Dear Families,

Our successful year in the preschool is finally coming to an end. We have enjoyed your children and all of their hard work this year.

 Please make sure to take home all the projects and letters from your child’s file in the XDC box, and his cubbie in the preschool. If you are missing any belongings, check with your preschool teacher or in the lost and found, located the West hallway of the main building.

EMERGENCY KITS

The emergency kits will be passed on to the kindergarten teachers for the students moving on and we will keep the rest in preschool. Let us know if you would like to update these.

NOTES:

Spare clothes and keepsake books will also be sent home. If your child attends XDC, these items will be sent there in a bag with your child’s name on it. Please make sure they go home with them.

Have a wonderful summer! For all those preschoolers moving on, we will miss you dearly. For those returning, we will be waiting for you in August!

Thank you for all you wonderful support this year and may God bless your families!
