The President's Corner
Happy New Year everyone! I hope that you’ve all had a smooth and easy start to your school year! It always seems to take a few weeks until all of the children, parents, and staff members are in the routine of school again (or for the first time for some of them!). By now hopefully everyone is calm and enjoying each day. I want to thank everyone who came to the first annual conference at Jekyll Island! We had a great time and I hope that all of you who attended enjoyed being at the beach and learning a lot of new information to take home and put into practice from our wonderful keynote speaker, Shawn Brown, and the workshop presenters. We’ll let you know when we’ve set the date for next year!
Safety and security seem to be on our minds a lot now. The events in the news have made us more aware of our responsibility to keep our children and staff members safe while they are in school. Some of you have already had security in place to control the access to your preschool and others are getting it in place so no one can just walk into the school. Besides that we are having lock down drills along with our other emergency drills so everyone knows what to do in case there is a situation.
