November 4th - 8th - Owl and Bat Week

Owls and bats are super awesome night-time creatures! Some people think they are creepy and scary, but we will talk about why they are actually really cool!

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 November 8th - A Naturalist from Turkey Run will visit to let us see, touch and hear wildlife that is native to Indiana.

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.

Bats are really amazing! Check out the video below to learn 3 fun facts about them.

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!

3 Fun Facts About Bats!

Picture Retakes - Wednesday, November 6th

Picture Retake day will be Wednesday November 6th. If you would like to have retakes, you must send in your original picture packet on this day. If your child does not attend school on Wednesdays you may bring them between 10:00 and 11:00 AM to have their picture taken. If your child has enrolled after September 4th you should have received a picture order form. Please send the completed form with payment on that day if you wish to purchase a portrait package. Please call the Willson office if you need an order form or if you have any questions.

It's getting colder!

With the cooler temperatures please make sure to dress your child appropriately. We go outside everyday as long as the playground is not wet. All jackets, hats and gloves need to have first and last name written clearly on the tag so we can reunite with it's rightful owner if it's lost. Thank you!

Transportation notes

We are still having 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.
