It’s hard to believe that we only have one month of school left. Seems like we just got started. We have had a wonderful year with your children and wish them all the best. On behalf of Janna, Erin and Kathy, we would like to thank-you for your support and encouragement. It has meant a lot to us. God bless you and your families. We hope that you have a safe and relaxing summer!
Mother’s Day Tea
Moms, please join us for the morning of Friday, May 10th at 10:00 am as we celebrate "Mother's Day". The children will be busy over the next month preparing for this special celebration and we are sure you will be delighted.
Scholastic Book Orders
We are excited to provide you with one more opportunity this year to order books from the Scholastic Reading Club. Please bring your book orders in to the school no later than Monday, May 13th. Parents you can now also order online at www.scholastic.ca/canadaclubs and connect to our Preschool.
Our Graduation/Promotion Ceremony and Year End Party will both be on the same day on Wednesday, May 29th. Everyone is welcome!
We ask the children, parents and any guests to arrive at the preschool at 10:00 a.m. Please bring your child up to the Preschool room and then you and your guests can find a seat in the Sanctuary. As soon as everyone has arrived, we will begin our graduation/ promotion ceremony.
We will be having a beach theme that day, so feel free to bring your child in t-shirts and shorts. After the children receive their certificates, we will have some fun activities for the children (younger siblings included) and we will also enjoy some punch and goodies together. We ask that each family bring a dessert or snack to share.
Note: May 29th will be the last day of school.
For your child’s birthday, if you would like to provide a snack for the preschool children to celebrate their birthday, please let one of the teachers or Kathy know. We will use your birthday snack as part of our preschool snack for that day.
Take Home Teddy
Our “Take Home Teddy” program with the children will continue this month. Each child will be given the opportunity to take the class teddy, “Mac” home for a weekend. Please include Mac in all your weekend plans and then write or draw in Mac’s journal how he spent his weekend. Kindly bring Mac back on Monday morning and we will share Mac’s weekend adventures with the class during circle time.
Registration for the 2019 – 2020 School Year
Just a reminder for those of you who will be returning in the fall, please make sure you get your child’s registration in soon. If you need a registration form, please see Kathy in the office or you can find the forms on our website at www.sccpreschool.ca.
As well, we would appreciate you sharing this information with your friends, neighbours and family to spread the word about our preschool. Yearly surveys we conduct indicate you are our most effective form of advertising. Thank you.
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.
We would like 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 until they are feeling better.
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 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.
South Calgary Community Preschool Evaluation
Parents, could we ask you to take a moment to fill out the attached South Calgary Community Preschool Evaluation Form? Your comments are very helpful in assessing the past and planning for the future. If you could return it to us by the end of the school year, we would appreciate it. Thank you for your assistance.
Thank you all for an amazing year!!! We look forward to seeing our returning students in September!
