Weekly Notes from Head of Preschool, 9/19

Dear Families,

What a fabulous picture day we had yesterday! Everyone looked their best and all of the children did a terrific job posing and following the directions. If you would like to order pictures you can go online at cordovaphotography.com to place an order. Click “order online” in the upper right corner and select Palm Valley School.

I would also like to thank our room parents for a wonderful meeting yesterday. Room parents are our volunteer leaders in the Preschool. They assist us in taking photos and supporting special events. If you would like to get involved please email me to see how you can help.

Parent-Teacher conferences are scheduled for Wednesday, October 3rd. Please see your classroom teacher to sign up for a conference time on this day. There is no school on this day, but we will be running a special mini-camp for those who need care. Please visit pvs.org/camps to sign up!

These are some of the most frequently asked questions in preschool: Is my child ready? What can I do to push them ahead? I would like to invite all of you to come to our first Preschool Coffee Hour this Friday, September 21st at 8:20 am in the E-10 building. We will be discussing these questions and many other topics related to early childhood education. Bring your questions and your comments, and I will bring the coffee!
