Preschool News!

Dear Preschool Parents,

            Goodbye summer, hello fall and welcome to the Creator Preschool Family!  We have been blessed with delightful children and great families!  It doesn’t get much better than that!    

            September was a wonderful month for making new friends and getting reacquainted with old ones.  Welcome new families! 

            For the last few years, we have had Julie Buelle of Buelle Photography come to school to take class and individual pictures.  Mark October 8th and 9th on your calendar and look for more information to come. *There will be a class time change for the afternoon classes to accommodate Mrs. Buelle’s schedule.  The T/W/Th afternoon class will begin at 12:15pm on Thursday, Oct. 8th, and end at 3:00pm.  The Mon/Fri afternoon class will begin at 12:30pm o Friday, Oct. 9th, and end at 3:00pm.  Classes will go back to their normal schedule the next week.

            Due to Covid19, we are unable to have our field trip to Maris Farms on Oct. 15th and 16th.  Instead, we will have an in-house carnival for the children near the end of class time on Thursday, October 29th and Friday, October 30th.  We are in the early stages of planning and may need some parent volunteers to help with the games.  If you would like to help, please let us know.

            If you are getting tired of looking for yellow clothes, circles, the number 1, or the letter A and M, do not worry.  During October we will change to orange and black, the letters Pp, Oo, and Nn, the number 2 (and 3 for the four/five year olds) and spheres and cylinders.  We will also learn about corn and pumpkins and the difference between city life and country life. 

            Halloween is a difficult holiday for a Christian preschool.  Of course, we do not believe in the scary, negative (witches, devils, monsters) symbols, but the children love “dressing up”.  A good compromise is to bring the costume for show and tell.  We will allow extra time to appreciate them.  Most children have difficulty staying in costume the whole day anyway.  We use this opportunity to discuss how Jesus loves all of us, no matter how we look on the outside and changing our appearance does not make us any different inside.  God sees the goodness inside us, regardless of the outside.

            We feel very blessed to be working with such wonderful children and involved parents.  We are so glad you have chosen us and we look forward to a wonderful year.

             We have openings in several of our classes.  Please pass this on to family and friends.  You are our best advertisement!

            *And lastly:  We would love to have one parent from the T/Th and T/W/Th classes help put together a slide show for their class for the end of the year.  Ms. Farrer will be doing the slide shows for the W/F and M/F classes.  Please consider this and let us know as soon as possible.  We will supply the pictures.

Thank you,

Your teachers,

Andrea (Mrs. D), Ragan (Mrs. Allen), and Cheri (Ms. Farrer)
