1956 Admission Letter

Dear Patron:

              The Hopewell School of Childhood will begin its EIGHTH session on Tuesday September 4, 1956.

              This is to advise that I am saving a reservation for your child and you will find your enrollment blank enclosed. If for any reason you will not need the reservation, please advise me promptly by calling CE— 2846—otherwise bring it with you Thursday, August 30. There will be no school Monday, September 3, but patrons are asked to bring their children, complete their enrollment, and visit the schoolroom, Thursday, August 30, from 10 to 12 a.m. and from 4 to 5 p.m. It is requested that all hats, coats, leggings, gloves, galoshes and lunch box or bag be plainly marked with the child’s name. This is necessary because very young children do not recognize their possessions among so many similar ones.

            Every morning at ten thirty we have our “Tea Party” period. The children bring a very light lunch from home and during this time they are taught table etiquette and social adjustment with a group.

It is possible for your child to bring us a cold as well as get one from contact with us. So, if your child has a cold, please keep him/her at home for 48 hours or until he/she is sufficiently well to be with other children. Should your child be exposed to any of the children’s diseases, if you would tell me immediately, I can advise you about the incubation period and when to keep him/her isolated.

If we work together, I feel sure that we will have a happier, healthier group of children.

We will have four parties for the year, Halloween, Christmas, Valentine and Easter. Please do not sent gifts for Christmas.
