September 2016 News & Calendar of Events

Dear Parents,

What a great start to the year! Our little ones have settled in so well and we are so proud of them. We are also extremely pleased by how all of our mommies and daddies have made drop offs “short and sweet.” We know it is so hard to separate from a crying child, but separating with a sincere “I love you” and “I will be back soon” actually makes the transition quicker, smoother, and easier on everyone. Thank you so much for your cooperation.

In the News:

Room Parent Meeting: You are invited to attend our Room Parent meeting on Wednesday, August 31st at 8:15 a.m. in the PCS Library if you signed up to be a Room Parent, or if you would simply like more information prior to “committing”.

Back to School Night: PLEASE plan to attend Back to School Night on Friday, September 9th from 7-8:00 p.m. This is a very important evening in which the teachers will share classroom schedules, routines, policies, etc. Adults only please.

Volunteer Opportunities: PCS uses Signup.com to track MVP volunteer hours. While you can volunteer for any PCS event to earn credit, the first preschool event is the Site Work Day in which we deep clean classrooms, freshen the yard, etc. DOUBLE hours are earned for cleaning and yardwork, so this is a great event to kick off the year. Check it out! http://signup.com/go/JYJYGF

Grandparents’ Day: If you would like us to send a personal invitation to your child’s grandparent to attend our annual Grandparents’ Day (event date:December 9th) celebration, please complete and return the attached invitation request form asap. Thanks!

Enrollment at PCS: We love personal referrals! Do you have a friend who would enjoy our school? Pass the word…online applications for NEW students for 2017-2018 open on October 1st. Don’t worry…your space is safe! You will receive an ‘intent to enroll’ form mid-year to confirm your desired program :-).
