Adult visitors are welcome in the preschool classroom anytime. Grandparents and adult friends are especially invited to visit. If you plan to visit, please sign-up on the classroom calendar ahead of time.

Communication Tools
A binder will be sent home daily with information about your child's day. Teacher's email addresses are available on the school website.

Each week, one family will be in charge of providing snacks for the entire class. A snack calendar will be sent home for parents to reference. Snacks must be healthy, ready to serve and store bought. We are sorry, but school regulations state that they may not be homemade.

Birthday Celebrations
You may bring in a small treat for your child's birthday. Treats follow the same guidelines as above for snacks. Please inform the teacher ahead of time.

Conferences are scheduled twice a year along with the elementary school conferences. Parents are encouraged to contact the teacher at any time if the need arises.
