Welcome Letter from the Board President

Hello HRNS families!

On behalf of HRNS Board of Directors I would like to welcome all the families to 2016-2017 school year. My son Brendan is delighted to join Ms. Julie in the Blue door this year.  I have no doubt that your child is excited to start school as well! While the kids are all set to take their shoes off and step in the sand box, we grownups should be ready for an exciting year as well.  As a parent cooperative we will be joining our children in that sandbox (shoes recommended) and eating Pirate’s Booty sitting next to our kids.

As you already know, we have other required tasks for our families. I hope that each of us will take on these tasks with enthusiasm and glee. Everything we are required to do, whether it be committee hours or scrip, we do them to benefit our children. So let’s take on all the jobs at HRNS with a healthy dose of zeal so our kids can have a great time at school!

Rest assure though, HRNS isn’t all work and no play. We have many events planned for both families and parents this year. I would like to encourage every family to set a little time aside to come together and enjoy each other. Our kids do at school why not the rest of us?

Lastly HRNS Board of Directors is comprised of parent volunteers. Whatever concerns you have we probably have them too. So please never hesitate to reach out to any one of us for any questions or suggestions. We will all be working very hard to make HRNS a great place for our children.

Sincerely,

Irene Chen                                                                                                                                       Brendan's mom (Blue Door)                                                                                                               HRNS Board President

Welcome Letter from the Director

Dear Families,
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!  We are so pleased that you chose HRNS for your child’s preschool experience.  I know that you will enjoy your time here as much as your child does!  It is our goal that parents learn about child development and become even better parents through their experience here. I hope you find your efforts rewarded with a sense of community, support, accomplishment, and fun as being a part of our family of families!

We are very excited to announce that our enrollment is the highest it has been in the last 7 years! We also found out that we are now NAEYC accredited; we are ecstatic about the news as we worked very hard to achieve this! We have been able to open up new afternoon classes and add new additions to our program. 

We are pleased to be further developing our knowledge and skills with creative curriculum and plan on bringing amazing things to your children! Our Art and Science Docent program will be continuing this year along with Authors. We are very excited that the children will be participating in not only music this year but drama and dance as well.

We are enthusiastic about our classes we have to offer during our STEAM enrichment, make sure to sign up for them in the office as space is limited!

At HRNS, there’s always a lot going on. In the classroom, on the committees, fundraisers, parent education opportunities, spirit days, potluck celebrations…and more! Please make sure to visit our website often to check dates, times, and all the specifics for what’s happening on campus. In addition, I will be sending a weekly email to you all, complete with updates and reminders for the coming week and month ahead. 
I look forward to getting to know all of you and your children this year. If you ever have any questions do not hesitate to come in and speak with me, our doors are always open. Have a great first week of school!

Warmest Wishes,
Jennifer Neumayer
HRNS Director
