Sum Fun Program
June 3-June 21
Fun In the Arts
We are now registering children for next year that are not presently attending WLPS. Please let your friends know that you think might be interested in having their children attend WLPS! We appreciate you recommending us! Not meaning to be, but we are a well kept secret. Please spread the word.
We have notecards with artwork from our children. The set of six notecards is $5. All proceeds benefit WLPS! You can find a sample package of them on our front counter.
Save the Date:
WLPS "40th Anniversary" Celebration
Saturday, October 26th 10am-12pm
More details to follow!
Miss Oyin, a JU student and WLPS student worker performed a dance from her native country, Nigeria, for our Three and Four Year olds to enjoy. The children were spell bound by her beautiful dancing. She taught the children a few steps of the dance after she finished and they did very well! There are a few pictures of Miss Oyin with her beautiful costume hanging on the Four's Bulletin board. Miss Oyin's grandmother made the dress for her.
Dr. Kay was featured in the Florida Times Union Newspaper recently. Charlie Patton, that writes a column-"One of Us" visited WLPS to interview Dr. Kay. The article is posted on one of the parent bulletin boards near the front door for you to see.
As usual, we are so very proud of our "Founding" Director, Dr. Kay and so grateful that she started WLPS and continues to help us to do what is developmentally appropriate for young children.
Please hold your child's hand to and from the parking lot. The JU students are young adult drivers that are not always cautious when passing our building and do not all look out for young children. Please, please help us to keep your child safe!
Cell phones can interrupt communication between parents, children, and teachers. Please refrain from using cell phones inside WLPS. Thank you
Please only open the front door for parents personally known to you as WLPS family members. If you are not sure, please wait for a WLPS faculty member to open the door. Please do not allow your child to ever open the front door. For safety reasons, we do not want them to get used to opening doors. We teach them that only teachers, moms, dads, grandparents and other adults open doors at WLPS. We appreciate your help with this!
We know you do not send your children to school when they are sick. Please call us to let us know when your child is absent. We worry about them when they are not here. 256-7147
