OCTOBER PRESCHOOL NEWS

We are all so happy to be back with the children and it’s nice to hear laughter coming from the classroom and seeing their smiling faces again! 

 

You should have received an email invitation to join Procare from the preschool.  We use this software program to communicate with our parents. You can message your child’s teacher and they can also send you updates and pictures. Each month you will receive messages reminding you of tuition due date and you will receive a message once your child’s tuition is paid. There is an app that you can download on your phone, or you can find this info on the website. Please let me know if you have not received the email inviting you to join the program.  You will also be able to pay your tuition online through this program. Tuition is due by the 15th of each month and can be paid through Procare, bank drafts, check or cash. Checks should be made out to: Mt Pleasant Preschool. 

 

Drop-off is going well with everyone. We do still have a few children crying, but that is to be expected. If you arrive after 9:10 am, you will need to walk your child to the door. A doorbell is located on the door with the Blink camera.

 

October is Fire Safety Month. The Sherrills Ford Fire Department will be bringing some trucks for the kids to see and learn the importance of fire safety.

 

Fall pictures will be Wednesday, October 19th and Thursday, October 20th. A form will be sent home for you to choose which background you wish to use for your child. Please return this form as soon as possible.

 

We will start working with the children on our assessments. Once completed, we will send them home for you to review. The checklist lets us know where your child is struggling and gives you the opportunity to work with them at home. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s progress and would like to set up a conference, please let the teachers know and they will be glad to discuss this with you.

 

Scholastic Book Orders will be sent home this month with your child. This gives you the opportunity to order quality books at affordable prices. You have the option of turning your form in to me or going online and placing your order. When you place your order through www.scholastic.com, not only will your child benefit by having a new book, but the Preschool receives points to help in ordering new books for our library! 

 

To end the month of October, all classes will be having Halloween parties. The teachers will be sharing what is needed for each class.  The children may wear their costumes if they choose too.

 

Mt Pleasant UMC will be having their annual Fall Festival on Sunday, October 30th from 4:00-5:30 pm.  All are invited to come and enjoy Trunk of Treat, Smores and Crafts.

 

 

 

Things to remember:

 

The preschool will be closed on Friday, October 21st.
