Hello TREA families! It’s hard to believe we’re already closing out March. As a reminder, tuition is due next week! Also, next week the link to official registration for the 2017-2018 school year will be emailed to families that completed a pre-registration form. All registration forms will be done online, and only the documents containing more personal information (medical and financial) will need to be printed. If there are no changes to your child’s medical information and you are not enrolling a new student, you will only need to print the financial document. All official registration correspondence needs to be submitted to me either in person or via mail (along with the $75 supply fee per family, $25 supply fee per child and first month of tuition) no later than May 15. Each grade level at the Cedar Park location has only 1-3 spots remaining and your student/s placement needs to be finalized. I appreciate your understanding and please let me know if you need additional time to pay the fees.
Thank you for your commitment to the program. I am thrilled to have younger siblings join us, and a big thank you for referring your friends! I appreciate our TREA families so much and adore your kiddos. What a blessing to see so many grow with TREA!
April will bring some new challenges, and by that I mean fruit and vegetable challenges. Each week during the month of April students at both TREA campuses get points for each type of fresh (off the vine and not processed) fruit or vegetable they bring for lunch (and at least try). This week your child came home with a fruit/veggie handout and we talked about eating a rainbow of colors…from the “garden”. This handout will serve as a great guideline as students are challenged to bring a variety in color of nutrient packed goodness in their lunches. Teachers (and possibly our older student leaders) will tally and record the numbers on a chart during each lunch. At the end of the four weeks, students with the highest numbers will be awarded a prize. Check out the benefits of “eating the rainbow” and let’s have fun with this!
Next week, please look for the “blues” – the large blue bucket of ‘lost’ items and the blue tuition drop box. Unlabeled jackets, water bottles, lunchboxes, pencil boxes and more are increasing in number. Please help us find their way home!
Lastly, below is a link to local 5k Run/walk. Some of our families already live in this neighborhood and there will be many fun activities for kiddos during the afternoon festival. If you know of a youth group, for example Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts or any sports team that may need volunteer hours, or if you know of anyone who would like to serve our community, I am looking for volunteers to guard the crosswalks and help at water stations for our thirsty runners and walkers. Also, if any of you would like to sign up for a vendor booth for your family’s business, I can send out the free sign-up link again. As far as the 5K run/walk, kids ages 10 and under run for free with an adult participant. I’d love to see our TREA kiddos out there getting fit with moms and dads!
I know I’ve given you a lot of information, so please let me know if you have any questions. Have a wonderful Friday and weekend!
Blessings, Angela Turner, Director
