Procedure for Dropping Off After 9:30 am

August 31st, 2015

Our first month has seen many new faces at SGPS.  We are excited to have everyone back and welcome our new friends!!!

We would like to ask that you try to get your students here before 9:30 am each day.  The teachers will be starting their curriculum around that time and would be disappointed to have your child miss out on their learning experience.  If you do get here late, please follow the red signs and come in near the car pickup line door. 

Your children are a true blessing to us and we thank you for sharing them !!!

Early Drop Off and S.P.E.L.L. Reminders

August 31st, 2015

The Early Drop Off Program begins for children at 7:30 am.  A few staff members may be here earlier getting the preschool ready for our day, but they cannot accept children until 7:30 am.

To help with staffing in the afternoons, please remember to signup for this program on the clipboard outside the Nursery in the morning when you drop off.  If you should need the program, but did not signup, please try to let us know by 12:30 pm for adequate staffing.  Thanks!!!

Food City School Bucks

August 31st, 2015

Food City School Bucks is gearing up for the 2015/2016 school year.  We are currently awaiting our rewards check for the past school year.  The more people that signup with our school, the more money we will receive.  Remember to show your valucard and ask the cashier to link it to our number:  41158.  From that point, it’s simple…just SHOP, SCAN and SAVE to earn valuable points for our preschool!!!  Even though you have linked your card in the past, it has to be done annually.  Thanks for your support!!!!
