August 2019 Newsletter

This month we’ll continue with our ocean theme and keep reviewing the alphabet, numbers, shapes and colors. Next we will be studying about farm animals.  The Nevada County Fair is August 7th – 11th, and it’s a wonderful opportunity for kids to learn about pigs, sheep, cows, horses, chickens, rabbits, etc….  Have your preschooler ask the 4H and FFA kids all about the animals at the fair.

 For all my kids starting Kindergarten this month, we’ll miss you!!! I know everyone is going to do great and love Kindergarten.   Make sure to come back and visit. We want to know how everything is going at your new school.

Backyard Schoolhouse party is Saturday August 3rd – 2 pm at Memorial Park.  Bubbles, Pop Cycles, and Friends!

Come celebrate a great year of Preschool and say goodbye to our friends leaving to start Kindergarten!

Parking Tips

Dear Backyard Schoolhouse Families,

I would like to give some helpful tips on parking.  I have made three parking signs of which you can park.  The way to park in space 1 and 2, is to pull all the way into the driveway and back into the parking spot.  Make sure that your vehicle is centered with the parking sign so that when others come they have room to pull into the other parking spaces.  Parking space 3 should only be used if parking space 1 & 2 are taken.  Parking 3 you can just pull forward into, but you must wait until the people in parking 1 or 2 have left, so that you can back up into their spot to pull forward out of the driveway.

Please try to keep dropping off and picking up safe. Make sure that your child is always accompanied by someone if they’re in the parking area.  Make sure to tell your children to stay in the school yard until you are ready to get in the car.

I appreciate you helping me keep everyone as safe as possible.  Please let everyone that might be dropping off or picking up know about the parking tips.


Ms. Katy
