Parent Connection

We had a great month of December! We had a special stocking stuffing mission for the foster children of the First United Methodist Children's home. The donations were so plentiful and generous that we were able to fill 75 stockings for ages 2 months - 18 years old. We were so touched by your generosity, thank you so much for donating! We are finishing up our "Armor of God Study" and excited to start the study "Rocking Ordinary." Here is what is coming up this month with the Parent Connection! For a sneak peak video summary, click on the picture of the book on the right.

Kindergarten Readiness Meeting

Our annual KINDERGARTEN READINESS meeting will be on Thursday, February 21st at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. We are so excited to have Carrie Corder, Clearcreek Elementary Principal, will be joining us and discussing what you and your child can expect as you prepare for, enroll in & start Kindergarten. They have a great deal of information to pass along. This is an amazing opportunity to gather information, ask questions & get answers.

This is always a popular meeting! We will have child-care available at both meeting times. Please let me know if you plan on attending (9 am or 1 pm) and if you will need childcare at


Many of you have had your winter conferences with your child's teacher and many of you are in the process. Please contact your teacher for scheduling, if you have not yet done so.

Health & Safety

In order to be pro-active I have attached our inclement weather policy and illness policy. We want to keep everyone safe and healthy in the new year! :)

Speaking of being safe...please, please remember to park in the side lot off of East Street if walking in to pick up or your child at the end of preschool. We are seeing more and more people parking in the front lot and walking through the pick up line which makes us very nervous as children can dart between the cars. Please also be very cautious in the parking lots and keep a hold of your little ones. They are too little for drivers to spot. As a driver, please be extra vigilant and cautious.
