As I prepare this March Newsletter, I realize that I am very happy to see the end of this snowy, cold month of February.
However Mother Nature may still have a few tricks up her sleeve. We will continue to follow the West Chester Area School District for cancellations and if WCASD has a 2 (or 3) hour delay then Calvary will have a delayed start and shortened sessions. The morning classes will run from 10:30 - 12:30 and the afternoon sessions from 1:00 - 3:00. On delayed start days, LUNCH BUNCH is cancelled.
In the past we have not made up snow days at the preschool. However because of the severity of this winter, the Calvary Board has decided to extend the school year by a week in May. We were originally scheduled to end the school year at Memorial Day. However now we will have a full week of regular classes during the week of May 19 – 23. Then we will return to the Calvary after Memorial Day for the last class session and the end of the year picnics from Tuesday, May 27 – Friday, May 30th.
We apologize for the inconvenience that these snow cancelations and delays are causing families. It has been an extremely challenging winter for all.

Note from the Board:
Dear Parents and Caregivers,
The Calvary Lutheran Preschool Board is conducting a survey to assess how well the preschool is meeting your needs and the needs of your children. Many of you may have already received an email containing a link to the survey. If you did not receive this email, you may access the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/B23NB2J. The survey is to be completed by persons with children currently enrolled at Calvary. It will remain open until March 23rd.
Survey responses are anonymous; however, if you wish to discuss any of your responses with a board member, please include your contact information in one of the comment boxes and someone will contact you at the conclusion of the survey.
Thank you in advance for your participation. Your responses will help us to meet our continued goal of providing a preschool program that serves the community and allows children to learn, explore, and grow.
Registration For 2014-2015:
We are still accepting registration for the 2014 -2015 school year. At this time, several classes are full but we still have openings for new and returning students. Please spread the word to your friends!
If you have signed up your child, and would still like to add a 4’s Enrichment Class or a 2’s or 3’s Optional Friday Class, please give the director a call. Space is limited!
