Weekly Notes from the Preschool Director, 2/7

Dear Preschool Families,

I would like to take a moment and thank you for all the support you’ve shown me this week while I take on this new role as Interim Director. I am so honored to be given this opportunity. I have been a part of the Palm Valley School community for over a year now and I am in love with the culture and opportunities the school provides for our students. My son is currently in our Preschool program and thriving because of our amazing staff. I am grateful to be amongst this incredible group of educators. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to myself or Mrs. Chaffins.

As a reminder, the 2nd installment for Pizza Fridays are due today. You can hand in those forms and payments to your Lead Teacher, Mrs. Chaffins, or myself so we can ensure we are ordering the correct amount of pizza on Friday. Over the next few weeks, I will be reviewing our students' files and updating parent signatures on some forms. You may see some of these forms in their file folders.

This Saturday, February 10 is our Casino Royale Gala, I hope to see you all there! It will be a fun night that benefits the school. If you haven’t already, buy your tickets now! If you are unable to attend, check out our online auction at www.pvs.org/auction and share the link with family and friends to help support PVS.
