Family Fun!

The Family Fun section of our digital newsletter will focus on a fun, family activity that reinforces the theme that we are working on in school. It will be a story, a song, or an outdoor activity that everyone can work on together.

Fire safety may not be a "fun" topic, but it is a very important one. Get your family together and go through the fire escape plan below. Make sure you have working smoke detectors in your home! When the Crawfordsville Fire Department visits on Wednesday, they will show our students what they wear and what they do during a fire. Hopefully this is information your family will never need, but it's great to be prepared!

Take some snapshots or video of your family enjoying this activity and send them through the Willson Preschool Facebook page. We will share your pictures so everyone can see our awesome Willson families!

It finally feels like fall!

With the cooler temperatures please make sure to dress your child appropriately. We go outside everyday as long as the playground is not wet. All jackets need to have first and last name written clearly on the tag so we can reunite with it's rightful owner if it's lost. Thank you!

Transportation notes

We have already had several children returned to school because there is no one to meet them at the bus stop. It's impossible for the drivers to arrive at exactly the same time every day due to traffic, trains, construction and varying schedules. Please be ready and waiting 15 minutes before your scheduled pick up and drop off time. Please read the transportation notice below!

If your child misses the bus picking them up and you can bring them to school, please drop off in car line. Our car line meets in the parking lot off Wabash Ave. Doors do not open for school until 7:50 AM for AM classes and 11:20 AM for PM classes. You cannot drop off earlier than those times.
