We are hosting a tour for parents who are interested in enrollment for their child on Saturday, January 24th, at 10:00 A.M. It is for parents only, and lasts approximately 1 3/4 hr.
Because of construction nearby, we recommend arriving about 15 minutes or so early, to allow for traffic, finding parking, and time to look through the classrooms before we get started.
We are enrolling our current families now; enrollment for new families will be Wednesday, February 4th, by appointment. Parents must attend a tour before being eligible to enroll their child.
Please call for more information: 210-826-8804. We look forward to meeting you!

PARENTS OF NEXT YEAR'S KINDERGARTNERS!
YOU ARE INVITED!
Come See What Makes
The Acorn Kindergarten
So Special and Unique!
For those parents of Kindergarten age children (Five years old before Sept. 1) that are deciding on a program for next year, we are hosting an informative meeting for you to learn more about our outstanding Kindergarten. We hope that you make this meeting a priority as you consider your choices. Our presentation will be Thursday, January 15th, at 6:15 P.M. Rich will give an overview, Kindergarten teachers Cindy Metzroth, Missy Washington, and Cindy Hinds will talk all about the curriculum and Wendy will explain our special art program. Then on Friday, January 16th, from 9:00-10:00 A.M., you can come and observe the Kindergarten children in action. During this time they will change their schedule so you can see language, reading, math, and science groups, plus calendar activities and message of the day during that hour. After this time they will have their normal morning schedule of activities.
Our Kindergarten has twenty children with three terrific teachers, a ratio that allows for lots of individual attention and teaching, and a ratio unmatched by any other school. It is so alive with learning and our Kindergarten really is the icing on the cake here at The Acorn. So we encourage all parents of next year*s Kindergarten age children to attend, and feel welcome to bring any interested friends. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact us. Thank you!
Enrollment for next school year begins January 20th for current Acorn families.

We may not have snow, but we rake and shovel and enjoy what falls on our playground
on a cool December day!
Here is a link to a great article of the importance of outdoor play.

Our Hands We Fold,
Our Heads We Bow,
For Food and Friends
We Thank Thee Now. Amen.
Each class prepared their own Thanksgiving Feast:
shucking corn, peeling potatoes and yams, snapping
green beans, grinding cranberries, making butter.
Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving! The Acorn will be
closed all week for this family holiday.
