Art Show / Spring Fundraiser

Please join us for a display of your child’s dazzling artwork at our Art Show on Tuesday May 1st, from 6-7pm! We will also be holding our Spring Fundraiser, which will be an online fundraiser that runs for 24 hours only beginning at 12 noon that day! Parents will have access to the link and computers while at the art show to make your donation. We are excited to announce that The Patterson Foundation of Sarasota County is generously matching all donations from $25 up to $100!

                                     End of The Year Assessments and Conferences!!!

To evaluate how much your child has grown, we will be doing the last series of assessments this month.  We use the Ages and Stages Questionnaire screening to track your child’s growth and development, along with our VPK children taking the last of three annual VPK assessments The combined assessments will give us a baseline evaluation of their physical, emotional, and cognitive growth.  We will use the results to guide our curriculum for those staying with us, and forward the results to future kindergartens for those ready to graduate!  Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held on Wed. 5/2 & Thurs. 5/3 in the evening. Please be sure to sign up for a fifteen-minute time slot. Sign-up sheets are posted in your child’s room. Conferences are mandatory for all VPK students.

 

 

Graduation Is Upon Us!

How time flies!  VPK students will have a special graduation week planned to celebrate the transition from preschool to kindergarten!  The children will be practicing for our commencement ceremony during the week of May 14th. Graduation will be on Tuesday May 22nd. The ceremony is set for 9am at St. Paul’s Church; invitations will be put in your child’s mailbox soon! Siblings and extended family are welcome to attend.  After the ceremony, children are asked to return to their classrooms one final time for pictures, to receive their formal diplomas, and collect their school work portfolios.

 

Please watch for all end-of-the-year class party information posted in your child’s classroom!

 

               Thank you for a Fantastic year!
