October 3 - Week 5

Happy Birthday Mr. Albert!

We are excited to help our special friend, Mr. Albert, celebrate his birthday this month. Mr. Albert is our Church Sexton (for over 30 years!) and he works so very hard to keep our preschool clean and tidy. We are surprising him with a "Hands Down, You are the Best" bulletin board next week. Your child will decorate "hands" at preschool and we will sing and have a special treat with Mr. Albert on Thursday, October 10! You are welcome to send a special "thank you" note next week that we will give to Mr. Albert.

P.S. Mr. Albert has been in the hospital this week for some pulmonary issues. Our Three's and Four's classes made special cards for him. We are hopeful that he will be going home today. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

Scholastic Book Order Thank You

Thank you so much for your generous Scholastic Book Orders. We earned maximum points/benefits and purchased over 100 books for our Preschool Library and for our students (Birthday, Christmas and End of Year gifts). The books arrived late this morning so you will receive your orders next week.

Our next school order will be sent home before Thanksgiving so that you can purchase Christmas gifts. You are, however, welcome to order any time of the year on the Scholastic website. If you use our Class Code (GXCK8) I will be notified and can finalize the order and have it sent to school.

Color Day - Go BLACK

This month we have two Color Days scheduled on our calendar. Please wear BLACK next Thursday, October 10. Orange/Halloween Day is October 31st.

Directory Update

Thank you for returning your Directory Information forms. I hope to have the Directory finished next week. I will e-mail it and send home a hard copy.

Meet Ms. Jane

We are so blessed to have Ms. Jane, our Storyteller, visit us once a month to share her great stories with us. Ms. Jane was a former Preschool Director in New Jersey. She moved to Fort Mill to be closer to her two daughters and grandchildren. She LOVES to read (for herself and to young children), travel and work in her garden. Some of you will meet Ms. Jane and hear her magical stories at our Christmas Celebration in December!

Miscellaneous Reminders

*Label Clothes: Please remember to label jackets/sweaters/extra clothes that you send to school so that we can make sure they go home with the correct child.

*Back-Up Clothes: Please include a back-up pair of underwear and shorts/pants for your child. We are still having occasional accidents and the children are much happier to put on their own clothes.

*Shoe Reminder: Please remember to wear tennis shoes on Wednesdays and close-toed shoes on other days. The children are not happy when mulch gets on their feet!

*Folder Reminder: Please remember to empty your child's folder at least every week!

Upcoming Events

Please mark your calendar for these exciting events:

Thanksgiving Feast (Three's and Four's): November 21 (11:00 - Fellowship Hall) The entire family is invited to join us for a delicious Thanksgiving meal. We will send invites with additional information in early November.

Christmas Celebration (Three's and Four's): December 10 (11:00 - Preschool): A special friend (mom, dad or grandparent) is invited to join his/her child for a special craft and a story from our Storyteller.

Tuition - DUE OCTOBER 10th!

Tuition envelopes should be in your child's folder this week. Tuition is always due on the 10th of each month.

Cash Payment: If you are paying by check or cash, enclose it in the tuition envelope and return it in your child's folder. Please mark "October" on the tuition envelope. Checks should be made payable to "Unity Preschool."

Credit Card Payment (Not Recurring): If you are paying by credit card, there is a link below. Please mark "October" on the tuition envelope and return it in your child's folder so we know that you have made the payment. These payments are made through our church business office, so we do not know that you paid by credit card unless you mark the month and return the envelope.

Credit Card Payment (Recurring Account): You may set up a monthly recurring credit card tuition payment. Please set up such payments for pay dates between the first and the tenth of each month. Remember that the end date is April if you made an August payment. If you choose this option, you will NOT receive a tuition envelope each month.
