Empower Plus Program Update
Over the last few months we have been working hard to incorporate the Empower Plus Program in our center. The goal of this program is to help children to develop healthy habits and to prevent obesity by having more physical activity, having less screen time, and by making healthy food choices.
We are limiting screen time, and promoting physical movement. We have provided more equipment for our teachers to have "Music & Movement" time in their rooms. Teachers are incorporating directed physical activities on the playground that will help keep the children active. Computer and screen time is limited to 30 minutes per week with the exception of some educational computer programs.
Please join us in our effort to develop "Healthy Habits". Here are some things you can do as a family:
Recipe for a Healthy Weekend;
Limit TV time
Eat meals as a family
Eat fruits and vegetables
Take a walk outside together
Read a book inside together
Get a good night's sleep
Try these creative moves to liven up your time at home.
Animal Moves- As your child is picking up his toys, call
out the name of a fast-moving creature, like a bee, and move like
that creature as you work together (Hop like a bunny, waddle like a duck, leap like a frog, and slither like a snake). As you are getting ready for bed, you might move like an elephant or a turtle to help your child calm down. Have fun!
Just a reminder that twice a year a supply fee is charged per student. You are charged at registration, and again in February. On your February statement a $50 supply fee will be added per student.
Rodeo Days Break for PDO and Morning PS students is February 20 and 21. The center is open with regular programs for our Full Day students. If you are a PDO parent and would like to have your child attend one or both days, please contact the office. Space for your student is subject to availability.
Re-enrollment for the 2014-2015 school year starts March 3, 2014 and Open Enrollment for the 2014-2015 year starts March 17, 2014.

Greetings from the KCCP Teachers and Staff!
December is upon us. As we close the 2013 year we are so thankful for all God has provided for us. As we anticipate the celebration of the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ we are reminded of the true meaning of Christmas. The greatest gift of all was provided for all of us, the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ.
We would like to invite all of you to the Casas Church Christmas Eve services. There are three to choose from, 3 pm, 5 pm and 7 pm. After the services, there will be special opportunities for you and your family to enjoy cookies, hot chocolate, and a fun family photo booth, not to mention snow! Yes, a snow machine will be creating a festive mood. Come join us for a great evening of celebration.

Tis the Season to Update Student's Change of Clothing
Sometimes children have “accidents” at school that make it necessary to have a change of clothing. We ask that you always send a change of clothing and make sure that the clothing changes with the season and your child’s growing bodies. Sometimes we need even more than one change of clothing. Teachers try to keep a few extra items in their classroom for just these occasions. We would like to have the following items of children’s clothing to keep on hand and maybe as your children outgrow their clothing you could donate an item or two.
Close toed shoes; Socks; Underwear; Pants/shorts; Shirts; Jackets

It is imperative that you sign your student in and out every day. If you are dropping off between 7 am and 8 am please sign your student in on the blue sign in sheet. If you are dropping off from 8 am to 3 pm only, sign in on the white sign in sheet. State regulation requires us to have your signature on the designated sheets every day your child attends. Please be sure you are writing in the time you arrive and the time you pick up, with a signature on the appropriate page every day. We appreciate your assistance with this.
Before and After Care Charges:
Charges for before and after care are at a rate of $4 per hour. We charge only for time used at a rate of $1 for every 15 minutes. This will show as a separate entry on your statement. While we post time daily, it will reflect on your statement as a one time charge for a weeks worth of use. We post before and after care on Monday for the prior week. If a month ends mid week, I will post your charges to the last day of that month.
