Fall Festival!

Our first Family Literacy Night of this school year will be a Fall Festival. Join us at Willson on Wednesday, September 25th from 5:30 to 7:00 PM. There will be carnival games for the children and lots of prizes! Bring the whole family to join in the fun.

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!

Friday, September 27th is Homemade Applesauce Day! We will cook the apples in crockpots and mash them with hand cranked grinders. Only a little bit of sugar will be added for taste. After all that hard work we will enjoy a healthy and delicious treat!

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.

Listen to "Ten Apples Up On Top" by Dr. Seuss and then try the STEM activity pictured below. Balancing apples can be pretty tricky, but give it a try! Let's see how high you can stack them and how far you can walk with one on your head.

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!

September Family Project!

Visit the Crawfordsville District Public Library and celebrate September being Library Card Sign up Month. A library card is free and gives you access to books, videos, magazines, and so much more. Our library also has a lot of fun activities for families. Stop by the circulation desk and sign up for your card and grab a calendar of events. Make sure you bring a piece of mail with your name and Crawfordsville address so they can verify your residency. Check out all that they offer on their website

* There is a note in your child's folder to take to the library. When your child, or you, sign up for a library card they will stamp it. Please return it to school and we will hang them up so everyone can talk about their new library cards! There is still plenty of time left in September to do this family project. If you have misplaced your paper to take to the library, just call the office and we'll be happy to send home a new one!

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.
