Memories with Mom/Book Fair Week
The proceeds that we receive from the book fair also help us purchase new books and resources for our preschool classrooms! Thank you so much for supporting our book fair!
The Memories with Mom dates are Sept. 13 and 14. Please be sure to check with your child's teacher to know which day to come for your child's class. We can't wait to host all of our moms in just a few weeks! It is such a special day!
Please ALWAYS TURN RIGHT when exiting the carpool line! This is for safety and also it keeps our line moving so we are not backing up the carpool line and waiting on traffic. Thank you so much for helping us with this!
Chapel with Mrs. Linsey
I am so excited to announce our Chapel time will be held in our Sanctuary this year!
I am eager to allow the children to “touch and feel” the special areas in our Sanctuary.
I will still dress up, use puppets, sing songs and make our Chapel time lots of fun!
Ms. Janis, our organist, will join us too and show us the organ, the pipes and how she makes beautiful music to praise our Lord.
Our Chapel time will be on Mondays with each age group meeting together; 2’s, 3’s and 4’s.
I am looking forward to watching your children grow spiritually!
Preschool Snack Time!
Snack time is a fun and important part of everyday at Weekday Preschool. Parents bring in snacks on a rotation basis determined by your child's teacher. Your teacher will alert you to any specific allergies in the class that you may need to keep in mind. NEVER SEND PEANUT BUTTER! We do not allow peanut butter or nut products of any kind in the building.
Ways to incorporate Healthy Snacks in School….
Healthy snacks help kids stay calmer, alert, and focused in school in addition to keeping their tummies satisfied and full. High sugar and low protein snacks do the opposite. To maximize your kids learning time and assist teachers in keeping kids focused – we can feed our children healthy, high protein, whole grain snacks.
Choose food – not food products. Avoid high fructose corn syrup and choose foods with the least amount of ingredients (less processed).
Grains: Whole grain crackers, popcorn, Honey wheat pretzels, Crisp flat breads (Wasa crackers), Homemade whole wheat muffins or banana bread
Fruits: Apples, Bananas, Blueberries, Clementines, Grapes (halved), Kiwi, Orange wedges, Strawberries, Raspberries, Watermelon (cubed), Orange wedges, Dried fruit (raisins, pears, apples, etc.)
Vegetables: Baby carrots, Cucumber slices
Things to avoid for snacks: Donuts, Cookies, Fruit gushers/gummies, High sugar yogurts
