Our School

“Be silly, be honest, be kind." Ralph Waldo Emerson

Dear Families:

February 2020 is here and off to a lovely start! Our February Tutor Times Calendar is available on our website, at the check-in kiosk and always posted in every classroom on the Family Wall. Check out the Fun Fridays and other special events where the entire school can participate together.

This month’s theme is Love, Valentine’s Day, Multiculturalism, and Dental Health. Every Wednesday, we will focus on moving our bodies! Yoga, obstacle courses, musical chairs and dancing is sure to bring up our energy level. Our song of the month is “I’m a Little Valentine”.

Music with Miss Laurie will continue to bring new and theme related songs to the children’s already growing repertoire every Monday morning. A copy of our February songs is available on our website under News and Events. Easy, fun and short tunes to sing in the car on the way to or from Tutor Time!

From February 3 - 14, we are hosting a “For the Love of Animals Donation Drive”. All donations will go to the Little Shelter Animal Rescue and Adoption Shelter in Huntington. They are a non-profit, non-terminal animal shelter that operates strictly on the community’s donations. They specifically are in desperate need for: laundry detergent, poop bags, dog beds, SOFT dog and cat treats. Currently, they do not need food, blankets or towels. They are so appreciative of our help and look forward to seeing our school when they pick up the donations on February 14.

In honor of a student who attended our Two’s program, we will have a bake sale the week of February 10 - 14. All monies raised will be donated to the Cooley’s Anemia Foundation. Our student Zayna was a cherished little girl who loved attending Tutor Time and passed away on January 8, 2015. She was born with Thalassemia Major and had a lifelong battle of weekly blood transfusions. Each year, we keep her memory alive and donate to her foundation. We keep in touch with her mom who is forever grateful for all donations. Wear purple on February 13th.

Important dates: Valentine’s Day class parties are on February 14. Wear red to school! New this year, we will dress like Mr. Roger to celebrate the premier of Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood on Friday, February 21. Just a reminder that we are closed on President’s Day, Monday, February 21.

Tutor Time Melville is a special place to be! Thank you for your continued support in our school. Families are truly the backbone of our program. We look forward to a wonderful year singing, dancing, playing and learning.

All my best,

Lauren Salatti
