Dear SRPS Parents,

Please allow me to begin this month's newsletter by giving a big shout out to our SRPS Parent Board! This amazing group of parents did a magnificent job putting our annual auction together, it was so much fun!

T HANK YOU for making this special night a great success!!

How did March get here so fast? Spring is almost here and the weather is changing, flowers are blooming, our young students are growing and their clothes are shrinking; so please make sure you check with you child's teachers about bringing an new set of clothing. Remember, here at SRPS we like to have fun and sometimes that means getting messy!!

We are fast approaching the final stretch of our school year, and although this brings mixed feelings, we still have many busy days to enjoy with lots of fun and exciting activities, filled with all kinds of classroom celebrations which I can not wait to see!!

Lastly, I would like to let you know how much we appreciate and value all the help, contributions, and continuous support that we receive from all of you. We would not be able to have all the activities and programs that makes SRPS the special place that it is, if it wasn't because of you.

Thank you parents, families, and friends!!

Sincerely,
Magda Taglienti

SECURITY PROCEDURES UPDATE
As you all know, SRPS is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for the children and its staff. Throughout the school year, we've been having our front doors locked while children are in attendance. This procedure allows us to maintain a secure facility.

As we continue moving forward with our efforts to increase the security in our campus, our new security system is allowing us to schedule a time to lock and unlock our doors automatically. The doors will now unlock 10 minutes before and after drop-off and pick-up time. If you are visiting our preschool during school hours, please use the main entrance and one of our volunteers at the front desk will buzz you in.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION AND UNDERSTANDING!

Ms. Clarissa was reading to Eleanor, and the picture book showed a picture of "parents". Eleanor said,"I don't have parents." Ms. Clarissa then explained, "You have a Mommy and a Daddy, and those are your parents, right?" Eleanor said with great firmness, "My Mommy and my Daddy aren't my parents!"
