Last year was CCP’s 6th year of running the children’s game area and it was a great fund-raiser for us. We will be doing it again this year, but we are in need of many people to help volunteer to run the games (very easy ticket takers). There are two shifts (11:30-2:30 & 2:15-5:15) and you can do it with a friend or a child 10 years or older. If you are thinking you might like to get involved but aren’t sure of your summer schedule, please let Sue know. We understand it’s hard to commit not knowing your summer plans yet. Sign-up sheets will be posted on the bulletin boards in early spring. 
PRIZES NEEDED: Also, if you have access to “prizes”, we will accept donations, especially McDonald Happy Meal toys, etc.

Please tell a friend or neighbor about the great things we do. We appreciate your word of mouth advertising. Please continue advertising, even throughout the summer. 
The Purple Pre-K class is now filled, but we can put a child’s name on the wait list. All of the other classes have plenty of room.

Sometimes putting words to familiar songs is an easier way to teach children how to spell their name or learn their phone number. Here are a couple of ditties I came up with to teach my daughter many years ago (she’s now a freshman in college!)


(Tune: B-I-N-G-O) 
I know a girl who likes to swing (or any favorite activity) 
And Emily is her name-o 
And Emily is her name-o. 
(We have a different tune for 9 letter names)


(Tune: Are you Sleeping?)

We’ve come to a point in time where we need to include the area code.

Have you filled out your registration forms for next year?
Registration forms, Health Care Summary and Immunization forms have been distributed for the next school year.  If you have not received one, please contact Sue at 763-498-8938. Class objective descriptions can be found in the Preschool Parent Handbook. Please talk with a teacher or director if you have any questions or need more information. If your child will be moving on to kindergarten, please pass the forms to a friend or return them to preschool. Public registration starts January 25th.

It is really important to notify us if, for any reason, your plans for your child changes for next year.  It becomes increasingly difficult to fill empty spots the closer it gets to the start of the preschool year. We need to have the spots filled to be financially viable. 

Therefore, we have instituted a registration policy which includes parents receiving a packet of papers in early summer. All paperwork (except for health forms if not finished) and your September tuition payment will be due by July 20, 2018. We will make reminder phone calls after that date.

We are closed a couple of dates in February. We are closed Friday, Feb. 9th so that all of our staff can attend a two day ELEA in-service conference in Golden Valley. We will also be closed on Monday, February 19th for President’s Day. 
Child Care will be closed these two dates.

Party days for all sessions are as follows:

Orange & Purple: Tuesday, Feb. 13th 
Yellow & Blue: Wednesday, February 14th  
Pink: Friday, Feb. 16th

If your child would like to participate in handing out Valentines and /or small party treats to their classmates, you may want to start him/her signing them early. We want this to be a happy  experience rather than overwhelming!  We decorate Valentine bags as part of our art curriculum. All Valentines should be labeled:
    To: My Friend
      From: Your child’s name
Please do not write your child’s classmates’ names on the Valentines as it makes passing them out so much more time-consuming. There are 20 kids in most of the classes. Ten in Pink.

On Wednesday, February 21st and Thursday, February 22nd     the Pre-K (blue & purple) sessions will be taking a bus to Andy’s Hometowne Pizza in Albertville (by Country Inn Suites). This is part of their “Pizza Party” curriculum and they will get a tour, help make pizzas and enjoy eating them as their snack. (Let us know of allergy concerns).

Permission slips will be passed out the beginning of February and there will be a small fee. This trip will take place during class time and we can take up to five chaperones per class.

Since we have a number of new families this year, I wanted to make you aware that we will be holding summer camps the four Tuesdays in June. The time is from 9:00 a.m.-noon. Cost is $25/session and these are open to any 3-5 year olds (toilet trained). It’s a nice introduction to our facility for our new students, too. Registration forms will be handed out the beginning of May.
