As an ongoing communication between school and home each month is the,
"PALMETTO BAY PRESCHOOL NEWSLETTER"
It describes the activities of that month for your child's classroom,
along with interesting useful information made available for you.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free
to make a conference appointment with your child's teacher.
During the year your child's class may be participating in an educational trip. Everything is new and exciting for them,
and a simple outing can provide the basis for amazing hands-on learning opportunities.
Field trips are not only lots of fun but they can also be very valuable learning experiences for young children.
They can help build background knowledge and vocabulary that are important for success in school and life.
It is the policy of Palmetto Bay Preschool to require parental permission before
allowing a child to travel with members of his/her class. If you would like your child to participate,
you must read and sign the consent form in the office prior to the field trip. Also if you would like
to come as a parent chaperone, please inquire at the office.

We will be having our annual Food Drive

"Sometimes we take for granted how truly blessed we are,
a non-for-profit organization, empowers other South Florida non-for-profit
organizations to feed needy people and improve their lives. We do this by providing food and other
grocery products; and by educating and engaging our community to fight hunger and poverty.
Please support with non-perishable (non frozen and no glass jars) food goods.
Attitude of gratitude, Be thankful."
