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, September 6th is Superhero Day! Everyone at Willson is a superhero every day, but on Friday you can wear a tshirt or cape or whatever to show us your superhero style! It should be a super fun day since there are no evil villains roaming our hallways!

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.

Try to make a yummy self portrait! Broccoli hair, cucumber eyes, and a big cheesy grin would be a healthy and creative treat. Give the kiddos full control and let them make portraits of the grown ups too!

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!

Nutrislice App

We no longer send home printed menus for meals at Willson. AM students receive breakfast and PM students have lunch every day. You can download the Nutrislice app to review the menu for the week and let your kiddo know what yummy food they will have at school that day!

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. 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.

Tuesday, September 24th - The Dentist is coming!

Great news! Our school has partnered with Indiana Dental Outreach…the mobile dentists to offer in-school dental care. CLICK HERE to sign up your child today.

Even better, dental care is usually at no cost to you. All insurance is accepted including Medicaid and Hoosier Healthwise. A low cost self-pay option is available for those without insurance.

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.
