What’s Happening in Our Community

Deadline: Scholastic Book Order

Our last Scholastic Book Order for the school year is due today, Thursday, April 28. Be sure to submit your orders and get some new books to read over the summer!

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.

A Few Playground Workday Needs
The playground workday is on Saturday. We need to ask to borrow a few things, and we’d really appreciate your help:

• electric drills
• pitch forks
• wheelbarrows
• screwdrivers and hammers

Please let Mrs. Martinez know as soon as possible if you can help by lending us any of these tools.

Thank you!

Playground Workday / April 30

Our preschool has put in so many hours to earn money and improve the playground for our children. Join us and help us take another step forward by attending the Playground Workday on Saturday, April 30 beginning at 8:00 a.m. Babysitters will be available from 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.

Tasks to Complete:

  • Replacing pea gravel and sand in areas that need to be restored.
  • Installing three garden beds.
  • Installing a bridge.
  • Pulling weeds.

If you can donate the use of a bobcat/skidster and the driving skills to help move rock and sand, please contact Mrs. Martinez.

Donate your time to babysit so others can complete the work. Please talk to Mrs. Martinez before April 22 if you can help.

Bricks are Back!

For a limited time, we’re offering a second chance to order a commemorative playground brick. Place your order between Registration on March 4, and the last day of school on May 20. The completed bricks will be placed on the playground this summer and you can plan to take pictures at Fall Open House!

Brick prices are as follows:

4″ x 8″ (3 lines of text) = $85
8″ x 8″ (8 lines of text) = $150

We’ll have a Playground Brick table at both Registration on March 4 and the Pancake Breakfast and Silent Auction on March 12. Start thinking about the text you’d like to appear on your brick, grab a Playground Brick order form, and bring your checkbook along. Or you can also submit your order form with payment in the treasurer’s lockbox in the hallway at Community Preschool. Take a moment to see the bricks already placed on the playground for ideas.

Don’t miss this chance to leave your own personalized message in stone at Community Preschool!

Updated Snack Policy

We had our Larimer County Health Inspection a few weeks ago, and we are required to make a few changes to our snack policy.

  • Unfortunately, any refrigerated dairy items such as cheese and yogurt are no longer allowed. This new ruling is due to the risk of food poisoning if items are not properly refrigerated.
  • On the bright side, we are now able to offer all fruits and vegetables except melons. All produce items must be washed at the kitchen sink by the window in the CPS-labeled colander before serving, unless they come in a sealed pre­packaged container.

This policy goes into effect after spring break on April 11, 2016. If you have any questions, please ask Ms. Tammy.

You can access an updated snack list by clicking here.

Thank you for being patient and understanding about the new regulations, and helping us offer snacks that are safe and healthy!
