January 2019

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!  It’s good to be back!  We hope and pray your new year starts off well and that God continues to bless you in ways he knows is best.  We’re looking forward to all the adventures we get to have with your children during the second portion of the year.   

During conferences last fall I mentioned a survey that we would be asking parents to fill out.  The intention was to hand it out then, but time got away from me and it didn’t happen.  The survey is now ready and you will receive one in your child’s cubby next week.  The Board of Directors and I would really appreciate it if you would take a few minutes to fill it out and bring it back in.  We have not included a place for you to write your name so you may remain anonymous if you like. 

It's time to start thinking about enrollment for the 2019-2020 school year.  Beginning Tuesday January 22nd, preliminary Registration Forms will be available on the Parent Desk for those returning next fall or for those who want to enroll a younger sibling.  A Registration/Open House event will be held on Wednesday, January 23 from 4-7pm.  Currently enrolled families enrolling a child next year may include the registration fee in any monthly tuition check and turn in the form at that time.  Please let staff know if you have any questions. 

Chapel this month will be held on Wednesday January 16 at 8:35 and Thursday January 17 at 9:10.  Parents (or grandparents) and younger siblings, please feel welcome to join us for this short time of worship.  Our focus will be on kindness, the 5th fruit of the Spirit.  Now the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.  Against such things there is no law.  Galatians 5:22-23

Precious is the Child is due to renew its accreditation rating through Parent Aware of Minnesota.  We currently hold a 4-star rating which is the highest available at this time.  Our goal is to maintain that rating while also making improvements within our rating level.  During January, February, and March Mrs. Burfield will be completing the necessary paperwork.  And both Mrs. Burfield and Mrs. Schmidt, as lead teachers, may be taking some special training to fulfill accreditation requirements.  Parent Aware coaches will be in the classroom from time to time, observing our teaching strategies and teacher/child interactions.  Our next rating will be issued by July 1, 2019.  Please let us know if you would like more information about this process.  We also ask that you keep the staff in your prayers as we work through all the requirements.  Thank you!

May God be your help and your guide for 2019 and always!
