Welcome to the Polka Dot        Room! 

Welcome to the Polka Dot room!

     Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year to all Polka Dot families! It is with much excitement that I look forward to getting to know all of you and my new students. 

     I am Shannon Payne and I have the pleasure of being your child’s early childhood teacher. I can’t express enough how much I love my job and working with young students.  

      If your child attends  our AM session (9:00 - 11:20) we will be starting our day on the playground and dismissing from the main entrance door.  For our PM session (12:30 - 2:50) students will be dropped off at the main entrance and we will be ending our day on the playground. We utilize three different playgrounds so just look for the polka dot flag. We go outside as long as the “feels like” temperature is above 25 degrees, so please make sure to dress your child for the weather.

     We will have snack time so please send your child with a drink and one snack. We are a nut-free building so be sure to check the ingredients list on what you send in.

     Please send your child in with a change of clothes that we can keep here in case of spills or accidents. If your child requires diapers or pull-ups, please send those in as well.

      I’m sure we will have a fun and safe year filled with learning! I know how daunting it can be to leave your littles in a new environment but I promise they are in caring hands. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at any time with questions or concerns.
