Summer is upon us and that means that another great school year is in the books!  I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for trusting me to serve as Chair of the Woodinville Family Preschool Board for the 2014-2015 school year.  It was a truly exciting and valuable experience for me, as I have never served as Chair of any board before (although I was on the WFP Board the three previous years in various roles).  We were able to accomplish many important things this past year.  Cecile and Beth both got to go to national conferences and brought back great ideas to be used at the school.  The school purchased a water pump to be used in the new water feature that will be installed this summer.  The children in the multi-day classes got to use the pump during outdoor play and loved being able to get their own water.  The school also had a new furnace installed.

Going forward into next school year we have some exciting things in the works!  The first are the new items being added to the outdoor play space.  A Boy Scout, and WFP alumni, who is working towards his Eagle Scout will be installing the water feature in the outdoor play space this summer.  He has been working on this over the last year and has consulted with landscape architects and engineers to make his project a success for our school.  The outgoing Pre-K class also graciously donated a climbing wall to be installed, which will go in this summer as well.  The school will also be hiring a new Outdoor Curriculum Specialist.  This person will have to fill the big shoes left behind by Christine, but I’m sure we will find someone great!

Thank you again for the terrific school year!  I look forward to seeing you all in the fall (or at the park this summer)!
