April 2017 Newsletter

Dear Northminster Preschool Parents and Friends:

Wow!  It’s spring already?  It never ceases to amaze me how the time goes by so fast and your little ones grow by leaps and bounds!  

Since it is now April, I want to remind parents that if you want to schedule a conference with your child’s teacher to check on their progress, please feel free to do so.  We do not set aside a specific conference week, so if you feel you need to touch base with your child’s teacher feel free to ask for one.  

The office continues to work on classroom assignments for the summer and next fall.  If you signed up for Summer, we will be sending out a letter at the beginning of June with classroom and teacher assignments.  The fall class assignment letter will go out during the summer.

We have Bubblemania coming on April 18th and 19th at 10:30 a.m. in Congdon Hall.  This is our April enrichment program provided by funds raised by the parent group!  Parents are always welcome to attend.

We also have our spring pictures Pony Pictures (yes a live pony!).  If you want to dress your child up in western wear the pictures will be taken April 11th and 12th.   Part of the proceeds are given to the preschool for the pictures you buy.

On April 11, 2017 the preschool will be doing a dine and donate fundraiser at Boudin Bakery on Balboa Avenue from 4-8 p.m.  There will be flyers on each classroom table.  30% of sales come back to the preschool.  You must take a flyer in order for the preschool to get credit for your order.

The classrooms will be celebrating Easter on April 13th and 14th with special parties and a class by class Easter Egg Hunt.  Please check with your teacher for special instructions and classroom sign-ups.

The Parent Group is looking for new parents to become a part of the wonderful Northminster Preschool tradition.  The preschool relies heavily on the parent group to fundraise for classroom improvements and manipulatives, playground and facility improvements and special classroom supplies.  Please consider becoming a part of next year’s parent group. The parent group is meeting Friday, April 14th in the Fireside room.  Lunch will be prepared for the parents and if you come, your child can eat lunch with the other children for free (bring a lunch for them).

I want to thank you  for your time, hard work and commitment to our preschool.  Thank you for all that you do for us and thank you for sharing your children with us!
