Partnering with the Fairplay Library

Library Time

We've partnered with the Fairplay Library to take each classroom to participate in their "Storytime"!

Our full-day classes will take a walking field trip (weather depending) on the second and fourth Wednesday.

The part day morning classes (storytime is not offered in the afternoons) will attend the third Wednesday of the month.

The Fairplay Library Storytime is OPEN to everyone!

If you are able to take your child or would like to chaperone, we'd love for you to do so!

Please talk to your child's teacher for more information or questions.

Fill out the Permission Form below!!

Picture Day - Thursday, September 15

This Thursday is our District wide picture day.

I know several students do not have a scheduled class on Thursdays, my apologies for such an inconvenience. Our district is at the mercy of the photographer's schedule.

If your child doesn't attend school on Thursdays - we have a time for them to take pictures!

Please bring your child to the preschool from 8:00-9:00 am. You can walk your child down to the photographer - say "Cheese"!

Payment envelopes are at Michelle's desk or you can order online.
