As we celebrate the 63rd year of this ministry, we look forward to a happy association with you and your child. It is our goal to accept your child as he or she comes to us, to help develop each child's sense of worth about his or her own being, and to provide learning experiences that will cause each child to grow spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially.

New Parent Orientation is scheduled for Tuesday, August 27, at 6:30 p.m. Our new parents are invited to attend our New Parent Orientation in Player Hall. During this orientation session, we will offer information regarding the operation of our program and will answer any questions you may have.

At 7:15 p.m. our Parents' Open House will begin in children's classrooms with an introduction and orientation by the teacher about the class' schedule and activities. Parent Handbooks will be available in the classrooms for each family.

Your child's teacher will contact you in regards to Student Orientation/Visits which will be held on the morning of Wednesday, August 28. The teacher will notify you of your child's time for the classroom visitation. To achieve a happy and easy transition for your child, it is our experience that it is helpful to have shorter sessions the first two days of school. The following schedule has been arranged with this concern in mind.

Thursday, August 29
9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.: Part-time/Full-Time; T/TH and M-F

Friday, August 30
9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.: Part-time; MWF

Tuesday, September 3
Early Morning Care and Extended Care begin for Part-time, 7:45 am- 4:00 pm
Early Morning Care and Extended Car begin for Full-time, 7:30 am- 5:30 pm

We sincerely hope you will plan to join us at Open House. In the meantime, if you have questions or concerns, please call 256-1498. The doors of Shandon are always open, and we welcome your visits and calls. Thank you for the opportunity to share in your child's preschool and kindergarten experience. We are looking forward to sharing a wonderful year with your family!
