Director’s Discussion


        As we celebrate the month of February, we look forward to our Valentine’s parties.  Please note the day of your child’s party on the calendar and how many cards to bring from the article below. We will be holding our annual Malley’s Chocolate sale this month with delivery in time for Easter.  Everyone will receive their order forms by the end of the month.  Please note, that you can order online also.

Beach Week will be from February 27th through March 3rd.  More info will be sent later about this fun week.

Thanks for your support with all of the fundraisers and Spirit Days.  Your help is greatly appreciated.

Valentine’s Celebrations

The dates for our parties are posted on our front calendar page.  During our parties the children will be able to create and decorate valentine bags or boxes, share valentine cards and/or treats with their friends, play a party game or hear a special story, and share a party snack.

On the day of the party, each child can bring Valentine’s cards and/or wrapped treats for their classmates.  The Number in each class is as follows:

AM 4’s – Mrs. Groh- 14 and Mrs. Martin – 12

AM 3’s (3 day)-  Mrs. Roman – 13

AM Pre-K – Mrs. Winters – 12

PM 3’s13  – Mrs. Winters – 13

 PM Pre-K –  Mrs. Murphy – 12

AM 3’s (2 day) – Mrs. Groh – 13 and Mrs. Roman – 13

Young 3’s – Mrs. Winters  – 6 and Mrs. Kirchner – 10.

Your child can write their name on the inside of the card, but we ask that the cards do not have classmates’ names on the outside. This is because the kids pass out their own cards to their friend’s bags and it can be tricky to match up all of the names and bags correctly.

If you signed up to help with the party, your child’s teacher or room mother will be contacting you.

Security Door


The front door of the church is now a secured entrance!  During school hours the front door of the church is now locked and you must be buzzed in.  If you are visiting the school and come in through the front entrance, just ring the bell, the church administrator will be able to see you and you will be asked to open the left side door.  WE are happy to have this extra layer of security for all of our Preschool families.




School Photos


Studio South Photography will be at RRPP on Wednesday, February 22nd and Friday, February 24th  to take school pictures.  Dates are on the Calendar page. Order forms will be sent home the week before.  If you would like to order, please follow the directions on the picture envelope and send them in by picture day.


Spring Fundraiser- Malley’s Chocolates


This month everyone will receive a Malley’s brochure from which you can order your Easter candy.   The school will earn 33% on everything you order.  We hope you take this opportunity to support RRPP.  You can set up your own web page so that friends and relatives can order on-line!  On line orders will be shipped directly to the person ordering.

Orders will be distributed the beginning of April. If you have any questions about the Malley’s candy orders, please call the school office at 895-5437 or e – mail Lauren Negrey at lauren_negrey@yahoo.com.


Class Openings at RRPP


If you know any family who has a 3 to 5 year old that is looking for a nursery school for the fall, please have them call to set up a visit.  We still have openings in many classes.


Supplies needed


  • Supplies – I know most of you have turned in your supplies for the year, but if you haven’t, please send quart size Ziploc bags and a few boxes of snacks for the classrooms.  Thanks.
  • Folgers Coffee Containers – We are collecting 33.9 oz. Folger’s coffee containers through the end of March.




  • Car seats – If at all possible, please have your child’s car seat on the driver’s side of the car.  It makes it safer for your child and the teachers, especially in the snowy, icy weather.
  • Heinen’s – If you shop at Heinen’s and have one of their Tasteful Rewards cards, go online to your profile page and select Rocky River Presbyterian Preschool. The school will receive 1% of every purchase.
