We’re all ready for Mother Nature to stop teasing us with glimpses of spring and “bring it on”!  Looking ahead –


This year spring break begins Monday, April 18 and preschool resumes Wednesday, April 27.  Please note the spring break is before Easter and continues for two days afterwards.  Easter is so late this year that the Columbus Public Schools decided to break with tradition and have spring break the week before Easter; however, the parochial schools are maintaining their tradition of spring break the week after Easter.  To try to accommodate both calendars, Overbrook Preschool Policy Council made the decision to span both vacation times as best they could.  Please mark your calendars.

ART SHOW/OPEN HOUSE:  Sunday, May 15, 2011 from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM. 

Everyone is welcome to join us for our Art Show/Open House.  Of course, every child will have their art on display.  DEBBIE CLEMENTS will provide music and fun for everyone and there will be treats and fun for the whole family.  The SILENT AUCTION is always a crowd pleaser and classroom basket chairs are already gathering goodies for their room’s basket.  If you do not know who your basket chairperson is, please check with your child’s teacher.  If you have other questions, please check with the people in the preschool office, they can  you to the right person.

We will also be dedicating the Sensory Garden on that day.  We also hope to have our families be sure to recognize Dr. Joyce Matthews who has led Overbrook Preschool for 33 years.  There will be further information coming home about saying goodbye later on.
