Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!


2012 - 2013 School Year
     Registration is now open to new families for the 2012-2013 school year. If you have not turned in your registration form and fee, please do so ASAP!!  All open spots are filled on a first come, first serve basis.

Pasta Night Fundraiser
     Our next Pasta Night Fundraiser is on Tuesday, March 6th.  This will be during the Kindergarten and First Grade concerts.  We are looking for more volunteers to help during this popular event! This is the last chance to fulfill the 2 hour volunteer requirement.  Please let us know if you are able to help.
     Each family is also responsible for bringing one package of cookies to serve at our dinner.  All proceeds from this fundraiser benefit our preschool program.

Grant
     If you have had the opportunity to stop in the preschool lately, you may have noticed a few new things.  Last fall, we applied for and received a grant allowing us to purchase new items for the children to use.  This includes a new (larger) carpet for our group time, a table, large lego blocks, mirrors and other science materials, are just to name a few.
     We were able to apply for this grant due to our continued work regarding the Quality Rating System (QRS) developed by the Department of Human Services.  The funding was made possible by the United Way of Central Iowa Women's Leadership Connection.  We greatly appreciate their support!!!
Spring Break
    As you may recall, our school calendar follow that of the Van Meter Schools.  Therefore, Spring Break is from Friday, March 16th - Monday, March 26th.
    Have a great time!!


Elementary Carnival
     The Elementary Carnival is on Saturday, March 3rd.  Bring your family out for a fun-filled evening from 5:30 - 8:30.  There will be a silent auction (including a "game night" preschool basket :), raffles and lots of games!
     Since this is an Elementary fundraiser, it will does not count toward your volunteer hours requirement.
