Happy Back to School days!

I can remember years ago as summer was ending and school was around the corner how anxious I was for the first day to arrive so I could wear that new Garanimal mix and match outfit (that was always too hot to wear on the first day), and those cool new Hush Puppy shoes! With great anticipation, the week before school started, my sister and I would ride our banana seat bikes to the school to find out the most important news ever; did we get the fun, easy teachers and were our best friends in the same class as us? It was always a defining moment! Oh, there were years of jubilation and years of disappointment, for sure! But in the years of disappointment, new friends came along, and the “strict” teacher ended up being the best one ever, and life was good again, well, at least until the homework began! (:

Well, here I am 40 years later with butterflies in my stomach again anticipating a wonderful year with 250 preschoolers and 20 amazing staff! And I already know the class lists!

I am so looking forward to connecting with all our families, both new and old!

Preschool Open House:

On Thursday, August 21, anytime from 2:00-6:00 p.m. come by the preschool with your child to meet the teachers, see the classroom, and drop off supplies! The Supply List is located on our web page,, and was also emailed to all of our families last month. Payments are due on the 15th of the month (starting in August), but feel free to make that first payment during OPEN HOUSE, if you would like.

First days of school: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, August 25-27. Class times are 8:30-11:30 a.m. or 12:15-3:15 p.m.

We almost have a full house this year with only a few random openings in the three and four year old afternoon classes. So if you know anyone still looking for a place for their kiddo to attend preschool this fall, let them know!

~To the first preschool parent who read this and contacts me, you will receive a free Lunch Bunch pass (worth $25) for this school year! Lunch Bunch is an optional lunch program on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 11:30-12:15 for children to eat lunch with their peers and for parents to enjoy a little more time to get their errands run! (: So if you are a T/Th parent, you may want to call your MWF friends!

Enjoy your last days of summer and we will see you soon!
