Dear Evergreen Academy Preschool Families,
I want to give a warm Thank You to our families that have re-enrolled for the coming school year. Open Enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year will begin March 2nd. At this time, we will be accepting registrations from families who are new to our school community.
Spring will be arriving soon! Our classrooms will begin to study the change of the season and see what Spring has to offer. The children will begin exploring ecology, gardening, and plant life, and will have the opportunity to spend more time outside enjoying nature. We will also have a brand new selection of After School Enrichment classes for you to choose! Spring Enrichment classes will begin March 30th.
Although it is hard to believe, Summer is right around the corner, and it is time to start making Summer Camp plans. We have a wonderful collection of weekly Summer Camps planned for our students this year. Summer Camp Brochures will be coming later this Spring, and will be sent home via Links 2 Home and in Friday Folders. If you have any questions about our Summer Camp or Enrichment programs, please contact our Enrichment and Camp Director, Jancyn MacLeod at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your continued support of our school.
Kristina Sleister | Principal

5 Books to Read with Your Preschooler During National Reading Month
For National Reading Month,we are celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday in March for a fun-filled month of literacy-based activities.
Below are five age-appropriate books to continue the celebration with your child at home.
Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell (ages 0-1)
This silly lift-the-flap book will be one of your child’s favorites. He’ll love looking at the brightly colored illustrations of zoo animals, including a lion, a monkey, and an elephant. It’s a short and simple story that will keep your little one’s attention time and time again.
Belly Button Book by Sandra Boynton (ages 1-2)
What could be cuter than hippos who love showing off their belly buttons?! Read this rhyming board book with your toddler and encourage him to help flip the pages and point to his own belly button.
The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown (ages 2-3)
First published in 1942, this classic, heartwarming story of a mother’s conditional love has been a favorite among generations of families. The little bunny loves playing hide and seek with his mother, who finds him every time. It’s a great book to read as we’re entering the spring season.
Duck in the Truck by Jez Alborough (ages 3-4)
This fun story is filled with rhymes about a duck whose truck is stuck in the muck. With the power of teamwork from a sheep in a Jeep and a goat in a boat, he’s able to get unstuck.
If You Give a Moose a Muffin by Laura Numeroff (ages 4+)
Your child will enjoy this funny story about what might happen if you give a hungry moose a muffin. The book will bring lots of laughs as it teaches valuable lessons including consequences and cause and effect.
