Dear Park’s Edge Preschool Families:

The WOYC serves as a time to reaffirm our commitment to ensuring that every child experiences the type of environment that promotes learning…at home, school, and in the community. Thank you, Danka Shon, Gracias, Merci…thanks can be said in so many ways…and to all the parents for making staff feel extra special by treating them throughout the Week of the Young Child—THANK YOU! Give yourself and your child a big hug…you deserve it! WOYC continues with the‘Teacher Appreciation Annual Luncheon’…thank you families for your generosity! A shout out to Kate Egan-Thank You!

The WOYC Celebration will conclude with a special‘Annual Teacher Appreciation Luncheon’.This year the luncheon will be held on the outdoor patio ahead of us in our lower level preschool classrooms. The classrooms are getting a huge makeover. Fall 2017 we added fresh paint, updated window valances and new cubbies updated the classrooms and have already been a huge improvement. Late May 2019—a brand new floor will complete the classroom makeover and new doors will be added to the classroom to effectively accommodate the security measures that will be put in place by the end of summer. The preschool classrooms will be temporarily moved to Kurth Hall and regular classroom groups and activities will be held in there from Tuesday, May 28 through Thursday, June 13th. We thank you in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. Regular activities in the preschool classrooms will resume the week of June17, 2019. See the newsletter summer enrollment survey was due by Friday, April 26thso please be sure to return your reservation response.Yes, it looks like we’re going to have another action-packed, fun-filled summer at PEP!
