October 24 - Week 8
Help us share some LOVE with our Fort Mill Neighbors
Chapel is a very special time of worship and praise in the Sanctuary. Our Chapel theme this year is "Fruit of the Spirit." We have fun learning about the nine special kinds of "fruit" or character traits that grow in us as we learn to love God with all of our heart.
"The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control." Galatians 5:22-23
During our next Chapel on October 29 we will talk about LOVE. Unity Presbyterian Church is currently collecting food items for the Fort Mill Care Center to provide a Thanksgiving meal for Fort Mill families. I would love the children to bring an item (or more) to Preschool during the next two weeks. During Chapel, we will discuss loving our neighbors and place our items in the collection bins. The items most needed right now include: rice (1 or 2 pound bags), grits, boxed instant potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, canned pumpkin, evaporated milk and other canned goods. We will collect through October 31.

Art By Me Fundraiser
Next week your child will be bringing home an Art By Me Parent Order Form that shows you the artwork created by your child earlier this month. We have used this company for several years and have been exceptionally pleased with the quality of the items. There are over 60 gift items made from your child's art to purchase just in time for Christmas. Each year your child makes a different picture that relates to his/her class animal. Several families have purchased the tiles or Christmas ornaments each year as a reminder of their child's time at Unity Preschool. All proceeds from this fundraiser will be used to purchase additional learning materials for our Preschool classrooms.
To place an order:
1. Credit Card Orders: Click the link BELOW to place your order ON-LINE using your unique ART BY ME ARTWORK ID number at the top of the order form by Thursday, October 31; or
2. Cash or Check Orders: Return the Order Form and Payment (Cash or Check made payable to "UNITY PRESCHOOL") to school by Thursday, October 31.
If you are placing an order you need to do so by Thursday, October 31. This is a firm deadline so that we can receive the products before Christmas (our estimated delivery date is December 10). If you do not wish to place an order, feel free to enjoy the pictures of the beautiful art made by your child at the bottom of the order form.
Thanks in advance for your support of Unity Preschool.

*Directory Update: Directories will be e-mailed today. A hard copy will be in your child's folder next week.
*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 (Fall/Winter): Please include a back-up pair of underwear and pants for your child. We are still having occasional accidents and the children are much happier to put on their own clothes. Please make sure that the clothing is seasonally appropriate.
*Folder Reminder: Please remember to empty your child's folder at least every week!
Thanksgiving Feast (Three's and Four's): November 21 (11:00 - Fellowship Hall) The immediate family is invited to join us for a delicious Thanksgiving meal. We will send invites with additional information in 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. One of the best presents that you can give your child during this busy time of year is your presence and that is our goal of this Celebration.
