Dear Families:

Welcome to the Season of Kindness. We are excited to celebrate World Kindness Day on November 13 and for the children and staff to share their random acts of kindness throughout the month. We are also starting our very own Kindness Wall…….

Tutor Time of Melville strives to be as active as possible in our community. From November 4 - 15, we will be hosting our annual food drive for Help for People, Inc. Help for People is a nonprofit organization to get those in need back on their feet and on their way to independent living. The classroom to collect the most donations will receive a special award. No donation is too small. Please refrain from donating any glass items and non-perishables only.

Our theme this month is Thanksgiving, Native American History, and Family. Please check out the calendar for our Fun Fridays, our monthly yoga poses, Song of the Month and special celebrated happenings. The November calendar and menu are attached.

November is also our first Parent/Teacher Conversations of the school year. This is a great way to voice your concerns, learn more about your child’s day and their progress in our program. Sign-up sheets will be posted in every classroom. We are suggesting phone conversations at nap time; however in-person conferences are also available, particularly in the older age groups.

November 21 is our Thanksgiving Family Feast! We welcome all families to join us from 6:15 – 7:15 pm for some family fun. We will have a Tutor Time turkey dinner, dessert, DJ, and a craft for the children. Please RSVP and sign-up at the front desk. Please choose to bring a side dish or a dessert to share.

As a friendly reminder, we are closed Thursday, November 28 and Friday, November 29 for the Thanksgiving holiday. We hope you enjoy the day with your family and friends.

As always, we thank you for your continued support. Be sure to check out and “like” our Facebook page for fun pictures and contests. There is no greater compliment about our school and staff than to hear your testimonial on either our website or Facebook page.

Best wishes and thanksgivings,

Lauren, Debra, Jessica and Jessica L
