WELCOME to ECFE Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to explore our catalog to learn more about the programs and services we offer to hundreds of lifelong learners in our district. This is an exciting time to be part of Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools (PLSAS)! Our district is growing rapidly. Thanks to voter approval of PLSAS’ two school funding requests last fall, construction projects are underway to accommodate our increasing enrollment. Through 2020, you will notice renovations and additions taking place throughout the district, as well as construction of a new elementary school and new Bridges Area Learning Center. To stay up-to-date on all of our projects, you can check out our dedicated web page that includes a construction phasing plan, building designs, stakeholder input process, FAQs and more. The following page will be updated frequently: www.priorlake-savage.k12.mn.us/construction .

Teri Staloch, Ed. D Superintendent Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools

We are grateful to our community for making this investment to help ensure all learners have the spaces, staff and materials they need to succeed. Be well, Teri Staloch, Ed. D. Superintendent

Dear Early Learning Families, Welcome to a new school year! We are very excited to share our new programming catalog with you. New this year, you have the option to register for Fall, Winter, and Spring sessions at the start of the year. You may still register seasonally if you prefer. Also new this year are slightly adjusted class times, more preschool-aged class options, additional Lunch Bunch sections, and a class specifically dedicated to families of young children with special needs. Research shows family engagement in school supports positive educational and developmental outcomes. At its foundation, ECFE programs begin to build the family-school relationship, create opportunities to build your network of support, and start your littlest learners on a positive educational journey. We can’t wait to partner with you this year and hope to see you soon!

Becca Richardson Early Learning Coordinator

All the Best, Becca For more information call 952-226-0952

Class Separation Explanation

Non-separating: Parent educators support interations in the classroom. Gradually separating: Grown-ups and parent educators begin the separation process slowly, being sensitive to the readiness of the children. Flexibly separating: Parents and teachers decide separation timing together based upon the needs of the group. Separating: Children spend time with their teacher while grown-ups gather with a parent educator for part of the class. Do I need to live in school district 719 to attend? We welcome all Minnesota families. Scholarships are limited to in-district residents.

May I Have your Attention, Please (Adults) Tips for parents to help themselves and children stay focused and get motivated! Lack of motivation and organization, procrastination, impulsive behavior and not listening are common parental complaints particularly when ADHD is involved. Attention issues result in high frustration levels and keep individuals from achieving their full potential.
