Our School

Wishing you and yours a very happy, healthy and safe holiday season!

Dear Families:

Our November Food Drive was a wonderful success. All donations went to Help for People, the local food bank. We had almost 630 food items! Thank you to all who donated, no matter how small. It made a very big impact. They were very thankful and put together multiple baskets to hand out with the Thanksgiving turkeys.

December is sure to be a busy month! We would like to wish you and your family a most joyous holiday season.

Curriculum News…. Our theme this month is Season of Kindness, Holiday Around the World and The Polar Express. For the entire month of December, and in the spirit of Tutor Time Melville’s “Season of Kindness”, we will be hosting a Hat, Mitten and Scarf Drive. New or lightly worn please. We hope it will help those who need it most during this cold winter season ahead. There will be a box at the front lobby for all donations. Please check out the December Tutor Times Calendar for the Song of the Month, our Grow Fit Yoga poses, as well as our colors, shapes, letters, and sight words that we will be focusing on.

December 3rd through December 17th, we will be collecting new wrapped toys. Once again, Tutor Time is partnering with Team Green, an organization for supporting the development of children through sports. The Green family is also a family here at Tutor Time Melville. The toys will benefit children who are less fortunate and will be distributed by Santa Claus at the Wyandanch Youth Center holiday party. Please place a tag on the wrapped toy noting if the gift is for a girl or a boy and the age range it would be for.

Join us on December 7th from 6:15 pm-7:15pm for Tutor Time’s Polar Express Night! All families are welcome to attend. We will be having a hot chocolate bar, a DJ for singing and dancing, and crafts for the children. We will also have two stations for photos: one with Santa Claus and his elf, Scout and the other with our snowmen. Please remember, we have full access to the parking lot next door at Gossips and against our building at KFC. Sign up at the front desk to RSVP and to sign up to bring a dessert, fruit, or drink.

As a friendly reminder, we are closing early Monday, December 24th by 3:00 pm, and CLOSED Tuesday, December 25th for Christmas Day, We have amended opening hours for Wednesday, December 26th, at 8:00 am. We will be closing early Monday, December 31st by 3:00 pm for New Years Eve, and we are CLOSED Tuesday, January 1st, for New Years Day. We are back to normal business hours Tuesday, January 2nd.
