Exciting Change for Preschool

PreKWe our excited to announce that our preschool enrollment numbers have increased drastically over the first semester. As of January 2nd, we will have 19 students enrolled!

To give the children the best learning environment, we will be  splitting our preschool class into a morning and an afternoon session.  This change will take place after Christmas break – beginning January 2, 2013. The younger students will attend the morning session while those students eligible for kindergarten in the fall will attend the afternoon session. This change will allow Mrs. Heiting to better individualize activities to the group and to each student.

Morning Session: 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (Breakfast will be served.)

Afternoon Session: 12:00 to 4:00 p.m. (Lunch will be served.)

The schedule for the preschoolers will be much the same. Drop off and pick up will still be in the classroom. Their day will still include Circle Time, Small Group, PE, Music, Free Play, Outside Time, Etc.

Bag of Books Program

The Preschoolers started to visit the library this month.  They listen to a story, then get a bag of books.  There are ten books in the bag for parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, anyone to read to their preschooler.  The books came from various sources.  The bags were donated by the Security First Bank and filled by the National Honor Society.  We have 50 bags to rotate among the preschoolers.  Our goal is to have every preschooler be read to for at least 10 minutes every day.  Next month the Noah’s Ark Preschool will join the program.  If there are other preschoolers in the community who would like to join the program, call Mrs. Matthews at the school (638-4434) for more information.


Preschool Christmas Open House

Please mark your calendars!  You are invited to our first annual Preschool Christmas Open House on Monday, December 17th at 6:00pm.  The Preschool class will share their Christmas songs with you as well as have activities and refreshments.  We are all very excited to share what we have been working on with our families and friends!  Also, a big thank you to Mrs. Varvel for helping us with this event!

Preschool News

Our preschool class is quickly growing and we are so thankful for all sixteen of our little friends!  We are continuing our journey through the alphabet.  Each week we focus on a different letter.  Not only do we learn the letter, but the sound(s) it makes, words that begin with that letter and how to write the letter.  Our art projects, music, and other activities are all centered on the letter of the week.  We took some time off from our weekly letters to celebrate Halloween and Thanksgiving.

We have been very busy in our room with all our various activities and holiday celebrations.  For Halloween we were so lucky to Trick-Or-Treat at the area businesses.  We are so lucky and grateful to be part of such a welcoming community!  The preschoolers enjoyed walking to each of the businesses and nursing home and showing off their costumes!  Our preschool class also recently attended the Veteran’s Day program with the rest of the school.  They enjoyed watching the older students sing and speak and were also very proud that they could say the Pledge of Allegiance along with everyone else!
