Valentine Greetings!

            “Dad’s Day” at Preschool is on Thursday, February 1st and Friday, February 2nd.  Dad’s day is designed for children and their dads to experience a day in the life of their preschoolers.  Please join your child for a modified class day. Children will need a guardian with them on this day since it is a modified time. Arrival time 8:45 am to 10:30 am.  We encourage you to ask an uncle or grandpa or a family friend (must be 18 years or older) to participate in this experience with their preschooler. No Lunch Bunch on these days.

           We will celebrate Valentine’s Day in the classroom February 13th and February 14th.   Please bring a box of unopened valentines for your class. The children will be signing the Valentines in class. The children will decorate a bag for their Valentines, your child can also bring an unopened sealed treat to put in the bags. (reminder that we are a nut free facility). No Lunch Bunch on these party days.

            No School Reminder: Please note, no school on Friday, February 16th for Lincoln’s Birthday and Monday, February 19th for President’s Day. 

            February is Community Helper Month.  We will have the San Bernardino County Fire Department engines here during the regular school day at 9:30 on Friday, February 23rd and Thursday, March 21st (yes, March)!  Think of how exciting it is for your child to see the fire engine and the firefighters teaching them about fire safety. It is so cool.  This is community helper MONTH!! We love it, your child loves it, when YOU come and share your occupation.  Off hand, our families represent nurses, police, doctors, chefs, and UPS drivers to name a few. Come share with your child’s class, we love our families and are proud of the work you do in our community.

            The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to us on February 20th through the 23rd.  We have geared our Fair to preschool age book selections.  Did you know that the book fair profits go right back into the classroom?  Your child’s Weekly Reader subscription is paid for by our book fair profits!  Stop by at drop off time or pick up time and browse in Fellowship Hall.  Scholastic accepts all forms of payment from cash to credit card.  “Today’s readers are tomorrow’s leaders!”

Vision Screening is set for Wednesday, February 27th and Wednesday, February 28th during class time.  Thank you to the CA Elks for donating this wonderful complimentary service to our families.  Be sure to turn in your child’s permission slip (handed out soon) to receive a free vision test.  The vision specialist is wonderful, and she has helped many of our families through the years.  

            Looking ahead: We will have Parent Teacher Conferences on March 7/8.  Your children will not be in school that day.  A sign-up timesheet will be available in the classroom soon.

            As we look towards the fall, currently enrolled families are guaranteed Priority Registration for the 2024-2025 school year.  Priority Registration packets will have all the information you need and will be emailed soon to children who are now enrolled in the Preschool and their siblings.

            If you wish to register for the 24-25 Preschool year, you need to complete your registration forms (including $100.00 fee) and return them no later than 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 13th.  Registration for the public begins thereafter. 

            God gave each of us a family that we can call our own. A family that loves us for who we are, so we would never feel alone. Happy Valentine’s Day!
