  • Dear Families,

    Happy Spring!

    It seems we are actually having spring weather for a change this year and many beautiful blossoms are starting to grace us with their presence. It is great to see so many people getting outside to enjoy nature during this crazy time in our lives. There is always a bright side.

    We all miss seeing our students and we miss seeing each other as well. We are trying hard to keep in touch with our students and you as their parents and guardians.  The preschool staff is showing their creativity and dedication to their students in many different ways during this time. Please know that we are all here to support you, so if there is something you need please reach out to us.  We as a staff have virtual meetings regularly and share ideas and check in with each other. If you have any ideas of ways that we can enhance what we are sending out to you for your children, please let us know.

    We will continue to post resources on the FPS office for Teaching and Learning webpage. We are limited to posting resources that do not have pictures, tables, calendars etc….so we send those out in a variety of other ways at this time. Please stay on the lookout.

    The Coalition for Children does a daily virtual playgroup at 10:00 M-F. They have been wonderful sessions. You can access this at thecoalitionforchildren.org/virtualplayandlearn.

    WGBH continues to provide quality programming for children and has been adding more and more daily to try to enhance children’s learning as they are home.  I have listed some other resources here that you may find helpful. The most important things you can be doing right now with your child continue to be reading, playing, telling stories, and enjoying time outside to get some exercise and enjoy nature. My thoughts are with you all during this challenging time. Please do not hesitate to reach out if I can be of help in any way. 

    You can reach me at 508-548-1052 ext. 7 249 (I check messages remotely )  or via email.

    Sincerely yours,
    Laney Cooke-Johnson
