Welcome to Garfield Public Preschool Annex 1


We hope that you and your family are well. GPPA 1 would like to thank all of the families that supported our Food Drive and our fundraiser in the month of November. The students will be involved in a variety of activities this month to help them develop their social skills. Our Family Fun Activity will be making Gingerbread Houses together at home, the school will be sending the supplies you need to create the Gingerbread House – remember to send pictures to your child’s classroom teacher to post in a video.

Make sure to sign-up for Parent Conferences that will be held on Tuesday, December 7th and Wednesday, December 8th and a snow date make up session for Thursday, December 9th. Teachers will be able to share your child’s academic and social progress; this is a great time to have a discussion with your teacher in a one on one setting.

As a reminder, remember to drive safely in our parking lot we have precious cargo and need to make sure that our students are safe. Safety protocols are always in check; please make sure that you inform teachers if you will be picking up your child early, so that the office is aware that you will be coming into the school. Make sure that if you are sending someone to pick up your child that they are 18 years old or older and are on the list of allowed persons to pick up your child.

If you have any questions, regarding your child or the preschool program, please feel free to contact me. Remember if you want to talk to the teachers, feel free to e-mail them or call to schedule an appointment, they look forward to hearing from you.

We will have a half-day session on December 23rd. School will be closed from December 24th till January 1st. School opens on January 3rd!

GPPA 1 wishes all of you a happy and safe December Break!
