How will I know if school has been cancelled due to bad weather? Pre-K will be cancelled when Hamburg Central Schools are closed. Local TV and radio stations broadcast school closings.
What sorts of family/parent events take place during the course of the year? Pre-K has a Parent Information Night, spring concert, field trips, parent advisory committee meetings, parent/teacher conferences, and an end of the year picnic.
What can I do to help my child learn at home? Love, play, read and talk to your child. A child, whose emotional needs have been met is more likely to be successful outside the home. Children learn by doing - through play they learn to understand their world. Reading to your children is one of the easiest ways to prepare them for more structured learning that is required later in their school careers. It provides them with ample opportunities to increase their language skills and their ability to sustain attention. On top of that, reading is incredibly pleasurable for both you and your child.
