Letter from the Director
Dear Parents,
Now that the holiday season is upon us, the staff at Carousel House School wants you to know how grateful we are for all of you and for the trust you place in us to educate, support, and care for your children.  Our family community is what makes this job worthwhile for all of us! (Because otherwise, the boss is mean, the pay is low, and there are no fringe benefits unless you count aerobic activity and the opportunity to grow your patience to amazing degrees- ok, lots of hugs and laughs, too.)
The theme for these two months is giving! Let's emphasize our community and what we can do for each other and for those less fortunate than ourselves.
In keeping with this idea, we are not stressing holiday parties, but rather a lunch time where we all gather to share our presence and attention with each other.  We ask all our families to donate food for the Miami Valley Holiday Aid. And we share our gratitude with each other! Have a relaxed, blessed, and happy holiday! See you in 2015!

Miami Valley Holiday Aid
We will have a barrel for non-perishable food items in our front hallway in December.  The food you donate will go to various foodbanks in the Miami Valley to distribute to families in need throughout the holidays.
Our goal is to completely fill the barrel by the pickup date: Tuesday, December 16th!
This important project helps us to keep the focus on giving during the Christmas season.  We have been happy to be a part of this program for many, many years and appreciate your generosity in helping fill our barrel.

Holiday Lunch Gathering: Wednesday, December 17th 11:30-12:30
Our annual Holiday Luncheon will be held on December 17th, the last Wednesday before our Holiday Break.  We invite you all to come and have lunch with your child in our Big Room.  You bring the lunch for yourself and your student. We all bring a plate of Christmas cookies to share for dessert! We'll also have iced tea and water available for lunch.
Our lunch period is one hour from 11:30 to 12:30.  Please plan to arrive by 11:30.  On this day, it is ok to bring in fast food, pizza,  or whatever you may wish to share with your child.
We do ask that you fill out the RSVP form so we know how many people to expect and can have tables set up in advance to accommodate all families and friends attending.  Since this is a regular school day for us, we will also have a sign-up sheet for volunteers who will help us take the tables down after the luncheon.
RSVP forms will go home in December. Please return your reservation to a teacher by Friday, December 13th.  We look forward to seeing you!


Healthy snacks come from home. Students who come all day have two snack times, once in the middle of morning class, and another in the middle of afternoon class. Limit cookies, candy and fruit snacks, please.
