  • Weekly Wrap Up! First Week of Advent

    Posted by Dawn Lorenz on 12/4/2020

    Dear OLV Preschool Family,

    This week we celebrate the hope that Advent brings into our lives. I am grateful for each day we get to be in person at our preschool. Thank you for practicing diligence and following our health and safety guidelines to help us to do that as long as possible. 
    We are also celebrating today because after an extensive Internal Assessment Process with the Keystone STARS program during the last several months, we have received a STAR 4 designation. This rating is the highest that can be received within the Keystone STARS program. It is an indicator that our school is committed to continuous quality improvement through ongoing professional development in assessment, curriculum, diversity, and language development. The review process also ensures that our school provides a safe, positive, and enriching academic environment for children to grow and learn. 
    Thank you for being a part of the OLV Preschool Family. Without you none of this would be possible. 
    8 days to go! Thank you so much to all who have already registered for Raise Craze. To date we have raised $3,065 toward classroom and security updates for our school by doing acts of kindness in our homes, school, and community! We have 57% of our students registered for Raise Craze. There is still time for #RaisingKindness2020. Attached is the flyer that explains how to get started and help us on our kindness challenge. 
    Adopted Families
    Interested in supporting our adopted families for Christmas? Be on the lookout for a Sign Up Genius to come early next week. We will be signing up to bring in wrapped gifts for our families with Saint Vincent DePaul. Gifts will be picked up on December 18th. 
    Brrrr. . . .
    It's certainly getting chilly! We will continue to go outside as long as the weather permits and it is a real feel of 25 or above. Please label any jackets or other items coming into the school so they are not lost or sent home with the wrong child. 
    Thank you to all who have dropped off tuition payments for December. If you have not already done so, please remember to drop off a check on Monday morning.
