Good Evening Everyone,
Tomorrow is the first day of Community Connections After-school Program at UES

When you pick up your child and come through the main doors of the school, you will walk straight to the door by the main office. On the wall, you will see the group schedule. There you will find the times and location of each group. Please make sure you sign your child out of the program.

I am available during school hours if you have any changes in schedule or you have questions. Contact me by phone or email. I am looking forward to meeting you all tomorrow.

End of the year Letter to parents

June 19, 2017

Dear Parent /Guardians,

As the CC school year comes to a close I want to take a moment to say thanks.

Thank you for sharing your pride and joy with us.  We have done our best to keep your child safe and happy this year. We have enjoyed all the hugs, smiles, and kind words your child has shared with us.

Thank you for supporting our efforts. Thank you for your emails, phone call, and notes. Thank you for always keeping us informed on changes in schedule, behavior, family issues and when your child is absent or sick. Thank you for taking the time to talk to us and just stopping by to say hi. Those are special moments we will cherish.

Thank you so much for your support in Community Connections. We are so grateful to have a wonderful group of caring parents. And last but not least thank you for loving your child.  Have a fantastic summer!
