Dear Parents,

Welcome to the Nierman Preschool 2013-14 school year! We are very excited about the upcoming year with new classes in Spanish Immersion and new programs for each age level. May it be a year filled with growth, creativity, good health, and friendships for all of us!

Please review the forms and flyers carefully -- there are many choices and opportunities for you and your children, as well as policies with which to become familiar. By printing out only the forms you need to submit, this will also help us to be as "green" as possible.

New students received an initial confirmation with forms required by the State of California as well as additional Nierman Preschool forms. If you have not already done so, please complete these papers immediately and return them to the School Office. For those of you who have not returned the papers or have misplaced the originals (e.g. ID and Emergency Information, Consent for Medical Treatment, Personal Rights, Physician's Form, etc.), please refer to Packet 2.

All students should review Packet 1, and complete the Student Information Sheet (SIS) as this is our first source for emergency information. Save this form on your computer - any time you have a change, please submit an updated form to the school office.

The Confidential History for New and Returning Students provides valuable information to teachers. These forms are part of Packet 1.

Packets 3, 4, and 5 have information as well as write-able PDFs to sign up for optional food, extended day, and enrichment programs.

Packet 6 contains important information for parents, including our calendar and special dates.

We welcome any questions to help facilitate your return of these forms. If your child has special needs or you would like an opportunity to speak privately with the Director or Teacher, please call me at 858.362.1171 to set up an appointment.

I look forward to greeting you at our Registration Day on Tuesday, July 9th, when we will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to collect all your completed paperwork. Should you not be available to attend, please contact the school office to make a special appointment.

Looking forward to a wonderful year,

Alma Hadash Geiger
Director, Early Childhood Education
