Body Week - August 26th - 30th

We will be working hard to learn our body parts next week. Some of our classes will come home with brain headbands and others will make hand skeletons with q-tips. A quick round of head, shoulders, knees and toes will get our blood pumping while we learn some major body parts.

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, and flyers in the folders.

Friday, August 30th is Crazy Hair Day! Get out the gel and hairspray and show us your craziest 'do!

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.

The Hokey Pokey is still a favorite after all these years! Grown ups should go ahead and join in and count it as your cardio for the day. Movement and music really help this age group absorb all this important information. They are never "just playing" at this age, they are really learning!

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!

Picture Day

Pettit Pictures will be here Wednesday, September 4th for Preschool picture day! A picture packet should have been sent home in your child's folder this week. If your student does not attend class at Willson on Wednesdays, you may bring them that day at 8:00 AM or 11:30 AM to have their photo taken. If that time does not work for you, we will have retakes in the near future. Everyone's picture will be taken that day and if you wish to buy a portrait package please send the order form with your money ON PICTURE DAY! If you do not wish to purchase any photos on that day, you can order them online for up to a year after they were taken.

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.
