Eblast from the Preschool Director, 3/28

Preschool Families,

What a busy month we have had! Thank you to all the families who participated in the Scholastic Book Fair this year. A special thank you to the families who donated books to our classrooms. We truly appreciate your help in expanding our classroom libraries. Reading is such an important aspect of early childhood education. Our hope is that our students are not only read to at school but at home as well to instill the love of reading. 

This Friday is our Annual Egg Hunt! Each year, we ask our families to bring in taped up plastic eggs for a day of fun filled Spring activities. The Egg hunt may look different from classroom to classroom but it is exciting for all of our students. Our Pre-K students hunt for eggs that have their names on them and our younger students sometimes do a scavenger hunt looking for specific colored eggs. We will be taking many pictures of these individual egg hunts and will share them with you as soon as we are able. Please keep eggs empty for our usage. We will be using them for various activities for the day. 

Friday, April 2nd, is also an early release day for the entire Palm Valley community.  Below are the divisional release times for Friday. Spring Break will be the following week from April 5th-April 9th.  After-Care will not be made available on Friday or during Spring Break this year.
