A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR
HAPPY NEW YEAR
We welcome everyone back from Winter Break and wish you all a Happy New Year!
Our security door , located just as you enter the classroom hallway, is locked between pick-up and drop-off time each day. Office staff can buzz you in from the outside. Push the door to open it from the inside.
Applications are available online for the coming year at www.wasatchpreschool.org and in the office on January 4th 2016. Returning students will find forms in their child’s file folder at pick-up time. The deadline for registering returning students is February, 1st, 2016. All children and siblings of children already attending Wasatch Preschool and members of Wasatch Presbyterian church register by this deadline and get first choice of available classes. The deadline for new students is March 1st, 2016. We place students into available spaces in random order until all openings are taken and notify parents of results shortly after each deadline. New Waiting Lists begin after the program is full. Please remember: we guarantee returning students a place in the school and usually the number of days desired but there are limited openings both morning and afternoon. Some families who want to morning classes may get an afternoon placement and others who prefer afternoon may be placed in the morning.
TOURS OF SCHOOL
Tours of our school are every Tuesday at 10:00 am.
DRESS FOR THE COLD
We remind you to dress your children to play outdoors. They play outside unless the health department recommends we stay indoors or when snow falls from the playground roof.
DECREASE POLLUTION ON OUR PLAYGROUND
Did you know that idling an engine for 10 seconds uses more gas than shutting off and restarting a car? And car exhaust is dirtier from an idling car than a moving one? Keep the air around our school cleaner by shutting off cars when waiting in the parking lot.
Bully Prevention Education
It is never too early to begin teaching children appropriate behavior for school. One easy way to do this is to sit down with your children and set goals for the New Year. For young children the goals should be short and concisely worded. I suggest only two or three that include things that are easy for you to keep track of with a chart and stickers. I encourage you to make one goal be: “Do something kind for someone at school today.” This will encourage your child to look out for others at school and discourage “Bullying” behaviors. Bullying is such a huge issue both in schools and on the internet that you might as well get the word out to your children early that these negative behaviors are not appropriate. We appreciate all the great parental support for our students and hope you will seriously consider making this idea a part or your child’s New Year.
