Director's News/Updates

Dear Preschool Families and Weld Re-8 Community,

Happy March!

The Weld Re-8 Early Childhood team is thrilled to be getting settled at our new home, Little Trappers Preschool! We are grateful to the community for the gift of the beautiful learning environment in which to serve our district's youngest students. Thank you to our preschool families for your collaboration as we have come together as a district program and school.

We are entering week six of our journey at Little Trappers Preschool. Our students and staff are learning much together! Instructional learning experiences remain centered on fulfillment of our purpose to provide a high quality, developmentally appropriate curriculum for young learners. Our focus is to prepare children for Kindergarten in a safe, supportive, and stimulating environment.

We know that young children learn best through exploration, intentional learning opportunities, and hands on experiences both inside and outside of the classroom. We have been pleased to engage with your preschoolers in several fun learning activities over the course of the past month, including a visit to the Fort Lupton Police Department and City Hall, a presentation from the Fort Lupton Fire Department and a tour of fire trucks, and a visit from Tina Cerreto, Dental Hygienist, who taught us about dental health. Thank you to Ms. Heide Brown for her efforts to help connect our students to opportunities and to all of the community partners who have dedicated time and support to preschoolers in Weld Re-8 to make these learning events possible!

This month's calendar items include:

March 2nd: Read Across America Day and a celebration of Dr. Seuss's birthday

March 7th and 8th from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM: Parent Teacher Conferences for currently enrolled preschool students and Preschool Round Up for the 2018-2019 school year for children who will turn 3 or 4 on or before August 1st

March 14th and March 16th: Preschool Picture Day

March 26th through 30th: Spring Break

If you have any questions about the above activities, please contact us at Little Trappers Preschool at 303-857-3300.

Children are our community's promise and greatest gift. Each and every child is cherished and uniquely special. We are honored to serve them and you.
