Unity Preschool News

January 16 - Week 18

Welcome Back

Welcome back from what we hope was a fun and restful Christmas Break that was filled with quality time with your family. We are excited to return to Unity Preschool with many "Winter" activites ...... if only the weather would cooperate. Remember that we follow the Fort Mill School District (FMSD) regarding weather closures and if there is a delay, we will not have Preschool.

It is registration month so please return your registration forms and fees by next Thursday, January 23 so that you have a spot for next year.

Just a reminder that we will not have preschool this Monday, January 20 because the FMSD will be closed in recognition of the Martin Luther King holiday.

Snack, Wipe and Soap Donations Needed

Our snack closet is almost bare. We keep back-up snacks on hand for when our snack helpers may be sick or weeks when a snack helper may not be assigned. We would appreciate donations of any of the following:

*Gold Fish

*Animal Crackers

*Vanilla Wafers

*Graham Crackers

*Baby Wipes

*Hand Soap

Thanks in advance for you donations!

Chili for Children Fundraiser - INFO COMING

Your child will be bringing home a Chili for Children order form next week. Unity Preschool will be selling chili and chicken soup on Super Bowl Sunday (February 2) to raise funds for our Scholarship Fund and our Park. Our preschool families will be able to pre-order and can pick up on Super Bowl Sunday or have delivery in the Monday or Tuesday car lines.

Color Days (Gray and White)

As you can see below, our students had fun celebrating Gray Day today. Our next Color Day is Thursday, January 30 and it will be WHITE DAY!

Meet Ms. Dannie - Our VIP

This semester I plan to feature one of our special VIPs (Volunteers Impacting Preschool) in each newsletter. Ms. Dannie is one of our weekly classroom helpers. She assists with Center Time in our Fishy class every Wednesday. Ms. Dannie has been a member of Unity for over 50 years. She is a retired school librarian and worked for 40 years in various school districts. She loves the Clemson Tigers, her dogs (Jimbo and Roxie) and volunteering at Unity Preschool!
