If you signed up for EFT via Tuition Express, October's tuition will be debited on Tuesday, Oct 10. All tuition is considered late by the 15th of the month.
~ Don't forget to sign your child in and out every day
~ Pick up time is 2:00 pm. Many of our teachers have their own school aged children to pick up after they leave preschool. If you are going to be late, please call 972-547-7000 so that the receptionist can relay a message to your child’s teacher. A late pick-up fee of $10 will be added to your child's statement if they are picked up after 2:15.
We ask that you make sure your child has a spare change of clothes in their backpacks each day. In addition, we like to keep extra on hand. If you have any spare children's clothing (preschool ages both boys and girls) mainly shorts and pants, we are collecting them at the Promiseland Desk.
On Tuesday October 17 and Wednesday October 18, Tiny Texans Photography will be at the preschool. They will take pictures on a pony and offer each student (those that are comfortable) a free pony ride. The pictures taken will be available to view and purchase at the Promiseland desk, within two weeks. Western attire (chaps,vest, hat and bandana) will be provided by the photographer.
On Wednesday October 18 and Thursday October 19, pull on your boots and send your children dressed in their best western getup. We will have some western activities this week enjoying s'mores on a stick around our camp fire and having western activities in PE. Bring snack and lunch as usual.

Construction is ongoing and continues to run on schedule. Later this month you will notice a wall going up as you enter the church lobby. The Promiseland desk and Church lobby areas will be under renovation and all desks will be relocated to a different area. Thank you for your patience with our dust and noise as we make more room for families and ministries. All construction is scheduled to be completed by Easter!
