Eblast from the Preschool Director, 10/11

Dear Preschool Families,

I want to start by thanking all of our families for attending Parent-Teacher Conferences. I had the pleasure of attending a few virtually. I hope that time was well spent talking about your children's needs and expectations this coming year. If you are a family that started a little later this school year and would like to set up a Parent/Teacher Conference in November, please contact your child’s Lead Teacher so they can ensure we arrange something for you. 

I would also like to reach out to our families to see if we have any connections with farmers of produce and fruits. We would like to partner up with local farmers to provide our students with snacks that are grown here near the Coachella Valley. Here within our Preschool, we take pride in that our students are being exposed to fruits and vegetables during our snack time. I would greatly appreciate it if you have any information or connections, please contact me directly. 

On Thursday, October 15th at 10:15 am we will be participating in the Great California ShakeOut. While COVID-19 has brought many uncertainties and challenges, one thing's for sure: ShakeOut is still happening this year! We will have our student’s duck and cover at 10:15 am to teach them what to do during an earthquake. I want to assure our families that this is done in a careful manner to not upset students or scare them. For more information about this state event, please visit their website.

Unfortunately, we have canceled our Mini Camp that was going to take place on Friday, October 16th during our Professional Development Day. The school will be closed this day and Mini-Camp will no longer be available for PS and LS students due to lack of student registration. Our next available Mini-Camp will be during our February Break, February 16th-19th. Registration will open in a few months.

Our School Picture Day has been officially scheduled for Thursday, October 22nd, 2020! We ask that all students wear spirit shirts for their photos within our Preschool. More information about picture day will be sent out soon.
