Director's Update

Dear HNPS Families,
 
We have come to the end of our summer camps at our preschool.  It is with much sadness that we say good-by to our graduating Blue Fish students that are moving on to Kindergarten in the fall.   Please know Blue Fish families that we would love to see you all at our fall Fright Fest and our spring Family Fun Day.  You will always be a part of our Holy Name Preschool Community!
 
We will also miss Ms. Chrys as she leaves our preschool on Wednesday to pursue her new position.  We wish her much success!
 
Lastly, congratulations to Ms. Kathryn and her husband Sean as they became parents to their beautiful daughter, Brielle on July 15th!  Ms. Kathryn and her daughter are doing well and resting at home.   The preschool students were very excited to hear the news and we all can't wait to see Ms. Kathryn and Brielle soon!
 
We hope to see some of you at our summer play-date on Sunday, July 30th at the Sunset Rec. Center from 2-4 pm!  Thank you to Karen Brennan (Molly-BF & Rian-RF) and Jessica Wilcox (Jackson-RF) for organizing it.  
 
Have a wonderful and safe summer!   See you back on August 21st!
 
Blessings,
Alice & the Staff

Dear HNPS Families,
 
Thank you to parents Lauren Chadwick (Malcolm's mom-BF) and Evelyn Lent (Penelope RF & BF Jalynn's mom ) for organizing the wonderful summer play-date last Saturday at the Ortega Playground.  It was great to see so many of our current and incoming families there.  Our next two summer play-dates will be on Sunday, July 30th and Saturday, August 19th.  More details about these play-dates will be provided soon.  
 
Please stop by and say "Good-bye" to Mr. Chris this week.  Friday, July 21st will be his last day at our preschool.  Mr. Chris has been with our preschool for 4 years and we have enjoyed seeing him grow as a preschool teacher over the years.  Mr. Chris will be going back to school to pursue a career in sports education.
 
We are also sad to say "Good-bye" to Ms. Chrys.  Her last day will be next Wednesday, July 27th.  Ms. Chrys has been with our preschool from our very first day on January 4, 2012.  She was instrumental in our growth as we grew from a one-room classroom to two full classrooms.  Ms. Chrys has been helpful in training new teachers along the way.  She has graduated many Blue Fish students and she will be sorely missed by our families and our staff.  Ms. Chrys will be working as a T-K teacher in her new position.  
 
Believe it or not, we are approaching our last two weeks of preschool for the summer.  Friday, July 28th will be our last day.  We will resume for the fall school-year on August 21st..  We are looking forward to beginning the new school-year with our current staff.  The Red Fish teachers will be Ms. Pilar, Ms. Kathryn, Ms. Ally, Ms. Marilu, Ms. Jen, Ms. Ann and Ms. Chelsea.  The Blue Fish teachers will be Ms. Liz, Ms. Melinda, Ms. Jennie and Ms. Sandra.  As always, we appreciate the tremendous support from the Parent Committee and our families.  
 
Have a great week!  
 
Blessings,
Alice & the Staff
 
 
 
Dear HNPS Families,
 
We hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful weekend!  Thank you parents for spoiling us last week with your abundance of cards, treats and beautiful flowers for Teacher's  Appreciation Week.   The staff and I felt overwhelmed with gratitude knowing we have such a wonderful community here!  You are all so special to us!  Thank you, thank you!!!
 
Here are some clarifications about our summer at HNPS.  The preschool is in operation all during the summer through July 28th.  The RF is having their Spring Performance on Wednesday, June 7th at 11:15 am.  Sign-Ups for snacks will be out shortly.  The BF is having their Graduation on June 9th at 3:00 pm.  The preschool will close on Friday, June 9th at 2:30 pm.  (Please let Ms. Alice know if this will be a hardship.)  BF parents, please respond to the Evite with the number of guests so we can plan for the reception.  The preschool will begin our Summer Camps from June 12th-July 28th.  The themes for each week are:
  •  Camping Week-June 12th-16th
  •  Crafts/Cooking-June 19th-23rd

The RF and BF curricula will be based on the summer themes.  There will be Free Dress every Thursday and Friday.  In addition, the students will take walking trips to the Ortega playground (weather permitting) on one of those days.  Please inform the staff if you are NOT planning to participate in our summer camps.  Please email Ms. Alice if you have additional questions.   
 
The preschool will take a Summer Break from July 31st - August 18th.  We will resume our new school year on August 21st.  The August tuition will be prorated.  
 
For BF parents, please know Ms. Chrys is on a personal leave due to the death of her father in the Philippines.  Ms. Chrys will return on May 22nd.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family.  In the meantime, the BF staff will be joined by Ms. Ann, Mr. Chris and Ms. Sandra to help with staffing.
