PICTURE DAY. 05/06/2022.
Great those pearly whites sparkly and ready! Children should come to school already dressed-up. If you are sending a change of clothing for your children, please make sure everything is labeled and kept in a bag. We will not serve breakfast on this day to avoid clothes from getting dirty, so please make sure to serve breakfast to your children before coming to school. We will serve them snack right after their pictures are taken.
FINALLY, we are back! We cannot wait to see all our children perform on stage and sing their heart out! We will close at 12:30 pm on this day to give everyone enough time to prepare for the show. Our Rainbow Class graduates need to be at the venue by 5:30 pm. The show begins promptly at 6:00 pm. The rest of the students need to be there by 5:45 pm.
A separate sheet will be sent out to inform you of what the children are to wear for the show. Everyone is invited. Come one, come all!!! There is ample parking available but as mentioned please come early enough, so we can start on time.
Traditionally, we always set-up a festive reception right after the show. However, this year, due to COVID, we plan to serve commercially bought and prepackaged sandwiches and such. To help offset our expenses for the show, we will be needing your help. We ask every family to help us with our two-week fundraising through BOON SUPPLY Catalog shopping. This company offers many eco-conscious product mix, which are both seasonally designed and sustainably sourced. With every purchase, you give 40% back to the school. It really is a win-win situation. What a perfect excuse to give useful gifts for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day! This short fundraising event will run from April 15 – 30th. Thank you in advance for your support.
SPRING CLEANING. Please keep our school in mind as you do your spring cleaning at home and office. We are always in need of scrap paper and art supplies for our art & writing areas, as well as, children’s books for our classroom libraries. Few parents have asked what items we can use in the school; we always suggest children’s puzzles, dress-up clothes, pretend toys (dishes, food, construction, etc…), wooden toys, stacking toys, and coloring books. Unfortunately, we cannot take stuffed animals (head lice contamination) or small toy items (choke hazard), as per DCFS regulation. Happy cleaning!

APRIL SHOWERS BRING MAY FLOWERS
Yeah!!! SPRING HAS ARRIVED! With the amount of rainfall we have had thus far, we are sure to expect a “field” full of lush greeneries and splashes of flowery sceneries! We just LOVE spring time. April and spring just go inseparably. Indeed, it is the season of new beginnings and restoration.
This year, April is also the month of Easter, Passover, Ramadan, spring cleaning, prom season, and so much more…. At Kids In Harmony, as we focus on the many teachable concepts “SPRING” has to offer; we have been taking advantage of the glorious warmer weather here and there --- exploring and spending more time outdoors. We encourage everyone to bring in flowers (wave petunia or Marigold), spikes, or vegetables (tomato or bell pepper) that we can use to plant in our playground on Earth Day. Bring them to school on or before Friday, April 22nd --- as the children help in beautifying our play area.
Speaking of warmer days, please be informed that we are now busy preparing themes and activities for Summer 2022 at KIH. Since COVID hit two years ago, our children missed many opportunities to travel, explore and simply have fun outside the school. We are finally able to do so this year and could not be more excited! To those who are not yet familiar with our summer schedule, we generally keep the same school hours during the summer. The only things added are field trips (Jellybean and Rainbow Classes) and Classroom Entertainments (Dragonfly and Bubblegum Class). We require a one-time fee per child that covers expenses for the entire summer (transportation fee, lunch, admission, KIH shirt and entertainers’ fee):
Dragonfly & Bubblegum Student - $100.00
Jellybean & Rainbow Student - $185.00
This fee is due by May 6th, Friday. There is NO increase in the weekly tuition. A separate information sheet (which will include weekly themes and activities) will be sent out, as soon as trips and entertainments are confirmed.
Given that we only have limited space available at KIH, please let us know about your summer plans for your children. Our waiting list is growing, as we continue to receive numerous phone calls from families looking to enroll. However, our current families will always be our priority. As always, we thank you for your cooperation and patronage.
Always reference our school calendar for upcoming events and school days off, so that you are able to plan accordingly.
