LUCK 4K PROGRAM IS MOVING TO ALL-DAY SERVICES!!
We are excited to tell you about our new ALL-DAY 4K program beginning this September 2013!
Our 4K program is still located at the Polk County Early Learning Center in Balsam Lake with full day classrooms on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays each week. There are no classes on Wednesdays.
Luck 4K students will be picked up on our regular bus routes and brought to the Luck School Building. As always, parents still have the option to self-transport. While on the bus, they will have assigned seats in the front of the bus and will have a responsible 7-12 grade student assigned to assist them. These high school students will be earning community service hours for their assistance. We will then transport all the 4 year-olds on the bus to the Early Learning Center in Balsam Lake. An adult supervisor will travel with our 4-year-olds both to and from their classrooms at the center.
Your child’s day at the Polk County Early Learning Center will begin at approximately 8:15am and run until 3:05pm, when they will be picked up and brought back to the Luck School District to ride their regular take home bus route.
Attached is an all-day program schedule for you to refer to. As you will note, the children will all receive breakfast when they arrive in the morning. Then, the real fun begins! Music, literacy, math, problemsolving, and small and large group activities will take place throughout the day, as well as lots of time for outdoor play and free choice time so each child can explore and learn at their own pace. A lunch will be served family-style around 11:00am, with a nutritious snack provided around 2:00pm before the children leave for the day. Please remember to fill out all CACFP (food program) paperwork before the first day of school.
We, at the Luck School District see this change as a very positive step in providing a first-class 4K program in a wonderful facility that is structured specifically for 3 and 4 year-olds. I want to strongly encourage you to consider what this program has to offer, and how it can and will benefit your child’s life-long education. If you have any questions about the program, please do not hesitate to contact the Polk County Early Learning Center in Balsam Lake (Mary Nelson @ 715-485-3413) or the Luck School District (Ann Goldbach @ 715-472-2152, Ext. 109 or Rick Palmer @ 715-472-2152, Ext. 106).
