Homecoming 2019 Dress-up Days, Sept.16-20

EC students can dress-up with the Upper and Lower Schools for Homecoming! Because of our unique schedule, we are offering two options Mon-Thurs.


Monday (09/16): Disney or Superheroes

Tuesday (09/17): Superheroes or Disney

Wednesday (09/18): Wacky Day or Beachy Day

Thursday (09/19): Beachy Day or Wacky day

Friday (09/20): School Spirit- wear your Eagle or Knight Apparel

Every other month EC students can submit book orders through "Scholastic Book Clubs". This is voluntary, but a great way to purchase inexpensive literature for your child. The EC also gets free books in response to your participation. You can peruse the flyer sent home or purchase from any flyer at <scholastic.com/bookclubs>

Our class code is: GN9QN

If you have any questions or would like your order held back as a gift, contact Mrs.Byely, dbyely@tpcs.org

Next Due Date is September 20th

Dismissal Signs

For parents who dismiss out of Door #3, please ensure that your Name Sign is elevated in your vehicle. Due to the glare of the afternoon sun, the signs are not visible when they are laying on your dash. Using a clothes hanger with clips or attaching a string so that the sign hanging from the rear view mirror works best for the PreK teachers.

Ways to SERVE and ENGAGE in the EC

Subs Needed in the EC

1. Have you considered being a guest teacher in the EC? You can use up your service hours or be paid! If you would like to know more about becoming a sub at TPCS contact Mrs. Byely at dbyely@tpcs.org

Service Opportunities

2. The PreK teachers need assistance with copying Bible and/or Math curriculum. Please contact Mrs. Wassner kwassner@tpcs.org

Weekly Tear Down

3. As you know, our EC space is shared with the church, so it needs to be set up and torn down every week! We now have set-up covered but would love for parent volunteers to help out with tear down on Thursdays (2:00-3:00) and Fridays (1:30-2:30). You can show up in the EC office area of the church at the designated times. Staff will be there to direct you. There are two slots and we are hoping that two families sign up to help each other. If you are one family with multiple members coming, please only use one slot to sign up.

Who's Teaching at the EC? (Teacher bios)

Anne Niehaus- Threes Lead

My name is Anne Niehaus. I am a mother of three kids, ages 9, 7, and 5, with another one on the way and my husband is currently serving in Kuwait. We live in Brownsburg and attend Connection Point Christian Church in Brownsburg.


I have worked in the early childhood field for 12+ years with a variety of ages (infant- school age) and my last position was as an Assistant Director, for 8 years, at a small ministry.


This is my second year with Traders Point, this year as a Lead Threes teacher. I also work with the after school program at the Academy.


In addition, I volunteer at Reagan Elementary, in Brownsburg, with their kindergarten literacy small groups.


I currently hold an Associates in Early Childhood Education and am finishing my Bachelors degree, at Ball State, in Early Childhood Education with a minor in Special Education and I will also have a certification for Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA).
