May 2016 Newsletter

Dear Northminster Parents and Friends:

We have one more month of preschool and then Summer Camp!  The school year goes until June 16, 2015.  We will have our all school picnic on June 17, 2015 at Lindberg Park from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.  There will be more information to follow next month.

The preschool will be closed on Monday, May 25, 2015 in observance of Memorial Day.  Also, please keep an eye open for the Summer Camp letter and room assignments.  Those letters will be going home on Monday, June 8, 2015 and Tuesday, June 9, 2015. 

The parent group enrichment program this month is Pacific Animal Productions.  We will have a group here that will be bringing in animals to show the children so they can learn about the different animals in their environment.  Those shows will take place on Tuesday, May 19, 2015 and Wednesday, May 20, 2015 in the fireside room.  The show starts at 10:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

We will be having our last Parent Group meeting of the year on May 15, 2015.  We would love to see you there.  We are looking for parents who are interested in helping out for next year.  Lunch will be provided and your child can go to lunch bunch for free!  Come and see what the amazing Parent Group is all about!

We will be doing our memory tiles for the wall out on the playground by rooms 2 and 3 in May. It is a wonderful project run by a former parent.  These keepsakes on the playground wall are priceless.  This parent group sponsored fundraiser is $25.00 for a 6x6 tile.  Forms for this fundraiser will be in your child’s bag soon.  The tiles will be put up on the walls on playground as a reminder of your child’s time here at Northminster. 

Vacation Bible School registration is still open but filling up quickly.  If you would like to participate in this fun event please go to the church website at underneath the picture of the main heading, search for VBS registration, you will find the form.  If you have any problems downloading the registration form, please call Linda at the church office at 858-490-3995.

On behalf of the entire staff at Northminster Preschool, we would like to thank you for all of the small and large things you have done this year to make our school special.  Not only have you shared your unique skills with the children, you have donated supplies, time and love whenever we have needed it.  You are an amazing group of parents and I wanted to let you know that what you do for us does not go unnoticed!
