St. John’s Preschool Plus
Decemeber 2018 Newsletter
Merry Christmas! This month will be filled with many fun activities and celebrations for our preschoolers. Some of our thematic units include stars, family traditions, reindeer, Christmas and the birth of Jesus.
Thanksgiving Meal Donations
The preschool families and staff members collected four boxes of non-perishable food items and two turkeys for two families from Zuni Elementary. This is a church community outreach that the preschool continues to be involved with. The boxes were delivered to the school on Tuesday, November 20th. Thank you for your generosity!
New Staff Member
Please help us welcome our new staff member Mrs. Andrea Sills. Andrea will be an additional teacher in the two-year-old classroom. We are excited to have her join our team.
December Center-Wide Activities
Our center-wide activities this month will include a special chapel time celebrating Jesus’ birthday, a visit from Santa Claus, and our annual Christmas program.
The Christmas Program is titled “We Are Kids Singing for the Baby”. It is scheduled for Thursday, December 20, 2018, at 6:00 p.m. in the Family Life Center (gym). Students need to arrive at 5:45 p.m. Please take your child to their classroom, manually sign them in and then join us in the gym. Our toddler students do not take part in this program.
We ask that every family bring in a tray of finger foods or goodies to share at the reception that follows.
APS Outreach Program
We have another opportunity to help our community. Locker #505 is a non-profit organization that provides appropriate school clothing to K-12 Bernalillo County students in need. During the month of December we will be collecting clothing for this program. We will have a box located right outside of the preschool office to place your donations.
Preschool Heating System
On Tuesday, November 27, the preschool wing did not have heat. We moved into the church classrooms that did have heat and continued with a full day of preschool for our students. Thank you for being flexible and understanding as the heating system was being worked on. We did get a new pump installed and by the afternoon the heat was back on.
