Eblast from the Preschool Director, 10/25

Dear Preschool Families,

I hope all our families are enjoying their weekend! We have completed our first week using our new Procare system. I thank all our families for their help and patience during this transition to an electronic sign in. Our goal is to be utterly contact-free in our check-in and out. If you haven’t already, please download the app so that you can sign your student in and out on your device. Only parents/guardians can download the app. All other authorized pickups will need their access code to sign in and out on our school devices. I know that Procare does allow messages to teachers through their app, similar to ClassDojo. However, we encourage our families to still contact their teachers and me through our school email addresses. 

Please remember that the Wreath Fundraising packets are due tomorrow, Monday, October 26th, 2020! I want to thank all of our families who participated in this fundraiser. It was fun, and I know that they make incredible gifts for our friends and families. 

Costume Day
Halloween is coming up this next weekend! As a parent, I was so excited that it would fall on a Saturday this year. Although Halloween may look different this year, we are still encouraging our students to wear their costumes to school on Friday, October 30th! Faculty and staff have chosen a theme, and we are looking forward to seeing the students' faces when they see us dressed up. We will be having small classroom celebrations with fun activities and lessons instead of our typical costume parade.

Parent Association Fall Fundraiser
Make sure to keep your eye out for the Fall Wreath Fundraiser packets that are coming your way. The fundraiser begins this month, and proceeds will go to supporting Palm Valley students. Thank you in advance for your participation. All orders and payments are due back to Palm Valley by October 26th.

Immunizations
I sent home notification papers of missing immunization dosages. Please ensure that you turn in updated copies of immunizations or speak to your child’s doctor about getting caught up. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me.
