Weekly Newsletter Apr 26, 2021

We begin the last week of April this coming week, which means we have less than one month left in the instructional year. We are encouraging our staff to maintain the academic integrity of their programs as we embark on the last few weeks of school. We are slowly transitioning to allowing for infants through two-year-old parents in the building beginning June 1st. Although parents will remain in the hallways, we hope this provides a more “open feel” at Collage Day School.

We are still welcoming Parent Ambassadors to assist with National Teacher Appreciation Week, which begins one week (May 3rd). My goal is to shower our staff with as much appreciation as possible to thank them for all they do for our students. I am truly appreciative to be a part of this team. Parent Ambassadors can provide a monetary donation or donate small trinkets for our staff. Please contact clark@collagedayschool.org to donate.

Our summer programming is rapidly approaching. We are currently scheduling onsite field trips with MOSH, St. Augustine Aquarium, and St. Augustine Alligator Farm. Some of our age groups are waitlisted. I encourage you to continue applying to attempt to allocate more staff and move students off the waitlist.

We continue to progress towards the online auction we are looking to have the week of August 2nd. Please contact clark@collagedayschool.org if you would like to donate vacation rentals, basket items, or other memorabilia we can auction. Finally, we are working on preliminary plans for our first annual golf tournament. We are currently in contact with local golf clubs to look at rates and availability. Our goal is to have the tournament in October. We will keep you updated. All proceeds will go towards the new outdoor pavilion we aspire to build for our students.
