Dear Greendell Families,

May is here and the children have been busy this week making some beautiful artwork for a very special person in their lives! Our Greendell learners are also enjoying seeing the results of their hard work and investigations: beautiful butterflies emerging from their chrysalises, pretty plants sprouting from their seeds, and drawbridges lowering from carefully constructed castles. When school is fun, you can't help but love learning!

I hope your family has a lovely weekend and a very Happy Mother's Day!

Greendell Social Emotional Learning Survey - End of Year

This Spring, Greendell families participated in a survey on the social emotional learning of their children in our classes. In order to measure the social emotional growth of our Greendell learners, we are repeating the survey to collect data on their social emotional development this year. Please help us by taking the end of the year survey here.

Thank you so much for your time and participation!

PAUSD's Annual Data Update (ADU)

Each year the district requires families to update their information in Infinite Campus. This is to ensure the district has the most current contact information and any health updates for your child.

Current PAUSD families should have received a message on Monday, May 3rd with instructions on how to complete this Annual Data Update (ADU). The deadline for submitting the ADU is Friday, May 21, 2021.

If families encounter any errors, they can file a Let’s Talk question using the button “Annual Data Update Assistance”. A link will also be included to make an appointment at the district office for any PAUSD family that needs access to a computer, or needs personal assistance completing the process.

Please let us know if you have any questions about the PAUSD Annual Data Update.

PreSchool Family Registration is 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.
