Year end Celebration!

  • Posted on June 4, 2014 at 11:19 am

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our year end celebration picnic :)   We could hardly believe how fast this school year went by. It seems not that long ago that we were having Orientation & meeting many of you for the first time. Soon after came the first day of school for your little students. Since then we have come to know each other better & we have all become much closer, hopefully developing some lasting friendships along the way.

Another big THANK YOU to everyone at our school for their involvement & help when needed. This has been a shinning year; showing true cooperative spirit!

It is sad to see the year end, but it is bitter-sweet. This past year was a happy time that we spent helping your child to learn & grow, setting a solid example & giving them tools for their future education. We did that. More importantly; we did it together!

Have a fun memory filled Summer!

With love,

Johna’ DeBellis

Director, Paso Robles Co-Operative Preschool

Plan to join us for our upcoming Spring Fundraiser.  Bring the family and your appetite to our Tri-Tip BBQ on Saturday, March 22 from 2:30pm – 5:00pm at the school.  We will be set up for a traditional oak fired tri-tip BBQ with all of the fixings.  Tickets are $10 each and just $40 for a family meal (feeds 5 people). Drinks and dessert will be available for purchase as well.  We will also have a 50/50 raffle going on with tickets for just $1.

If you can’t stick around and visit, plan to DRIVE-THRU the alley (on the west side of the school between 15th and 16th) and take your meals to go!  Tickets are available from any Co-Op family, at the office in advance or at the door.

The BBQ is a great opportunity for new and old (even really old) families to get together and enjoy a great meal in support of our wonderful preschool.  A portion of the proceeds from this event will also be donated to the Jana Carlson Memorial Fund.  Hope to see you there!

Welcome Back!

  • Posted on September 24, 2013 at 5:16 pm

Welcome back to all of our returning and new families. Time is flying by – we are already into the second half of September and the year is off to a great start! So much has been done to get our school in top shape for the year. Our enrollment is up (our 2/4s classes are currently full and a waitlist has been started.) All of the teachers, students and families are excited for the year ahead.

Our fundraising efforts are underway. The Mixed Bags sale is on now until Sept 30. Each family received a packet in their folder with the complete details of the campaign. Sample bags are on display on the porch and an email was sent out that can be forwarded to friends and family. You can place orders with the hard copy form and write a check or order online at: Our school ID is #135884. All orders must be submitted by Sept 30.

Don’t forget to download the PRCP GoodSearch toolbar (see the link on the left hand column of this page).  It installs into your browser (IE/Firefox, no Safari yet) and provides a search box with PRCP designated as the organization to support. It will also notify you of GoodShop merchants that donate a portion of your online purchases back to our school. There is even the option to register debit/credit cards with their GoodDining program and earn more funds for our school when you dine at their participating merchants. You can find out all about it at their website. Bottom line, the individual sums may not be huge but they do add up over time. Our first year in this program our school received over $400!!

We can also earn easy money for our school through the Escrip program. Register your Vons Club Card and every time you shop a percentage of your total will be donated to PRCP. Its really that simple! You can register directly online or send us your club card number and phone number associated with it and we can enter it for you. Again these funds are available to our school at no cost and very little effort and can really supplement our fundraising efforts if we all participate.

You can still order a PRCP t-shirt for your child and/or yourself. We would really like to have all students purchase a t-shirt so that during field trips we can quickly identify our group and also show off our school spirit. Youth shirts are $10 and Adults are $15. The order form is in the office. Please submit your orders with payment by Sept 30.

The next meeting of the Board of Directors is Tuesday, October 1st at 1pm at the school. The Board meets monthly on the first Tuesday. All parents are welcome to attend.

Thanks for all you do to support our wonderful school!

PRCP Board of Directors
