Welcome to Pre- 4S


Welcome to St. Helena Preschool.  We look forward to working with you and your children this year!

If there is a Two Hour Delay then drop off for Pre-K students is 10:00am. There will not be a formal Car Line. Please just park your car, walk your child to the door and ring the bell.

“Tiger Time” begins at 8:00am. This is the earliest that you can drop your child off at Pre-K. The cost is $7.00 per day. There is no charge if the child will be attending CARES that day.

Weather permitting, we will go outside every day!  Please dress your child according to the day’s weather. Even if it is raining we may have to walk over to the “Big School” for an activity such as Music or Library.

Please check the website for continued updates to the calendar.

St. Helena is collecting box tops.  Please ask your families to save their box tops to benefit our school.  You can put them in your child’s folder. Thank you!
