Winter Car Seat Safety

Studies have shown that you should remove your child's winter coat before placing them in the car seat. This has been on the news lately so we wanted to bring it to your attention. Click on the link below to see an article with tips for winter car seat safety.

Items for Winter

It's time to start bringing winter clothing. Please make sure your child has mittens, hat and a winter jacket. Snow pants and boots are a must once the snow starts to fly, but some children also like them for warmth before the snow.

We do take the children outside at least once a day. Our outdoor policy reads:

We try to go outside every day. We are not staffed to keep children inside when everyone else is outside. Please make sure your child has the proper clothing to go outside every day. Our policy in the winter is as follows:

15 degrees and below – Don’t go out

16 – 25 degrees – 30 minutes max.

26 degrees and above – Staff discretion

Parent/Teacher Conferences

We will be offering Parent/Teacher Conferences for all children that attend 3 or more days each week. The conferences will be Thursday, December 2nd and Monday, December 6th . Please make sure you have signed up or spoken with your child's teacher. As a reminder, Miss Ream will be at the church from 5:30 to 7:30pm to watch children so you can attend the conference child-free.

Jesus' Birthday Party

We will be having a party for Jesus' Birthday in the Church Fellowship Hall on Wednesday, December 22.

Kids Say the Darndest Things

During devotion time, one of the kindergartners asked Mrs. Arlint with a completely serious face, "How do you know everything?"


The Busy Bees had several kids brings treats for special celebrations during the week. One of the boys who had not told Miss Sherrie, "When I'm 61, I'm going to bring treats too."
