The Preschool Press

A Note From the Director

Requests for changing your child's days per week schedule are due Monday, February 10th. If you would like to change your child's schedule email me with CHANGE REQUEST in the subject line and let me know the number of days requested. If you prefer specific days, also include that information. I will do my best to accommodate requests.

If you are interested in kindergarten at Marquette, applications are due Tuesday, February 11th.

Mardi Gras is just around the corner! I invite all of you to celebrate with us on Fat Tuesday, February 25th, at 8:30am. If you have a wagon/stroller/cart/bicycle/etc., decorate it as a float and bring it to school. Children may wear costumes, crowns, masks, etc. We will parade around the gym and throw beads to our spectators. Afterwards we will enjoy king cake in the classrooms. Remember the three colors of Mardi Gras: purple stands for justice, green for faith, and gold for power. Since we will only parade on Tuesday, our Mon/Wed/Fri friends are welcome to join us for the festivities!

Save the date for our 2nd annual Spanish and Art Show, April 2nd at 6:30pm! This is a fun night for the whole family. Bring all the kids and join us for a Spanish presentation and then enjoy viewing selections of your child's artwork from the year displayed around the school (Mrs. Bergner has even done projects with children who do not attend school on Mondays, so ALL the children have artwork to display).There will also be opportunities to participate in your very own art masterpieces!

Mrs. Bergner is looking for volunteers to help with set up. If you are interested please email her, sarah.bergner@marquetteschool.org.
