St. John’s Preschool Plus
The holiday season can become so hectic and overwhelming that we miss the most important piece of the true meaning of Christmas. I would like to encourage families to simply breathe and consider the great truth that we have already been given the best gift ever and that is Jesus Christ. Enjoy this time with your children and make sweet, messy memories that your family will hold on to for years to come.
Some of our thematic units include Christmas, family traditions, stars, and Jesus’s birthday.
Thank you so much for sharing the love of Jesus to those who are less fortunate than we are. We collected four boxes of Thanksgiving food/goodies and two turkeys that went specifically to families from Zuni Elementary.
December Center-Wide Activities
Our center-wide activities this month will include a special chapel time celebrating Jesus’s birthday, a visit from Santa Claus, and our annual Christmas program.
Our lovely Ms. Barb has titled the Christmas Program, “Let There Be Peace.” Pastor Craig will play the role of Jonathan the story teller. Mark your calendar for Thursday, December 7, 2017, 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.
The United Methodist Women have gifted the preschool program with $300.00 to purchase new outdoor picnic tables for both playground areas. This is a perfect Christmas gift for our preschoolers.
For the safety of all our students we remind families not to prop or keep the preschool door open. If you do not recognize an adult that is wanting access to the preschool wing, please call the preschool office at 883-0496 or ask the individual to check in at the church office and a church volunteer or employee will walk the person to the preschool office.
Preschool Plus will modify its schedule based upon how APS makes its decision. If APS closes school, preschool will close also. The day will not be made up, and there will be no tuition adjustment for the day. If APS has a delay, we will not offer early morning extended care, but will open for preschool at the normal time.
