Join the Board

Attention all of you energetic, organized, self motivated people! Board elections are going to be held in December to fill open positions for the 2018–2019 school year. Serving is a two-year commitment, and a great way to get involved in your child’s education and the success of our preschool!

In return for serving on the board, officers receive:

  • A 10% tuition discount,
  • An exemption from community job assignments,
  • First priority for class registration and parent-help signup.

The open positions include:

  • President (Must have served on the board previously to run for this position),
  • Treasurer,
  • Publicity,
  • Committees.

Complete job descriptions are posted on the bulletin board in the hallway. Or you can e-mail Hanna Copeland for more information or to ask any questions.

If you are interested in running: Write a Letter of Intent stating the position, why you are qualified for/interested in that position (background, personality traits, etc.), and any personal or school-related information you’d like to include (which classes your children have been in, etc.). A small photo may be included with your Letter of Intent to help parents recognize you when voting.

Letters are due by noon on December 1. Place your typed letter in the President’s bin in the hallway (next to Ms. Jodie’s door) or e-mail it to  Hanna Copeland by December 1. Voting will take place December 15–22 and results of the election will be available no later than January 8.


 
 

Holiday Concerts

The children are practicing holiday songs for our annual holiday party and sing-a-long. You are invited to come and bring your family and friends to share the fun.

The event will be held in the gym on Tuesday, December 19 and Wednesday, December 20 beginning at 10:30 a.m. We’ll start with a sing-a-long concert, and then enjoy treats. The featured guest, Santa, will visit with the children in the room next to Mrs. Martinez’s classroom.

Classes should attend the following concert times:

Tuesday, December 19

Miss Jill’s 3s TR
Mrs. Martinez’s 3s TR
Mrs. Martinez’s 4s PM MTR

Wednesday, December 20

Miss Jill’s 3s MW
Mrs. Martinez’s 4s MWF
Ms. Jodie’s Pre-K MTWR

Miss Jill’s 2s class is invited to visit Santa and enjoy snacks on either day.

There will be no afternoon 4s class on Tuesday, but your class is invited to attend on Tuesday morning. Please see Mrs. Martinez for more information.

We ask that you bring fruit, veggies, snacks, or cookies to share. There will be a Signup Genius sent out for snacks. Please remember that food should comply with the school guidelines: all items must be store-purchased and nut free. If you are scheduled for parent-helping that day, please bring milk or juice to share.

Students will return to their classrooms after the concert, and parents will sign them out before going back to the gym for the party and treats.


The Giving Tree

The Giving Tree is our way of helping our Community Preschool families who are in need. The Giving Tree is located in the hallway, directly below the yellow photo bulletin board. Please choose a gift card from the tree, purchase it, and return it to the treasurer’s box in the hallway.

We also have a box for non-perishable food items located under the Giving Tree.

Please choose to donate as you wish. We really appreciate your generosity!

Tuition for Third Quarter
Due Friday, December 8

Tuition for the third quarter is due by Friday, December 8, 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.


Scholastic Book Orders:
Next Order in January

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 R3Q3J. You will see Ms. Tammy Friske’s name for the order. If you prefer, you can complete a paper order and turn it in at preschool. If you have any questions please contact Ms. Tammy.
