Eblast from the Preschool Director, 9/27

Dear Preschool Families,

Can you believe that we are officially in Autumn? The mornings and nights are becoming cooler, which is perfect for our mornings on our playgrounds. We are continuing to ensure the safety of our students and faculty with our Health Screening each morning. I want to personally thank all of you for being patient in the morning as we admit each student into our Preschool. Our students have adjusted extremely well to our new norms and some enjoy getting their magic number from the thermometer each day! 

Dr. Sherman announced last week that there has been a slight change to the school calendar for the month of October. Parent/Teacher Conferences will be Friday, October 9th. Our Preschool will be closed with no Mini Camp available in order to facilitate our conferences. Our Professional Development Day is now scheduled for the following Friday, October, 16th, 2020. Mini-Camp will be available for Professional Development Day, however, sign-ups are required. Please sign up quickly, spaces are limited. I have provided the link to the Mini Camp here.

In regards to Parent/Teacher Conferences, the Preschool will be conducting these virtually. Sign Up Sheets will be posted Monday, September 28th. Once you have signed up for a time slot, the teacher will be sending you a virtual link for your conference. We will also be sending home a form for you to fill out prior to the conference. Please use the time for these conferences well, ask any questions or concerns you may have. Our faculty have put in a lot of time and thought into these conferences and are looking forward to speaking with each of you about your children in our care.

For our toilet training families, Mrs. Traub and I will be conducting our Annual Toilet Training class. This year, this class will be virtually on Saturday, October 17th at 10:00 am. We will talk about what signs to look for when your child is ready to toilet train, how to help support them in their independence during this time, and so much more! We will be providing more information in the coming weeks but encourage you to register if you are interested. This virtual event will also be available to the public outside of our school community.

Friday, October 9th- Parent/Teacher Conferences (No School/No Mini-Camp Available)
Thursday, October 15th- Great California Shakeout
Friday, October 16th - Professional Development Day (No School/ Mini-Camp Available)
