Welcome back to another year at Piptree Mt Gravatt East.
We all hope that you had a fabulous break and enjoyed some lovely family time and created beautiful memories with your families.
I'd also like to extend a very warm welcome to all the new families that have joined us this year.
What a fun and eventful year we have planned for you!
Please feel free to come see me with any questions you may have. Alternatively you can email me if I am unavailable.
For all our new parents that are not sure of how it works yet, statements will be sent out on a fortnightly basis on a Monday.
Please ensure you check these and let me know if there are any issues. Although I do my best to ensure the correct amount is scheduled to come out of your account and that it is kept up to date, however if something changes on your account unexpectedly it is easier to pick up if we work together!
If you are unsure of how to read your statements, please don't hesitate to come see me or call me, and I'd be more than happy to help.
As you may be aware, it is nearly time for our 2018 Poppie graduates to head off to big school.
This is also when our 2019 transitions will be happening.
If your child is due to move up to the next room, this will happen from the 29th January.
Introductions to the next rooms started late last year, and are continuing at different times of the day throughout the week.
It is with great excitement that I inform you all of a change also happening in the next couple of weeks.
We have chosen Educa as our online documentation software and we cannot wait to share it with you.
As of 29th of January, all of our documentation (learning stories, child portfolios, planning, curriculum linking, assessments and teacher portfolios) will all be online!
The Educators and I are currently working to set it up and get to know our way around the program.
Invites will be sent out soon via email so keep an eye out.
In the meantime, click on the link below to find out more information and have a look around.
To assist you in this transition, we will be having a parent information night on the 30th of January from 6.30pm where you will get the chance to go through the program with us and ask any questions you may have relating to the transition or programming in general. More information on this to come soon!
Our 2019 calendar of events has now been finalised!
Keep a look out next week, as this will be on display in the foyer.
