January 2019 Preschool News and Calendar of Events

Welcome back! It was such a treat to see all of our little friends again after the Christmas break. All of our Littles had so much to say about their holiday adventures…from presents to travel and family time. While we all enjoy a little time away, it is also great to back into the routine. January is always such a fun month as it springboards us into learning about winter, cold weather animals, and more!


MOONLIGHT MAGIC REGISTRATION: If you are interested in signing up for Moonlight Magic, please click HERE to pay. Return your receipt as proof of registration to the preschool office. Registration is for preschool only; BYH is full.

Staffing Updates – We wanted to let you know that Mrs. Jen, our Room 1 teacher, resigned at the end of December. While it was an extremely difficult decision for her, the Lord laid it on her heart to home school her son. Ms. Pam will be stepping in as lead teacher for the remainder of this year. Also, please help me in welcoming Ms. Nellie! Ms. Nellie was one of our FABULOUS CSULA interns last spring and then spent the entire summer teaching in Kinder Camp. We are so blessed to have her back and on staff full time!

Preschool Re-enrollment 2019 – 2020 – Thank you for submitting your Intent to Enroll Forms in a timely manner! Unless you were contacted, your scheduled was approved. Online re-enrollment runs from February 1 – March 1. Registration fees must be paid by March 1 in order to retain your space.

PCS TK / Kindergarten Re-enrollment – If you submitted an intent-to-enroll form for PCS TK/Kindergarten, your Teacher Recommendation Forms have been submitted to the teachers for completion. Placement in PCS TK or Kindergarten is based on your child’s Teacher Recommendation. You will be notified before February 1 if there are any concerns about your child’s advancement to your requested placement at PCS. If you are not contacted, your online enrollment will be available for the program you requested on February 1 and due March 1.

Reminder! If you would like a TOUR of our PCS Campus, please attend our final Observation Day on January 17th. Register through the PCS website.

Summer Registration – It is hard to believe, but summer will be here before we know it! Summer registration forms will be sent out at the end of January.
