More information will be released at the event. “ The 3-year-old Little Irish Preschool will meet three days a week, Tuesday through Thursday, from 8 a.m. to 12 noon. The maximum capacity for the 3-year-old preschool is 14 students. There is a tuition fee for the 3-year-old preschool, however tuition assistance applications are available. Those wishing to register for either preschool or kindergarten will need to complete the registration form and return to the school office with registration fees. Registrations will be date stamped and will be accepted accordingly. The Round-Up Supper is not just for Emmetsburg Catholic School families but for all families in the community with children who are eligible for either preschool or kindergarten during the 2017-2018 school year. Mrs. Hyslop noted, “The total ECS student population consists of 23% who are not Catholic. These families report they chose ECS for the importance of a faith based education and atmosphere.“ The Round-Up Supper is an opportunity to have fun, meet other families with children the same ages and find out more about what Emmetsburg Catholic School has to offer, with no obligation. Preschool & Kindergarten Round-Up Supper The preschoolers will kick off the event at Corrigan Hall with a performance. They will join volunteers for activities and a pizza party. Parents will have an interactive tour. Kindergarten parents will attend the Kindergarten Round-Up parent meeting and then meet at the Parish Center to close the evening with dinner and door prizes. "All the ECS teachers will be present at this event helping to highlight some unknown facts and new information during the interactive tour,” noted Mrs. Hyslop. "Our teachers are committed to our students. We encourage you to seek answers to any questions you may have. Past families who attended have been quite surprised on how affordable our tuition really is for the investment they receive in their child’s education." One purpose of this event is to provide parents with all the information necessary to make an educated decision on what ECS would provide for their child. “To make it easier for families to attend, we provide the child care during this event which ends up being a lot of fun for the kids, too,” Mrs. Hyslop said. “There are no obligations when they do attend just a great way to have some fun, enjoy a meal and talk with other families!” The child only portion of Kindergarten round-up will be held on Friday, March 3, from 9 to 11 a.m. Students will be invited to spend a couple of hours getting to know the school, teacher and enjoying some activities. Anyone with questions about the Preschool & Kindergarten Round-Up Supper and those who are interested in attending, are asked to contact the school office at (712) 852-3464 or email the school at
