Scholastic Book Orders
We are excited to provide you with an opportunity to order books from the Scholastic Reading Club. Please bring your book orders in to the school no later than Wednesday, November 13th.
Teddy Bear Picnic
On Wednesday, November 15th we will have a ‘Teddy Bear Picnic’ at preschool. We ask that each child brings their favourite Teddy Bear to Preschool that day for a special morning of activities.
On Wednesday, November 15th we will have “Picture Day”. We will be doing individual and class photos that day. Flora Chan, Gabriel’s mom, has graciously offered to take the photos. Thanks, Flora!
Just a reminder to make sure your child has indoor shoes for the classroom. We want to be sure our classroom floors stay clean! Each child has a cubby hole to keep their indoor shoes in after class each day. Outdoor shoes can be left at the coat racks in the lobby.
We have included a class list with parents names and contact info for your convenience.
We will be conducting monthly fire drills. We have explained to the children we are just practicing in case there is ever a time when we need to leave the building quickly. Please take some time to chat with your child about this.
As we are approaching cold and flu season, we are taking this opportunity to remind parents that if your child is feeling under the weather or displaying signs of illness (runny nose, coughing, fever, etc.) to please keep them at home.
We would appreciate if you would notify the preschool if your child is going to be away or is ill. You can contact us at 403.281.6755.
We welcome parents to volunteer in the classroom. Please sign up on the calendar posted on the bulletin board outside the classroom doors. Occasionally we will ask parents to volunteer for special projects such as Christmas crafts, making playdoh or field trips. Even if you are unable to come into the classroom or volunteer for a special craft, we would still appreciate your support by praying for our children and teachers.
If you have had any changes in your contact information (business, home or cell numbers or an address change), would you kindly let us know so that we can update your information on your child’s registration form. We need to keep current information so that in case of an emergency, we are able to reach you. Thank you.
Spaces Still Available
We still have spaces available for this school year. We would appreciate you sharing this information with your friends, neighbours and family to spread the word about our preschool. (Remember, we have a “referral incentive program”!) Yearly surveys we conduct indicate you are our most effective form of advertising. Thank you.
For withdrawal from the preschool, we require written notice by the 1st of the month prior to the month you are leaving. For example, if you are withdrawing your child on December 15th, notice must be given on or before November 1st. Alternatively, one month’s fee is required to be paid in lieu of such notice. This policy will be strictly enforced.
