On behalf of the Mayflower Preschool Council, I’d like to welcome you to Mayflower Preschool for the 2022-2023 school year. This will be my third year serving on the preschool council and I am honored to be your new parent council president.
Mayflower Preschool has been serving the Grand Rapids area since 1968. As a non-profit entity, we rely heavily on the participation of parents and the volunteer council to ensure that we are meeting the high standards of our families and continue to provide high quality early childhood programs that have been accredited for many years.
The Mayflower Preschool Council consists of parents who have a dedicated interest in the preschool. Our mission is to encourage and facilitate communication between and among parents, teachers, and administration, to foster a sense of community and belonging for Mayflower Preschool families, and to raise supplemental funds that will enhance the educational programs, teacher professional development and facilities at the preschool in ways that will have a positive impact on our students.
Fundraisers the council runs each year include:
Sponsorships from local businesses
Mabel’s Labels name tag sale
Fall Festival Event
Charleston Gift Wrap Sale
Ice Cream Social Event and Auction
Because of your support in these fundraisers, we have been able to provide our preschool with:
Security upgrades (new classroom/exterior/stairway door locks)
Staff appreciation meals & celebration events
Newly painted cubbies and Director office update
As a council we will be asking for additional parent volunteers throughout the year and would love your involvement! Examples include: volunteering at fall festival or the ice cream social, signing up to be a room parent or becoming an official “Friend of Mayflower” with a donation toward the school. You can find out more by checking out the Mayflower Council page on our school website at www.mayflowerpreschool.org/council.html. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to meeting you and thank you for sharing your children with us! Hillary Tilton President, Mayflower Preschool Council email@example.com
