Conferences are coming up the week of November 5 thru 9. The sign-up sheets are on the Parent Desk. Conferences are scheduled in 20-minute increments and we’ll do our best to stay on time. If another family is having a conference when you arrive you can help by giving a knock as you walk in and then take a seat on the chairs in the church narthex (the BIG room where we play in bad weather). Then we will know the next family is here and we need to wrap it up.
Family Night is scheduled for Tuesday, November 13 from 6:00-7:30 pm. The large year calendar that you received at orientation says Wednesday Nov. 14, but we have to change it due to staff conflicts. Please sign up at the Parent Desk, after the conference sign-up is done, and include the number of people attending from your family. The planned schedule is as follows:
v 6:00-6:30 Children and parents do activities together in the classroom
v 6:30-7:15 Parents meet in the fellowship hall for a short presentation while children continue to play (infants stay with parents). Topics will include Positive Discipline Techniques, Process Over Product, an article about the importance of Social Skills in Kindergarten, and hopefully Dianne Thompson on Resurrection Lutheran Kindergarten.
v 7:15-7:30 Gather in the classroom to finish off with a snack.
Diane Thompson is the kindergarten teacher from our sister school, Resurrection Lutheran School. We’re waiting to hear from her whether or not she’ll be able to join us. Family Night is a great time to ask any questions about preschool or kindergarten, and to get to know other parents better.
Chapel services will be held on Wednesday, November 14 at 8:35 and Thursday, November 15 at 9:10. Parents and younger siblings are welcome to join us for a short worship. Our topic this month will be Peace. Remember we are focusing on the fruits of the Spirit this year: The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Ephesians 5:22-23.
Ascension Lutheran Church would like to invite you to attend Thanksgiving worship on Thanksgiving morning, at 9:15. Many of you have your own church homes and some do not. Regardless, Ascension members would love to welcome you for worship on Thanksgiving, or any time. We hope some of you will join us!
We would like to extend a BIG THANK YOU to all of our preschool volunteers! We’ve had help with our library, filing, picture board, bulletin board, taking pictures in the classroom and more. It’s a blessing to have so many people willing to pitch in to make our preschool a great place. Many others have signed up to volunteer too. We’ll be contacting you soon!
We will play outside on most days weather permitting, even after the snow (and the temperature) falls. When it's extremely windy, wet, or cold we will play in the BIG room instead. Please send every day just in case:
· winter coat
· water resistant mittens (knit mittens/gloves don't hold up very long)
· separate outside boots
· and when it snows send snow pants too
PLEASE NOTE: NO WET BOOTS/SHOES INSIDE THE CUBBIES.
IT DAMAGES THE WOOD. THANK YOU!
There is NO SCHOOL November 21-23 to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday.
Tuition is due November 1 & 2.
Thanksgiving blessings to all!
