Little Friends of Jesus
Volume 3 February 2021
Tid-bits from Administration
Ms. Nikki Z will be going to full-time at the hospital starting March 1. She will remain on at LFOJ as an emergency substitute. We want to welcome Haydn Lamerand to LFOJ. She started on Monday, February 22 as an Assistant Teacher. She will float amongst all age groups. Haydn is enrolled in the Early Childhood Education through Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe College.
Monthly Payment Winner
February’s “Payment Winner” is the Lipske family. Congratulations! Payments are due the Friday prior to the billing week by 9:00 a.m. Parents that pay on time will be placed in a drawing. Names are drawn monthly, and the winner receives a $10 credit on their bill.
LFOJ will be closed for Good Friday, on April 2, 2021.
We may close additional days adjacent to Good Friday if our enrollment numbers justify our closing.
LFOJ has an abundance of school-age children requesting care for the summer. Mid-month, a survey will be sent out to verify how many families will be needing care, the number of days needed, along with asking if your child will be attending summer school through the Ashland School District. Please return your survey ASAP. This will help us to determine the factors listed above and give us adequate time if we need parents to find alternate care for their children, if space is not available.
It is required that parents call the center if their child/children will not be attending LFOJ or will be late. According to the State of Wisconsin, LFOJ staff are required to call parents if their child is 30 minutes late. Please NOTE ~ Full-time children that receive a credit per month, only receive that credit is parents call LFOJ ~ Not if LFOJ has to call the parent..
Hello and Happy March!
I can’t believe it is already March! I don’t know where the time is going. Thank you to everyone for being so patient and accepting during my transition to lead.
We have been so blessed with this warm weather lately and I’m hoping it stays. We are getting outside almost everyday, so just a reminder to bring your child’s outdoor clothing with them each day. Along with getting outdoors, we do get messy from art, lunch, and normal accidents so extra clothes are super important.
We will be updating our family picture board, so please bring in an updated family photo for your kids to display in our room.
I would love to answer any questions/concerns you may have so please don’t hesitate to ask.
Hello to the month of March!
We will be talking about frogs, telling time, lucky leprechauns, and spring flowers. Along with these fun themes, we will be starting to get into our bible stories about Easter.
Our bible stories that we will be talking about will be, “A Fishermen’s Net”, “Washing the Disciples’ Feet”, “The Last Supper”, and “Jesus is Arrested and Crucified”.
We have four birthdays this month. Happy 5th birthday Lucas J. Happy 51st birthday to Ms. Karyn. Happy 25th birthday to Ms. Molly, and a happy birthday to Ms. Kim, our wonderful cook.
We want to say a big welcome to our new learner friend, Bryson C. It is awesome we get to have you come and play with us during the week.
It is getting nicer out and our playground gets pretty wet, so please make sure you are sending extra clothes.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.
I feel like this school year is flying by. Thankfully, everyone has been healthy enough where the kiddos get to stay in school.
We really enjoy our Wednesdays with the school agers. Just an update with that, if your child has work or projects they need to do for school, they are more than welcome to bring them in and work on them throughout the day. Along with work, if your child has Lego sets, a special toy, or even a good book they are reading, please send it with them. We do have down time during the day where they can have that time to do these things.
We have one birthday this month. A big happy birthday to Nick V.! We are wishing you an amazing day today (March 1st) and wish you nothing but love and happiness this year.
Again, if you have any comments, questions, or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact me.
