PARENT INVOLVEMENT

PARENT BOARD

The Parent Board is a group of dedicated parent volunteers who serve a vital role in providing enrichment activities to the preschool as well as social functions for the whole school. Examples of these are Fall Orientation Night, the Annual Pumpking Patch with petting farm and pony rides, Stories with Santa and Mrs. Claus, the Mobile Marine Exhibit, several all school park play dates throughout the school year as well as the annual springtime All School Family Picinic.

The Parent Board also sponsors several fundraisers in support of the school. These fundraisers change each year but have included a 70's Las Vegas Night, Casino Night, Innisbruck Wrapping Paper and our most recent event, Fund Run.

  • PARENT INVOLVEMENT

    Parents are welcomed and have many opportunities to participate at Kolbe's Korner Preschool. Every classroom has two volunteer room parents, one for social and one for academic, who assist the teachers with holiday celebrations and with communications with the other parents in the class.

    Parents are invited as guests of honor to read a story to their child's class, to come to the Halloween Parades, the Thanksgiving Feasts, the Mother's Day Tea, Dad's Night, End of the Year Class Graduation celebrations. These all are examples of occasions when parents are invited to participate.

    PARENT TESTIMONIALS

    Kolbe's Korner has such a welcoming atmosphere and most of all it focuses on community building with all the families that attend. It's like a second home for my child and that in andof itself is a true testiment that Kolbe's Korner is special school that stands out above all others. My daughter is always excited to go to school, see her friends, talk to her teachers and learn. When I pick her up she can't wait ti tell me all the wonderful things she did during the day and how much fun it was. The best part of Kolbe's Korner is the families, you meet such amazing people that you know will remain your friends for a long time. I could go on andon about how amazing Kolbe's Korner is, I'm grateful I still have two more children that will get to experience it.

    This is our 4th year in a row at Kolbe's (2 children) and we couldn't be happier. Our children have blossomed and thrived here. The nutured and education they have received is priceless. The same goes for my husband and I. Not only have we made some really strong amazing friendships with other parents at Kolbe's, we have truly felt the love and support from the teachers we have been fortunate enough to have for each of our children. And lastly, Mrs. Paula is amazing. Everyday with a smile on her face and warm heart, she helps parents navigate the many challenges we all face as families and parents. We feel so blessed to have found Kolbe's Korner.

    Kolbe's Korner Preschool is a nurturing, loving environment where learning is made fun! My son has been at Kolbe's since parent/toddler and is now going into his last year in the 4 year old 5 day program. He enjoys school so much! He has not only learned his ABC's and 123's but has learned to share, be compassionate and respectful to others and how to be a wonderful friend. The teachers are exceptional and truly have a gift with little ones! Kolbe has been a great place for my son but our entire family. We enjoy being a part of such a wonderful preschool community.
