A Great Start to the School Year

It’s hard to believe September is already over, it went by so fast. Your children are adjusting to school so well! We are really enjoying getting to know them and are looking forward to a great year.


Photo Day

On Wednesday, October 19th we will have our school “Photo Day”. We will be doing individual photos of the children that day. The pictures will turn out best if your child does not wear a busy pattern or anything with a graphic.


Scholastic Book Orders

We are excited to provide you with an opportunity to order books from the Scholastic Reading Club. Please bring your book orders to the school no later than Monday, October 24th. Parents you can also order online at www.scholastic.ca/readingclub and use the Class Code RC147114 for our Preschool.


October 31st

Just a note about Monday, October 31st. We recognize that some children will want to wear a costume to school that day. It is fine for your child to do so, however, we ask that you keep it fun and cute. If you don’t have a costume at home, we always have a few available in our dress-up corner.


Children’s Birthdays

For your child’s birthday, if you would like to provide a small snack (something simple) for the preschool children to celebrate their birthday, please let one of the teachers or Kathy know. We will supplement your birthday snack with some fruit or veggies as part of our preschool snack for that day.


Indoor Shoes & Outerwear

Just a reminder to make sure your child has indoor shoes for the classroom. We want to be sure our classroom floors stay clean! Each child has a cubby hole to keep their indoor shoes in after class each day. Outdoor shoes, coats and backpacks can be left on the coat hooks in the lobby. Please look for your child’s name above the hooks.


Also, weather permitting, the children and teachers may go outside during class time for some fresh air and learning and play time. Please ensure your child has a jacket and a hat and mittens each day. They can be left on the coat hooks in the lobby.


Fire Drills

We will be conducting monthly fire drills. We have explained to the children we are just practicing in case there is ever a time when we need to leave the building quickly. Please take some time to chat with your child about this.


Volunteers

Parents are welcome to volunteer in the classroom. Your assistance is appreciated but certainly not compulsory. Occasionally we will ask parents to volunteer for special projects such as Christmas crafts, making playdoh or field trips. Even if you are unable to come into the classroom or volunteer for a special craft, we would still appreciate your support by praying for our children and teachers.


Absence/Illness

If your child will be absent for any reason, ill or away, please notify the preschool prior to class time. You can contact us at 403.281.6755, extension 227 or email kathy@southcalgary.org.


Spaces Still Available

We still have spaces available for this school year. We would appreciate you sharing this information with your friends, neighbours, and family to spread the word about our preschool. Yearly surveys we conduct indicate you are our most effective form of advertising. Thank you.
