This month we will focus on the development of positive self concept. We will be learning about ourselves: feelings, emotions, families. We will also learn about friendship and making good choices. We will discover how we are alike and different and how each of us is very special!
We will also be studying magnets, electricity, and simple tools. We will explore different sources of electricity. We will discover how simple tools work and how they help us in every day life. We will also experiment with magnets, use a compass, and test magnetic pulls.
In addition to our theme activities, we will begin letter and sound lessons, numeral and number activities, geography skills, practical life skills, cooking, scientific exploration, introductory Spanish and music.
Labor Day: Monday, Sept 4th – Foresight will be closed. Have a safe and happy holiday weekend!

Other Foresight News:
Welcome New Families!!!
Our school has an open door policy, which means you are always welcome to come into school to observe your child from a distance or volunteer in his or her classroom. We do our very best to inform parents of our policies/ program and provide many avenues for communication. We have a monthly newsletter, memo board, event calendar, parent suggestion box, teachers available for brief discussions, and you are always welcome to visit, call, or schedule a meeting with your child’s teacher or the director. Please let us know if you have any suggestions /solutions to allow us to better communicate with you.
Please be sure to pick-up your child at your scheduled time. There is a $10.00 late fee for every 10 min. you are late with a 5 min. grace time. “Late” refers to any time after your child’s scheduled pick-up time.
Also, we request your promptness in leaving at 5:30 so the teachers can close the school in a timely manner. Please understand although they enjoy every parent, they have worked a very long day and often have evening commitments. We welcome you to stay and visit any other time and always encourage parental involvement, and appreciate your consideration for all of our teachers.
We love helping your child celebrate on his/her special day. Parents are invited to bring a special snack (cupcakes, cookies, popsicles, etc) for your child to share, but please be sure that it is purchased from a licensed bakery or grocery store. Per ADHS regulations, we cannot serve anything that is prepared at home.
Please remember to label ALL of your child’s belongings before school (lunch boxes, backpacks, jackets, hats, etc.). We have permanent markers and/or tape so if you need any help just ask a teacher. We just want to make sure that your belongings are returned to you!
If your child has had any recent immunizations please bring in a new copy of his/her immunization card. Also, if your child is exempt from any or all immunizations we need an exemption form on file. Please talk to Beth or Kori with any questions.
You can still enroll your child for class this semester. Tippy Toes meets on Tuesdays at 2:30 and the cost is $33 per month. (She offers a substantial discount to our students). If this is something you would like your child to experience, please talk with Beth or Kori.
Toys from Home: We do not have a show and tell time as part of our curriculum. Please do not allow your child to bring toys or personal belongings to school. It creates problems for those students that know the “NO TOYS” policy. There is an exception to this rule: if your child has an item related to the theme to share with the class and the teacher has prior knowledge about the item so that she may plan for it, then it will be okay. The teachers welcome sharing when approached in this manner
Peace and Love -
Beth, Kori, Cynthia, Sheri, Jini, Danielle, Taylor, Collin, Serena, and Kendra
