December 2018 Director's Newsletter

Dear Northminster Preschool Parents & Friends:

It is hard to believe December is upon us already!  It just seems like yesterday we were starting a new year of preschool.  We have had some tears, much laughter, and a lot of fun since September and we have made many new friends.

Our Kids Craft Workshop and Vendor Boutique was Saturday, December 1.  Thank you to everyone who participated, created, volunteered, donated, baked, and all around did a fantastic job!  We were able to make $3,500! The money we are raising is going into a fund to update the outside bathrooms on the playground.  We need around $30,000. So far the parent group has raised in the past couple of years, $15,000. We are halfway there!! Thank you everyone!

We will be having our annual children’s rummage sale on Saturday, January 26th.  If you are planning on cleaning out your children’s dressers and toy boxes, please consider saving those items for our rummage sale.  The only items we cannot take are cribs and car seats.  Otherwise, any strollers, bikes, high chairs, changing tables, toys, little tikes tables, play structures, books, clothing items ages newborn – 7 years and maternity clothing, we will take!  It is tax deductible and any items we do not sell are donated to the military outreach, MOM.

Chapel will be Wednesday, December 5th and Thursday, December 6th in the sanctuary.
