Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year!

August Events

Thursday, August 9, 6:30-7:30 PM – New Parent Orientation

To ensure that your child realizes maximum benefits from our program, we would love for you to understand our goals, procedures, guidance policies and educational program. Therefore, at least one parent and preferably both should plan on attending our New Parent Orientation. Due to the nature of this meeting, your child will be more comfortable at home. We will meet in the Centre at First Presbyterian Church. Please RSVP to preschool@fpcep.orgwith your name, your child’s name, and phone number. We look forward to seeing you!

Monday, August 13 – Playday

Playday is a special fun and informative day planned for you and your child.  Your child’s teacher will contact you the week of August 6th to schedule a visit the morning of August 13th. The purpose of Playday is to give your child a chance to meet the teacher and feel comfortable in his or her new surroundings. Small groups are scheduled for approximately thirty minutes.

Please bring the following completed forms with you to Playday:




Room Parent & Volunteer Sign-up

We invite our preschool parents and grandparents to consider signing up to be a preschool volunteer. As a volunteer, you will be a huge asset to our preschool community as well as having the opportunity to be more involved in your child’s experience. Volunteering at First Pres comes in many different forms including serving as a Room Parent, aiding your child’s teacher in the classroom, participating in special projects and events such as Fall Festival and Art Show, assisting our front office with administrative tasks, encouraging teacher appreciation efforts, and supporting Christian outreach work. Whether you choose one opportunity or all, we appreciate all of our volunteers and any time given is a blessing! Sign up sheets can be found in the classroom the first week of school or you can contact Room Parent Committee Chair Malyssa Villescas.

Saturday, August 11, 8am-12pm – Playground Workday

Please join us for our Playground Workday to prepare our “outdoor classroom” for this school year! Any time you can give is appreciated. We will be doing a safety check, sanding and sealing wood, general garden maintenance, small repairs and having tons of fun! Please email us to let us know the hours you can help, if you need childcare and the number of adults helping.

Tuesday, August 14 – First day of school

Regular school days will begin, including students in Early Birds, Extended Day and All Day programs.

Tuesday-Wednesday, August 14th-15th 9am – Nervous Parent Coffee

Are you new to the preschool and unsure what to expect? Ms. Cece, the Preschool Director, and Preschool Board Members will be available to talk with you and answer questions after drop-off at 9am in the Centre on Tuesday, August 14 and Wednesday, August 15.

We thought our First Pres family would enjoy seeing the reunion of our 2006 graduating Kindergarten class, reunited! Thank you to Suzanna Hallmark for coordinating and Cyd Goldfarb for reenacting the photo taken 12 years ago.
