New School Year is coming!

Our new school year is right around the corner and we are so excited to get started! 

Your child should receive a letter from their teacher sometime next week and we have Meet the Teacher night on Monday, August 14.

Our first day of school is Tuesday, August 15 at 9am.

We still have just a couple openings in our 3 year old classes, if you refer a family who signs up (and lists you as their referral on the yellow registration form) you will receive a coupon for a free Stay and Play day!

We hope everyone is enjoying their summer and we are looking forward to seeing everyone soon! Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have as school draws nearer.

Last Day of School 2017

Thank you all for such a wonderful school year! We will miss your children so much this summer. The teachers have all enjoyed being a part of your child’s education and partnering with you as you raise these precious little ones.

We hope you all have a safe and fun break and we look forward to seeing some of you again in August.

Can you believe the last day of school is this Thursday? We are so blessed to have been able to teach, nurture and love your children this year!  Please join us on Thursday, May 11th for our Spring Sing and Promotion program.  

Come straight to the church sanctuary once you drop your child off in the morning. We will begin our photo montage at 9:15 am.  Your child will return to class after the program to enjoy the remainder of their special day.

It’s been a wonderful year!  Thank you for sharing your children with us!  See you on Thursday!


Introducing our new director!



My name is Katie Whiteside and I will be the Director here at St. Paul’s Preschool beginning in the 2017-2018 school year.

I am so excited to be a part of this wonderful preschool and I look forward to meeting everyone and getting to know your families throughout the year. 

I have lived in Tucson for almost 10 months and I absolutely LOVE it here!! I am all about sunshine and heat so Tucson is a perfect fit for me. I grew up in Dallas, Texas and my family is all still in the Dallas area. 

I have a precious fur baby named Ranger who is 11 years old but still acts like a puppy. He is really enjoying Tucson as well and all the lizards and rabbits he gets to chase :).

I have worked in preschool for over 14 years and I truly believe this is my calling. This is such a special age and they are little sponges soaking up everything, which is so fun to see. 

I love to chat so feel free to stop and say hello on the last couple of Thursdays when I am at St. Paul’s before our school year is over.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Easter Parties

We had a fun and busy week at preschool this week with pictures on Wednesday and Easter parties on Thursday.

The children really enjoyed finding their eggs outside and kept a look out for the Easter Bunny :).

 We would love to see you here at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church Sunday morning for our Easter service if you are looking for somewhere to attend.

Have a blessed and safe Easter weekend.


Construction Week

The threes students have had a fun filled week learning all about construction!

Students were able to saw and sand a board, nail wood and glue supplies to make a wood sculpture and many other fun activities. What an exciting week!

We are also loving the new shade structure out on the playground. We were sad to see the beautiful tree go but the new structure is wonderful.


We hope everyone enjoyed their spring break and we are glad to see everyone’s little smiling faces back at school this week.


Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Next week is spring break (March 20-24), have a fun and safe time. We look forward to hearing all the stories the students will have to share when they come back to school. 🙂

The Pre-K classes had a fun time today hunting around the campus for Leprechauns. When they got back to their rooms, they found his footprints and a special treat but did not see him, maybe next year!
