Welcome Green Apron Families!!
I am excited about this school year and I hope you are too! Let me tell you a little bit about myself, my name is Tammy Avila, and this is my 18th year at First United Methodist Church Preschool. I have a wonderful husband Chris. We have two beautiful children. Our son Landon is 14 years old and our daughter Reese is 9. When I am not teaching or planning fun stuff for us to do, I enjoy watching the WORLD CHAMPION DODGERS!, my daughter dance or my son out on the baseball field. I’m excited to get to know your child this school year. We are going to have a fabulous school year!!!!!

My assistant is Miss Garcia. This is her fourth year working in the Green Aprons. She graduated from University of La Verne with her degree in Psychology. In her “free” time she loves to act and has been in a few local productions. Who knows…? Maybe someday we will see her in Hollywood.

Our goals this year are to keep the children safe and have fun! Our preschoolers learn through play and our curriculum will be based on play with a purpose. We will start by getting acquainted and learning both our classroom and outside rules. Good handwashing and social distancing will be encouraged. We will learn to follow directions and become familiar with our new routine. This month we will learn all about me, our five senses and
what we are Thankful for.

Please send a complete change of clothes (shirt, pants, underwear, socks) for your child with their name clearly marked on each piece of clothing the first week of school. Place clothes in a gallon size Ziploc bag, all items labeled with their name. Your child will keep them in their cubby in case of unplanned spills, muddy clothes, etc. Also, we will be spending a considerable amount of time outside, so please send a jacket or sweatshirt for your child to wear each day at school.

***Please keep all toys and items from home, home! Thank you for your
understanding and cooperation!

If you need to share a comment and/or a concern, you may reach me by email at Preschool.fumc@verizon.net ATTN: Mrs. Avila. Or by calling the Preschool office.

Love and Hugs to all our new green aprons!
Mrs. Avila and Miss Garcia
