I would like to thank everyone who help make the Pie Sale and the Craft Bazaar a success. We depend on your kindness and good will to support our mission with the children. Thank you, thank you, I cannot say it enough. Please know that a child will benefit from your generosity.
October ended with a bang! The school-age children joined us for our Halloween/Fall celebration. It was the first year they were here all day. It was wonderful. They brought a new dimension to the day.
November will be spent enjoying the weather, preparing for Parent Conferences and the Christmas Gathering program in December. We will be closed on Thanksgiving and the day after, so we can enjoy the holidays with family.
Mark your calendar for our Christmas Gathering on December 11 at 7:00pm. The children always put on a great show and make super cookies for refreshments. The school-age children will be making a gingerbread house display and the children will be drawing pictures of what Santa looks like. It will be a fun night. Everyone is welcome!
Do not forget, we are always collecting Labels for Education (Campbell’s Labels) and Box Tops for Education. CAWS will receive a check in December for $318.48 from Box Tops. Believe me that is a lot of box tops labels! Our Labels for Education has a total of 35150 labels that can be spent on items that they sell. Also, I would like to recognize Carolyn Parks who takes care of this program for us. She cuts out, counts, sends them in and keep track of our total for us. We appreciate all your hard working and time you spend for us. You are Super!
I hope everyone has a wonderful November and Thanksgiving holiday.

September is over. Believe it or not, it was a pretty calm month. Everyone was getting into a routine and enjoying the cooler weather. We had many new families to welcome. Enrollment is up.
On September 15, CAWS had their annual Paths to Quality rating visit. The rater observed in the classrooms and looked at documentation of our paperwork for education and training of the staff. CAWS maintained our Level 4 rating. We are very proud of our accomplishment. Continue reading
Summer is over. It has been a busy time. We have been through the transition of the children going back to school. We were sad yet happy, too. We had to say good-bye to children who have been with us and now they have begun their “School Life”. A couple of these children have been with us since they were 2 years old. But on the other hand, we are so happy because we get to meet new children and their families. We welcome all our new families and hope they have a wonderful experience at CAWS. Continue reading
Summer has been busy and wonderful, but it is now half over. We are doing great things at the center. The school-age children have been swimming, going to the library, making light-houses, robots, chocolate candy, peace sign key chains and doing face painting. We have tried to keep them busy. They seem to be en-joying their summer with us. Continue reading
April was a terrific month. We celebrated the “Month
of the Young Child”. It was so much fun. We had crazy
hair day, smile day, pj. day, mix/match day and of course,
purple day. Some of the other events were a puppet show with
a performance of a Soup Opera and “Itsy, Bitsy Spider” that
had fake rain. The children enjoyed it. Continue reading
For the month of April we are going to be really busy. April is the Month Of The Young Child, which means if you come around the church during the day, you might see the children in some unusual outfits. Some things we like to do are, Crazy Hair Day, Costume Day, Mix Match Day and a few new activities will be Green Day for Earth Day and Puppet Show Day. Also, in April we are having our annual Bunny Pictures with Stellhorn Photos, on Thursday April 10th, from 10:00 to 11:30.

Well, we survived February’s weather. We can only hope March will be better. We are on our way to Spring. It has been a tough winter on eve-ryone. At least, the children are happy. They are hoping they can go outside on a daily basis. Continue reading
October is done. We had some beautiful days, didn’t we? The trees are turning brilliant colors. There is a red tree on Lake at the park that I have been watching. The month ended with one of my favorite holidays – Hallow-een. Love to see the children get dressed up. They are just pre-cious and they are so excited. But the holiday is not just for children. We, adults like to dress up, too!
October brought us two annual events: The Pie Sale and the Creative Craft Bazaar. I hope everyone had a chance to order some pies. These are wonderful pies at a good price plus CAWS receives the profits. Also, the pies are easy to take to family gatherings and office parties. The pies will arrive on November 19 and can be picked up from 4:00 – 5:30 just in time for Thanksgiving.
Also, CAWS had it’s 4th Creative Craft Bazaar. It started out slow with the cool temperature and rain but we did better after the weather cleared. I want to thank those who donated baked goods to CAWS. Also, I would like to thank everyone who volunteered their time to make the bazaar a success. We
appreciate your support and thanks does not seem to be enough. We could not have done it without you.
In addition, October gave us – School pictures, Chapel Time on Wednesdays, work done to the playground and Halloween celebrations.
As November begins, we will prepare for Thanksgiving and the pies orders to arrive. We will celebrate Fall, harvest time and the children will learn about everything that pertains to the changing of the seasons. Also, we will have parent confer-ence during the third week of the month to inform parents how their child is doing.
The children and the teachers will begin practicing their songs and finger plays for CAWS’ Annual Christmas Gathering. It will be Thursday, December 12 at 7:00pm. Everyone is invited to hear the children, have cookies and punch afterward, and see Jolly Ol’ Saint Nicholas. Come join the festivities. So mark your calendar.
I hope you have a great month and Thanksgiving.
