Monday, January 8

We're back and having fun! Look for next year's registration information and tuition envelopes in backpacks this week. (Tuition will be due by Friday 1/12.)

Welcome 2018!




Below is a copy of the email sent out to families on January 2.

Happy New Year!

We hope that all of you have enjoyed your Christmas holidays and the start of the new year. We will start back to school tomorrow--weather-permitting! Just a reminder that our school closure for bad weather is determined by SCCPS:
  • If SCCPS is closed or 2 hours late, WIPP is closed.
  • If SCCPs is 1 hour late, we will begin carpool at 9:50 and class at 10:05.
If an announcement is made regarding school closings, we'll post it on the blog and our FB page as soon as we hear it!

Just to repeat...
As you know we had a lot of illnesses hit the preschool in December! Please make sure that we have a contact number where we can always reach someone to come and get your child if he/she isn't feeling well. We did have one confirmed case of mononucleosis at WIPP and I know there were several other cases at local schools. (See below for a little bit of information from the internet.) Symptoms may mimic strep, so if your child hasn't been feeling well, has a sore throat but tests negative for strep, you might want to mention this to your pediatrician.

(From www.healthychildren.org ) Many infants and young children have no symptoms or only very mild ones. When there are signs and symptoms of mononucleosis, they usually include the following:
Sore throat, including white patches in the back of the throat
Swollen lymph glands in the back of the neck, groin, and armpit

Once we start back to school, we'll begin registration for next year--and then spring will be upon us before we know it! Below are some of the dates that you'll want to add to your calendar for the rest of the school year!
  • Monday, January 15 MLK Holiday
  • Friday, January 19 Pajama Day
  • Monday 2/19/Tuesday 2-20 Presidents’ Day Holidays
  • Week of February 21 ` Donuts with Dads Week

Noon Year’s Day Party”
January 1st, 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM
WIPC-Fellowship Hall

The Wilmington Island Presbyterian Church’s Youth Group is putting on a Noon Year’s Day party for the children of our church and our community.  From 10:30-Noon on January 1st you are invited to come play games, take pictures, and join in on a Noon Year’s Day balloon drop and sparkling cider toast.  Cost is $5 per child.  Money will be used to support the youth’s participation in Summer Camps and Mission Trips.

Merry Christmas from WIPP!

Thank you for helping to make our Christmas program and Cookie Share such a success. We had some leftover cookies which we plated and delivered to People Helping People of Savannah for their lunch yesterday in Forsyth Park. (Each Sunday in Forsyth Park they offer lunch and blessings to those in need.)

When we return to school in January (Classes resume Wednesday, January 3rd.) we'll begin registration for next year. We send home forms with our current students first and then open registration to new families. Some of our classes fill up quickly so make sure you return your form/registration fee quickly.

We know that some of our 3s will be putting their names in the public schools' PK lottery. Because that isn't usually held until late March/early April, we ask that you send in just the registration form if WIPP is your “back-up plan” then pay the registration fee once you know your child's status for the public schools.

For any additional information over break, please check the blog. If you haven't sent me your Christmas cookie recipes yet, email them to wipp450@gmail.com. I'll try and get those up on the blog before Christmas in case you're looking for a cooking project to do with the little ones while they're home!

Christmas Program Practice

Here are some of the photos from our practices over the last couple of weeks.  We can 't wait for Friday!  (See the post below this one for details.)
