Parent News            July 2015

Imformation Update 

Once a year we are required to update emergency information on every child. If you began at COSKids before January of 2015, please stop by the office and check your emergency card. EVERY card must be updated, signed and dated.

Thank you for your help with this.

Matthews Alive!

Each year COSKids volunteers in one of the game booths during Matthews Alive!. In return we receive a donation from Matthews Alive! for our help. Donations from organizations like this help us to not only equip single working parents but also keep other costs at the center as low as possible. 

Volunteers are needed and the slots are approximately 2 hours each. What you will be doing is taking tickets, running the game (which is VERY simple) and handing out prizes.  

Sign up by using Sign-Up Genius (click here).

As always, thank you for your support. 

Staff Development Day ~ 

Please make sure to mark your calendar for August 21st. COSKids will be closed for our staff development day. This is the day that we set aside each year for staff training and time in the classroom to organize and clean. 

Summer Days...

We are in the midst of hot summer days. Don't forget to sunscreen your little one each day. We go for walks and play on the playground whenever we can.

On water days...  

Children should come dressed in their swimsuit under their clothes. Make sure to apply sunscreen at home and we will reapply in the afternoon (if you brought some in for your child.)

Bring with you ~ 
  • water shoes (no flip flops please) or a change of shoes
  • towel
  • change of clothes
Wednesdays - Owls, Dragonflies, Zebras
Thursdays - Flamingos, Giraffes, Dolphins, Lions
Fridays - Elephants, Tigers

Change in Status ~ 

COSKids requires a two week notice if your status is changing (ie., you are leaving, you need to change the number of days attending). Please notify the office of any changes.

Sunscreen ~ 

If you have not already, please bring sunscreen for your child. We ask that you bring lotion NOT aerosol cans. The health regulations make it difficult for us to have aerosol cans in the classrooms.  

For creams, please stop by the office or atrium desk and pick up a lotion form to attach.  

E-Payment ~ 

Please consider doing e-payment using your credit or debit card. It's convenient, safe and automatic. Simply fill out the attached paperwork and bring it by the office (copies are available in the office also).  Your payments will be posted each Friday. 

Not only are e-payments convenient but COSKids saves $ too because the cost is lower than processing a credit/debit card through the machine in the office or via PayPal.  

Welcome Kim

Ms. Kim joined COSKids in June as an afternoon float/closer; she will be closing the Flamingos. Kim has an Associates Degree from CPCC and is currently working on her Bachelor's Degree in Science. Kim has experience working in retail and as a Certified Nurse Assistant. 
July Teacher of the Month ~ 
Congratulations goes to Sherell Davis. Sherell began working at COSKids in 2013. She works hard to keep the daily sheets accurate and follow multiple schedules that parents set for their infants.
Remind 101

Take time to sign up for text messages and reminders from COSKids. Simply text @COSKids to 81010 and you will receive infrequent messages that are important, such as closing reminders or emergencies that effect the whole campus.
With hellos come good-byes. In June we said goodbye to Ms. Crystal. We wish her well in the future and will miss her strong work ethic and love for the children.

Looking for ~ 

We are looking for a few items for classrooms and play... 

Cozy Coops or other ride on type toys 
Digital Cameras 
Cell Phones
Outdated iPads, iPods or other devices

(Some items can be turned in by COSKids to a recycling program that gives us cash for classroom materials.)
