Dear Parents

According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac the coldest periods are over
and the good news is that April and May will be drier and much warmer than normal- more time outside! Now to get on with it, what is happening this week and next?

PRE-K REGISTRATION
The Department of Education is extending the public school pre-k application deadline to Wednesday, April 23, 2014 in order to accommodate expected program expansion. The deadline extension gives families more time to learn about all of their options before submitting an application.
