The First Academy Preschool Blog, Week of September 8th


Parents, please take a moment to mark your calendars. The following are important dates that you do not want to miss:

Message from Sarah Donovan, Director of The Extended Educational Programs

Hello, September! It’s hard to believe that the August days are once again behind us and the sweet smell of fall will soon be in the air. Growing up in Pennsylvania, fall was filled with visits to the Cider Mill, rainbows of orange and red leaves piled along the streets, and the crisp wisps of wind blowing summer into the past. Although it is quite not the same in Florida, fall still feels like home. Friday night football games, students enjoying the cool orange days, and families coming together around warm fires. Blessings for a beautiful start to this beautiful new season.

Message from Mrs. Grayson Merritt, Principal of the Preschool

Upcoming Events

Sunshine Committee (Note Date Change):  Please mark your calendars for Thursday, September 22nd at 9:15am as we come together to plan a wonderful year celebrating our teachers and staff.  This committee is made up of incredible parent volunteers who will partner with the Preschool Principal to plan monthly “blessings” for our teachers as well as Teacher Appreciation Week in March.  We would love for you to join us!
