Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! Your child is attending a 5 Star rated Step Up to Quality preschool program - the highest rating of preschools in the state of Ohio. This is a huge accomplishment for the school and we strive to continue this level of excellence.
You are a valuable part of the education for your child. Preschool is the first step in the long process of your child's education. It is the foundation of their school experience. We encourage you to become involved in school by attending the various preschool events; including conferences, Curriculum Night, Grandparent's Day, Read with Your Child Day, Moments with mom, Daddy's Day and the Spring Concert.
Reading with your child can be a special time and will deepen the love of learning. Please take time to read with your child each day. The preschool years are a valuable time that can strengthen interest in reading, writing and increase vocabulary.
Your child's teacher will communicate with you using the communication folder given to your child at the start of school. Please remember that it is your responsibility to remove items from your child's folder each day. This is a great time to talk to your child(ren) about the things they have done at school and allow students to show off their hard work! Additionally, materials are often sent home with a time sensitive nature. Daily backpack checks will make sure you don't miss out on the activities and events at HELC.
Remember, you are setting the foundation for the importance of your child arriving to school on time each and every day. This will set up a lifelong habit and demonstrate how important school is. It is beneficial for each student to arrive at the same time as their classmates and begin the day on a positive note! We have prefect attendance awards for each trimester. Please note that tardies count against the perfect attendance.
We look forward to working with you and your family. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions/comments this school year. Let's make 2019-2020 an awesome school year!
