Parent Meeting was March 14th

Our final parent meeting was held March 14th at 5:30 p.m. It was held at Woodlawn Preschool 2, 765 Upton. At the meeting we discussed assessments, parent conferences, closed dates for conferences, spring break, fire house trip, Mom’s Day and the May 19th End of the Year Celebration.

A drawing for gift cards was held with two lucky parent winners.

Thank you to all the parents who made it.

Parent Teacher Conferences Success

Teacher and parent teacher conferences were held. This opportunity to sit down and hear what great things your child learned and what thing you can help with to master a skill was priceless. Please continue to support your child and attend all parent meetings and conferences. Show your child that education is important.

Teachers shared information regarding kindergarten registration .

Woodlawn was closed March 30 and 31 so that staff could accommodate our parents.

 

Dads Days were March 8th and 9th.

The children celebrated with Dads on March 8 and 9.  They planned a special surprise that was shared with the dad.

Music Make the World Go Round

Woodlawn Preschool teaching staff participated in music training with the Community Music School. The training was made possible by a grant from the Jacquelyn H Miller Endowment Fund of the Michigan Association for the Education Of Young Children. Teachers participated in the training with trainer, Teri Noaeill from the Community Music School of Battle Creek.  The goal was to support teachers in adding more music as art and enjoyment in the early childhood classrooms.

The teachers enjoyed the training and wish they could have even more. The teachers were given a copy of the CD that the instructor used so they can continue with what they have learned.  Children moved to music using parachutes, puppets and rhythm instruments. The teachers said it was fun for the children and a wonderful learning experience for them.

Research shows that music enhances skills that children use in other areas of learning. Exposing children to music during these early years helps them learn sounds and meaning of words.  Music helps strengthen memory skills, supports creativity, concentration and cooperation.

The Music Center was selected by Woodlawn Preschool.  The products, services and philosophical positions presented do not reflect an endorsement by the Michigan Association for the Education of Young Children.

New policy on closing

February 1st our Executive Committee of our Governing Board determined that Woodlawn Preschool will no longer automatically follow Lakeview School District when it closes. Closings will be determined by the Executive Director of Woodlawn Preschool. Thank you for your cooperation and patience as we work to best serve our families and our program staff.

Executive Director, Woodlawn Preschool

Parents as Partners
