Parent Enrichment Series
Thursday, September 6 at 7pm to 8pm
The preschool’s Board of Directors is launching a Parent Enrichment Series where the preschool will regularly offer a seminar or class on a topic of interest to preschool parents. Our first session will take place in tandem with the Pre-K/Kindergarten Orientation on Thursday, September 6 at 7pm to 8pm. Ms. Cece and Ms. Katie will present on the preschool’s philosophy on preparing children for a love of reading and writing. Pre-K and Kindergarten parents will then proceed to their children’s classrooms for orientation, while younger students’ parents will learn more about building the foundation for success in Pre-K and beyond. Due to the nature of this event, children will be more comfortable at home.
Fall Festival Volunteers Needed!
Each year the preschool celebrates our Fall Festival on October 31. We need lots of volunteers to help work with children on decorations and displays, set up festival booths, coordinate snacks and clean up! If you are interested in getting involved, please contact Room Parent Chair Malyssa Villescas at email@example.com.
16 de Septiembre Celebration
Friday, September 14
On Friday, September 14, the preschool will celebrate Mexican Independence Day. Send your child in their favorite fiesta-wear, and join us for the festivities!
Birthday Book Club
Now is the time to join the First Presbyterian Preschool Birthday Book Club! This is a personal way of honoring students on their birthdays while helping the school library grow. You may donate a book or provide a contribution, and Ms. Cece will purchase a book in your child’s honor. A book plate with the student’s name and birthday will be put in the front of the book, indicating that it is a special book from a special child. The teacher presents the book in the child’s class, and the class enjoys the book before it goes to the library. Please visit the preschool office for a donation form.
Curriculum Spotlight: Chapel
Each week the whole school gathers for an interactive, age appropriate chapel service led by our very own Pastor Neal, featuring an inspiring message that leaves us on the edge of our pews! The children sing songs with music provided by our own Ms. Brooke and led by our Kindergarteners. Often, when our students are asked their favorite memories of their time at First Pres, they instantly answer “Chapel!” Parents are invited to join us each week on alternating Wednesdays and Thursdays at 9:15am right after drop-off. Check your child’s monthly class calendar for Chapel dates. Your children would be thrilled to share this special time with you!
