We hope that you’ve had a happy and healthy summer. As we approach the start of the 2012-2013
school year at Wilmington Island Presbyterian Preschool, we’ve begun getting the
building ready by cleaning, painting, moving furniture—and planning! We look forward to seeing parents at our
evening Open House on Wednesday, August 29, and to meeting our students on
Thursday, August 30. School officially
begins on Tuesday, September 4.
WIPP will continue its active accreditation in the Georgia

shop at Publix, just ask the cashier to
scan your school card and we receive a percentage of whatever you spend. There is no cost to you—and if you have more

Beginning Monday, September 10, we will offer our Early
Bird program each weekday morning starting at 8:15 for $2.00 per day. We will also offer our Lunch Bunch
program on various days after school from 12:00-1:00 at a cost of $5.00 per

We're looking forward to seeing you soon and sharing this
year with you. Please feel free to
contact me with any questions or concerns.
