Welcome to Garfield Public Preschool Annex 1

Letter to Notify School Community GPPA #1 6-22-21.pdf

Emergency Drill letter 6-9-22.pdf



Students at the preschool have been learning about the world around them. It is wonderful to see the growth your children have made this past year.

Please help your children over the summer get ready for their upcoming adventures. Our four-year-old students will be getting ready to go to kindergarten next year. Please talk to your children about their next steps to help prepare them with this transition, once you receive your letter notifying you of his/her school, be sure to pass by the school before it opens to help your child with this new adventure.

The classroom teachers have been working with your child in preparing them for their next steps. Please continue to work with your child at home by reading and speaking to them about the world around them.

The students are preparing for a moving up ceremony information will be coming through your classroom teachers. Teachers will be sending out flyers with specific information for their end of the year activities, make sure to check backpacks.

Remember that you will receive a letter in the mail in mid-August informing you of your classroom teacher for the following school year, and if your child is moving up to Kindergarten you will receive information regarding your child’s new school. Teachers will be explaining that they will have new friends and a new teacher for the Fall to help support them, please speak to your child regarding this transition to help ease this change for them.

Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to work and play with your children, it has been an honor to be part of your child’s life. Continue to help your child be a lifelong learner by developing and supporting their interests. If you are lucky enough to speak another language remember to model that language for them to acquire and sustain their first language, as you are always your child’s first teacher.

As a reminder, have students wear sunscreen as we go out every day in the morning and afternoon. Students should also wear sneakers. Remember to drive safely in our parking lot we have precious cargo and need to make sure that our students are safe.

We wish all of you a healthy, happy and safe June!
