Fall Open House
Fall Open House will be held on Friday, August 25 from 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. This is a time for your child to see their classroom and meet their teacher, and for you to finalize paperwork.
Registration Packet pages 6–8 with the Student Health Record and Certificate of Immunization are due at the Fall Open House. This paperwork must be signed by your child’s doctor after June 1, 2017 and your child cannot attend classes until these documents are on file. (Also, the state requires their Immunization Record form to be completed, not a printout from your doctor. Please transfer records to that form before submitting.)
Mandatory orientations for parents will be held during the second week of school. This is the one meeting of members from the nonprofit corporation of Community Preschool, Inc and every family is required to attend one of the meetings. Here are the dates and times:

It is your responsibility to read and familiarize yourself with the rules, regulations, and procedures in the Community Preschool Parent Handbook. Please review it prior to Parent Orientation. At your orientation, you will need to sign a form acknowledging that you’ve read it and accept the policies included in it.
We’ve posted The Parent Helper newsletter for the month of May.
Here are a few highlights:

Scholastic Book Orders
Each month you have an opportunity to purchase affordable books for your child through Scholastic. It is a great program and each book you purchase earns points for Community Preschool to purchase educational materials and books for the classrooms.
Go to scholastic.com/readingclub and create an account with the code GWCML. If you prefer, you can complete a paper order and turn it in at preschool. If you have any questions please contact Ms. Tammy.
Our last book order for this Spring has been placed. We’ll begin orders again in the Fall!

Tuition for First Quarter
Due Tuesday, August 1
Tuition for the fourth quarter is due by Tuesday, August 1, 2017. Please place your tuition payment in the Treasurer’s lock box, located on the northwest wall in the main school hallway. Make checks payable to “Community Preschool” and add your child’s name and class in the memo of the check to ensure correct credit to your account.
Click here to visit the Tuition and Schedule page and find the tuition amount for your child’s class.
Contact the treasurer Emily M. with any questions about tuition. If you are having difficulty with paying tuition according to the schedule, please contact us immediately. We are willing to work with you, but it is best to have a plan before tuition is due and late fees are incurred.
Changes for the 2017–2018 School Year
Due to increasing costs, the board recently voted to increase the tuition rate at Community Preschool as of the 2017–2018 school year. The current rate is $3.50 per hour, and it will be increased to $4.00 per hour. If you have any questions about this change, please feel free to contact our President, Hanna.
Beginning next Fall, Mrs. Martinez’s Afternoon 4s Class will have the assistance of a co-teacher, and will require only one parent-helper per class. Therefore, the tuition for this class will be slightly higher at $4.50 per hour. If your family is unable to offer as much time to volunteer for parent-helping, this might be a good option for you.
