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.

Sing and dance along with the classic "If You're Happy" song and talk about how you're feeling and why. Children this age have very strong emotions! Learning how to label a feeling and talking about it can help so much. Talking and singing with our families make us feel loved!

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!

September Family Project!

Never feel bored again! Visit the Crawfordsville District Public Library and celebrate September being Library Card Sign up Month. A library card is free and gives you access to books, videos, magazines, and so much more. Our library also has a lot of fun activities for families. Stop by the circulation desk and sign up for your card and grab a calendar of events. Make sure you bring a piece of mail with your name and Crawfordsville address so they can verify your residency. Check out all that they offer on their website

* There is a note in your child's folder to take to the library. When your child, or you, sign up for a library card they will stamp it. Please return it to school and we will hang them up so everyone can feel proud of their new library card!

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.

The dentist can make us feel scared! Grown ups talking about the dentist in a positive way and helping us look at our teeth in the mirror can help us feel excited about healthy teeth.

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.
