www.pepperminttree.com/registration/

(PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER USING YOUR CELL PHONE.  Online registration must be completed on a computer, so we can get all the information we need.)

Here is our registration schedule:

  • In-House Priority Registration for Fall 2017 for current families only:  December 30, 2016 – January 16, 2017.  As of January 17, 2017, Fall 2017 registration will be open to the public.   (Also,we are raising the school year registration fee after March 31st, so registering early will also save you $25.00.)  Online registration is open now, and we are sending home a paper registration form during the  week of January 3, 2017.)
  • In-House Priority Registration for Summer Camp 2017 for current families only:  January 17, 2017 – January 31, 2017.  As of February 1, 2017, Summer Camp registration will be open to the public.  We were 100% sold out last summer, so please register during the in-house priority registration period to ensure you get a spot and the schedule you need!   If your child has not attended our summer camp in the past, you can learn more about it on our website:    http://www.pepperminttree.com/our-summer-program/

As always, my door is open to you. If there are any questions, ideas or concerns you’d like to discuss, please feel free to call or email me, or stop in. (more…)

December Newsletter

Dear Parents,

I hope all of our families and staff had a wonderful Thanksgiving break with your families.   I want to thank all those who joined us for our Thanksgiving Feast on November 18th.  We had a record-breaking 120 family members and staff celebrating together, and so many of you were generous in sharing a food item for the feast, and/or donating non-perishable foods for the “Your Grandmother’s Cupboard” organization.  What a fabulous community we have!

We’ve got an exciting month in December, including a Holiday Shop for the children, and Mrs. Sullivan’s class will have a “Sing-Along” for parents.   And, during our first week we have Pajama Days to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, as well as a Pajama Night, Friday evening 12/2.  Week two starts with FREE DENTAL SCREENING–please send in your permission forms.  And, as he does each month, Mr. Scott the Music Man will be visiting our classrooms on Thursday, 12/22/16.  

As a reminder, you can always check our event calendar on our website, by going to www.pepperminttree.com, and clicking the “Events” menu at the top/right.   (more…)
