Valentine Dance 2012

February 14, 2012

from Penny Miller, director of Holy Cross Early Education Center –

Our EEC/Kindergarten Valentine Dance was a big hit!  There were lots of delicious treats to eat, a photo spot to take Valentine pictures, and dancing, dancing, dancing.  We had a great turn out, with almost 70% of the EEC students and Kindergarten students in attendance.  Favorite moments of the night included dancing the “Tooty Ta” with the teachers and Dr. Beverlin and the Snake Line.    You can view, copy or print photos from the night at Shutterfly.com.  The password is  holycrossop.

(Check out the Holy Cross EEC Blog by Mrs. Miller @ holycrosseec.wordpress.com. It’s a fun blog, plus she has some photos from the Valentine Dance!)

Preschool Perks

January 18, 2012

from Penny Miller, Holy Cross EEC Director –

In-house registration began yesterday for the Holy Cross Early Education Center.

If you have a preschool-aged child and would like to enroll, stop by the office at Holy Cross and ask Anita for a Preschool enrollment form.  You can also give us a call at 381-7151, and we will get one sent home for you.

We have a Holy Cross Perks Program here at the preschool.  There are a few perks at the EEC  for having children enrolled at Holy Cross Catholic School.

  • Your preschool child will receive a 20% discount off of tuition if they have a sibling at the big school.
  • You are also able to drop off your preschool child at little bit early at 8 a.m. for free and let your child stay from 2:30 – 3 p.m. for no cost.  This free service helps with the coordination of our class start times with the elementary school.  You can drop your elementary student off at Holy Cross and then drop your preschooler at the EEC at 8:00 so you do not have to wait until class start time at 8:30.  The afternoon class ends at 2:30 but you can keep your preschool here until 3:00 which is just in time to be in the parking lot for dismissal at Holy Cross.
  • Another perk is that the Holy Cross school families get to take advantage of the early in-house registration date rather than waiting for our open registration.  Holy Cross Parishioners also receive $25 off of their registration fee.

Let us know if you have any questions!

Extra Noticias para preescolares

De la Directora Penny Miller, Del EEC-

La inscripcion interna comenzó ayer para el Centro de educación temprana de Santa Cruz.

Si tiene un niño de edad preescolar y le gustaría inscribirse, puede pasar  por la Oficina de la escuela Santa Cruz y pedir un formulario de inscripción preescolar con la Sra. Anita. Usted puede también llamarnos a 381-7151, y nosotros podemos enviar por correo el registro para usted.

Santa Cruz Perks es un programa que tenemos en el preescolar. Hay unos privilegios en el EEC  para tener niños matriculados en la escuela católica de Santa Cruz.

  •      Su niño preescolar recibirán un descuento del 20% de la matrícula si tienen un hermano en la escuela grande.
  •      También puede dejar a su niño preescolar un poco temprano a las 8:00 sin cargos extras y su hijo tambien puede permanecer entre las 2:30-3:00 sin costo alguno. Este servicio gratuito les ayuda a los padres a coordinarse con el horario de las clases de la escuela primaria. El padre de Familia puede dejar a su hijo en la escuela Primaria de Santa Cruz y luego dejar a su preescolar en el EEC a las 8:00 para no tener que esperar el inicio de las clases a las 8:30. La clase por la tarde termina a las 2:30, pero usted puede mantener su preescolar aquí hasta las 3:00 que es justo a tiempo para estar en el estacionamiento para recoger a sus otros hijos de la escuela de Santa Cruz.
  •  Otra Ventaja es que las familias de la escuela de Santa Cruz tienen la oportunidad de registrar de una forma temprana en vez de esperar al registro que es abierto a toda la comunidad. Los Feligreses de Santa Cruz también recibirán $25 de descuento para su inscripción.

Háganos saber si tiene alguna pregunta!

A New Playground Sail

October 5, 2011

from Holy Cross EEC Director Penny Miller –

We finally received a much needed shade sail for our preschool playground. The sail was installed this past weekend. The children have already enjoyed the lovely shade that it provides all around our playground. The sail will have to removed during the winter months to preserve the life of the sail and protect it from the ice and snow. We were able to purchase the sail with funds we have raised over that last two years with fundraising. Thanks goes out to our fabulous parents over the last two years!

And speaking of fundraisers, the EEC will begin their annual Bread Dough sale soon. The delicious bread braids will be for sale Oct. 19 – Nov. 4. Profits from the sale will continue to benefit the preschool playground.

Una nueva vela  para la sombre en la Parque

 Directora Penny Miller del EEC- Santa Cruz

Finalmente recibimos una gran vela que nos dará sombra la cual era necesaria para nuestro parque infantil  en el preescolar. La vela se instaló este fin de semana pasado. Los niños ya han disfrutado de la hermosa sombra que proporciona a todo el parque. La vela tendrá que quitarse durante los meses de invierno para preservar la vida de la vela y protegerla  contra el hielo y la nieve. Hemos podido adquirir la vela con fondos que hemos recolectados estos dos años anteriores. Gracias a todos  nuestros padres por las fabulosas ventas realizadas durante los últimos dos años.

Y hablando de recaudar fondos, el EEC iniciará su venta anual de masa para la preparación de galletas. Las trenzas de pan delicioso estará a la venta a partir del  19 de octubre – 4 de noviembre. Los fondos recaudados seguirán beneficiando al preescolar.

Help Needed on Saturday

October 12, 2010

from the director of our Holy Cross Early Education Center, Penny Miller –

I am looking for volunteers on Saturday at the preschool. We are getting some landscaping done by our little walkway up to the EEC.  The railroad ties will be replaced with landscaping bricks, the garden area will be weeded, a weed preventative fabric will be put down, new plants will be added, and mulch will finish off the project.  I am so excited to update the look as it is getting pretty shabby.  I don’t know if anyone has noticed but the wooden railroad ties that serve as a retaining wall are rotting away.  This will be a good, new look!

Adam Lang, a preschool parent and a landscape designer, will be heading up the project.  He needs a few hands to help him out.  He would like to get 5 or 6 people to help.  If you would like to put in some volunteer time, please contact me at the preschool at 381-7151 OR email at pmiller@holycrosscatholicschool.com.

The job will be done on Saturday morning, Oct. 16 at 9:00.  It will probably go into the afternoon. Adam is hoping to get it pretty much completed in 5 or 6 hours.

Thanks for your help.
