Yes, Halloween is here and now that you've spent a small fortune on a costume (seriously an old sheet with cut out holes for eyes was good enough for us!), your paycheck on candy, and started to google Thursday's temps every other hour - you are finally ready to hit the streets and scare some ghosts away.
Good news for anyone that has had to wade through deep water and ice to pick up their child from the Club or any of the pre-schools based at Al Tahoe - the parking lot is getting a face lift. Thomas Hain and Company are currently employed by LTUSD to expand the drainage capacity for the parking lot and prevent the large water build up we have seen over past winters. The parking lot will also be regraded to create a downhill slope towards the drain that will help with water run-off. However, they will not be able to eradicate the big dip in the far side of the lot as that is caused by tree roots.
The beginning of the school year and the beginning of summer are always heart wrenching for the Club's admin team as we are forced to set parameters for what is a safe and manageable number of children at our program. Unfortunately, due to our growth in popularity and need for the program, this means that some families - some who have been with us for years - end up on the wait list.
It is hard to believe that we only have one and a half weeks of summer left, but thanks to Lisa Maloff, we will once again be ending summer in style. Our end of summer party will be held on Friday the 16th August from 10-4 and all Club members are invited; whole year, summer only and after-school only. Parents are invited too! The party is a week earlier this year to avoid conflict with the LTUSD back to school events and any last minute school supply shopping that you have to do.
