Welcome to Preschool!
Dear Pre K 5 Students and Parents,
Summer is quickly coming to an end and the beginning of preschool is right around the corner! We are so excited to welcome you to Holy Family’s Glory Bee Preschool Program and the Buzzin’ Bees Pre K 5 class. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce the Pre K 5 team. I am the lead teacher, Mrs. Ellen Weidley. The children call me Mrs. Ellen 😊 I earned my Child Development Associates Certification in 2008 and I have worked at Holy Family for 13 years. Our class has two Assistant Teachers, Mrs. Jane Baker, will be with us in the mornings and Mrs. Frida Wilson will be with us in the afternoons.
We would like to invite you to our Sneak Peek on Wednesday, September 4 at 9:00am. This is a wonderful chance for parents and children to visit the classroom and meet the teachers. It is also a great opportunity to find out important information about our class, activities, and schedules. The day will begin in the gym with Mrs. Peacott speaking about policies and procedures of our Glory Bee Preschool Program. Then we will move to the classroom for children to get a “peek” and help them to feel a little more comfortable for their first day of school. There will be sign-up sheets for parent volunteers. 😊This is also a chance for parents to ask any questions. You don’t want to miss it!
Beginning the week of Monday, September 9 our class will be in session from 8:30am to 11:30am. We will begin our full day schedule on September 16 (8:30am to 3:00pm).
Each family is asked to provide some supplies for their child to use during the school year, 1 box of 24 Crayola crayons (labeled with their name) and 6 glue sticks (these do not need to be labeled). These items may be brought to our Sneak Peek or the first week of school. Additionally, we ask two families each month to be our “Supply Families” to provide a few classroom supplies. More information will be given at Sneak Peek.
For the first day of school, your child will need to bring a full change of clothes (shirt, pants, underwear, and socks) in a gallon zip top bag labeled with their name, a backpack, one healthy snack labeled with their name, and a full water bottle (either reusable or disposable), also labeled with their name. When we start our full day schedule, your child will need to have a twin size flat sheet labeled with their name for our afternoon rest time. Please provide this no later than Thursday, September 12.
If you have any questions, please email me: email@example.com
We are looking forward to meeting you and beginning an exciting new school year!
Mrs. Ellen, Mrs. Baker, and Mrs. Frida
