Welcome to another exciting school year! This year we have many aspirations for our pre-kindergarten program. My staff and I are excited to share another year where we incorporate play with learning.
The start of the school year is a busy time and this year is no exception. In addition to the new staff, we as a whole will continue in life-long learning to equip ourselves with the tools needed to educate our students. We know there are many challenges with each new school year but our greatest encounter will be to always do our best to meet the needs of each and every student. We also are making a concerted effort this year to improve our attendance rates. Please use our website in conjunction with the district calendar to plan your absences.
This will be a great time to establish routines to ensure that students are prepared for the upcoming school year. Set goals for your child, establish an appropriate time for your child to go to bed and ensure that students are arriving to school on time. Learn as much as possible about Varnett and your child’s campus.
Technology is the foundation for any 21st century learning experience. Varnett will use expanded technology in the classrooms. The teacher will have access to tools, images and sound to engage all students in the classroom. In addition to the Apple computers available for students to use, preschoolers will be equipped with Kindles as well.
Please feel free to contact us with your questions or comments. Thank you for your continued commitment to your child’s education and unwavering dedication to the Varnett Public School.
See you at school!

Southwest Pre-kindergarten Director
