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.

As a family, watch the video below of Lois Ehler's book Eating the Alphabet. Look at all the different foods and discuss what you like and what you do not enjoy. Maybe you'll see something new that you've never tried before. Everyone can try it together!

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!

It's getting colder!

With the colder temperatures that have arrived 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.
