November 2018-------------------------Volume 2, Issue 3

Fall Weather is Here

Don't forget as the weather changes please send along a jacket. Make sure that your childs change of clothes in their backpack is appropriate for the cooler weather. Don't forget to label the jacket with your child's name.

Preschool Entrance Doors

The safety of our preschool children is very important to us. Entrance to the preschool doors will be locked between the hours of 9:15 am and 1:45 pm. Anyone dropping off late or picking up early needs to check in at the church reception desk.

November Tuition

If you signed up for EFT via Tuition Express, November's tuition will be debited on Monday, Nov.12. All tuition is considered late by the 15th of the month.

Hearing and Vision Screening

Insight will be here on Monday Nov. 5 to provide both hearing and vision screenings to 4 year old children that still need it. If you are unsure if this is needed for your child, please check at the Promiseland offices. The fee is $10 for each test.

Silly Hat Day

Wednesday and Thursday, Nov. 7 and 8 have fun sending your child to school in a silly hat, the more creative the better! Children enjoy this fun activity as much as the teachers do! The class with the highest participation will enjoy an ice cream sandwich party on their hat day.

Thanksgiving Chapel

On Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 12 and 13, the children will enjoy gathering together with other classes and learn about counting our blessings and being thankful as we sing fun songs, eat our snacks and wear turkey hats. Our verse this month is Psalm 118:1- O give thanks to the Lord for He is good. Our fruit of the spirit is "Thankfulness."

Our Teachers are “Pietastic”!

Wednesday and Thursday, Nov. 14 and 15 parents can bring a pie, cake, cookies or dessert (store bought or homemade) to be shared with the teachers to enjoy over the Thanksgiving holidays. You can include a note, prayer or card on the baked good for a teacher. Collection tables will be in front of the Promiseland desk. Our five day classes have an assigned day with Ms. Debbie's class bringing Wednesday and Dana's class bringing Thursday. Teachers will take turns coming to the pietastic table and choosing pies or desserts to take home.
