Precious Is the Child News - January 2020
HAPPY NEW YEAR!! It’s good to be back! Praying 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.
With the New Year comes new beginnings. Many of you have a church home that you attend regularly; we thank God for that. However, if you are looking for a church or Sunday School for your preschooler and other children, our church, Ascension Lutheran welcomes you to join us! We have a wonderful Sunday School program that your children will enjoy while learning about Jesus. And Pastor Kom’s sermons help connect God’s Word to our daily lives. The beginning of a new year often brings resolutions and new beginnings to our lives. This might be a great time to make a new beginning in your walk with Jesus.
Parent Bible Study will be held on Wednesday January 15th this month. 10:30 seems to be a good time so we’ll stick with that, and Mrs. Schardt will continue to provide childcare. The moms who have attended are finding it to be a very helpful study of God’s will in raising our children. We hope to see more and more of you there!
Just in case we haven’t mentioned this to all of you, Mrs. Plagenz is expecting a baby in May. Congratulations Mrs. (and Mr.) Plagenz! She will be with us until May 1st if all goes well, and Mrs. Neseth will be filling in for her for those last few weeks of preschool. We pray that Mrs. Plagenz has a healthy pregnancy and birth, and hopefully she will be able to join us for our Farewell picnic on May 22nd.
It's time to start thinking about enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year. Beginning Tuesday January 21st, 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 towards the end of January, date and time to be determined. Currently enrolled families enrolling a child for next year may turn in a Registration Form and include the Registration Fee of $70.00 in any monthly tuition check. Please let staff know if you have any questions.
Chapel this month will be held on Wednesday January 15 at 8:45 and Thursday January 16 at 9:00. Parents (or grandparents) and younger siblings, please feel welcome to join us for this short time of worship. Our focus will be on understanding and caring for others, thinking about others’ feelings and needs.
o Tuition is due January 6th & 7th. Thank you!
o NO SCHOOL on Monday, January 20th it’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him,
so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
This is my prayer for you all in 2020, and always.
