GUMC Preschool

October Newsletter 2021

Thank you for a GREAT Start!

Dear GUMC Preschool Families,

As I walked through the halls locking up after the first fire drill of the new school year, I heard...

... a teacher reading to her class,

...the music of Mat Man,

...delightful squeals from the playground,

...and the sounds of children's laughter and singing.

It is SO good to be back at GUMC Preschool!

Parents and care-givers, Thank You for your cooperation in completing the health-screening and Procare sign-in process and for helping your children learn school routines and to wear a mask. Thank you for understanding and abiding by the many COVID-related guidelines and protocols that help to keep our community healthy and safe. Thank you for being so positive and encouraging your children as they transition into the classroom. GUMC parents are the BEST! You really do make all the difference!
Blessings for a Beautiful Fall!
Miss Kim
