Costumes will be ordered in December. The children will be measured throughout the month of Nov. and Dec. Costumes are not made to order. We follow a guide provided to us by the costume companies. I want to remind everyone that costumes may need alterations and that is the parent’s responsibility. This may involve hemming pants/dresses or sewing on accessories.

When pulling in please drive around to the right. Please utilize the back parking spaces. To exit parking lot drive around the rear of building and exit from the left side driveway. When dropping children off, please drive around and drop off at side driveway next to side walk by door. Please do not park in the Prime Pay parking lot. This is illegal and your car may be towed. Please do not block the left side driveway. Please use caution and be aware of children when driving in the lot.
The temperatures are dropping and snow is imminent. Please be careful when walking through the parking lot/sidewalk. In case of inclement weather we DO NOT necessarily follow the school system so please check with us. Closings will be announced via email and posted on our Facebook page.
