Message from the Director

Welcome back!

For those of you I have not had the pleasure of meeting, my name is Mrs. Cheyne Brown and I am the proud director of our Early Childhood program at The Varnett Public School. I am looking forward to serving our Varnett community.

The Varnett Public School is an amazing place to work, learn and grow. Our incredibly dedicated staff works hard to provide a high-quality program that is rooted in rigorous standards based on curriculum and enriched with fine arts and extra-curricular activities. Our goal is to ensure academic and personal success for each student. Together, we encourage each child to aspire to his or her highest potential in a safe and engaging environment.

Not only are there several returning families, but there are many new families. As “newcomers” to our Early Childhood campus, you undoubtedly have questions as to how your child’s class operates. I would like to take this opportunity to explain some aspects of our program.

At the beginning of each month, a newsletter will be sent electronically. It is important to refer to the school’s webpage (prek@varnett.org), the school’s Remind app and the monthly newsletter for the most up-to-date information.

A weekly parent communication document will be sent home to keep you abreast of important information as well. As in the past, our campus offers ways for families and parents to participate in the program. The Varnett Public School is highly sensitive to parents’ busy schedules but also recognizes the importance of parent involvement. Throughout the year, there will be a variety of events. Some involve fundraising, networking with other parents, parenting tips, classroom participation and special events as well as parent/teacher conferencing. In addition to these opportunities, families are also asked to participate in an annual family survey. The Varnett Public School would not be the school it is without the dedication of the parents and community. We value every parent (guardian) and look forward to working with you.

We are extremely proud of our Early Childhood program. As we eagerly accommodate this specific age group of students, we must not misconstrue our program with requirements of various “daycare” facilities. For our students to participate in this program, students and parents must adhere to all state mandates, school policies and procedures that relate to attendance, tardiness, homework, assignments, uniform requirements, discipline and school disruptions. Ensuring the success of each child is a collaborative effort on behalf of the parent and the entire school community.

 At the beginning of the school year, our main goals are to:

1.     Establish a sense of security in the children through the setting of routines.

2.     Foster an easy separation from parent(s).

3.     Encourage the adjustment to new classmates and teachers.

The Varnett Public School would not be the school it is without the dedication of the parents and community. We value each family and look forward to working with you. Thank you for choosing The Varnett Early Childhood Center.

We are committed to fulfilling our mission of high-quality care for young children in a safe and nurturing environment while contributing to the development and well being of individuals and families. We look forward to sharing a wonderful year with all of you!

We embark on a new school year with joy and enthusiasm, and we thank each of you for your support of our program. If you have any questions or concerns that have not been addressed here, please feel free to contact the Early Childhood campus at 713-726-7690

Best Regards,

Cheyne R. Brown

Districtwide Director of Early Childhood Education
