Weekly Notes from the Preschool Director, 11/29

Dear Preschool Families,

Welcome back! I am happy to see all of our children and families looking happy and refreshed. I hope you enjoyed the company of your family and friends this holiday break. There is much to be thankful for here at PVS!

Please join me in welcoming Ms. Dawn Frazier. She will be our new Quail Lead Teacher. Ms. Frazier will be joining us by the end of this week. She is warm and loving, has a passion for teaching, and is very grateful to be here at PVS. I know she will be a great addition to our school!

More great news - Mrs. Greenberg has returned to the Jackrabbit classroom. We are so excited to have her back! Her bubbly personality is contagious, and the children will adore getting to know her.

Families, Mrs. Chaffins and I would love your input. We strive for greatness and our number one goal is to have children and families happy and proud to be a Firebird. Please don’t hesitate to schedule a time with me to provide any and all feedback on our program!

Did you receive your Gala invitation? Your student was sent home with a special invitation, just for you. If you haven’t seen it yet, please ask your student's teacher!

Traditions: With this activity, take a moment to think about the traditions that your family enjoys throughout the year. Last year, one of our families shared a book about reindeer. They explained how they would leave carrots in their yard for Santa's reindeer. They gave each child in the class a small baggie with carrots to take home to leave out for when the reindeer came to their house. Please remember, your family's tradition can be but does not have to be, a holiday tradition. Sign up sheets are posted in your child's classroom!

Last Coffee with Mrs. Rodriguez & Mrs. Chaffins: Our final morning coffee is Friday, December 15 at 8:45 am, E-10 in the PK building. Please join us if you can.

Request: When/if your child goes to the doctor for immunizations and annual physicals, please stop by my office with your forms so that I can make a copy.

Box Tops and plastic water bottles: Please continue your donations, we greatly appreciate all of your support!
