Vroom! Vroom! Beep! Beep! It's Transportation Week - September 30th - October 4th

We will be learning all about things that zip, zoom, and fly! Some special visitors will be coming to show us their vehicles. A street sweeper, a tow truck and a police car will be stopping by for all of us to see. It will be a super fun week!

Fun Friday!

We will try to have a fun activity for the whole school every Friday. Information will be posted here, on our Willson Preschool Facebook page, flyers and Class Dojo!

Since we are having visitors with special vehicles throughout the week , there will be no fun Friday.

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.

Paper airplanes can be a super fun family activity! Watch the video below and follow the directions. Then, get creative and make your own design! See who's airplane will fly the farthest, the highest and the fastest!

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!

October Family Literacy Night - Tuesday, October 29th

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.
