The Chalkboard

Every week we keep you up to date on what’s happening in the classroom here at Westend Community Playschool(WECP). From the weekly focus boards to field trips and snack days! We do show it all. This blog runs in conjunction with the seesaw app we use to give parents daily updates of what’s happening in the classroom.

Mabel’s Labels – Fundraising Opportunity

Things get lost, many times children will have the same or similar items to other children and things will get swapped, or mysterious items appear and no one knows to whom they belong! Enter, Mabel’s labels. Mabel’s Labels is a customizable label service I’m sure many of you have at least heard of, if not are already using for your kids. Being laundry, dishwasher and microwave safe (Pst… They’re also 100$ guaranteed!), these labels are a lifesaver, and now with every purchase you can help WECP flourish!

Have a Wonderful Summer!

We hope everyone had a great time at Fun Day last week. The weather was warm and the ice cream was cold. The children loved the bouncy obstacle course/house and the animals from Thistle Hill got so much love and pets. We loved chatting with all our families even though it is sad to say good-bye to our 4 year old class as they head off to kindergarten in the fall. We know all our little friends are going to have so much fun at their new schools next year and we wish them and their families the best in their education journeys. For those returning students we start classes the week of September 10, 2019 and staggered start dates will be emailed out in August. Have a wonderful summer with your friends and families.

One Week Left!!!

This week is the final week of classes at Westend Community Play School. The students have played hard all year and have made many friends. Throughout the year the teachers kept some of the most special crafts and put them into scrapbooks that each child will receive next week. These are beautiful keepsakes with photos and hand/footprints for families to look at for years to come.

On the last day of classes the play school will be hosting it’s yearly Fun Day, keep your fingers crossed for warm weather. We will spending the morning celebrating all the children’s accomplishments and saying good-bye. Some fun vendors we have coming are the Adventure Bus, Thistle Hills Petting Zoo, Pop Up inflatables, and Fat Franks. We would also like to thank the Rio Terrace Church for partnering with us to provide each child with an ice cream from their Ice Cream Shack program.
