November is a month when we especially remember to “Give Thanks” to God for all of our many blessings. One way we can show thanks is by giving to others in need. During November our preschool provides our families with a lot of different opportunities to give! As a school we care collecting items for Samaritan’s Purse – Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes and baskets are available to put donated items in. We are also working with our church, Montgomery United Methodist Church, in collecting can goods and staples for area needy families as well as “gently used” winter coats for our neighbors in need. What an awesome way to share God’s love with others!!!
The 2017-18 yearly calendar and the latest version of the parent handbook are now available here on the About Us page!
For the 2017-18 school year we are asking all students to bring a “tote-bag” style bag to school each day, as opposed to a backpack or other style bag. Their bag should have an open top that is easy to put their projects and papers in, and should be at least 10×12 in size with straps that allow it to be hung up. We have some available in the school office with the school name on them, which we are selling for $7.00 each, or you can purchase a similar style bag at places like AC Moore or Michaels if you prefer.
We have made this change to make the end of the class packing of bags easier for both the staff and the students. Having to unzip, pack, and re-zip a variety of different style and size bags and backpacks has become very time-consuming for the staff and too difficult for many of our students. As development of self-help skills is an important part of the preschool curriculum we feel this new policy will be be helpful for everyone involved!!
If you have any questions, please let me know!!
