All the information for school year 2024-25 is in the handbook you received at our orientation. Please read all information carefully. If you need a new copy email ragnhild@westhillchurch.ca and I will send it home in your childs backpack.

 

FALL ORIENTATION

This years orientation will be on September 10th (TTh-Tuesday/Thursday classes) and September 11th (MWF-Monday/Wednesday/Friday classes) – 10.00 – 11.00 AM

This is a short introduction in the church Fellowship hall at 10 AM. Children will get to go with their teacher for a brief moment in their classrooms during the parent orientation. There will also be a guided tour for parents to see the relevant spaces the children will be spending their time.

 

FIRST DAY OF CLASS FOR 2024-2025

Classes will begin on September 12th (TTh) /  September 13th (MWF) – 9.15-11.15 AM

The children are required to bring their indoor shoes to school and home every school day. We do recommend the children also keep and extra change of clothes in a backpack at their hook. They will have a hook in the hallway with their name on it, but this is a shared hook with children coming at different times.

 

SCHOLASTIC BOOK CLUB

Happy Hearts Preschool participates in the Scholastic Book Clubs. This is a wonderful opportunity to start or expand your home library. This is also a great introduction for children to the joys of reading. Scholastic offers books and magazines for the whole family. It offers everything you need to encourage the love of reading and learning. Scholastic sales also benefit our classrooms, as the preschool receives credit or bonus points that can be used towards purchasing classroom resources, books and materials. Each month or so, you will receive a Scholastics magazine. You can order from their website using our class code: RC164497
