Welcome Parents to San Jacinto USD Head Start/State Preschool,
Looking forward to an exciting 2017-2018 school year!
Last year, we had an amazing year. The State preschool successfully completed the State Compliance Monitoring Review and was 100% compliance. Our preschool office was honored to have San Jacinto High School students paint a mural on the office wall. At the end of 2016-2017 school year, our English Language Learners scored above 90% in the preschool assessment. This year, we opened four Head Start full-day classes at the San Jacinto and Hyatt site to meet the needs of our working families. Within the next couple of years, the Head Start program will be adding more full-day classrooms.
The preschool provides each child with a high quality early childhood experience and school readiness. For many children, preschool is their first school experience. We at San Jacinto Head Start/State Preschool want to make preschool a positive experience ensuring that coming to school is enjoyable as well as beneficial. During the 2017-2018 school year, we will focus on Language & Literacy Development and Parent Involvement. We will continue using High Scope Curriculum along with GLAD strategies and Second Step curriculum.
Staff and parent interactions revolve around the concept of the child’s learning. It is the partnership and on-going communication between the parents and teachers which builds the foundation for a successful school experience. We highly encourage parent participation in our program. Both our Head Start and State programs conducts monthly Parent Policy Committee meetings. We hope you will become involved in attending these meetings because your input and ideas matters! In addition, please attend the monthly classrooms meetings as well as the preschool’s events. Last year, the program had a successful turn out for Muffins for Moms, Male Involvement and Family Night.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve as your Director and working with you and your child! San Jacinto Preschool will ensure that our future ready learners are prepared for kindergarten.
If you ever have any questions, comments, concerns, please feel free to come by and see me.
