Dear Parents, As the school year ends, I would like to thank all
of you who played an important role in making this school year a
meaningful one for the children. The combined efforts of our Parent
Volunteer Corps, St. Andrew’s Nursery School Board, our Office
Staff, and our very dedicated Teaching Staff contributed to a
wonderful school year, full of activities in which our children
gained important life skills for their future. Our play-based
program is a key component for children to acquire a love of
learning while building a solid foundation for their future
success. You received the NAEYC Family Survey. Please take a few
moments to complete and return it to the school office. Your
feedback is a very important component of our review and planning
process, and it will be given careful and thoughtful consideration.
It is also a requirement for our NAEYC accreditation. Please check
the school calendar at the end of this newsletter to be informed of
all the activities scheduled for this month. On behalf of the St.
Andrew’s Nursery School Board and Staff, I wish you and your family
a restful and safe summer. Enjoy this special time while making
beautiful memories with your children! Happy Mother’s Day to all
the mom’s in our program! Sincerely,
Astrid M. Montes, Director

Safety Concerns... Sneakers or regular rubber-soled tie shoes
are the safest for children to wear when playing, both in the
and on the playground. Please, no flip-flops or “Crocks.” We
would appreciate your understanding and cooperation. Please turn
your cell phone ON immediately after you drop your child off at
school. There may come a time when
we need to contact you when you are not home. Thank you ! Please
supervise your children outside before and after class, in the
parking lot and also in the grass. With the windows sometimes open
there is a serious threat of injury to children running near them.
Please do not leave your child alone in a car, even for a few
minutes. If you cannot take your baby or toddler
out of the car in order to come in at dismissal time, then
perhaps another parent would be kind enough to bring your
preschooler out to you. Just let us know in the office is that is
the case. Let’s do all we can to keep EVERY child safe.
