Welcome Back to School!


August 10, 2016 


Dear Parents/Guardians:


Welcome to the preschool programs offered by the School District of DeSoto County and thank you for choosing to send your child to DeSoto Early Childhood Center/New Horizons Voluntary Prekindergarten. This is a very important time for both you and your child. We are excited about sharing your child’s first experience at school.


Educational studies have proven that early intervention is a key indicator in a child’s future academic success as he/she transitions from grade to grade. Our Early Childhood teachers will be working with your child on his/her cognitive (academic) development, language development, physical development (gross and fine motor), and social/emotional development.


Communication between the home and the school is an essential part of our program. Monthly Newsletters/Calendars are given to the students to take home on a regular basis to provide timely information about the school program. Please read the newsletters and weekly notes from teachers for important information and dates of upcoming workshops, Early Childhood events, and classroom activities.

Below are some important dates for August:

August 31 – Early Release at 12:00 Noon

We look forward to working with you and your child. Welcome to our Early Childhood Programs!


Mrs. Phyllis Clemons, Principal
