UPK registration during COVID-19

April 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, Governor Cuomo has ordered the closure of all school buildings until further notice. If you had an appointment scheduled with me for your child’s enrollment intake, it is cancelled. In an effort to get your child’s registration completed you can do one of two things:

1. Mail all paperwork completed with copies of requested documents to:

Elsy Gonzalez, PreK Administrator 113 Bowman Avenue
Port Chester, NY 10573


Beginning Monday, April 20th there will be a black mailbox located outside the district central offices (located at 113 Bowman Avenue) where you can leave your documents. Please have all paperwork in an envelope to ensure all documents are together.

Estimado Padres/Tutor,

Debido a la pandemia de coronavirus COVID-19, el Gobernador Cuomo ha ordenado el cierre de todos los edificios escolares hasta nuevo aviso. Si usted tenía una cita asignada conmigo para la matriculación de admisión de su niño(a), será cancelada. En un esfuerzo para poder completar la matrícula usted puede hacer una de dos cosas:

1. Al completar todo el papeleo con copias de los documentos requeridos puede enviar por correo a:

Elsy Gonzalez, PreK Administrator 113 Bowman Avenue
Port Chester, NY 10573

2. Comenzando el lunes, 20 de abril de 2020 habrá un buzón de color negro localizado afuera de las oficinas centrales ( localizada en 113 Avenida Bowman) aquí puede dejar sus documentos. Por favor ponga todo el papeleo dentro de un sobre para asegurar que todos los documentos estén juntos.

Fun activities while at home!

Here are some great, creative activities to do at home!

Simple Play Dough Recipe


2 cups of flour

3 tablespoons of olive oil

1/2 water


Food coloring ( if wanted)

 Your Imagination


Combine all ingredients into bowl and knead! That's it!


Kids can flatten, roll, tear play dough to make shapes, letters, count the balls. You can use tooth picks, spoons, cookie cutters, to make different objects.  You can add food coloring to explore making new colors.Kids can just create and have fun using their imagination to create and problem solve!

Number Hop!


Blank paper ( index cards. sticky notes, plain paper)

Markers, crayons, or pencil

Space to move


Write numbers on blank paper. This is a great opportunity to have your child practice writing skills.

Take the numbers and scatter around the room on the floor. Call out a number and watch the child hop or jump from number to number.

More ideas:

Include letters to help identify  the difference between letters and numbers. Add shapes to help with shape identification. You can also make cards with a dot on it- such as one dot, two dots, three dots etc. and have your child jump from the number to the right number of dots.

Coffee Filter Art


Coffee Filters

Washable Markers


Spray bottle, turkey baster, or dropper


Color the coffee filters with the markers. You can color one side or the whole thing.  Fold in half or quarters and drip/drop water on it. Unfold the coffee filters carefully. What happened to the markers? Did you make any new colors or patterns?

More ideas:

Use the coffee filters to practice scissor skills. Tear the coffee filters to make mosaic tiles for other art work. Hang the coffee filters on a sunny window to make a stained glass effect.
