Free Oral Health Check on December 9th at 10:00 a.m.
A screening by Dr. Keith Tam, DDS will involve an educational component in regards to oral hygiene as well as a brief visual exam in order to ascertain your child's oral health status. Dr. Tam recently opened his practice in Santa Maria. He earned a Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the USC School of Dentistry as a pediatric dentist. Dr. Tam is highly qualified to treat infants through young adults including those with special needs. An oral health screening consent and recommendation form is being sent home for parent authorization. Please return the form on or before the December 9th screening if you are interested in having this screening done.
We are hoping all parents will particpate in the peeler fundraiser. The funds raised from this fundraiser will be combined with our Tupperware proceeds and used for playground improvements. We hope to raise enough money to replace some of our playground equipment. Please sell these peel off coupon books to your friends, families and coworkers. The books sell for $10.00 each. Our Center will receive $5.00 from each book sold. These peel off coupons are great values for the purchaser and don't expire until 03/31/2012. We would appreciate your effort selling as many of these books as possible in order for us to reach our goal of $5,000.00. If you would like any additional books, please see Lisa or Corinne. Please return any money or unsold books by January 5, 2011.
A Lesson on Giving
We would like to take the opportunity to invite you and your child to join us in gift giving to six children living in a "safe place" due to domestic violence. We have placed ornaments on the tree in the front lobby which include the child's wishes written on them. Please take an ornament from the tree, purchase the item and bring it to Columbia Children's Center by Friday, December 17th. We will forward the gifts to the crisis center for distribution. A heartfelt thank you in advance for whatever you can do.
