On Tuesday October 5 and Thursday Oct. 7 we will be offering school pictures for the children in our program. One of our parents, Shannon Jockel, is a professional photographer and will be taking pictures for us this year. We will be taking both individual pictures and class pictures.

Shannon will be taking photos of all children on Picture Day. If you would NOT like your child to participate, please let Ms. Hillary know.  Shannon will give parents access to an individual online gallery, and you can order prints directly from her. No need to pre-order or pre-pay! 

Shannon has also offered to take sibling pictures as well, so if you have a younger child and would like their picture taken, please sign up in your child's classroom so we can plan accordingly.
St. James Preschool celebrates Fall and Halloween with a children's parade! Start time is 9:45 am. Parents are encouraged to stay and be our audience! If weather permits, we will have our parades on our playground walking on the bicycle path, so please meet us there. If the weather is bad, we will parade in Avery Hall. Please do not forget to bring a change of clothes for your child! They will not be staying in their costumes for the entire day. We will need your help changing from costumes to play clothes, so each child must have a designated adult to help them change.

WTh Busy Bees, WThF Sharks--Come to preschool in your costumes on Thursday, Oct. 28. 

5 day students are welcome to participate both days.

We are offering a FREE Conscious Discipline parenting class! We're still working out some of the details, but we will be sending more information soon. The class will meet for 4 sessions in person at St. James Preschool on Monday evenings from 6:00-8:00pm starting later in the month of October. The class will be facilitated by Ms. Kim and Ms. Hillary.
Parents can sign up for the class as a couple or as an individual. Childcare will be available by reservation. Participants must be able to attend all four sessions in order to get the most benefit from the class.

We'll be sending out the dates and an opportunity to sign up very soon!
Reminder: Please dress your child for the weather! 
We know that Colorado weather can be unpredictable, and as we enter the month of October we know that snow is a very real possibility. We will go outside every day as long as the temperature is above 20 degrees (including wind chill). 

Here is a reminder about weather related closures from our Parent Handbook, which can be found on page 16: "At the discretion of St. James Preschool Administration, we will announce snow days based on the local weather conditions for the safety of children, families and staff. We will use the area public school snow closures as a guideline for making decisions about snow closure days. These closures will be announced by email and text. Families may also refer to the school website and Facebook page for updates."
