August Update

I hope you are having an enjoyable summer. It’s hard to believe that back-to-school orientation is just a few weeks away!

Perry Park’s summer program was held for three weeks this past July. We all had a lot of fun and look forward to offering it next summer; July 8 – 25, 2019.

We are excited to announce that Sarah Perry will lead Tot Yoga at PPP this fall.

Children 18 months – 3 years, along with a caregiver, are invited to join. Sarah is a certified yoga instructor as well as an assistant teacher at PPP. The six-class session will be held on Tuesday mornings in Fellowship Hall from 9:30-10:15 for a cost of $60. The class begins on Tuesday 9/25 and ends on Tuesday 10/30. Please register on our website; perryparkpreschool.com or you may call the school to register.

Orientation visits for the fall program will be held Wednesday, September 5th and Friday, September 7th. Please come in anytime between 9:00 -11:00 with your child.

The children will have the opportunity to visit with teachers and friends and explore the classroom before the start of school. Parents will receive a handbook, a school calendar and a family directory as well as other information.

Please bring with you:

*completed enrollment and emergency forms. Be sure to list local contacts for emergency purposes- someone who can come to the school just in case you can not be reached.

*medical and immunization forms with the date of the lead tests clearly stated.

–No child will be able to start school without this information.

*two photos (4×6 or smaller) of your child to use in school to label his/her cubby and snack time place card and

* first tuition payment.

The teachers have been busy preparing the classroom and planning the curriculum in anticipation of the new school year. Bridget Grenham is the Yellow Apple group teacher (4&5- year olds).

I will assist the Yellow Apple group each morning. Ilene Kozdra is the Red Apple group teacher (3&4-year olds). Sherry DePaolo will assist the Red Apple group on Tuesdays, Thursdays and alternate Mondays. Sarah Perry will assist the Red Apple group on Wednesdays, Fridays and alternate Mondays. One of the great aspects of our program is that the staff works together in all areas of the classroom throughout the morning and comes to know every child on an individual basis. Please be sure to meet the teachers at orientation. They will be happy to answer any questions you might have.

During your orientation visit there will be information and a signup sheet for those interested in joining our Parent Group. The parent group organizes social events outside of the regular classroom setting. Please let me know if you would like to help plan the first group outing in October.

Mark your calendar! The annual Ice Cream Social and preschool Open House is scheduled for Tuesday, October 2nd from 6:00 – 7:00 P.M. More information on this evening will come home in September.

At this time there are limited openings for the fall program with a waitlist for Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please let me know if you need to make changes to your schedule or if you will not be attending PPP as planned. There is space available for Lunch Bunch which is held from 11:45-1:00 on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. A signup sheet will be available during orientation for those who may like to sign up.

Lunch Bunch will begin on Wednesday, September 19th.

I will be in and out of the classroom frequently during the next few weeks so leave a message at (978) 374-6678 if I can help you in any way. I can also easily be reached through email: perryparkpreschool@gmail.com.

Enjoy these last few weeks of summer! School begins on Monday, September 10th.
