WARD AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM
JANUARY 2020 NEWSLETTER
Our first annual Trivia Night was a HUGE success! It often seems that if you are in charge of planning an event, you probably won’t get to enjoy the festivities too much. Well, that was certainly NOT the case for Trivia Night! I had such a wonderful time and was so happy to see so many wonderful people from After-School’s current and past community. James was an incredible host and certainly challenged the crowd with some tough trivia!
(1) Kristin is very busy planning a fun week of “Island Adventures” for our February Vacation Camp. Spots have filled up incredibly fast, so I would recommend returning yours asap if you are interested. The camp is open Tues-Fri, 8:30-5:30. You can sign up for single day(s) or for the four-day week.
(2) A HUGE thanks to one of our supporters of Trivia Night…After-School parent Natasha Casillo and the Courtyard Marriot North End. During February break, they are running a “Storytime with Elsa” event. They are offering a 10% discount to Ward After-School families (mention when booking - snapshot below, but see attached for a better view). Check it out!
THE AFTER-SCHOOL PLAY!
Reminder: The date of the After-School play has changed to Tuesday, April 7. The mandatory dress rehearsals will be on Friday, April 3 and Monday, April 6.
The cast has begun rehearsing and they are doing a GREAT job!! We are more than impressed with their dedication and enthusiasm. Please remember that your child must be present on their rehearsal days. It’s no small feat that Liz and team put up a show with 60+ kids, so having the actors present for rehearsals of course makes the process much smoother!
TUITION FOR MARCH, APRIL, MAY
At the beginning of February, you will receive the last invoice for this school year. This tuition period covers March, April and May. Reminder: After-School relies on tuition, so late payments jeopardize the well-being of our program. The due date is March 1, and late payments will be subject to penalties and fines, including being wait-listed for 2020-2021.
Speaking of 2020-2021, we will plan on accepting applications during the month of March. Stay tuned to my newsletter and other email communications for information.
If you know of any friends or neighbors with incoming kindergartners, please tell them about our program and to get in touch with me soon!
Thank you for reading our newsletter! It helps us run a smoother program! 😊
