December News
Dear Preschool Families,

It's hard to believe that the year is almost over already! We've had so much fun learning new things together and have lots of great things planned for the next few weeks.

The Christmas Program will be on Thursday, December 7th in the church sanctuary. The Tuesday/Thursday class will perform at 6:30 pm and the Monday/Wednesday and 4-day will perform together at 7:00 pm. Family and friends are invited to come for this entertaining evening of seasonal poems and songs! Please have your child to the preschool room 15 minutes prior to the start time listed on your calendar. You may come into the church as soon as it is empty from the earlier performances. We will have cookies and punch in the fellowship hall to the south of the sanctuary following the program. PLEASE BRING ONE DOZEN COOKIES OR HOLIDAY TREATS TO SHARE. Please label them with which class your child is in and take them into the kitchen before the program. Thanks! The front row will be reserved for teachers only so the kids can see us during the program. The second row of pews will be reserved for picture taking. Please keep it to one family member in these pews so that everyone can get pictures.

Christmas Parties will be on Wed, Dec. 13th and Thurs, Dec. 14th during the last hour of class. We have a sign-up sheet at the preschool for those who are willing to help. We will be having a gift exchange during the party. Girls please bring a gift meant for a girl, and boys a gift meant for boys. We will draw numbers to see what order presents will be picked from the piles. There is a limit of $5.00 for the gift. Please stress to your child that he/she will not be getting their own gift back and that they do not get to choose who will receive it. We have had some upset children in the past who did not understand this.

Christmas Break will begin on Fri, Dec. 15th and we will resume on Wednesday, Jan. 3rd. Please enjoy this joyous season with your families. Remember that "Jesus is the reason for the season" and take time to share this message as a family during this busy time!

Looking ahead, we will have "Muffins with moms" on Wednesday, Jan. 10th at 11:00 and Thursday, Jan. 11th at 11:00 and 2:30. "Donuts with dads will be on Wednesday, Jan. 17th at 11:00 and Thursday, Jan. 18th at 11:00 and 2:30. We hope you can join us!

We are looking forward to another great month. We are blessed to have such a wonderful group of families to work with, thanks again for sharing your child with us. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please call 345-2595 or email

Merry Christmas!
Kelsey, Dani and Lori
