Parent Survey Time
Look for a survey opportunity the week after spring break. We use your feedback as a part of our planning process for next year. We appreciate all your suggestions. This year is especially important – the surveys will be reviewed by our NAEYC Accreditation visitors next fall to evaluate our program.
Preschool Registration Update
We have limited openings for all ages but particularly in our 3's classes. Please help us advertise these opportunities with your friends and neighbors. We are really excited that our classes are filling so quickly. Thanks for telling your friends about us.
Illness and School Attendance
Please review the guidelines regarding return to school after an illness. Keep your child at home for 24 hours after the last symptom of fever, diarrhea, or vomiting. It does not matter if your child feels OK; 24 hours is the rule for eliminating contagious conditions. Please be considerate of the other families and do not send your child in while she is still contagious.

Teacher Appreciation Week
We had a wonderful time! Thank you for all the delicious food and special gifts. Your star notes were funny and told us what the children remember and enjoy. The flowers the children brought in were lovely and your children were so adorable giving them to us. We all felt loved and appreciated! Our room moms did a great job organizing. Board Member Jessi Kessock really made things go smoothly for everyone. It was a fun week for all the staff.
Our tuition notes will go out April 9. Please return them by the 16.
Visit from the Fireman
One of our parents, John Grimes, is also a fireman. We all enjoyed learning about fire safety with him March 29. Ask your child about the visit.
