Welcome Spring! And the giant muddy hole our playground usually becomes. We have some bad news and some good news about the playground. First the bad news: it’s going to be excessively messy this spring because of the good news - which is: The preschool has a new slide! We have a deadline to have it installed in the ground by April 15th. This deadline is a requirement of the grant that Mrs. Burfield wrote last September, which enabled us to purchase the slide in the first place. We are so excited that this year’s children will get a chance to use it!
As we welcome March we also welcome the church season of Lent, the time when we remember the suffering, death, and resurrection of our Savior. The preschool and Ascension Lutheran Church would like to invite you to our mid-week Lent suppers and worship services beginning Wednesday March 4th. The first one was Ash Wednesday, February 26th. Dinner is served buffet style in the fellowship hall at 6:00 and the worship service follows at 7:00. We hope you will join us!
Parent/Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Tuesday March 10th and Thursday March 11th from 3:00-7:00 pm. Remember: Preschoolers are welcome at their own conference if you want to bring them, but siblings will need other care. Mrs. Burfield is looking forward to visiting with parents about children's preschool experiences!
Chapel will be held on Wednesday, March 18, at 8:40 am and Thursday, March 20, at 9:00 am. The topic for this time will be Respecting Others. Parents and siblings please join us!
Parent Bible Study is also on Wednesday March 18th from 10:30-11:25. Remember, we have child care for younger siblings so that hopefully won’t keep people from attending. We hope you will join the group! There will be a sign-up sheet posted the week before.
Preschool enrollment for the 2019-2020 school year is in full swing; we have many children registered already. The registration form is available from Mrs. Burfield if you still need one. The form along with the registration fee will hold a child’s spot for fall. Be sure to let the teachers know if you have questions.
Parent Aware Pathway 1 Early Learning Scholarships are available for the 2019-2020 school year for families that qualify financially. They should be filled out and turned in by July. If you would like to get it filled out and have Mrs. Burfield mail it in with others at the appropriate time this summer please speak with her. The scholarship covers a child’s tuition for one year, up to $7,500.00, which is much more than it costs to attend Precious Is the Child for a year in any session. To find out more talk to Mrs. Burfield!
Pajama Day will be on Wednesday March 25th and Thursday March 26th. Be sure your favorite jammies are clean so you can wear them to school and show your friend! We can’t wait to see everybody’s sleep duds!!
Tuition is due March 2nd and 3rd.
Spring Break is March 30 – April 3.
God's richest blessings to you as we prepare to celebrate the coming of our Savior.
