Parent Handbook

Teamwork is Important to Us

Welcome to Alamo Heights Presbyterian Church Day School! This is an exciting time in your child’s life and I am happy you have given us the opportunity to share in it. We have an exciting year planned for your children. Our excellent staff brings fun, creative, and challenging activities into each classroom. As a Christian based school, we strive to give your child exceptional care, an excellent education, with a Christian foundation. Our low child/staff ratio permits us to identify each child as an individual, and to better understand and meet their individual needs. This handbook should answer many of your questions about our program. However, please feel free to ask for any information you do not find here. In case of policy changes, parents will be notified by way of written correspondence. We thank you for this opportunity to share with you information about Alamo Heights Presbyterian Church Day School and look forward to a wonderful year together. Childhood is a journey, not a race. The staff of Alamo Heights Presbyterian Church Day School is ready to partner with you and your child on this journey. We look forward to a wonderful year of fun experiences and growth. Welcome to our family!


Our current parent-teacher projects:

  • “Reading Hour” workgroup – The parents of children of all ages read a story to the classroom.
  • Organization of “Father/Child Day” – Once a year, Alamo Heights Presbyterian Church Day School hosts a Father/Child Day event. The day’s activities are planned by our educators and members of the parent working group.
  • Room Parent – Each month we ask 4 parents to become honorary room parents to spend an hour each week inside the classroom to assist in art projects, music class, etc.  The parents act as a teacher’s aide and get to interact with their child and classmates.
  • Child-Parent Talent Show – Once a year Alamo Heights Presbyterian Church Day School holds a student-parent talent show which always plays to rave reviews.  Singing, dancing, skits and magic acts are just some of the ways to showcase your child’s many talents.

We’re always grateful for support above and beyond the call of duty.
