Dear HGECC Families:
June and July just flew by and the last weeks of summer are upon us. The first day of school is only a couple weeks away. I hope you had a wonderful summer and were able to relax and enjoy a less hectic schedule.
All of the staff and faculty are looking forward to welcoming all our new and returning students. Whether you child is starting preschool for the first time or returning after summer break, starting a new school year can be a big adjustment. One of the most difficult things for your young child is saying good-bye to you.
One way you can help your child through this transition is to practice saying good-bye and develop a routine such as a hug or a kiss or simply saying “I love you, have a great day, and I’ll see you when school is out.” Sometimes it is helpful to give them something small they can keep in their pocket such as a heart, a picture, or a love note. Ask them to keep it for you until you see them again later that day.
The success of our students is enhanced by parent involvement. We have several opportunities throughout the year for you to visit our school and be involved. If you would like to volunteer in your child’s classroom, be sure to let the teacher know. I hope that you will be an active member of our school wide parent committee. Watch for upcoming meeting dates and times.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call me, your child’s teacher or the school office at any time.
I’ve listed a few dates below you will want to place on your calendar. We’re looking forward to a fantastic 2014-2015 school year!
