Weekly Notes from the Preschool Director, 1/10

Dear Preschool Families,

Happy New Year! On Monday, we celebrated the New Year with a countdown in the Pre-K classrooms. All the children have grown up so much since September. We love to see the confidence and self-awareness each of our students now exude!

We are sending home some important notices this week. Please check your children's folders.

Toys
Our students are very excited about their holiday gifts, but these can be distracting. We ask that if they are not using their item for “show and teach” to please leave toys at home. Thank you for your consideration.

Mini Camp
We had a blast during our winter mini camps! Thank you to all of those who participated. Our next mini camp is during the February Break, February 20-23, sign up now at pvs.org/camps.

Lost Outerwear
Please check the labels on your child’s outerwear and ensure that it belongs to them. We have some missing jackets and sweaters. Please label ALL outerwear with your child’s name!
