January 2018 Newsletter

Happy New Year everyone!

Welcome back!  We are into the swing of the New Year already.  We are excited to be back and are looking forward to a great 2018 with your children.

On Tuesday, January 30, 2018 and Wednesday, January 31, 2018 at 10:30 a.m. we will have The Jack Straws here as part of Northminster Preschool’s enrichment program.  They do a musical pirate show in the hall.  Parents are always invited to attend!

A calendar reminder for you: the preschool will be closed on Monday, January 15, 2018 in observance of Martin Luther King Holiday.

Our Parent Group meeting is Friday, January 12, 2018 at noon.  Lunch is provided for you.  We would love to see you there.  We will be asking for volunteers to help sort for the rummage sale and work the rummage sale January 27th.  If you work the rummage sale and/or help sort the week before, you get to shop early at the sale!  Thank you in advance for your help.

We are having our annual preschool rummage sale on Saturday, January 27, 2018 from 7:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.  Please feel free to clean out your children’s toys (gently used with all pieces), books (children and adult reading), strollers, high chairs, clothing (children only up to age 7), mini kitchens, bikes, little tike’s structures, changing tables, etc.  We cannot accept cribs or car seats.  All proceeds go to the parent group for classroom, outside and school supplies.  Any leftover donations will be donated to MOM.  A military outreach program.  All donations are tax deductible and we have forms in the office.

Since we are going into the heavy cold and flu months, please remember to keep your child home if they have an excessively runny nose, fever, diarrhea, or vomiting.  State regulations require your child to be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.  This also applies to vomiting and diarrhea. We want to keep everyone happy and healthy this year!

On behalf of the entire staff we wish you a happy and healthy 2018!  Remember, my door is always open if you have any questions, comments or concerns.
