Notes from Nancy: December 2013

Posted by on January 6, 2014

Dear Bar-T Family,

The holiday season is in full swing and I love the positive energy all around us! I know you’re all busy, but I wanted to touch on a few things in this note…

Thank You for Your Generosity!

When Daniel (photographed above), Assistant Director at Rachel Carson Kids Club, told us that his Kids Club wanted to host a Toys for Tots toy drive, we were excited to see what our Bar-T families could do. Word quickly spread throughout our offices and other locations decided to participate as well! We set out boxes in hopes that a few toys would come in, but could never have dreamt of the response we received!

Yesterday, I joined members of our Bar-T team in loading up one of our buses with Toys for Tots donations (Joe and I are in the back row in the group picture!). Yes, we needed a whole bus! We were able to drop off 15 boxes, full to the brim, with toys for children in need. Toys that you donated. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.

Introducing… Camp Kids Club!

The countdown to Sochi is on and we can’t wait! In January, we’ll be taking a page from our Summer Camp playbook and hosting our own Olympic Games in our Bar-T Kids Clubs! Instead of our monthly clubs, we will embrace the Winter Olympics by exploring, creating, and participating in different themed Olympic clubs and activities.  Every day will be one that you won’t want to miss… especially our Main Events (Theme Days) on Fridays! You will be receiving more information from your Kids Club Director soon, but I’m so excited to bring some of our Summer Camp fun to our kids in the middle of the Winter!

Tell Us How We’re Doing!

As we approach the middle of the school year, it’s important for us to check in with you all and make sure your Bar-T program is meeting your needs. We’ve updated our surveys and would like to ask you to take a few moments and let us know how we’re doing.

I would also like to invite you to our Parent Council Meeting on January 15th at 6pm (at our Main Office). I invite all of you to come and join in the discussion about Bar-T this year. Childcare is provided

As always, please let us know if you have any questions or need any assistance.

Have a wonderful holiday… Happy New Year!
