Welcome to Pre-K 4

This will be an exciting year full of growth, learning and having fun. We look forward to enjoying the many memorable experiences together with you and your child here at St. Stephen School.  

Please remember that Pre-K 3 and 4 are nut free classrooms, so please no peanuts for snack or lunch. Also, no candies as snack or lunch items. If you are taking Enrichment Program, please pack extra snack as well as lunch. Also pack another snack for aftercare (after 3 PM).

Pre-K 4 AM and Morning Extended Care: Morning Drop-off at the main building is going very well. Thank you so much for your patience and cooperation while in the car line.  The students are quickly becoming familiar with morning drop off and routines. They are also becoming familiar with the routine and procedure for restroom use in the main building. As a result, we are back in the classroom by 8:20.

For safety concern, if you see us walking back and you are still in the car line, please drop off at the preschool building. (We do not want the children running to catch up to the line while cars are moving!)

 To help with traffic, when dropping off, please do not wait until you are in front of the main doors. You may drop off your child as soon as you enter the drop-off zone, which is marked off by cones. The safeties are also there to help.

Since we walk back to the classroom after morning assembly, if we have a downpour, please make sure your child has appropriate rain gear (raincoat and boots — please bring regular shoes to change into once we are in the classroom).
