May 2017 Newsletter

Dear Northminster Parents and Friends:

We have one more month of preschool and then Summer Camp!  The school year goes until June 6, 2017 and we will close at 5:00 p.m. that day.  The picnic at the end of the year, on June 7th has been cancelled.  Summer Camp begins on June 12th and runs through July 21st.

Our annual Art Celebration night is Friday, May 12th from 6-7 p.m.  We will be having a parent group sponsored, fundraising spaghetti dinner starting at 5:15 p.m.  Tickets are $5.00 per adult, children eat free.  Come and join Northminster Families for dinner before the art show!  We will also be having a silent auction on the playground from 5:00 – 6:30 p.m.  The playground will be closed to children playing, for safety purposes.

Please keep an eye open for the Summer Camp letter and room assignments.  Those letters will be going home at the beginning of May.

The preschool will be closed Friday, May 26 and Monday, May 29th in observance of Memorial Day.  

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 different animals in their environment.  Those shows will take place on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 and Wednesday, May 24, 2017 in the fireside room at 10:15 a.m.  

We will be having our last Parent Group meeting of the year on May 5, 2017.  We would love to see you there.  We are looking for parents who are interested in helping next year.  Lunch will be provided and your child can go to lunch bunch for free!  

We will be doing our memory tiles for the walls out on the playground on May 4th and May 5th. It is a wonderful fundraising project run by a former parent.  This parent group sponsored fundraiser is $35.00 for a 6x6 tile that will be permanently affixed to the outside walls by the playground.  Forms for this fundraiser will be emailed and there will also be forms in the office.  

On behalf of the entire staff at Northminster Preschool, we would like to thank you for all 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!
