SVCC has been very busy recently with the approval of the Lower Saucon Parks Summer Program.  Families that live in Lower Saucon Township can sign their school age children up for an outdoor recreational  4 week program either at Townhall Park or Southeastern Park.  SVCC is also signing up families who want their School Age children to attend the center for the Summer School Age Program.  We have hired a Lifeguard and plan to go to the pool M W and F this summer.  If your child will NOT be here this summer please let us know. Also, if you know any young people looking for summer work send them my way-we are hiring for the Parks program and our summer school age program.

On this date, May 25th, the Center will close at 5:00 PM to support SVCC staff to attend the awards ceremony to receive this award as a team. This is a true honor for the community center and our teachers truly deserve this award.  Thank you in advance for making arrangements to pick up your children by 5:00 on this date: Tuesday, May 25, 2021 to enable the teachers to attend.   

Congratulations to our team and all the other award recipients!

-Schools are closed  5/28/2021-we will provide full day care for the school age children.  Let us know if you will be here that day-bring your lunch.

-May 31, 2021Memorial Day, we will be closed.  We reopen on June 1st.

-Remember to return your Sunscreen Permission forms with a labeled bottle of sunscreen

-Footwear:  please make sure your child, Toddler, Preschool/PreK and School Age, are wearing safe, closed toe shoes with a non-slip sole.  When the children play outside they do a lot of running, climbing, jumping etc which is difficult to do in flip flops,  rubber thongs, athletic slides, wedge sandals, dress sandals, some crocs etc.  You should choose shoes that have toe/foot coverage, support the foot and have a sturdy rubber bottom such as:  sneakers, hiking shoes, closed toe hiking/water/sport sandals, flat, sturdy slip ons.  It’s more about safe function instead of fashion.

-Snack/Lunch Reminder – We are a tree nut/peanut free center.  We still have children bringing lunchables with Reese’s peanut butter cups or lunches with peanut butter/ jelly sandwiches (use WOW Butter please) cookies with peanut butter, granola bars with nuts etc.  Nut allergies are life threatening and we must enforce a  “nut free”  center.  Thank you for your support and I am sure the parents with children who have this allergy also thank you.  We also have an egg allergy which includes eating baked goods with eggs in the mix.  Check with teachers before bringing in baked goodies for the classroom.

-May 21st is “National Pizza Party Day”!

-June 4th is the last day of school and “National Doughnut Day”!

-Our thanks to all who remembered the teachers here at SVCC for Teacher Appreciation Week.  It means a lot.

Warm Regards,
Roberta Blackwell
