February 10 - Week 22

Donuts with Dad

Thank you for making time to attend our Donuts with Dad event. It is always a treat for us see the smiling, joyful faces of your children when they proudly bring their dads, grandpas and special guests to their preschool classroom. Moms will have their turn in May!

Thank you so much for your cooperation and patience during our unexpected Early Dismissal last Thursday. It was our first early dismissal in my 11 years at Unity Preschool and went very smoothly especially considering we had Donuts with Dad and pancake/pj day for the Three's!

Just a reminder that we do NOT have school next Monday, February 17. Although the FMSD is using this day as a makeup day, we our honoring our school calendar with the day off because our Staff has already made plans for that day.

Chili for Children Fundraiser

Thank you for your generous support of our Chili for Children fundraiser. Unity Preschool raised over $2400 that will be divided between the Playground Fund and Unity Preschool Scholarship Fund. The Playground Fund is used to purchase equipment for Unity Park (the fenced play area between the Sanctuary and Unity Cemetery). The Scholarship Fund is used for preschool families who may face a financial hardship during the preschool year that impacts tuition affordability.

Thanks for your Donations

Thank you so much for your generous donations of snacks, wipes and hand sanitizer. Our closet is full and should last through the end of the year!

Color Day - Pink

Our next Color Day is this Thursday, February 13. Please wear Pink or Valentine's Day attire.

Financial Notes

Our bookkeeper mailed an end of year form that lists Unity Preschool tuition payments and donation receipts in 2019. If you have a line item for "Playground", that amount is reflecting the chili that you purchased during our Chii for Children fundraiser in February last year. In some cases, you will notice that the tax deductible amount is less than the gross amount because she reduced the cost of the chili from the donation amount. If you notice a discrepancy with tuition payments, e-mail Linda for an updated tuition/registration fee receipt.

Tuition Due - February 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 "February" 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 "February" 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.
