As an ongoing communication between school and home, each month
"The PBP Preschool Newsletter
for Palmetto Bay Preschool Families"
describe the activities of that month for your child's classroom,
along with interesting useful information available to 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.
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.

makes certain that picture day goes smoothly and that every student looks their best. Pictures will be available for
viewing with no commitment to purchase, two weeks from the photo shoot.
Each class will have their own Halloween Party.
We are asking for your kind cooperation in helping us with any contributions such as chips, cookies, soft candies and fruit.
A sign-up list will be by your child's classroom door. Thank You!
We will be having our annual Food Drive
Daily Food Bank, 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.
