Colorado egg farmers are donating a dozen eggs, up to 25,000 dozen, to Feeding Colorado food banks for every social media Easter post that uses the #CEPGiving hashtag now through Easter. Help us share the news as far and wide as possible via your network including social media and in any donor or partner communications such as e-newsletters, etc.
 
This marks the eighth year in a row that Colorado Egg Producers has partnered with Feeding Colorado to help feed those in need. These efforts will help the more than 650,000 people who are at risk of hunger in Colorado and the more than 50 million people in the United States.

Each of our Colorado egg farmer members are proud to help and support our community. We sincerely appreciate your help and support to increase our reach here in Colorado.
We are placing another order for the current Storybook Journey.  To buy a copy of "The Pout Pout Fish" by Deborah Diesen for $4.00, please email the school.

Out Of The Mouths

Ashton: the woes of Spring Break, "It's not fair that we're going on a trip and we're not going to miss school."
Anna: referring to her lunch "Those are mine.  They're not really pills or anything, they're called olives."
Oliver: is going into space and he was bringing his "tomcuter" and his "hockey talk" (computer and walkie talkie)
Marcos: volunteers to write snack on the menu board and asks, "How do you spell Fried Bug Livers"

Annual Drive 2015

In the upcoming weeks, all families will be receiving a letter for our Annual Drive.  This drive helps us cover the gap between providing high quality preschool, and the amount we charge for tuition.  If you would like to learn more about it you can visit our website where you can also donate online.  Our goal is to have 100% of all current families contribute to this drive, and have just as many alumni, families, and friends give as well.  Giving over the next week will save the school money on printing and postage, so please consider giving online, or dropping a check in at the school.
Thank you in advance
Children's House Staff.

Registration 2015-16

We are currently taking registration for the 2015-16 school year.  New families are touring, and our schedule is filling up fast. The registration form can be downloaded here, or you can now register online here and to secure your spot, we need to receive the registration form and $45 fee.  If your child's registration is not received by Spring Break - March 20th, we will assume you are not definitely returning, and will open the placement up to our wait list.
We are offering a referral incentive this year for all current families. If you refer a family to us, and they come for a tour and sign up, you will receive 3 referral vouchers, which can be used for a morning or afternoon drop in, and will be valid for the rest of the school year.  This is the time of year when parents are starting to look at preschools for the next school year, so help us to spread the word.  We do have afternoon schedule openings open for the remainder of this school year, so let all your friends know.  We are not going to limit the number of vouchers each family can earn.
