Scholastic Book Order
Due October 28

Each month you have an opportunity to purchase affordable books for your child through Scholastic. It is a great program and each book you order earns points for Community Preschool to purchase educational materials and books for the classrooms. You are welcome to fill out the paper order forms or order online. If you would prefer online, please go to create an account with the code GWCML. Please contact Ms. Tammy with any questions.

The book order for the month of October is due on Friday, October 28.

Moms Night

Mrs. Martinez and Ms. Tammy would love to invite Community Preschool moms to Moms Night on the second Friday of each month. We meet in Mrs. Martinez’s room from 6:00–10:00 p.m. Park on the north side of the building and enter through the exterior door at the end of the hallway.

In the past, moms have kept busy with anything from balancing their checkbooks, working on taxes, knitting, sewing, crocheting, cardmaking, scrapbooking, etc. Or just come to visit! If you have any questions please ask Mrs. Martinez or Ms. Tammy.
