Weekly Notes from the Preschool Director, 2/28

“You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book.” -Dr. Seuss

Dear Preschool Families,

Welcome back from February Break! While greeting families on Monday morning, I’ve realized how much our students have grown in this past year. I, along with the rest of our staff are very excited and thankful to see them grow within our program. I would also like to thank the families that generously bid on items for our online auction. Your continuous support of our school is appreciated by the entire Palm Valley School community.

This past Monday, our Quails started in their new classroom, the E-10 Building. All of our students are embracing this move and very excited to see familiar faces in our Pre-K classrooms on the playground.

Tonight, February 28th is our Dinner Out Event at The Habit Burger Grill. Present this flyer between the hours of 5 pm - 9 pm at the Palm Desert location and 20% of your receipt will benefit PVS!

This Friday, March 2nd is Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss’s birthday! To celebrate, Mrs. Fisher, the Head of Lower School will be reading her favorite story to our Pre-Kindergarten classes, Mrs. Chaffins will read to the Quails, Ms. Fraizer will be reading to the Hummingbird class and Mrs. Garza will be reading to the Crickets. This is a great way to promote reading and have our students get more familiar with faculty that will be in the classrooms they will be moving up to in the next school year. Please join us in wearing Dr. Seuss outfits or by dressing as your favorite Dr. Seuss character!
