Important “NUGGETS”…

As the children return to the Extended Care Program each child needs the following:
*PENCIL CASE filled with SUPPLIES (pencils, colors, etc.)
*ACTIVITIES to play with. No supplies can be shared, as we need to maintain social distancing at all times
*NO POKEMON CARDS, as the kiddos are inclined to gather close together when playing with them

Thanks so much 🙂
