Dear Barlina House Families:
Preschool registration is now open for next fall. You can complete the registration online or at the administration office.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding preschool registration, please free to contact me at the preschool, 815.477.5403 or by Email, dmaccrindle@crystallakeparks.org. 
 
We will be having a fun gym day at Grand Oaks on Thursday, February 6 and Friday, February 7. You will drop off and pick up at Grand Oaks. A flyer will be going home with more information.
 
We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day on Thursday, February 13 and Friday, February 14. The children are welcome to bring cards to share with their classmates. Please remember we do not allow food items to be distributed due to severe allergies.
 
The McHenry County Health Department will be doing our Vision and Hearing Screenings on February 3-4. Further information regarding these screenings will be sent home and will include a practice sheet for you to use with your child. The screening will be easier for you child if he/she knows what to expect.
 
District 47’s Kindergarten registration will be at their C.O.R.E. Center, 300 Commerce Drive during February 12-13.  Information is available on the District’s website, www.d47.org. 
 
Please remember to dress your children for the weather. When it is 20 degrees or above, we will be outside. The children need snow pants, boots, coat, hat and heavy winter gloves.
 
We will be having our second Art Show in March.   Every child will have at least one art project displayed at school.
