Ann Reid Families,

The final days of school will be here before we know it. Families often reach out at this time to ask about how to say, “Thank You” to our staff for all their hard work and dedication. If you are interested, then our Home and School has helped to establish a program where families can contribute money towards gift cards for our staff. Staff members are then able to select the amount and vendor of their liking.

Teacher/Staff gift cards Orders due: May 20th

All students returning to preschool this year should complete our Online Annual Update. The Online Annual Update for returning families must be completed by May 31, 2021. We will not be able to assign your student to a teacher or schedule for the 2021-2022 school year until the Online Annual Update is completed. Read more information about this process and accessing additional resources HERE.
