End of the Year: LIBRARY

Our last library check out day will be THURSDAY, MAY 4th.  Since kindergarten round up is held that Friday, the building has adjusted some schedules and we are doing library on Thursday instead of Friday.

This will be the last chance for your child to return their old library book and receive a new one.  Next week on May 12th, we will be going to the library to check in our books and attend our story time, but will not be checking new books out.  The library needs to ensure they get all the books returned before the end of the school year and ask us to start this process during that week.

If you have additional questions about our library routine and the upcoming weeks, please let me know!  Thank you so much!

Upcoming Event

The preschool would like to invite you and your family to join us for an afternoon of outdoor fun!  Below is a copy of the invitation.  A paper copy of the invite will be sent home in your child’s backpack.  Please fill out the bottom portion of the form ASAP for this end of school year event!

Please contact Ms. Ellen with questions 🙂

Quarter 4 Home Visits

Ms. Ellen has contacted most families about scheduling the final home visit of the 2016-2017 school year.  If you could reply to her email or call her at Maxey, that would help with getting everything scheduled and completed before the end of the school year.  Thank you!

Family Project

As many of you know, we do Family Projects throughout the school year.  The most recent project sent home for March says there should be a piece of paper attached to complete the project.  There was a slight miscommunication before Spring Break and the extra paper did not make it into the kiddos backpacks like I had planned.  Feel free to use whatever paper you have lying around your home.  If you need a piece of paper, please let me know and I would be happy to send one for you to complete this project with your child.

These Family Projects are very meaningful to your children and they enjoy sharing many details about each one they complete.  They get to share a lot about what is important to them and communicate that to their friends.  I appreciate you all taking the time to do these projects with your children!

Hope everyone is well rested after Spring Break! 🙂


Due to a transportation scheduling issue, we will be having our bus evacuation drill on WEDNESDAY MARCH 8th, instead of Tuesday.

Just a reminder, bus drills are for ALL children, even if they do not ride the bus for daily transportation.

Thank you for your flexibility!

Friendship Cards

Tomorrow we are having our Friendship Card exchange!  The children are making bags during school to collect the cards they receive.  Please remember these guidelines when helping your child make their cards:

  • Help your child write his or her name on each card.
  • Do not write other children’s names on the cards.  This will help your child pass out their cards more easily.
  • Per LPS preschool policy, please do not send food, candy, or other edible items.  Thank you for your help with this.
  • Non-edible items are welcome such as, stickers, tattoos, pencils, or erasers.
  • Bring enough cards for all your child’s classmates.  We currently have 20 children.
