    WPS Students to Return to School in Hybrid Learning Model 

Close alert

January 10, 2020


Dear Pre-K Families,

Happy New Year! 2020 is here and we are beginning our new year with many exciting things. Our new curriculum, Creative Curriculum, is in full swing with completing our Ball Study and currently we are in our Tree Study. As we grow and learn this year with our new curriculum, we invite parents to consult with teachers on how they can work with their child at home.

I am excited to report that I have returned to Bucks Hill Pre-K after assisting in the Special Education Department as Interim Director. We now have a new Director, Katharine Gabrielson, who will be visiting our building in the new year. I am very happy to be back and working with our Pre-K Panda Staff and families again.

Our Pre-K program is NAEYC accredited (National Association for the Education of Young Children), and we completed our re-accreditation evaluation on January 8th and 9th of this week. NAEYC ensures we are following best practices and guidelines for young children and we are confident we will continue in good standing.

Communication is vital as part of your child’s learning and development. Please communicate with us and provide documentation when your child is absent. Utilize the communication logs, apps, and phone calls with teachers as set forth at the beginning of the year. If you would like to meet with me, please contact the school and I will make myself available. Follow us on twitter for updates, resources, and overall information for the district, school, and community!

Here are a few exciting things going on in January 2020:     

January 20th Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.


January 24th Color Day


January 31st

Panda Spirit Day, Wear your favorite Sports Team apparel.
