The Greendell Gosling Flyer-27th Ed

April 21, 2021

Dear Greendell Families,

I hope your family had a lovely Spring Break! The children settled right back into the school routine, I think we had all missed being together at school! My break was busy getting ready for a new addition to our family - we adopted a dog from a rescue organization. Callie is a bundle of energy and such a sweetie!


It is hard to believe April is nearly over and the end of the year is almost here! Our Greendell learners have made such progress. When I visit our classes, I am always amazed by their work and the conversations they have with me and their friends. They continue to learn and grow every day.


And I know I will be again seeing incredible growth when I visit our classrooms as we wrap up our year and prepare for transitioning our students and families to the next step. They will be ready, it just takes me a little bit longer to be ready to see them go!


Happy Earth Day!


Principal Shannon

Celebrating Spring at Greendell

Our Greendell classes are celebrating Earth Day with hands-on activities, such as planting seeds and observing how their plants grow. They are learning about the life cycles of plants and animals and seeing it firsthand.

PreSchool Family Registration is Now Open for 2021-2022

Fall enrollment is open for Greendell Families who are interested in in joining our PreSchool Family (PSF) program!


PSF is a parent education program serving families with children ages birth through five years. The program began in 1946 and is part of the Palo Alto Adult School under the auspices of the Palo Alto Unified School District. The program is designed to offer parents an opportunity to learn about parenting and actively participate in their child's education. For children, the program offers a developmentally appropriate, play-based, educational experience.


PreSchool Family will be offering the following classes this Fall:


0-6 month, 6-12 month and 12-24 month classes, for parents with their babies and toddlers.These classes meet one day each week. Parent education is included in the day class or in a separate evening meeting twice a month.


Classes for 2 year olds, 3 year olds and 4 year olds. For these multi-day classes, parents attend with their child one day each week. Parent education takes place twice a month, in the afternoon for our nap classes and in the evenings for all other classes.


Our Dinner class is a mixed age preschool class. Parents come with their child in the late afternoon one day each week. Parent education is included in the class.
