Happy New Year GPCP Families!
I hope that your holiday season has been blissful. I am so excited to welcome you all back and I am eagerly looking forward to the second half of the school year!  2019 is bringing some good changes to GPCP to propel the vision of our school. Please take a moment to read a Letter from the Board regarding these important updates and changes, including a tuition increase.


It is time to register for the 2019-2020 School Year!
In-House registration is for children currently enrolled in the preschool morning program and their siblings.  In-house registration runs from January 14 through January 25, 2019.
You can read more about our new online registration procedure in my January monthly newsletter.

 

If you missed my December Newsletter, please take the time and read all about our upcoming Child Talk Series, starting with Fear Free Parenting on January 30th.
 

Please join us for the WORKDAY this Saturday, January 12th at each respective campus.  We have a long list of tasks to complete to get our campuses ready for the Open Houses.

'Gala in the Grove' 2019 Annual Auction at Trees Atlanta!
Grant Park Cooperative Preschool signature social and fundraising event returns! Join us for an evening of live and silent auctions featuring a variety of donated items, services and experiences up for grabs — plus catering, bar service, music and more. Family auction packets will be distributed to GPCP parents at class meetings on Thursday, January 24th with additional details — including ticket info, donation guidelines, volunteer requirements and childcare.

*Alumni families and neighborhood boosters are also invited and encouraged to attend this adults-only gathering. Mark your calendars and stay tuned for more info!

Each GPCP family is required to donate two items that could realistically be auctioned for $200 total, or you may donate $250 in cash, in lieu of providing donated items. The auction committee will begin accepting donated silent auction items starting February 4th at both campuses.  If you did not volunteer at the Grant Park Tour of Homes in December, the auction is the last opportunity for families to fulfill the mandatory volunteer shift.

 

Reminders:

 

Monday, January 21st - School Closed - Martin Luther King Jr. Day
 

Friday, January 25th by 6pm - deadline for February Prepaid Extended Day forms (also deadline for In-House registration)

 

Monday, January 28th - Dine Out @ Agave in Cabbagetown. Call and make a reservation.Dinner, Dine in only. A big turnout gets an even bigger percentage for GPCP! Thanks @agaverestaurant for supporting our school and our community!


Thank you for your strong support and ongoing collaboration!
