DECEMBER PRESCHOOL NEWS

We hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving and gets to spend some quality time with your family!

 

The children’s assessments were sent home on Friday and the rest should go home this week. Please understand that their progress was based on what they did the day of assessments. Although, your child may know more than what they showed us, this is only a checklist to let us know what we need to work on at preschool and it gives you an idea of what they can work on at home. The staff are available before or after preschool, if you have any concerns with your child’s progress.

 

Our classroom parties will be Tuesday, December 14th and Wednesday, December 15th. We are asking that you send any treats for the classroom by Friday, December 3rd.

 

Our Preschool Christmas Program will be held on Thursday, December 16th, for the Tuesday/Thursday classes and Friday, December 17th, for the Monday/Wednesday/Friday classes. The program will begin at 11:00 am in the church sanctuary. The children will still come to preschool at their regular time. Parents are invited to celebrate with us on this festive occasion.

 

Mt. Pleasant Church will be offering various events during the holy season of Christmas. Please refer to the church newsletter or church website at www.mtpumc.org for dates and times. I will also keep you updated through the Mt Pleasant Preschool Facebook page.

 

 

Each year, I like to remind everyone about the following:

 

**PLEASE DO NOT send your child to preschool if they are sick!

**Tuition is late after the 15th of each month. If you have a problem, please contact the director.

**The preschool is open from 8:50 am to 12:50 pm Monday-Friday. Following a regular schedule is very

    important for preschoolers. We stress attendance because it gives the child a feeling of security.

**REMEMBER to watch the local TV stations for any inclement weather. We follow the Catawba County

    Schools decision on closing preschool.

 

I am including our inclement weather policy. This info can also be found on the Preschool website, and you will receive a message through Procare.
