May 2018 

Wow it’s hard to believe the end of the school year is right around the corner with only four more weeks of preschool.  It has been a wonderful year learning about all the children and getting to know you as families.  We are so proud of all the children and how much they have learned.  But our greatest fulfillment is knowing that they all know Jesus as their Savior.  They know that Jesus said, “I am with you always.”  Matthew 28:20    

Come to the farm!  The Schoenfelder Family, whose daughter Jaelyn attends the preschool on Tuesdays and Thursdays, has invited the preschool families to visit their farm.  This farm has been active and has supported the Schoenfelder families for four generations; it is not a hobby farm.  During the visit we will be seeing calves, piglets, cats, possibly a kitten, and possibly horses.  We may also get to see the farm trucks and various big planting equipment. 

Here is this information about the visit:
Please see special instructions about this event in the special invitation that was sent home a few days ago.
                        Who:  All preschool families
                        When: Thursday, May 10, from 1:00-2:30pm (rain date May 15)
                        
Where: 4340 30th Ave. SE (directions on the back) 
                        What: Farm tour, snack provided by preschool, and outside playtime

As the end of the year approaches it’s time to think about our Preschool Picnic which will be held on Friday, May 25 from 11:00-1:00 at Bear Creek Park.  This is the same park where we began our preschool experience together back in September.  For this event families join together for lunch and play time.  It's up to you how long you want to stay.  We hope you will pack a lunch for your family and join us.  Preschool will provide beverages and a treat!  In the event of inclement weather we'll picnic in our church fellowship hall, have a few organized games for the children, and play in the preschool.  Please see the sign-up sheet on the parent desk in the next week or two.

Chapel for the month of May will be on Thursday May 17 and Friday May 18 at 8:35 am both days.  Our theme will be Generosity and Helping Others.  Parents and siblings please take this last opportunity to join us before preschool concludes for the summer!

The 20th Anniversary Celebration of Precious Is the Child Preschool is coming right up on May 20th.  Refreshments will be served our fellowship hall at 9:30 and the children will sing four songs in the first portion of the 10:30 worship service.  We have been enjoying preparing some of our favorite songs.  We hope you will plan ahead to join us that day!  We’ll be placing a sign-up sheet at the Parent Desk next week; please sign-up if you plan to attend so we know how many to plan for and which children to expect for singing.  The children will gather in the preschool at 10:15 to rehearse briefly and line up. 

Preschool Registration & Open House for new and returning families will be announced in the next week or so.  We usually hold it during the last week of school or the first week off for summer break.  Be watching your email for the date and time to be announced.  We will continue enrolling for the 2018-2019 school year until classes are filled.  Current families who plan to register a current child or a younger sibling for the fall session are encouraged to do so sometime in May before the school year ends.  Please see Mrs. Burfield if you have questions or need to work out details.  I am glad to help in any way I can. 

During May we do special projects for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.  We also work on a group project that turns into a little gift the children take with them by which to remember their preschool friends.  This group project will require written permission from parents for each child to be in a group picture that they will take home.  Our last two days in the classroom will be Wednesday May 23 and Thursday May 24.  We'll be having a pizza party both days and we’ll have extra outdoor play time weather permitting.

Tuition is due on May 4.  Thank you for your prompt payments all year!

 

Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms and grandmas!
And since we won't be here for Father's Day Happy Father's Day
to all the dads and grandpas!

  

God’s blessings for a fun and safe summer!
