Vision Screenings

Over the next couple of months your child will be screened for vision problems.  Each child will be screened during a regularly scheduled day and results will be reported to you.  Please note that this does not replace an examination by an eye doctor.  This simply is a way to help identify concerns prior to Kindergarten.  Some vision concerns go undetected which can hinder the development of the child.  This is why screening during preschool is essential!

Wise About Eyes
Parent/Teacher Conferences

Conferences will be here before you know it!  Conferences will be held on November 19th & 20th.  Sign up sheets will be outside of each classroom door.  Conferences are typically 15 minutes long but can be extended if you have concerns which will take longer than the allotted time.  

One of the biggest indicators of student success is parent/guardian involvement!  Please plan on attending a conference.  If you can't make any of the times listed, contact your child's teacher to set up a different time to meet!
Fall Break

Our Fall Break/Conferences & Thanksgiving is coming up.  There will be no school during the week of November 19th.  Care will be offered on November 20th & 21st.  Only 12 students may enroll so please send in your forms to enroll.  Forms are found outside of the classroom doors and also in the Ext day room.   If there is an overwhelming response, we will open additional spots.
Our collection of clothes that are used in emergencies is getting low.  If you have gently used children's clothes and shoes that you wish to donate, we would appreciate it!  We also could use new underwear donations.  
School Cancellations and Delays
 
1. Look for "Washington Local" delays or closings on the news or via news station alerts.  
2. Sign up for Remind to have alerts sent to you via text or email about delays/closings,  event reminders like picture day, field trips, special activities etc.
                                                 3.. Check FB for updates

Remind

* Remind will also be used to notify you if there is an emergency or concern that you need to be made aware of immediately.
