April Monthly Packet
A Note From the Director
As we celebrate a season of renewal we would like to warmly welcome Sam McLaren-Fahey as St. Mary Child Care Center’s new Office Manager. Our center will miss MaryAnn who has become such an important part of our child care family. She won’t be far away as she will be taking on the position of Office Manager at Montessori Center of Our Lady. We all wish her the very best. We are excited however, to have Sam join our SMCCC team! We are confident that she will transition smoothly into her new position. As Sam continues to familiarize herself with all of the new faces, please be patient and have picture identification ready when picking up your child through out the day.
Thank you to all of our parents who graciously donated treats for the Easter Bunny visit and Easter hunt on 3.29.18. I anticipate that all of the children will thoroughly enjoy the Easter festivities planned in each classroom. Remember SMCCC will be closed in observance of Good Friday on 3.30.18. Please inform Sam if your child will be absent during the Easter holiday so that we may adequately adjust staffing in our classrooms.
On 4.6.18 we will honor our Detroit Tigers with a special hotdog lunch. This celebratory lunch will be made available to the children in classrooms 7-9 and include all of the teachers at our center. Help us celebrate our home team by wearing your Tiger gear and feel free to stop in for a hotdog with your child. Lunch generally begins at 11:30am. However, check with your child’s room for specific details.
Our next Parent Action Committee meeting has been scheduled for Thursday 4.12.18 at 4pm. I am excited to have the opportunity to talk to you and discover all of the details surrounding this important committee. I hope everyone is able to attend. If you would like to join this committee, you are welcome to attend!
Graduation Pictures for our Kindergarten Readiness children in Room 9 will take place on Thursday 4.26.18. Please look for additional information regarding picture day and future graduation preparation from the classroom teacher sometime prior to picture day.
The Daily Connect App has now been made available to all parents in Room 8. Ms. Becca will be able to provide parents with e-mail paperwork and information regarding setting up your account and accessing your child’s portal. As our teachers and parents maneuver their way through this link, please let us know if you are experiencing any problems. Additional Daily Connect forms can also be found at the front desk if needed.

Please be patient as we work towards identifying a new Program Director for St. Mary Child Care Center. Although this process can be a tedious one, it is absolutely necessary in order for us to achieve our goal and select a person who is highly qualified and will successfully lead SMCCC into the future. I appreciate your understanding and your continued support. In the meantime, the Director’s door remains open to those with any questions or concerns. Your child’s care remains our top priority. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can assist you in any way during this transitional period.
I am truly grateful to be a part of your family each day, this wonderful child care center and the amazing teachers within it!
Wishing you and your family a very happy and blessed Easter.
