What's Happening at Preschool?
Below you will be able to find all current events and any fundraisers we are organizing! All proceeds we raise go directly to the preschool to enhance learning through play!
!Due to Covid-19, we do not have any events currently available, we have left previous events on the page for new families to get a feel of what a normal school year has to offer!
Please see the attached links to view our upcoming Meeting and Board of Directors Nomination information/forms. As a new school year approaches we are holding our Spring meeting and invite the community to attend. If you have ever thought of being a part of the preschool, please consider putting in a nomination to join the board, especially if you have a passion to volunteer/give back within the community or skills that would be helpful in any of the listed board positions. We are always happy to have more nominees available than board positions to fill. If you happen to miss the deadline, we can accept "floor nominations" but if possible, please have your nominations submitted by the 16th.
